One of the reasons we love flipping through popular celebrity magazines is to check and admire the fabulously toned and sculpted figures of your favorite icons. Everyone envies the perfectly shaped bodies and would love to have a body they can flaunt and be happy with.
Unfortunately, many of us think that the only probable reason the celebs have such an hour-glass figure is that they have the luxury of a personal trainer or dietician.
Well, that is not true.
See, with determination, patience, and perseverance, you can still rid that baby fat, make drastic changes on your body and achieve your desired body figure, without necessarily having to spend money on fitness classes, or gyms, because you are not even sure they will work for you.
In the article below, we have compiled 8 effective tips that will allow for fast weight loss in the comfort of your home.
Our tips do not entail drastic life changes, but rather a re-adjustment of your lifestyle, change in dietary choice and exercising.
Start your Day with a Gulp of Water
Once you hit the blankets, gulp down a glass of water. Drinking water on an empty stomach spruces your body for the rest of the day as well as repressing hunger pangs. Similarly, water plays an integral role in flushing out the harmful toxins and contributing to faster weight loss.
Have a Nutritious Breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal, and skipping it is not a good idea, especially when it comes to weight loss.
See, breakfast provides you with the energy you need for the rest of the day`s activities and skipping it will only weaken you and increase craving and lead to over-indulgence during lunch.
So, to start your day, have a nutritious and wholesome breakfast, ideally consisting of wholegrain cereal, yogurt, fruits or low grain milk.
Observational studies indicate that those who take breakfast have a lower Body Mass Index (BMI) compared to those who do not take breakfast.
And if you do not have metabolic or blood sugar concerns, you can go without your breakfast till 10 a.m.
The rationale behind a late breakfast is that it helps in improving the levels of Human Growth Hormone (HGH), particularly for those who are aged 25 years and above. HGH help to boost lean muscle mass and diminishing fat.
Do Not Skip Meals
Traditionally, people have been thinking that skipping meals is an effective way to lose weight fast.
Unfortunately, it`s not.
Skipping a meal will only increase your cravings and hunger, causing you to overindulge in your next meal.
Equally, skipping meals slows down your metabolism rate.
Ideally, you should not stay more than 5 hours without having something to eat.
When eating, ensure that you eat only in small amounts to make you light. Heavy food takes a longer time to digest, and hence, taking small amounts of light meals will significantly help you in losing oodles of flab within no time.
Rather than eating three times, try eating six times a day of light but healthy meals. A light and healthy diet will stop instances of stomach bloating and kick out the habit of binging on unhealthy snacks in between the meals.
Have Fruits Before a Meal
Like water, taking fruits before you eat is crucial as it detoxifies your body as well as provide the energy the body needs for losing weight.
Hence, you should take fruits 30 minutes before you eat for easy and fast digestion.
Never Let Lethargy Seep into You
Lethargy and sedentary lifestyles are the main culprits for your fitness regimen.
Rather than spending time on the couch watching Netflix, it`s advisable that you become agile at the very least; do some household chores and try walking as much as you can.
And if your work entails sitting a lot, then you must walk or move around after every 30-45 minutes to avoid adding on your weight.
Another habit that you should kick is that one of sleeping after meals. Following the rest after heavy meal myth will do you no good, other than add on your weight. It`s recommended that you walk for 30 minutes after taking your meal as it helps in easy and fast loss of weight by helping in fast food digestion.
Have a Proper Sleep
Sleep plays an essential role in our weight loss regimen.
Either having too much sleep or less of sleep can have a considerable effect on your weight.
Too much sleeps results to the effects of lethargy, while sleep deprivation throws your body`s hormones off balance, especially insulin and hunger triggering hormones.
It`s therefore recommended that you have at least 7-8 hours of restful sleep.
This will give your body ample time to kill all the excess fat and start over with a new portion of the body, therefore, making it much easier to lose weight.
Indulge in Regular Exercises
Besides a healthy diet, it`s important to engage in workouts as they are effective in supplementing your diet in your weight loss efforts.
Here, you do not need the expensive gym equipment, but rather simple exercises will go a long way in cutting your weight.
Simple to moderate workouts such as squats, plank crawl, walking lunge, leaps, extensions, triceps push-ups and other can provide you with immense weight loss and health benefits.
Moreover, they are practicable at home without needing complex equipment.
Keep Tabs of your Weight
Weight is quite interesting as it does not occur in a happenstance but rather creeps in your body slowly. In most cases, you might even not notice the difference in your weight.
To avoid falling into the weight trap, you should always check on your weight and never ignore even the slightest weight gain, as this weight will gradually and ultimately result in obesity.
