Based on the title of this guide, you may be wondering, “How in the heck can I lose weight while enjoying my food?”
Don’t worry, I will not be teaching you some weird dieting tricks.
Instead, I’m going to refresh your memory on simple eating habits that you already know, but may not have given any thought to lately.
As human beings, we tend to overcomplicate things (myself included).
Have you noticed that it’s the simple uncomplicated fundamental approaches that usually bring you the greatest results and oftentimes faster?
For example, the foundation of building wealth is to spend less than you earn.
The biggest fundamental of losing weight is to burn more calories than you consume on a daily basis.
In this quick guide, you will also learn some powerful fundamentals.
Let’s jump right into this…
WAY 1: Eat Your Delicious Foods Very Slowly
Eating fast allows you to consume more foods than your body needs at any given meal.
It takes a certain amount of time for your stomach to send a signal to your brain that it already has enough food in it.
When you eat too fast, your brain isn’t able to accurately monitor how much food you eat at any given time, which causes a delay in communication with the stomach.
This is a recipe for unwanted weight gain.
The key is to take your time by eating at a slower rate.
WAY 2: Chew Your Foods Properly
When you eat, it is best that you chew your food thoroughly. This can ensure proper digestion and assimilation of nutrients in your body. It can also make you eat slower than usual, which is a good thing. Chew your foods as much as you can, to achieve your weight loss goals sooner. I’m going to repeat the importance of chewing your food completely and eating slowly.
WAY 3: Enjoy Your Meals
Enjoying your food does not necessarily mean you eat it as fast as you can. In fact, it’s best you savor it more. Try to appreciate its looks, smell, taste, and texture. When you do that, you will have a more pleasant experience consuming your food. Eating slower is a sure path to eating less which can result in more weight loss.
WAY 4: Don’t Skip Breakfast
Breakfast is actually the most important meal of the day. Because of that, you should not skip it. Doing so is one of the easiest ways to become overweight due to a slowing of your metabolism. This can also encourage binge eating.
WAY 5: Eating Oats For Breakfast
Many people today eat cooked oats for breakfast in an attempt to lose weight.
Oats are filled with fiber which makes you feel full for long periods of time.
This is beneficial because feeling full prevents you from excessive snacking and can keep you satiated until lunchtime.
Thus, it can help you control your portions when you do eat.
WAY 6: Eating Prior To Going To Bed
If it is your usual practice to eat before going to bed, you should make sure you do it 3 hours before. It’s a known fact that your metabolic rate is much slower while asleep.
In other words, if you eat lots of foods just before you go to sleep, your body will convert the excess calories into stored fat.
WAY 7: Clear Your Cupboard Of Unhealthy Foods
When you see chips and other unhealthy foods that you crave, you will be tempted to eat them. Thus, it is best if you don’t see them at all. With that said, it is time you clear those junk foods from your cupboard. Then replace them with healthy alternatives.
WAY 8: Eating Fruits And Vegetables
Eating fruits and veggies is one of the best things to do to lose weight since they are filled with vitamins and minerals, as well as enzymes. However, it is best if you consume them in their raw form. This is because processing or cooking them kills the essential nutrients.
TIP: If you just can’t bring yourself to eat raw veggies, simply steam them for no more than 7 minutes. Some of the nutrients will be destroyed, but most of them will survive.
WAY 9: Reward Yourself From Time To Time
Whenever you achieve your short-term goals, such as losing 1 to 2 pounds in a week or two through dieting, you should come up with a way to reward yourself. One example is to purchase a smaller shirt or pants that you really want. By doing that, you will become more motivated to melt off the rest of those unwanted pounds so you can fit into them.
WAY 10: Enjoy Your Favorite Foods
Even when you are on a diet, you should still enjoy foods that you consider your favorites. However, you should do it in moderation. When you eat small amounts of your favorite foods, you will not feel that your diet is too difficult to keep up with. Because of that, you’ll most likely remain consistent with your healthy dieting regimen.
