- Drink more water
An healthier choice would be to drink enough quantity of water, some green tea. All of those colas, sodas, canned juices are loaded with syrups and sugar and calories that are making you, or keeping you fat, so drink more water instead. Start your day with a cup of hot water with lemon to wake up your kidneys and liver and get that fat-flushing and body cleansing in motion. You should carry a bottle of water around with you at all times and drink from it throughout the day. Be sure to drink water before meals and you’ll feel less hungry and take in fewer calories.
- Get enough Sleep
When you stay up late and become more tired, you are more likely to grab junk for late-night snacking and late-night weight gain. Adequate sleep and recovery are also important for weight loss. People who sleep less than six or seven hours nightly or sleep poorly generally weigh more than those who get adequate and restful sleep. If you have to get up early start going to bed earlier to help increase your total sleep time. Make every effort to insure sound and undisturbed sleep, remove all of those electronics including your phone or computer from your bedroom and turn off the TV.
- Store Unhealthy Foods Out of Sight
Storing unhealthy foods where you can see them may increase hunger and cravings, causing you to eat more linking to weight gain. One recent study found that if high-calorie foods are more visible in the house, the residents are more likely to weigh more, compared to people who keep only a bowl of fruit visible.
8. Eat Fiber-Rich Foods
Eating fiber-rich foods may increase satiety, helping you feel fuller for longer. Viscous fiber is only found in plant foods. Examples include beans, oat cereals, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, oranges and flax seeds. A weight loss supplement called glucomannan is also very high in viscous fiber.
- Dark Chocolate
When you get the urge for a sweet treat, turn to dark chocolate. It will help curb your craving thanks to its insulin-resistance lowering flavonoids. The healthy fats in dark chocolate can also slow the absorption of sugar into your blood stream, preventing “insulin spikes.” Studies have shown that eating some can help put a stop to cravings for sugar, salt, and fat. However, the chocolate must be 70% cocoa, otherwise it has too much milk or sugar added to be beneficial.
