There are so many techniques to shed those pounds quickly if weight loss is just the issue.
However, many of these techniques usually involve starving yourself.
Yes, you will lose that extra weight, but you will feel unsatisfied and hungry.
If your discipline and willpower aren’t that strong, you will most likely not be able to commit.
This will only cause you to give up and go back to square one.
This article would discuss three simple ways to lose weight quickly without the need to starve yourself.
Lift Weights Every Other Day
Lifting weights can prove to be one of the easiest workouts you can do. You don’t have to go to the gym to do it.
No need to pay extra for a gym membership, a personal trainer, or some fancy weights.
You can even just lift a one-liter bottle filled with water in each hand in your living room.
Spend at least one hour every other day lifting weights.
Doing so not only burns calories, but also boosts your metabolism.
If you do not like to lift weights or if it is not ideal for you due to certain conditions (for example, if you have scoliosis), then you can do other workouts such as:
- Jogging or running
Also, try to move as much as you can.
For example, opt to take the stairs instead of the lift.
Walk your dog.
Stretch your arms and legs every morning when you wake up.
Consume a Diet That Includes of Vegetables, Fats, and Proteins
The ideal meal consists of low-carb vegetables, a source of fat, and a source of protein. If you do this, you will meet the daily recommended carbohydrate intake of 20 to 50 grams.
For the low-carb vegetables, you may choose from the following:
- Swiss chard
- Brussel sprouts
You may put as much of these vegetables onto your plate as you want.
As for the sources of fat, you may choose from the following:
- Avocado oil
- Coconut oil
- Olive oil
Coconut oil is the best type of fat for cooking.
It contains high amounts of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) that can increase your metabolism and are more fulfilling than the other fats.
Lastly, for the sources of protein, you may choose from the following:
- Eggs – the best ones are pastured eggs or eggs enriched with Omega 3.
- Fish and Seafood – lobster, shrimp, trout, and salmon are the best choices.
- Meat – Chicken, lamb, pork, beef, etc.
I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to consume a lot of protein.
This has been proven to increase metabolism by 80-100 calories per day.
In addition, it can result in the decrease in late-night urges to eat by 50%.
Also, it can make you feel so full that you automatically consume 441 fewer calories daily.
Bottom line is, protein is king when it comes to weight loss.
Stay Away from Starchy and Sugary Foods
Lastly, the most vital step in losing weight quickly is to avoid consuming starchy and sugary foods such as the following:
- Potatoes chips
- French fries
- Black, lima, and pinto beans
- Pastries such as donuts, bagels, muffins, and cupcakes
These foods trigger the discharge of insulin the most. Insulin is the primary hormone in the body used for storage of fat.
When the insulin levels decrease, it becomes a lot easier for fat to get out of storage and the body burns down the fats, not the carbohydrates.
Decreasing insulin levels also make it easier for your kidneys to expel excess water and sodium from the body, reducing bloating.
