Count Your Calorie Intake
The fat that gets deposited in our body is nothing but the excess calorie that we take in everyday. Suppose we take 2000 calories in a day and burn only 1500 calories, the excess calories get deposited in our body for contingencies.
Drink warm water, instead of water at room temperature, throughout the day. This is known to keep accumulation of wastes and fats in the body, in check.
Lots of weight loss diets recommend to give up carbohydrates, however, you should never do it. The carbohydrate requirements of the body should be met with brown rice, brown bread, cereals, lentils, and beans and the proteins from eggs, fish, and lean meats. Red meats should be given up.
These should be combined with exercises aimed at a particular body part, which strengthen and tone up muscles of a specific body area. Weight training, flexibility exercises and resistance training should be a part of your exercise regimen.
However, these should be undertaken only under the guidance and supervision of a trained professional. So, if you can afford, hire a trainer who would come and teach you effective weight loss exercises. Otherwise, get some exercise videos from the market and undertake exercises at home, watching them.
Healthy Weight Loss Tips
- Take five small meals in a day, instead of three.
- Have a heavy breakfast. Cereals, eggs, low-fat milk and fruits should be taken in breakfast.
- Have a light dinner, two to three hours before sleeping. This will aid in digestion.
- Eat steamed food with least oil and prefer to have broiled or roasted meat over fried one.
- Negative calorie foods like tomato and cucumber help a lot as the calories required to burn them are more than the calories that they provide.
- Salt intake results in weight gain and should be reduced.
- Cabbage hinders the formation of fat from carbs and hence it should be included in the diet.
- Two-thirds of your diet should be made of fruits and vegetables. They are full of vitamins and minerals and are very less in calories.
- Keep stress at bay. Undertake meditation and breathing exercises at home. Sleep for seven to eight hours every night. This will ensure that you do not resort to emotional eating.
