8 Quick Tips To Lose Weight

An overweight person not only looks unattractive but also has high risks of having cardiovascular diseases and other health related problems. In this article we are going to discuss some weight loss programs that really work. Weight loss should happen in a healthy manner by making certain dietary and lifestyle changes. Scroll down for some more tips on diet plans to lose weight, followed by a sample healthy diet plan.

1. Take five small meals spread throughout the day. Do not remain hungry for long hours. A common mistake which people make is to skip breakfast in the morning. If you think carefully, the day we skip breakfast, we actually tend to eat much more in our other meals, thus adding up our calories! So, eat at regular intervals but at the same time stick to healthy foods and keep the portion size small.

2. The most important first step is to drink more fluids, especially water. Water helps you to feel full and it also flushes calories and fat from your body. Many experts believe that what we think of as hunger pangs are actually the first signs of dehydration. How much is enough? If your urine is clear or a pale straw color, you are drinking enough water. If it is golden or yellow, drink more.

3. No, I’m not talking about building big muscles, I’m referring to your larger muscle groups. By exercising your larger muscle groups (back, legs, etc.) with compound weight training (workouts that involve multiple body parts in one movement such as bench presses, dead-lifts, squats, push-ups, etc.), you will burn off a TON of calories during the workout and help increase your resting metabolic rate.

4. Muscles need to be worked at a capacity that is higher than what they are used to, in order to build strength. When you start out with weights, aim at working with a weight that allows you to complete a set of repetitions; you need to be able to complete the set, but just about. The last repetition should tire you out, but you need to be able to maintain form when doing it. The more you work out, the more your body’s capacity will increase, so keep at it.

5. Give up on red meats. Instead eat chicken, fish and include eggs in your diet. Researches have shown that eggs contain vitamin B12 which actually aids in fat and weight loss. So, preferably, include an egg every day for breakfast in your weightloss diet.

6. At meal times, concentrate on these four foods: lean protein, vegetables, fruit and whole grains. Eliminate sugar, salt and extra fat from your plate as much as possible. Do not go back for seconds. Chew each bite slowly and savor the taste.

7. Eat Consistently – To boost your metabolism, decrease hunger pangs, and decrease cravings, eat 4-6 small healthy meals daily.

8. Strength training stresses the muscles and adequate rest is imperative for your body to be able to recuperate and further benefit. If you strength train on consecutive days, make sure you don’t work the same muscle groups, so divide your weekly schedule accordingly. Most women will benefit from alternating days of cardio and strength training for effective weight loss.
