7 tips for weight loss without exercise
For most of us, it's that time of year when we start thinking more seriously about weight loss. We're usually told that if we want to lose shed weight before summer starts, we need to exercise...
But sports and intensive workouts aren't for everyone. Sure, you can force yourself to do it, but how long can you keep it up if you're not enjoying it? It's good to be self-aware and really think about whether you're approaching your body transformation in the right way.
If your plan is to sweat it out at the gym for 2 hours every day, while you're hating every minute of it, then you're bound to be disappointed with your results.
Fortunately, there is another way to lose weight!
Instead of exercising, you can also:
1. Avoid sugary drinks. This small change can make a big difference. Get used to drinking water, unsweetened tea and coffee as much as possible.
2. Drink plenty of water. Experts say that hunger and thirst are both controlled by the same area in our brain, meaning the signals often get mixed up. You can prevent a false feeling of cravings by drinking plenty of water throughout the day.
3. Eat without multitasking. Studies show that we eat more when we're distracted by something else, for example if we're browsing our phone or watching TV. You can help your brain better recognize when your stomach is full by eating without distractions.
4. Reduce portions and chew more slowly. Instead of giving up your favourite foods altogether, try eating smaller portions more slowly. No more busy lunches at your desk, take the time to really enjoy your food!
5. Go for a walk or a hike with a friend. Movement doesn't have to be tedious. If you're having great conversation, it's going to feel easy. And even if it's not a strenuous walk, it's still better for you than sitting on the sofa.
6. Consume more fibre. Fibre expands like a sponge in the stomach, making it a natural appetite suppressant. Good, healthy sources of fibre include whole grains, beans, and other fruits and vegetables.
