Dieting hard is surely one of the ways to losing weight but let’s not forget that’s not the only way! You can lose weight by strategically planning and then most importantly executing it. We all are not the same; some people are able to go through the grind and most are not! Here are few strategies to lose weight without dieting hard.
Don’t be on a crash diet
You don’t need to crash diet and do some drastic changes in your dietary habit instantly, as it might cause more harm than good. Crash dieting is extremely harmful on one’s health and can reverse the weight loss when you’re off the extreme dieting, thus brings you back to the same point where you started from.
Set short term goals and Stay committed
The most important thing is placing you to succeed and setting up short term goals and then see them through by being committed. Commitment is the biggest challenge that people face when they are dieting for weight loss or on a weight training program. When you have a proper plan, you envision things clearly and you know where to reach and how. By having short term goal, it’s easier to see progress and results on a regular basic and you are able to figure out whether the things are going your way or are you falling behind.
Plan and prepare your meals
Planning what to eat and preparing meals for days ahead is not only good but an excellent way to stay away from eating at café’s and dinners. This eliminates one from eating junk food and is not hard on your wallet too. By doing the above you can eat healthy food, eat on time and save money.
Eat small meals and Track your Macro’s
It’s always better to eat 4 to five meals a day rather than 2 or 3 heavy meals. It helps you in increasing your metabolism which is vital in burning fat and thus helps in shedding weight. I suggest having 3 to 4 meals and 1 or 2 snacks; this will help your body to breakdown the food quickly and release energy quickly compared to that of large meals. Take advantage of technology and use fitness Apps, like myfitnesspal to track your macros.
Stay Hydrated and eat super food
Water is not only essential to stay hydrated but also helps a great deal in losing weight and maintaining a slim waist. Drink at least 2 to 3 gallons of water a day, certainly it takes a bit of time if you are not used to drinking so much water.eat lots of super food, they are rich in vitamins and nutrients needed to fuel and strengthen your body. Some of the super foods are Kale, salmon and Blueberries.
Cut down on sugar and do Cardio
Last but not the least cut down on sugar and do cardio at least 2 to 3 days a week. If you are into any sport, it’s icing on the cake as staying active burns more calories especially if you are playing a sport.
