How To Lose Weight Without Really Trying

Sound impossible? I think not. You’ll find plenty of opportunities to slip these easy weight loss tips into your routine and watch the numbers on the scale go down. If you’ve already begun to lose weight, these tips will maximize your efforts and speed up results. The bottom line is that one pound is equivalent to 3,500 calories. Whether you make slight changes to your diet or increase exercise levels, a deficit of 500 calories a day will lead to a loss of about a pound a week for you without really trying! Here are some tips you can try:

• Chew a piece of gum. Researchers recently discovered that chewing sugar-free gum all day increases your metabolic rate by about 20 percent. It speeds up the digestive system, burns more calories, and sometimes stops a craving. This method alone could help to burn off more than 10 pounds a year.

• Pack a lunch. Dining out a lot (5 or more times per week) can make you eat more than if you dine out less frequently.

• Sprinkle flax on your cereal. High-fiber, ground flax seed can help curb your appetite and also eliminate calories. You can add it to yogurt, a muffin or your oatmeal. It is readily available in health food stores or online.

• Brush your teeth. Brushing your teeth after a meal seems to send a signal to your body that you’re done eating, and it makes your breath fresh without relying on gum and mints made with sugar that can cause you to crave something sweet. You can also brush your teeth instead of eating when you feel the craving to eat something you know you shouldn’t.

• Get rid of the remotes and other labor-saving devices. You could easily burn a lot of extra calories a day if you stop using the TV/VCR remote, garage door openers, electric can openers, riding mowers, and other things made to cut down on manual work.

• Smell your food. When you really have a craving for something like a fresh-baked cookie, try this little trick to satisfy yourself: Indulge in the smell for 30 seconds and then place a small bite on the tip of your tongue for another 30 seconds. Savoring the smell and taste can help you stay in control of food.

• Post inspirational messages. To keep yourself on track and motivated, place quotes in strategic spots where you might need some motivation: on the refrigerator, TV, dashboard of the car, or your computer. Some suggestions: “Eat to Live; Don’t Live to Eat” and “Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.”

• Eat more soup. Begin your lunch or dinner with soup and it may help you eat less during the main meal. Soup helps curb your appetite and also forces you to eat more slowly. You are more likely to pay attention to what you. Eat soups are that are low in fat and calories such as broth-based soups. Avoid creamy soups like clam chowder or cheese and bacon. Choose vegetable to work in some extra nutrients.

• Drink lots of water. Drinking about eight glasses of water every day raises your metabolism slightly and allows your body to avoid retaining extra fluid. Drink a glass of water before and during every meal and before and after workouts.

• Do not skip meals. Eating small, frequent meals help to balance your calorie intake throughout the day and also keeps your blood sugar level balanced. Instead of eating 3 big meals, try to eat 5 – 6 smaller meals throughout the day. This way you won’t overeat at meals because you’re less hungry. Skipping meals hurts your diet efforts because it causes your body to hold onto its stored food instead of burning it off.

• Stop avoiding exercise. Think about how you can work more activity into your life. Why not park your car farther away from your door at work or the mall? Take the steps to your apartment or office instead of the elevator. Walk to someone’s desk in another department to ask them a question instead of e-mailing them. You can even wear a pedometer and set yourself a goal to walk a certain number of miles per day.

• Reduce caffeine intake. Reduce your consumption of caffeine to lose weight faster. Caffeine leads to an increase of insulin in your body that stops the burning of your stored fat. This is a simple chemical reaction in your body that you can change easily by eliminating caffeine.

• Plan Your Eating. Have a snack, such as fruit, an hour before you go to a planned party or dinner. This way you will feel full and be less likely to overeat.

Keep striving for your weight loss goals. The small changes that we make every single day that will make a big change in the long run!

Losing Weight – The Facts

We all want to lose a few pounds and look great, especially through those summer months but the average person does not succeed in keeping those pounds off, if they lose the weight at all. The reason for this is that many people follow the latest “celebrity” diets which are good for quick weight loss but are not good for your health or for keeping the weight off.

It is scientifically proven that if you follow a diet where you lose to much weight to quickly then you are starving your body of certain nutrients it needs, when you start moving towards eating a normal diet your body will automatically store these nutrients within the body in case this should happen again.

If you want to lose weight there are some golden rules you need to follow

* Eat 3 meals a day
* Eat less
* Eat healthy
* Eat from all the food groups (Protein, Carbohydrates, Fat)
* Exercise

What we want to achieve is to still eat 3 meals a day, just in smaller quantities and with healthier food. Within the 3 meals we still need all the different food groups for our body to function correctly so we still need our protein, carbohydrates and our fats. Another important factor for losing weight is exercise, I don’t mean running a marathon, but if you can spare 20 or 30 minutes a day for a walk or a light jog you will certainly feel the benefits.

If you want to lose the weight quickly then it will only last short term, if you set your goals and take your time losing the weight correctly then you will see the benefits for a long time to come. Losing weight is not just about physical looks, it’s about mental well being and your future health.

Top Ten Ways to Jump Start Your Weight Loss Program

1. Eat protein at every meal, including breakfast.

2. Eliminate wheat- and flour-based products for the time being. And yes, that definitely includes bread and pasta.

3. Eat unprocessed foods. Ninety percent of what you eat should be a combination of (in this order of importance) raw vegetables, steamed vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and maybe a few fruits if necessary.

4. Reduce starch to one portion a day, and don’t eat that portion during your evening meal. Best choices are beans, sweet potatoes, and oatmeal.

5. Don’t overdo fruit: one a day maximum, and only the low-sugar, high-fiber variety. Apples, pears, plums and berries all are good choices. For now, fruit should be eaten alone or with something light, like low fat nuts. Lose the fruit juice completely.

6. Reduce or eliminate dairy for the time being, especially cow’s milk. Exceptions: reasonable amounts of low sugar, fat free yogurt.

7. Lose the booze. Despite what the “studies” say, you lose no health benefits by giving up alcohol (including wine). There is nothing essential in alcohol that you can’t get in fruits and vegetables without all the bad side effects that go along with it.

8. Stop using vegetable oils such as sunflower, safflower and corn. The supermarket kind is highly refined, and it oxidizes easily when heated, contributing to arterial plaque. Use olive oil instead, and apply it to food after the food is cooked when possible.

9. Watch which types of fat you’re eating. The amount of fat you eat is probably less important than the kind of fat you eat. The worst are fried foods, margarine and foods that contain hydrogenized or partially hydrogenized oils. The best is omega-3, found in fish and flaxseed oil.

10. Obsessively drink water: At least 8 ounces for every 20 pounds of bodyweight you’re now carrying around, each day. Every day. No excuses.

Tips to Help Lose Weight

When it comes to shedding a few extra pounds it may not be as difficult as you once first thought. However with the huge range of slimming products and pills on the market today many don’t know where to start.

This may seem obvious but the best thing you can do is start eating healthy foods. Eating healthy means you have to monitor and watch the foods that you eat. Many people think eating less is the answer but the real solution is to eat the right kind of foods. As an example a portion of chips or fries could easily be replaced by an apple or some other fruit, cutting down on any foods with high calories will certainly help.

If you are unsure exactly what healthy food is you could do a search on the internet, there are hundreds of great sites out there with lots of healthily meals and cooking instructions. Try to find meals you like and then replace it with one of your unhealthy meals. Once you start to look about you will find there is thousands of different meals to try and something for every taste.

As well as eating healthy meals taking regular exercise is also essential help lose weight. Exercise is very important as it helps your body burn off calories. If you haven’t done any exercise in a while it is very important to take things slowly at first, you don’t want to pull a muscle or damage your body in any way. If you don’t at present have an exercise plan or program or don’t know where to start it is a good idea to find a free instructional workout video on one of the popular video sites like google or youtube.

When exercising you can use special equipment such as weights and exercise balls but it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, although many people enjoy going to a club you can just as easily exercise at home using the things found in your house such as the stairs to do step ups on.

When it comes to exercising many people are just plain lazy and require some kind of motivation, if you have any friends or a partner see if they are interested in working out with you. Keeping a log or journal is also a good idea; you can even use a online blog. Keeping a track of your progress can help boost your confidence as you see your weight dropping.

The One Right Way To Lose Weight And Stay Well

Most Americans have the same problem when it comes to losing weight and staying well. The foods we like in our culture are, for the most part, terrible for us.

* Chocolate milkshake
* Chicken fried steak with steak fries
* Grilled hamburger with the works
* Mom’s favorite pie

I hope I’m not making you too hungry. You may not LOVE the items I just listed, but it’s a sure bet 90 percent of those reading this article could easily down at least one of those items RIGHT NOW!

The problem is, these items are sky high in fat and other not-so-good-for-you ingredients, plus low in fiber. It seems like EVERYTHING that tastes good isn’t good for us.

If you don’t believe me, read the ingredient tables on all the “low-fat” foods at the supermarket. Almost all of them have much higher levels of fat than you would guess. Keep reading tables and you’ll likely get a little depressed. When I tried this exercise, I left thinking that carrots were the only truly low fat item in the store.

One way to get the right idea about healthy food is to think about what we would eat if we didn’t have a supermarket up the street. Think about what great, great grandma ate on the farm 100 years ago before all today’s convenience foods took over.

Chances are you would eat vegetables you grew in your backyard. You might occasionally dine on chicken you had raised yourself. Cows were very expensive in most areas, so it’s unlikely you would eat beef more than a few times a year. If you could catch a fish, you might eat that, and it wouldn’t be deep fried!

Get the picture? That’s how almost all peoples of the world ate until very recently. Humans were designed to eat vegetables and fruits mostly, with very little preparation and no additives.

Steer your diet toward that kind of old fashioned thinking and you’ll be surprised how your weight goes down and your health improves.

And while you’re at it, remember that it’s been only fairly recently that people had automobiles. I’ll bet when your city was founded, most people walked everywhere they went. And that’s the other part of the equation. Get regular exercise to lose weight and improve your health. You don’t have to be an athlete, just get out and walk for a while several times per week.

Try these common sense methods and you’ll be surprised how well they work.

How To Change Your Eating Habits To Lose 10 Pounds

You look in the mirror and don’t have a problem with your appearance, except for slight chubbiness. Standing on the scale proves your guess: you’ve gained 10 extra pounds.

Maybe you’ve heard stories about men and women who’ve lost many pounds in only a few days. While a few people may have quickly lost weight, they probably went through tough times. Most quick weight loss methods demand that you follow extreme diets, which you’ll end up hating and quitting.

On the other hand, you can avoid quitting your diet by not going on a restrictive diet. Instead, change your eating habits for good. You may lose weight slower with this method, but you won’t suffer hardship.

How can you put the slow weight loss method to work for you? First, you could write out all foods that you eat since they make weight gain possible. Don’t just jot down desserts, like sweet potato pie and ice cream sundaes. Instead, take note of everything, including the glazed donut that you grab on the way to work or late night snacking. By seeing your complete eating habits, you can make better choices and changes.

Let’s say you record your eating habits and find that you snack too often: you actually have mini-meals before and after lunch. Ask yourself, “Am I really hungry at these times, or do I eat for the sake of eating?” Perhaps that bowl of sugary cereal in the morning leaves you empty on energy by 10 a.m. Since you can’t have lunch, you have a family size bag of corn chips. Here the solution can be to switch to a hearty, whole-grain, and sugar-free cereal so you get energy that lasts longer.

Another aspect of the slower weight loss method concerns listening to cues from your body. Cues are signs that tell you that you need to eat more or that you should stop eating, but cues can be tricky. Most of us can’t interpret these cues without letting at least 15 minutes pass, since human bodies take this amount of time to absorb food.

For instance, you’ve eaten two servings of meat loaf and a slice of chocolate cake. Now your stomach growls, asking for more food, yet you wait 15 minutes before putting another morsel in your mouth. While you wait, you read a novel- 15 minutes pass and you discover you’re full.

One additional technique for the slower weight loss method involves enjoying every bite of food, from the moment the food enters your mouth. You taste the tangy lemon zest in the Romaine salad or the creaminess of cheddar cheese on your macaroni. By savoring what you eat, you learn to appreciate food. And you develop self-control by finding satisfaction in eating moderately.

You can see why changing your eating habits makes losing 10 pounds easier— you don’t use any drastic measures. Instead, you focus on long-term choices that fit your lifestyle. By following these tips, you can change your eating habits to lose 10 pounds and keep the extra weight gone forever.

Are You Struggling With Weight Loss Management ?

It doesn’t matter whether you are trying to lose five pounds or more than 50 pounds; all of the same simple laws of physics determine whether or not you will lose weight and how fast your weight loss will occur. While everyone is different, if everyone remembered these simple guidelines and put them into practice, then they would find that these guidelines would generally lead to weight loss without the aid of any special diet plans, books, or medications.

Our weight is determined by the amount of energy that we take in as food, and the amount of energy we expend in the activities of our day. Energy is measured in calories. If your weight remains constant, you are probably taking in the same amount of calories that you are burning each and every day. If you’re slowly gaining weight over time, it is likely that your caloric intake is greater than the number of calories you burn through your daily activities.

Everyone is in control of the amount of food he or she consumes each day, so as a result, our intake of calories is something we can control with relative simplicity. To some degree, we are also able to control our output of energy, or the number of calories we burn each day. The number of calories we burn each day is dependent upon:

1. Our basal metabolic rate (BMR)
2. The number of calories we burn per hour simply by being alive and maintaining bodily functions and
3. Our level of physical activity

For some people, due to genetic (inherited) factors or other conditions, their resting metabolic rate can be slightly higher or lower than average. Our weight also plays a role in determining how many calories we burn at rest – the more calories that are required to maintain your body in its present state, the greater your body weight. As an example, a person that weighs around a hundred pounds requires less energy (food) to maintain body weight than a person who weighs 200 pounds.

Lifestyle and work habits partially determine how many calories we need each day. Someone whose job involves heavy physical labor will naturally burn more calories in a day than someone who sits at a desk most of the day (a sedentary job). For people who do not have jobs that require intense physical activity, you need exercise or increased physical activity to increase the number of calories burned.

As a rough estimate, an average woman aged 31-50 who leads a sedentary lifestyle needs about 1800 calories per day to maintain a normal weight. A man of the same age requires about 2200 calories. Participating in a moderate level of physical activity (exercising 3-5 days per week) requires about 200 additional calories per day.

In order to lose weight rather than maintain it, you will want to eat sensible, well balanced meals with small portion sizes, cut down or reduce your intake of daily calories, try with your best efforts to eliminate fats from your diet and ensure that you exercise on a regular basis.
