Endless diets should not be part of your 2014 New Year Resolutions. Statistics have proved that starving not only damages your health but also makes your mind slower and more prone to dementia later in life.
Depriving yourself of the right nutrition makes your body hang on to the extra weight and encourages it to build fat deposits. It is called survival mode and if you want a slimmer figure you should not put your body through it.
What if, you eat right, work-out a bit, but still the extra weight doesn’t surrender? Don’t despair because there are a lot of weird things out there promoting weight loss and all of them seem to work.
Most people consider vitamins a weight loss enemy when in fact they can be your very best ally. Taking one vitamin every day will help the body reduce the need for food and support the optimal function of your digestion and circulation. However, make sure you don’t swallow more than one supplement and focus on Vitamins C and D but also Omega fatty acids – the best weigh loss promoters.
You may dread the shady rooms and crave sunlight but when you go to sleep aim for complete and utter darkness. Studies have proven that sleeping with a dim light increases the need for food, while resting in a dark environment helps the body process nutrients more efficiently prolonging their effect.
As surprising as it may seem, one portion of fries or one piece of chocolate will not ruin your cleanse or diet. On the contrary, indulging yourself in a treat will support the weight loss. Get rid of the guilt and think about it as your way of rewarding your body. Remember that stress is the worst enemy of the weight loss so give yourself a break every now and then and you will see better results than you would expect.
A glass of wine
A glass …not two…wine…no other drinks.
A 13 years study from the Boston University has shown that women who are moderate wine drinkers are more prone to lose weight than the abstinent or heavy drinking ones. One glass of wine, preferably red, three times a week, can be a helpful aid for your figure. Women burn more calories when processing small amounts of alcohol than men and wine drinkers tend to eat less.
The right dishware
Smaller plate and bigger glass should be the motto of your food serving gear. Surprisingly, eating in smaller plates makes you eat smaller portions, also bigger glasses encourage you to drink more water.
Combining the two will help you achieve the surprisingly difficult task of drinking water with every meal and also reduce the amount of food you intake.
Sugar not substitutes
You will think that sugar substitutes are healthier and you might be somewhat right but all of them do severe damage to your waistline. Choose sugar instead but reduce the amounts. You mind will see it as the opportunity for a healthier lifestyle and you can go for brown organic sugar for a healthier choice.
Consider this weird tips and try them. Most of them bring small lifestyle changes which can only benefit your health and waistline.
