7 Weight Loss Rules for Fast Results
The easiest tweaks to get you feeling lighter & slimmer in no time. The internet is full of weight loss ideas so we've picked 7 of our favourites to help you slim down & get results in a couple weeks.
1. DITCH PROCESSED FOODS
It's so easy to feel like you need them but in the end they're so unsatisfying. They cause cravings for more food than your body actually needs which unfortunately means "weight gain" fast . Here's our super top tip, If you can't pronounce the ingredients, the food is a serious no-go! Trust us!
2. CUT OUT THE BUBBLES
It's a classic but it's huge! Alcoholic drinks are high in calories & dehydrating but worst of all they make it nearly impossible to stay away of unnecessary snacks & nibbles. This won't come as a surprise but studies prove women eat far more after drinking alcohol. If you don't stop then you'll really struggle to see the fast results.
3. GET THAT FIBRE
We agree, it's all about low-carbs these days, but don't miss out on fibre. It's proven to help you feel fuller for longer. You could sprinkle flaxseed onto yoghurt or maybe some sliced almonds to your salad.
If you're really need a carb fix then a small portion of quinoa, barley, or brown rice will do the trick. Read: 6 Scientific Breakfast Tips: To Speed Up Weight Loss
4. KEEP EATING
Eating regularly & steadily over the course of the day feeds your metabolism and keeps it burning calories at a steady rate. Big meals, actually, slow it down.
As a guide eat three small meals (300 to 350 calories each) and two snacks (100 to 150 calories each) and drink plenty of fresh water.
5. KICK THE BLOAT
This isn't really a weight loss tip but if you're heading to the beach you probably should know that onions, peppers and broccoli, all cause bloating
Stick with water-based veg like spinach, asparagus and cucumbers. Fruits with potassium like bananas and oranges also help to get rid of water retention.
6. STAY HYDRATED
If you don't drink enough water then the cells in your body will start to retain it. Drinking 2 to 3 litres a day is one of the easiest tips to produce fast weight loss results.
Sip away slowly and it'll hit your bloodstream rather than just filtering out through your liver. That way you won't be running to the loo every 10 minutes!
7. LOVE PROTEIN
A high protein diet will help keep you feeling fuller & more satisfied for longer whilst fending off those unnecessary snack cravings. Keep it lean, light & protein rich.
