9 Proven Ways to Lose Weight Without Diet or Exercise

 

1)Eat only when you are hungry

For many of us, saying no to food, especially desserts and biscuits at work, is difficult. And our helplessness to say no to snacks constitutes a major reason for weight gain. So say no to that extra biscuit and ensure that you are only eating when you are hungry and not snacking during a boring meeting to avoid over-eating on a daily basis.

 

2)Replace junk food with nuts and fruits

Swap your 4 am and even 4 pm hunger pang options — chips, biscuits, desserts and everything under the unhealthy sun — with nuts and fruits. Our advice: always carry an apple/orange/or small fruit. They are super nutritious and also high in fibre. Fibre helps in maintaining healthy weight unlike the empty calories from junk food.

 

3)Drink lots of water

  Drinking water prior to meals can make you feel full for a longer amount of time. Many times, the body is actually not able to identify between hunger and thirst and we end up eating to quench our thirst. So drink at least 3-4 litres of water everyday to avoid this.

 

4)Eat smaller meals

Portion sizes have risen during the last few decades, especially at restaurants. Bigger portions encourage people to eat more and have been linked to an increase in weight gain and obesity.  One study in adults found that doubling the size of a dinner meal increased calorie intake by 30%.

Eating just a little less might help you eat significantly fewer calories. And you probably won’t even see the difference.

 

5)Adjoin fibers, proteins, and good fats in your meals

Broccoli, carrots and sweetcorn for fiber intake,  protein in the form of eggs, tofu, seeds and nuts and good fats from avocados can work wonders for your body and also help you stay full for a longer amount of time. Thereby restricting the need to eat in between meals and also drinking ungodly amounts of coffee.

 

6)Mindful Chewing

Our brain needs time to assess that we’ve had enough to eat.

Chewing your food slowly, which is associated with decreased food intake, increased fullness and smaller portion sizes. How fast  you finish your meals may also affect your weight. The study reports that faster eaters are more likely to gain weight than slower eaters Fast eaters are also much more likely to be obese. Indulge into the habit of eating more slowly, it may help to count how many times you chew each bite.

 

7)Practice mindful eating 

Mindful eating may lessen food cravings and improve portion control.

To practice mindful eating, one should avoid distractions, including televisions, laptops, and reading materials. Start to eat at a table, concentrate on how the food tastes, and be aware of signs that the body is full.

 

8)Sleep well and avoid stress

An unmanaged sleep cycle and excessive stress can imbalance several important appetite-regulating hormones and cause you to snack more during the day. Thus, try to pack in at least 8 hours of sleep daily. This will also help manage your stress levels.

9)Eliminate sugary drinks 

Extra sugar may very well be the single worst ingredient in the diet today. Beverages like soda have been associated with an increased risk of many diseases. It’s very simple to consume excess calories from sugary drinks because liquid calories don’t affect fullness the way solid food does. Avoiding these beverages entirely can provide enormous long-term health benefits. However, note that you should not swap soda with fruit juice, as it can be just as high in sugar. Hearty beverages to drink instead include water, coffee, and green tea.
