7 Simple Tips And Tricks To Help You Lose Weight

By  3 Comments

Almost everything in life can be achieved by sheer willpower. The same is the case with losing weight. Resisting temptations and eating right does require a lot of willpower! It may however be noted that resisting mouth-watering treats may not always be possible, and women often end up giving up on their willpower after some point in time or the other. So why not go for an option that altogether does away with the need for testing your willpower?

The below listed tips and tricks will help you lose weight without testing your willpower to the limit:

  1. Always carry healthy snacks with you: Whenever you go out, ensure that you carry healthy snacks. You may carry them in your purse or your gym bag; but make sure that you have them at all times. Thus, whenever you have hunger pangs, you have ready access to healthy snacks that can satiate your hunger. You now need not go looking for less healthy food options to quell your cravings.
  2. Trim down the plates: Change your plates and opt for smaller ones. It is but a fact that such downsized plates will hold less food. It may however be noted that varied studies have indicated that eating off smaller plates makes us believe that we are eating more than normal. Avoid going for really small plates; instead you can trim down your plate size by about 2 inches diametrically. This will result in less consumption of calories and subsequent easy weight loss!
  3. Cook for the week at one go: List out the things that you would eat for the week such as salads, veggies, eggs, etc. You may then prepare these items for the entire week and thus avoid the temptation of trying something out of the usual.
  4. Store junk foods in the top cabinets: Humans are inherently lazy. Studies have shown that we tend to eat less when we have to move to get the food. Thus, if junk food items are stored at a place that is not easily accessible then we will invariably end up eating less of it.
  5. Do not avoid breakfasts: Eat a healthy breakfast! Every day! It will ensure that the levels of blood sugar are kept in check, which in turn will prevent overeating or hunger attacks during the day.
  6. Cut your food: This is another psychological tactic that makes us feel full even after eating small quantities of food. When you cut up food into small pieces, then the overall amount of food seems more, thereby prompting us to eat less. This option works best with foods like sandwiches and steak rather than small foods like fries or grapes.
  7. Avoid the supermarkets: Supermarkets are a haven of temptations. So if you are the kind that goes to a supermarket with a list of healthy food items but comes back with loads of junk foods and sugary treats, then its best to avoid the supermarkets altogether. You may ask your partner to do the grocery shopping, or you may get them home-delivered. There are many grocery shops that offer home delivery services. Doing so will not only help you avoid bad foods and thus lose weight, but will also leave you with extra time that you can dedicate to exercising or other activities.

    Nice list. Its still hard to do…
    The willpower is probably the most important, but these tricks sound very supportive. Especially the healthy snacks one sounds interesting, you have a good list for healthy snacks?

    I think junk food shouldn’t be stored anywhere. If you know you have an issue, just don’t buy them at all. Then your lazyness works for you and you won’t want to go to the store just to get a candybar.

    Awesome list tho! That one about healthy snacks rings especially true. You are much more likely to eat healthy when you have it handy.
