Ok so the title here may be a little bit misleading. I am a person who has really struggled over the years with their weight and I am also a person who has tried every weight loss program under the sun. I have found that as boring as this sounds, that nothing works better than eating healthy and exercising more. But today we have a fun list of things that have in some way been proven to help you not just lose weight, but lose weight without really doing anything major.
Want To Lose Weight? Hit The Sack!
We are not talking Hacky Sack here people. Many studies have been done over the years in regards to weight loss and the amount of people have said. And while many of them will say something different, the thing that they all have in common is that they say: people who only sleep for say five hours or people who have broken sleep most nights will struggle to lose weight more than those who get a good night’s sleep of say seven or more hours. So if you want an excuse to sleep more just say you are doing it to lose weight!
Want To Eat Less? Red Plate Coming Through
A study has proven that people who eat of a red plate are far less likely to over eat that people who are eating off say a normal white or even a blue, yellow or SpongeBob Squarepants plate. Now the reasons for this are really interesting. The study that was done by The Appetite which is a food journal, has revealed that the reason for this is that our minds automatically see red as a warning color. This means we are less willing to keep stuffing our faces when the food is coming from a red plate.
Want To Speed Up Your Weight Lost? Spot Of Tea Governor
Drinking tea is not just for highly sophisticated British people. Tea has been proven to be something that can give your metabolism a good kick in the butt to speed things up. Now it has been said that Herbal Tea is the tea you should be drinking to get the right effect from this. But it’s the caffeine in the tea that is speeding up your metabolism. And if you want to make yourself feel even better about your tea binge drinking, then the little bit of milk you have with your tea is giving you a calcium boost as well!
Want To Get Rid Of Weight? Your Hot Chili Here!
Now I am not a huge spicy food fan at all. As a matter of fact the sight of something spicy is enough to make my stomach quiver. But studies have shown that by grinding up just a small amount (1 gram to be exact) and then adding that to your food will actually vastly decrease your craving for salty and fatty foods. And you really do not even taste the chili all that much which for me was a huge bonus.
Want To Reach Success In Your Weight Loss Journey? Have A Big Fat Breakfast
Ok let me perhaps rephrase this. What I am talking about here is that many studies have shown that the best time of day to eat your daily intake of fatty foods is actually at breakfast. The main reason for this is that you are giving your body more time to break down and burn off all that fat such as your sausages and your bacon.
