Now I am not the kind of person who would recommend to you guys that you should be losing a ton of weight each week. As a matter of fact studies have shown that a slow, steady and sensible weight loss is the best way to not only lose weight, but also to keep it off as well. But I know how hard it can be to lose weight and sometimes you wish you had a little turbo button that could give you a little boost. Well I do not have plans for some kind of turbo button, but I do have some proven ways to speed up your weight loss.
Double Team Your Body With Fiber
As a kid I always would hear people say that you need more fiber in your diet. It’s only the last few years that I have realized that not only is fiber important, but a fiber rich diet can really do wonders for your weight loss. Foods high in fiber such as, brown rice, beans, chickpeas and figs to name a few. These types of food will not only make you feel really full, making you not want to eat more, but they also… how can I put this without being too graphic and making you guys lose your lunch? Let’s just say they flush out your body.
Water, Water Everywhere, Wont You Have A Drink?
This is something I heard from. I actually think it was Homer Simpson. Anyway that is not important. The point here is that you should be drinking at least and I mean at the very least a liter per day. I actually drink more than this! The reason for drinking so much water is that first of all it keeps you hydrated. Second of all it will fill you up making you not want to eat as much food and lastly your body’s metabolism will keep running and burning fat, even though it is water that has filled you up.
Early Workout Speeds Up Your Weight Loss
Working out is great, but studies have shown that working out in the morning will be more beneficial than any other time. The reason for this is that it gives your metabolism a kick start that will make it burn like a furnace for the rest of the day. So while you may dread the thought of waking up at say 6am to hit the gym or do your work out DVD, you will be amazed at how great you feel once you start the work out. Not only is working out a wonderful way to kick start your metabolism, it is also a great way to put your mind in a positive state for the day ahead. The hardest part about working out early in the morning is actually getting your butt out of bed!
Healthy Breakfast Is Certain Way To Put Your Weight Loss In Turbo Mode
After you have worked out. and showered. you want to make sure you have a nice big and healthy breakfast. Now it can be so tempting to think that by skipping breakfast you are getting thinner. This is not the case. By eating a good, low fat and healthy breakfast you are filling yourself up with low fat and healthy food that should last you until lunch. This takes away the chance of you getting hungry at 10am and hitting the vending machine.
