10 Effective Weight Loss Tips For Women ( Because It Is Thanksgiving)

 

 

It is tough to stick to healthy choices through the year, let alone when the holiday season is around the corner. Shedding those inches is not easy, but if you keep in mind some simple rules to stick by, weight loss will cease to be the intimidating challenge it seems to be. Here are a few simple tips for losing those pounds & keeping them at bay. And it does not involve starving yourself 


1- Get Social: Check out online communities (on Facebook, Twitter, or other forums) that provide support and encouragement. Download apps that monitor weight loss and connect with others on the platform. One study showed that adults on a weight-watch who listened to weight-loss podcasts and used Twitter in tandem with a diet and physical activity monitoring app lost more weight than those who did not go social. Sharing progress and setbacks on social media can help you feel accountable for your goals. And of course, provide the much-needed encouragement on not-so-good days.

 And making some new friends never hurts

 

2- Keep A Food Journal: Keeping a track of what you’ve eaten in a day keeps you accountable and aids in weight loss. Monitor your food intake and log into your food diary every day. In fact, people who stick to food diaries are more likely to lose weight than those who don’t. Recording each bite helps you be more aware of the food you eat, plus when and how often you eat them.

 

 

3- Eat More In The A:M  : People who eat a hearty breakfast tend to eat fewer calories throughout the day. Don’t starve yourself on coffee till mid-morning because that will only lead to binge eating later. Stick to a good breakfast with plenty of proteins to keep you full and keep you from snacking before lunch

 

 

4- Add Protein to your diet: Pumping up on the protein is very helpful because it is slow release, unlike simple carbohydrates. Hence proteins keep you full for longer. It can help promote a healthy weight because high protein diets are associated with greater satiety. Plus, protein is important for healthy muscle growth. Animal sources aren’t the only option—try alternatives like quinoa and lentils.
5- Consume the healthy fats: The mistake most of us make while aiming to eat healthy is cutting down on fats, totally! That is wrong on so many levels, especially for women. Fats are an extremely important part, not only for energy but to absorb fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E & K. Get healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats from olive oil, nuts, coconut oil, seeds, and fish. Pro tip: Combining fat with fiber has been shown to increase fat’s power to make us feel full.
6- Get Busy Cooking: I do not mean that literally!! But rustling up your own meal is no huge task. That way you can balance your meal sizes also- don’t have a big lunch and a big dinner on the same day. If you overeat at one meal, you can cut back at the next. Use nonstick spray to sauté foods. Or rub oil onto the pan with a paper towel for the lightest possible coating. Your favorite order or take away from your neighborhood restaurant—is likely an oversized portion, which can result in the increased caloric intake. And when I say cook, I mean yummy but healthy food options (we’re talking: quesadillas, stir-fry, and burgers).
 

7- Switch to smaller size plates: Plate sizes have increased over the past millennium. When it’s time to sit down for dinner, choose a size-appropriate plate or bowl. Using a smaller plate (eight to 10 inches) instead of a tray-like plate (12 inches or more) can make us feel fuller with the same amount of food. How does that work? The brain may associate any white space on your plate with less food. Plus, smaller plates generally lead to smaller portions. Brilliant, huh??!

8 – Eat more snacks: Skipping snacks and sticking to three meals a day won’t necessarily lead to weight loss: Low-calorie consumption can actually slow metabolism. Eating less than three times a day may benefit those who are obese, but skipping meals throughout the day and eating one large meal at night can lead to some undesirable outcomes (like delayed insulin response) which will increase the risk of diabetes. Instead of forgoing breakfast or lunch, stick to a few meals a day with healthy snacks between them. Snack on nuts, low salt crackers, fruits, etc.
9- Take more time in the sack: Sleep not only reduces stress, helps us heal faster, and prevents depression, it can also help shave off pounds. That’s because sleep loss is linked to stress and the metabolism of glucose(sugar in the blood). Moral of the story: Sleep is associated with less weight gain. If you find it difficult to get enough sleep, try exercising in the day, or a warm bath before sleep or some calm meditative music. And try other solutions for extra Zzzs like turning off electronics in the bedroom and avoiding large meals late at night.
10- Incorporate waist training into your workout: We all know the benefits of exercise. It is widely recognized that exercise aids in weight loss. But many people have the wrong idea about what kind of workouts are best for dropping weight. There is a common belief that doing long cardiovascular workouts alone will result in quick weight loss. But surprisingly, cardio alone isn’t the key to quickly shedding pounds. Research has revealed that long stints of exercise aren’t enough to help you lose weight — let alone lose it quickly. So don’t go thumping that treadmill for 60 minutes. Instead, be smart because better results can be achieved by just 25-30 minutes of exercise daily. Using a waist trainer which is specially made for the gym helps in shedding that hard-to-lose abdomen fat with their thermal compression technology. At the same time, the waist cincher will also flatten your core & prevent lower back injury, as a result of lifting weights.
