This will certainly bring a smile on most of the people’s face who want to lose weight fast without going to gym or without work out.
Yes, this is possible.
In fact you can easily lose 5-8 pounds of weight in a month and that too with healthy way.
People often ask me questions like,
Is it really difficult to lose weight in a month?
Do we need to stop eating at night?
Should we eat only fruits for the whole day?
And many more…
The answers to the above queries are…..
It’s not difficult to lose weight in a month but it depends upon your expectations and the route (healthy or unhealthy) you want to take.
You should not stop eating at night. In fact you should eat 5-6 meals a day.
You should not only eat fruits to lose weight. There should a balanced diet.
Here a 5 simple steps that will help you to shred your weight fast.
1. Cut down on Carbs
The major step is to cut down the carbs and eat low-carb meals as much as possible.
What happens when you eliminate carbs from your diet?
As you know carbohydrates are the primary source of energy and when you drop your carbs, your body starts taking energy from the stored fat resulting in the shedding of weight.
You may lose more weight in the first week or 10 days as your body will lose weight in both the forms of water and fat.
2. Eliminate Sugar and Sweets
Sugar and sweets are fast to digest and get converted quickly into glucose that spikes your insulin (hormone) level which becomes the reason of fat deposition in the body.
Eliminating sugar and sweets for weight loss will also really help in good functioning of your body and brain.
3. Increase Protein Intake
Protein is an essential nutrient for your body. It really plays a vital role in losing weight. Protein helps you feel full for hours that cut down your craving for more food.
Protein also fosters your metabolism which assists you to get rid of the stubborn fat.
You have plenty of options available to suffice your requirement of daily protein. You can add Oats, beans, Paneer (Cottage Cheese), egg whites, chicken breast, fish, salmon etc. The best way is to have enough protein in every meal.
4. Add Fibrous Foods
Eating fiber is really important while losing weight. The best source of fiber is vegetables. Eat greens as much as possible and that too without cooking. Minimum 2 bowls of green salads are critical to get enough fiber.
The benefit of the same is that you can eat your plate full and also get a lot of essential vitamins and minerals which are necessary for good functioning of body.
A good amount of fiber in the diet makes your appetite full, eventually leading to weight loss.
Some high fiber and low calorie vegetable you can eat raw are-
Cucumber, tomatoes, bell pepper, spinach, broccoli, lettuce, carrots, onion, cabbage etc.
5. Hydrate Yourself
A particular amount of water intake is essential despite of what goal you are working on. When it comes to weight loss then it becomes all the more critical.
Plenty of benefits are associated with consumption of water and weight loss is one of those.
Keep yourself hydrated for a healthy life. I would recommend keeping a water bottle handy all the time and refilling the same as and when it gets empty.
6. Manage your stress level
When people are in stress, they mostly don’t make healthy food choices and end up eating anything (mostly unhealthy).
Stress activates the excess release of Cortisol (hormone) which increases your appetite and uplifts your urge for sugar and fatty food.
Studies have shown that that people who fail to manage their stress level are in overweight or of obese category as compared to the people who manage their stress level.
You can overcome your stress level with the help of workout, yoga, meditation, music, travelling to your favourite destination etc.
Lack of sleep makes you more vulnerable to disturb your whole routine that can contribute to weight gain.
Inadequate sleep can trigger your stress hormone (Cortisol) which results in enlarging your hunger to eat more.
Researches have shown that the obesity epidemic has been paralleled by a trend of reduced sleep duration.
So get a sound sleep of 6-7 hours at night to keep you healthy and fit.
It all depends on nutrition (what are you eating) and balanced Macros (Carbs, Protein and Fats). Feeding your body with good nutriments revitalize your mood which serve you with lower stress and good quality sleep. Don’t forget to keep your body hydrated and you will surely melt you fat.
