5 Easy Ways To Lose Weight
Spring has sprung, which means we’re all wearing a little less clothes and feeling a bit more aware of the state of our bikini bods. You don’t need to starve yourself or deprive yourself into a better body. In fact, our extreme diets and lifestyle overhauls often just end up in overwhelm, while small changes committed to over a consistent period of time can yield long lasting results.
I rounded up five small, easy changes to make to your daily routine that’ll help kick start your fitness and revolutionize your overall health.
Here’s how to start small and inch your way into the body of your dreams.
Beyond it being the fountain of youth, as it hydrates skin and strengthens hair and nails, consuming a gallon of water a day will help cut food cravings. Studies show that drinking water a half hour before meals increases weight loss by 44% over 3 months.
Most of us spend so little time moving that by adding just a 30-minute walk to our day, we can easily transform the state of our body. Grab your favorite beats or your best gabbing girlfriend and take a brisk walk once every day. Your body will respond to this tiny little gift if you just stick with it!
3. Add Greens
Most diet fads fade because we feel the pain of depriving ourselves, but food really is meant to be both joyous and nourishing. A lot of us go wrong by forgetting the nourishing part. Many cravings for sugary processed foods come from the fact that our bodies are simply missing the nutrients that would cut those cravings in half. Keep eating all your favorite foods but look for opportunities to add more greens. Over time, one green juice a day can significantly detox your body and begin to naturally cut cravings for the junk.
4. Quit Just One Thing
Many of us can’t maintain a diet because ditching all our favorite things is a shock to our system. Too much change, too fast, results in a quick return to the land of comfort food. Pick just one of your vices and get rid of it for good. Maybe its booze, or bread, or sugar. Take one of these little things out of your life, but stick to all the other things you love. Do this for 30 days and you will see a change!
One of the easiest ways to gain weight is sleep deprivation. Sleep deprivation can cause our bodies to make poor decisions throughout the day. According to recent studies, getting the right amount of sleep cuts food cravings and helps regulate metabolism. Beauty sleep is a real thing, people.
