Top 15 Ways To Lose Weight Naturally

Losing weight naturally involves changing your lifestyle by making certain small changes in your daily routine. Making these small changes in your routine life will help you lose weight easily as well as naturally.

15 steps you need to take in order to lose weight naturally:

1. Avoid eating processed food

Processed foods like cheese, cereal, bread, tinned vegetables, etc contain high sugar, fats, and calories which have a very serious side effect on your metabolism when consumed in larger quantity.


2. Stock up on healthy food

Stocking up on healthy foods such as apple, yogurt, berries, oranges, eggs, carrots, etc will not only affect your weight but will also help you reduce eating unhealthy snacks.


3. Don’t skip breakfast

Skipping breakfast can lead to lethargy which may further lead to slow metabolism and weight gain. Eat oatmeal, eggs, fruits etc for breakfast which will make you feel more energetic and less lethargic.


4. Eat your dinner by 7 PM

Avoid eating dinner post 7 pm. Your metabolism slows down at night, which causes the undigested calories consumed to be stored as fat. That is why it is advised to have your dinner 2-3 hrs before your bedtime.


5. Eat a small meal every 2 hours

Eating small and healthy meals every 2 hours will not only improve your metabolism but it’ll also aid in faster weight loss.


6. Drink green tea

Green tea is rich in antioxidants. It helps in boosting the metabolism of your body, in turn, causing weight loss. It is advisable to start your day with a cup of green tea with lemon and honey.


7. Limit alcohol intake

Socializing gets a little tricky when it comes to losing weight and hanging out with your friends and office colleagues. In such situations, stick to a glass of wine and drink slowly.


8. Do a little bit of cardio

Working out regularly helps to balance the energy. Doing a little bit of cardio every day helps to relieve stress and it keeps your brain active. Cardio can include dancing, walking, swimming, jogging, etc. Once you’re confident or you’ve become used to working out, you can join a gym and do cardio and weight training.


9. Eat in front of the mirror

Eating in front of the mirror will not only help you to keep a check on what you’re eating but will also prevent you from overeating. You will be motivated to eat less and you won’t overeat.


10. Include food rich in fiber

Consuming high fibre foods like brown rice, oats, red rice, etc prevents absorption of fat and keeps you full for a longer period of time.


11. Avoid fried food

Fried foods like fried chicken, fries, chips, etc are high in cholesterol and have zero nutritional value. Such foods will not only increase your cholesterol but will also make your body much more prone to conditions such as heart attacks, constipation, etc.


12. Drink water

One should drink at least 3-4 litres of water in a day. Not drinking enough water slows down the metabolism of the body and leads to building up of toxic materials and disturbs the normal functioning of the cell. So, drinking an adequate amount of water is a must. You can add cucumber and mint in the water for taste.


13. Intermittent fasting

Eating pattern that cycles between eating and fasting is as Intermittent fasting. It does not specify which foods need to be consumed but it specifies when the food needs to be consumed.


14. Use smaller plates

This is one of the oldest diet tricks. Using smaller plate bluffs your brain into eating less as it changes the portion size and gives you a perception of having eaten more.


15. Eat slowly

People who eat fast tend to gain more weight compared to those who eat slow. If you eat fast, you consume more calories without even realizing that your body is full. Eating slowly helps you to eat fewer calories and helps you feel full for a longer period of time.
