So you got your butt in gear and decided to finally lose those extra pounds. Congrats! Don’t stop now that it’s a success, keep on going until it becomes a permanent improvement of the way you feel and look.
1. Forget about old diets
Ok I know it can be depressing when a diet doesn’t work like it did on the commercials, but you need to know that those are just there for making money. They don’t care about your health or appearance, they only want your money. No exceptions!
2. Drink a lot of water
This is really important. You should drink at least 2 liters of water per day, if not it will be difficult for your body to get rid of toxins that are built up in it. This can cause side effects like accidents, fever and even death.
3. Don’t eat before you go to bed
This is a pretty popular tip, but it still helps. You should go to bed with an empty stomach so your body has more time to clean itself up and burn fat while you sleep.
4. Don’t eat when you are angry, sad or watching television
This is another helpful tip. When you feel those strong emotions your body releases a hormone that makes you feel hungry even if your stomach isn’t really feeling it. So don’t fall for it and resist the temptation to eat!
5. Eat your morning eggs with vegetables
If you don’t know what food to eat on a diet you should try this. Eggs are low in fat and high in protein, which will help your body burn fat more quickly. Vegetables have the same effect but they also provide important vitamins that keep your system healthy.
6. Drink coffee instead of juice
Who said that quitting might be hard? If you’re tired of drinking juice every morning you should give coffee a try. It’s just as refreshing and it also helps your body burn fat more quickly.
7. Eat more lean meat
Eating a lot of fat might be helpful, but too much fat will also slow down your weight loss process. Instead you should eat at least 2-3 times more lean meat than fruits and vegetables.
