Why is it difficult to lose weight?
Because when you lose 1 kg, you gain 2 next. It's the famous yoyo diet that drains so many wallets. However, scientists have found effective strategies to lose weight.
But it is also a business problem. The diet companies don't necessarily want to provide you with a definitive method.
They sell you a ready-made solution for weight loss fast because it's seller. And they don't have to tell you how to get bigger afterwards, because these pros know you'll do just fine as soon as they're done with you.
But because I like you, here 24 tips for losing weight. They are free and can help you keep the line for life.
What did I say ? Tricks, no! This is sublime, heartbreaking advice. You will see, it is so obvious. And it works for lose fat !
As this article is very long (nearly 4000 words), I am delivering it to you in 2 parts.
Here are the first 12 weight loss tips rapidly :
1. Get rid of the mob boss
If you want to get rid of a mafia group, what is your priority?
Start by killing the boss!
And when it comes to getting fat, the mob boss, it's sugar. It is almost impossible to get rid of belly fat when you swallow sugar regularly.
So let's kill it first to lose weight
Let's call a spade a spade.
Sugar is the worst part of the modern diet.
Most people consume far too much.
If you are overweight, chances are you fall into this category of people. And you will never be able to lose weight permanently if you do not tackle this eating behavior.
Why do you think there are so many obese people in the United States?
THE GUILTY IS HERE: Sugar in food and in sodas.
Go take a look at the great documentary film “Fed Up” released in 2014.
It leaves you wondering...
Scientific studies have widely demonstrated that sugar consumption is strongly associated with obesity, diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart problems, etc. Knowing how to get rid of sugar is even more important than knowing how many calories you eat.
If you want to discover How to lose weight, you absolutely must stop consuming sugar in the form of sweets, cakes or sodas.
In all its forms. Just think: SUGAR = POISON. I know it's hard when you've had bad eating habits for years...
But, do you like poison? Would you take it just because it tastes good? No, well me neither. Don't confuse it with fish, which is much better for your health in general 😉
Important recommendation: Pay close attention to so-called low-fat foods.
Most are fortified with sugar to be edible.
2. Consume more fiber to lose weight
To stop being hungry
Fiber-rich foods promote weight loss and curb cravings.
In effect, fibers increase the feeling of satiety and promote digestion. They therefore act as a natural appetite suppressant and help you reduce your calorie intake since your body does not digest them.
Like a sponge, fiber soaks up what's lurking in your digestive tract. They thus help to fight bad cholesterol (LDL).
It is necessary to consume 30 to 50 g per day.
A short list of high fiber foods
- peas (6 g fiber/100 g)
- potatoes (4g fiber/medium sized potato)
- cooked white beans (8 g fiber/100 g)
- lentils (12 g fiber/100 g)
- chestnuts (7 g fiber/100 g)
- whole wheat flour (9 g fiber/100 g)
- rye flour (15g fiber/100g)
- wholemeal bread (8 g of fibre/100 g)
- All bran cereal (27 g fiber/100 g)
- muesli (8 g fiber/100 g)
- hazelnuts (8 g fiber/100 g)
- dates (8 g fiber/100 g)
- powdered chicory (29 g fiber/100 g)
- black pepper (26 g fiber/100 g)
- unsweetened cocoa (20 g fiber/100 g)
- dark chocolate at 70 % (12 g of fibre/100 g)
- unrefined cereals (15 g fiber/100 g)
- coconut (14 g fiber/100 g)
- almonds (12 g fiber/100 g)
- roasted peanuts (11 g fiber/100 g)
- dried figs (18 g fiber/100 g)
These are just a few examples.
You can add to the list Brussels sprouts, spinach, carrots, sweet potato, whole wheat pasta...
Without forgetting the fruits, to consume preferably with skin and seeds. However, beware of pesticides on the skin of certain fruits.
This brings us directly to the next point.
3. Eat more vegetables and fruits
Vegetables and fruits have natural properties that help you lose fat.
They contain fewer calories than most foods, and more fiber. They are also waterlogged and increase the feeling of satiety.
Numerous studies show that people who eat vegetables and fruits tend to losing weight sustainably.
Well, I'm not going to advertise INPES again “Eat at least 5 fruits and vegetables a day”.
I believe that everyone is convinced that it should be eaten. Five doesn't seem like much, especially if you count a cherry as a fruit 😉
4. Use coconut oil in cooking
It is a really healthy oil, useful if you are looking for a good nutritional balance. She is high in fats called medium-chain triglycerides.
Let's leave aside the barbaric words to simply say that the body assimilates them very easily. These fats boost metabolism by 120 calories per day, and reduce appetite, which will help you lose a few pounds.
This oil is therefore an excellent source of energy without making you fat.
For more information on this subject, you can read an article on the site eurekasante.vidal.fr
5. Use smaller plates
Admit that this tip for losing belly fat, you didn't see it coming.
No, it's not a joke. It is even a technique that works very well to eliminate a few superfluous kilos, as strange as it may seem.
Why does it work?
Well, studies show that smaller plates automatically encourage people to eat less.
Well, it's a weird thing, but it seems to work.
I tell myself at the same time that it would be good to leave the dishes in the kitchen while you eat at the bottom of the garden.
That way, you might get tired of going to refill your small plate. In addition, it will make you lose thighs to walk so much 😀
6. Eat slower to reduce love handles
It's a problem I still have to struggle with. And yet… The brain needs some time before telling you that you have enough eat.
It takes on average 20 minutes to realize it. And it has nothing to do with IQ 😉
So if you eat slowly and chew more, you will inevitably consume fewer calories.
Consuming fewer calories is of course essential to lose weight quickly. Read about this the article which talks about the calorie deficit.
Also, your body will produce more hormones related to weight loss.
This is the case of anorectic hormones for example.
7. Drink black coffee
I'm not telling you to drink 3 liters a day. Especially since to lose pounds, you must also sleep better as you will see later.
The recommendations are always around 3 espressos maximum.
Beyond that, you might have Oldelaf's symptoms in his coffee song visible. in the video below:
Good quality coffee is rich in antioxidants. Additionally, caffeine has the ability to boost your metabolism from 3 to 11 %.
At the same time, it increases your ability to burn fat from 10 to 29 %.
But be careful, learn to drink your coffee with little or no sugar. Some choose to add sweeteners. Personally, I don't like it and I'm still not convinced of their harmlessness, but it's up to you.
Also no need to dip 12 cookies in it instead and the like. Please review the secret #1 if necessary.
8. Drink green tea to lose belly fat
Like coffee, green tea has many beneficial properties. One of them is that he promotes weight loss.
Green tea contains some caffeine, but it is also very rich in antioxidants called catechins (from
The important thing is to know that these antioxidants:
- slow down the aging process
- promote the destocking of fats
- fight against bad cholesterol
It also seems that these work in synergy with caffeine to increase fat burning.
It's a start, is not it ?
9. Reduce the consumption of simple carbohydrates
Numerous industrial food and beverages such as ready meals, sodas, cakes contain large quantities simple sugars.
This is also the case of refined cereals (white rice, white flours, unfinished pasta, etc.).
The problem with simple carbohydrates is that they create a spike in sugar or blood sugar in the blood very quickly.
This phenomenon increases the feeling of hunger, and therefore the consumption of food in the hours that follow.
In addition, this influx of sugar forces your body to make fat to store it.
You are in a real vicious circle.
This is why this type of carbohydrates such as glucose, fructose or sucrose are strongly linked to obesity problems. This type of carbohydrate does not exist in a healthy diet.
If you haven't already, take a close look at the movie “Super Size Me”. It is very uplifting!
Well, this is not advertising for McDonald's. But it makes you think.
10. Prioritize complex carbohydrates
This point comes naturally after the previous one.
Some will even tell you that you have to reduce carbohydrates as much as possible.
I don't mind, but as I normally address myself to sportsmen, that seems unrealistic to me.
It's hard to train without fuel.
But you must limit its consumption to avoid insulin peaks and therefore fat storage. Complex carbohydrates have a much lower glycemic index than simple carbohydrates. They can therefore have their place in a balanced meal, and even in a slimming diet.
It's all about balance. That's why I prefer wholemeal pasta and wholemeal bread (which I make myself). I can eat enough on training days without affecting my ideal weight.
If you eat white rice, you have to eat it combine more fiber-rich vegetables like carrots or green vegetables for example.
But, eat the rice as a side dish, not as the base of your meal. In limited quantity.
11. Sleep I Want It
No, I don't have any special powers.
But it is true that getting enough sleep helps weight loss and muscle gain.
This is all the more true since sleep promotes testosterone production.
Do not forget that if we talk about this hormone mainly for men, women also need it. About this you can read this article.
So don't underestimate the importance of sleep.
It's as important as eating healthy or exercising.
Lack of sleep has been associated in various studies with a increased risk of obesity in 55 % of adults.
And unfortunately, being overweight promotes sleep apnea, which does not promote fat loss.
12. Don't diet!
This is my favorite piece of advice, because I hate depriving myself.
I would even rather be a big eater. My father used to say of me: “It's better to see it in a photo than at the table”.
This is to say...
To have a flat stomach, opt for a program that allows you to lose weight while continuing to please yourself. I'm not saying that you shouldn't make an effort, but it is possible to lose weight effectively without suffering and without losing muscle mass.
Eat healthier instead
One of the biggest problems with diets is that they almost never work in the long run. ost of those who follow a slimming program are in failure situation. They always tend to get bigger.
Do you think I'm exaggerating?
A study from the Philadelphia Department of Psychology conducted in September 2013 reveals that diets are the indicators of a programmed magnification.
The certainty that you will grow, does that tempt you? Okay.
Besides, choosing to follow a strict fat-burning diet without exercising is a dangerous choice. doomed to fail.
Rather than following a harsh and overly restrictive low-calorie diet, set yourself the goal of eat healthier to get fit.
Choose an effective and non-binding method
An effective diet involves nourishing your body properly rather than depriving it.
If you're always hungry, you won't last. To lose weight quickly and well without depriving yourself, there are simple solutions based on science such as this method:
The natural effect of this choice will be that you will lose weight naturally while playing sports and without the need for a calorie counter.
