There are countless ways to lose a lot of weight fast. From Zumba to yoga to ditching unhealthy food, we are surrounded by a variety of options. However, not all of them will work for you. Some of them will seem boring and unsatisfying to you. Others will make you doubt if they are working at all. Soon, you begin to feel discouraged and you’re back to eating cupcakes at midnight once again.
To lose weight quickly and effectively, the key is to make small lifestyle changes. Instead of taking the all-or-nothing approach, try integrating these healthy switch-ups in your daily routine:
1. Eat out less often.
If you like eating out at restaurants, it’s time to cut back. As much as possible, try to eat at home so you have more control about your food choices. Not only will you save money, you will lose up to 20 pounds in a month as well. Aim to eat just once a week and when you do eat out, order a healthy dish.
2. Stop buying snacks at the grocery store.
Refrain from indulging yourself with unhealthy food by not purchasing snacks at the grocery store. Each time you crave, you have to walk or drive to the store to get a snack. It sounds inconvenient but the inconvenience will make you ignore your cravings.
3. Do not skip breakfast.
Many people skip breakfast thinking it will help in losing weight. They are wrong. Not eating breakfast actually makes you hungrier throughout the day. So, you eat more and gain instead of lose pounds. Begin your day with a 300-calorie meal composed of healthy choices. As you develop this habit, you can lose up to 65 pounds a year.
4. Make happy hour your healthy hour.
Typically, happy hour means going out for a drink or dinner with officemates. But if you want to lose weight fast, you have to change things up. Instead of having a night out, why not use happy hour to exercise. Do yoga, go for a run or whatever form of exercise you enjoy.
5. Add veggies to your daily diet.
Add vegetables to food that you enjoy. Instead of topping your pizza with pepperoni, opt for vegetables like arugula or spinach and colorful sweet peppers. You will feel full quickly without consuming a lot of calories.
6. Avoid ordering supersized food.
If you are going out for fast food, avoid ordering large-sized value meals. Satisfy your cravings by ordering just one item from the menu like a small order of French fries or a box of chicken nuggets. Downsizing your intake of fast food can shave off up to 16 pounds in seven weeks.
7. Walk your dog.
Walking your dog does not only make him happy, it is also good for your physical and emotional health. Studies show that bonding with your dog helps release stress. It can also make you lose more than 50 pounds in a year. Walk your dog every day for at least 10 minutes even if it is just around the block.
