Do you dream of pain-free weight loss? For many people the very idea of trying to lose weight has become synonymous with depriving themselves of what they enjoy most in life and suffering through the entire process. It’s difficult to stay upbeat and enjoy getting fit if all you can think about is how much you are going to miss your favorite foods and how intensely you’ll have to exercise to begin seeing even a slight difference in your figure.
Think about it. Wouldn’t it be fun to lose weight without trying too hard? All you need to do is to make a few slight changes here and there in the way you do things to lose weight naturally and gradually. The tips you’ll discover here don’t require you to deny yourself or engage in grueling workouts. Instead you’ll learn how to get to where you want to go in the quickest and most pain-free manner. So are you ready to get started? Here are the best tips that I’ve discovered and applied that will truly help you to get the body of your dreams fast!
Lighten Your Favorite Foods
Most people are destined to fail at restrictive diets even before they begin. Do you know why? It’s because they believe they need to cut down on all their favorite foods when they are on a diet and they use their will power to do that. However will power will only take you so far. At the end your imagination will always triumph over any will power you might have.
While losing weight might be your major focus, you need to have a life outside of it. This helps you to not only stay mentally and emotionally balanced and fresh but also gets rid of unhealthy habits in an indirect way. If you are spending less time in front of the TV you’ll also be snacking less. You’ll not only feel great about doing something productive and new, but you’ll also be cutting down on your junk food consumption by default. Now, isn’t that exciting?
Replace the word exercise with something fun
The only way to avoid this issue is to never think of exercise as working out while finding fun and innovative ways to incorporate more movement into your daily life. If you dislike walking, how about combing the beach for treasure with a metal detector? Perhaps throwing frisbees, playing volleyball or going for nature walks is more your cup of tea?
Eat more Soup
One of the best tips I have to share with you is to eat a bowl of soup every day. Eating a nutritious bowl of low-salt soup daily is not only nourishing but it’ll help you lose more weight steadily. Try to avoid canned soups that are chock full of chemicals and salt and make your own instead. You can easily whip up a large batch of delicious soup at one go and deep-freeze portions to eat during the week. When eating out choose clear soups as opposed to the more creamy ones; the latter normally have more fat and calories.
Which one sounds easier to you – moving a mountain in a day or shifting pebbles over a period of months? This way you won’t get depressed about or be sighing over your waistline if you’ve only lost 2 inches over 4 months because you haven’t lost 8 inches yet. Instead you’ll be quite justly celebrating your success!
Set mini-goals on a weekly basis too. Decide on the lifestyle changes you want to incorporate and choose to incorporate just one change every week. You won’t be biting off more than you can chew and you will find it easy to make long lasting, permanent and healthier changes that help you to lose weight quickly over time. Remember that you are in this for the long haul and setting realistic mini-goals will help you to create healthy new habits that stick.
