Three Simple Ways to Make Weight Loss Easy
Losing weight is not a complicated process. It will take time to shed unwanted pounds; however, there are some very simple things you can do to start the weight loss process.
Get Enough Sleep
Going to bed at a reasonable time at night helps you avoid the urge to grab a late night snack. At the same time, getting enough sleep at night keeps your metabolism working properly and reduces the stress that often leads to unhealthy snacking during the day.
One reason people eat more than they should is that they use large plates for all their meals. The average dinner plate size ranges from 11 to 12 inches and some restaurants use plates as large as 13 inches. However, a study has recently shown that those who switch their 12 inch plates for 10 inch ones eat 22% less food than those who stick with their big plates.
This same point also applies to large bowls and lunch containers. Using smaller dishes makes it easy to get used to eating less food than you did before, which in turn leads to weight loss.
Eat Six Small Meals Instead of Three Large Ones
Eating small meals throughout the day keeps both your insulin and glucose levels on an even keel. It also helps your body to use the food for energy instead of storing it as fat. Furthermore, eating healthy meals throughout your day enables you to avoid the urge to grab an unhealthy mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack.
There is no single "magic" trick for losing weight. However, the tactics above are tried and proven ways to help you avoid eating the wrong foods and eating more food than you should. If you are serious about getting rid of unwanted fat, implement these tips along with starting a healthy eating plan to see positive results.
