3 Easy Ways To Lose Weight Without Having To Go To Gym

Even you can lose un-wanted fat and get rid of excess weight.

Weight loss is one of South Africa’s biggest un-spoken problems. According to the latest research, over 75% percent of women are obese.

Obesity comes with problems. The smallest one being simply uncomfortable in one’s body.

The extreme being heart problems and aggravated organ failure.

If it was easy to lose weight, everyone would do it. Unfortunately, to lose weight takes. a whole more than a lazy attitude and devil-mat-care attitude. 

One has to be emotionally and mentally invested in losing weight to be able to lose upwards of 2kg per week consistently.

If you cannot answer the question of whether you are willing to let food ruin your health, then dieting will probably not work for you.

We reached out to Thuso, a 35 year old ux designer / fitness guru based in Durban on what he used to lose 12 kg per month when he was dieting.

 

This is what he had to say:

“The most effective dieting tool in the world is your mind.”

Train your mind to love the rumbling of your stomach and to hate the fullness of over-eating. Imagine that you are already losing weight.

Once you have your mind right, then you can follow the steps below:

 


 

 


1. WATER

Drinking water not only helps your body to self-cleanse and get rid of harmful toxins better, but it also helps to make you feel like you are full for longer.

It is difficult to stuff your face with food when your stomach is filled with water. For people who are having a hard time staying away from the fridge, I recommend drinking up to 3 liters of water everyday.

In order to lose weight successfully while using this strategy, make sure that you drink 300ml of water EVERY hour.

Benefits:

+ You feel fuller.

+ You focus on water, not food.

+ You help cleanse your body.

+ This is the single fastest way to lose 1 – 2 kg every week.


2. EAT USING A CLOCK

Do not eat at ANY time that you want. Set a target everyday on which times you want to eat and reward yourself.

The biggest reason why most diets fail is that people dieting will choose to eat healthy, low weight impact foods BUT then find themselves eating that food 20 times a day and end up gaining more weight than they had before they started dieting.

Set your target to 3 meals maximum per day. Remove all snacks. Just remove them. Snack on water, tea or coffee.

Then ensure that you eat high protein and with small carb or NO portions. If you are really determined, have you first meal at 12:00pm and your last meal at 6:00pm. So you eat breakfast at  12:00pm, lunch at 3pm and dinner at 6pm.

Benefits:

+ Cutting heavy snacks has the same effect as  running every hour.

+ You will force your body to use stored body fat for energy.

+ You will lose weight faster.


3. SAY “NO” TO SWEET FOOD

Carbohydrates are notorious for one thing, they are the body’s primary source of energy.

However, they also store very easily in the body whenevr in abundance. Fats has the effect of regulating body function and I typically advise dieters to never skip on fats. Proteins are your friends. They make you feel fuller for longer.

They are slow digesting, so they will longer in the digestive tract, making you crave less food that you would normally eat.

They require a lot of energy for your body to digest them, so they will use up even more energy to be broken down than other foods.

Remove these foods from your diet: Bread, mealie meal, bananas, apples, rolls, fried chips, chocolates, cakes.

Love these foods: Eggs, chicken, red meat, vegetables, sweet potatoes, lettuce, cucumber, peanuts, peanut butter.

Benefits:

+ Your body will start to use fats and proteins as energy sources.

+ You will be fuller for longer.

+ You will lose weight.
