Globally, obesity has tripled between 1975 and 2017, with about 1.9 billion overweight adults. Of these, more than 650 million adults were obese. Staying healthy today takes a lot of commitment and time, which, unfortunately, is something that most of us don’t have much of.
We bring 10 ways to optimize the weight loss regimen you follow so you can stay healthy and happy!
How To Speed Up Weight Loss
1. Eat Before Eating
A recent study found that eating a bowl of soup before a meal can help control appetite. One likely explanation would be that while you wait for the soup to cool, you should eat it slowly, giving your brain, hormones, and stomach enough time to coordinate a “fullness” message.
2. Spice Up Your Food
Do you love spicy food? If so, then we have good news. Eating spicy foods can temporarily boost your metabolism by up to 8%, increasing your body’s calorie-burning rate. Also, it has been observed that eating spicy foods encourages people to eat slowly, which is good for their metabolism.
3. Eat Healthy Snacks
Eat more, but not at mealtimes. Yes, you read it correctly. In your weight loss process, you have probably increased the time between meals. While this may seem logical, waiting until you are very hungry will likely make you eat more before you are satisfied. Also, you’re likely to eat fast, which is definitely not recommended.
Keep healthy snacks like sunflower seeds, almonds, apple slices, whole grain crackers, and low-fat cheese on hand and eat them every few hours.
4. Sleep More
Getting proper rest is very important for your body to function well. One study found that people who followed a diet consumed 6% fewer calories when they got enough sleep.
5. Drink A Lot Of Tea
8 glasses of water a day is a fad. You should still drink water, but only drink when you are thirsty. For other occasions, tea is the best option. Tea (particularly green tea) contains many antioxidants and can help you lose weight. As an added benefit, green tea also helps protect against cancer.
6. Embrace The Color Blue
Research has shown that people tend to eat less when eating on dishes with a higher color contrast between the plate and the food. The researchers found that people eat 33% less in a blue room.
7. Stop Multitasking
When you multitask, your mind is not focused on one topic and moves between multiple topics, including the thought of food and eating. This can make you forget you’re on a diet and subconsciously dig deep into your snack drawer.
Laughter gives the body a little aerobic workout. It makes the heart beat faster, which increases blood circulation in the body. Intense laughter for about an hour burns almost as many calories as lifting weights for 30 minutes.
9. Sleep In The Cold
While we sleep in the cold, the body burns stored fats in the belly to keep the body warm. A study published in the journal Diabetes showed that people who slept in rooms with temperatures of around 66 ° burned 7% more calories than those who slept in warmer rooms.
10. Turn Off The Lights
It may seem strange, but it is true. Researchers from Ohio State University discovered that staying in dark places can make the body lighter.
