To be honest, we have so many people out there who are very uncomfortable with their weight.
If they sat down and opened up about the things they have tried in the name of losing weight, you’d be left speechless.
This industry is filled with crazy myths about weight loss.
The good thing is that in recent years, science has come up with so many ways and strategies that have been proven to work effectively.
The following is an outline of the 12 most creative weight-loss tips ever that (really work!).
1. Drink clean water preferably before meals
Drinking water improves metabolism with rates of up to 30% within a very short period of about 1.5 hours.
This, of course, bring along burning off lots of calories that contribute to weight loss.
According to a study that was done a few years ago, drinking clean water before meals (about half a liter) helped to control the number of consumed calories which led to a weight loss of up to 44%.
2. Take eggs especially for breakfast
A study done by a recognized American university states that replacing the common grain-based cereals or rather, foods for breakfast helps you take a reduced amount of calories in the next 36 hours.
This as well helps you to lose a lot of weight and more body fat.
If eggs aren’t your thing, any other food with quality protein can do the trick in equal measures.
3. Drink black coffee.
Most people don’t realize the health benefits that come with coffee.
It contains large amounts of antioxidants that have very crucial health benefits.
Black coffee increases rates of metabolism by about 10%.
This increases the burning of fats by around 10-29%.
However, this works best when it’s taken with very little or no sugar.
It’s also recommended that you don’t add any other high-calorie substances.
High levels of sugars and calories will instead negate the benefits the coffee will have brought, and of course weight loss will be a past tense to you.
4. Drinking green tea works!
Green tea is one of the most underrated solutions to the puzzle of weight-loss.
Just like black coffee, green tea can also help you lose a great deal of weight.
It contains minimal levels of caffeine but on the other side, it contains very powerful antioxidants known as catechins.
These two, (caffeine and catechins), work hand in hand to enhance and fasten the fat burning process.
Researchers have proven that it can either be taken as a beverage or an extract supplement of green tea and the end results is something you’ll really love.
5. Practice intermittent fasting.
It’s really obvious that if you don’t eat, the chances of losing weight will increase.
However, intermittent fasting doesn’t really mean you quit eating.
It simply means rotating between short periods of meals and fasting.
This restricts a lot of calorie intake which in turn leads to continuous weight loss.
Muscle mass loss is associated with diets with low-calorie content.
This means by fasting, this is controlled and you will lose a considerable amount of fats.
However, this tip isn’t an easy one to apply. You have to be really committed.
6. Cut down your added sugar intake.
Sugar is really sweet, to be honest.
But what most people don’t know is that it’s actually one of the most detrimental ingredients in the modern day diet.
It’s a fact that people consume a lot of this nowadays.
Based on science, high levels of sugar intake are directly linked to obesity.
Moving away from weight issues, it also brings along diabetes and increased risks of heart diseases.
It is therefore really simple.
If you want to lose some weight, be careful about the added sugar content of what you take.
7. Eat using smaller plates
This is a more psychological tip and it actually works for very many people.
By using smaller plates, you get to reduce the amounts of food you take which means you get to consume fewer calories.
Generally, this has been known to work for overweight and obese people so if you’re really willing to lose weight, it will really count.
8. Take less refined carbohydrates
A few examples of these refined carbohydrates are grains and sugar, whose fibrous as well as nutritious components have been stripped off.
A good typical example of these is white bread.
Refined carbohydrates increase levels of blood sugar which of course brings about the thought of hunger.
This is the reason why these refined carbs have a direct relationship with obesity.
Avoid refined carbs, lose more weight!
9. Spicy foods help in weight loss.
Spices such as chili peppers have this substance called capsaicin.
This compound has been known as a metabolism booster and is very good at cutting down appetite.
This has actually helped a lot of people in weight-loss.
10. Do some aerobic exercise
Cardio helps in burning calories as well as improving your state of physical as well as mental health.
This is actually the best tip to follow especially if you look forward to cutting some belly fat.
I highly recommend this tip for we all know belly fat can actually lead to serious metabolic diseases.
11. Take more fibers
Viscous fibers have been known to increase satiety.
This will be of great help to you as it will make it easy for you to control your own weight over a long period of time.
Fiber is highly recommended for overweight people.
12. Chew your food slowly.
Psychology shows that when you chew slowly, it helps you eat a few calories which increase the release of hormones that contribute to weight loss.
Chewing thoroughly can also help.
Science and research show that calorie intake in a meal is reduced when one chews slowly.
The list would be endless if I was to continue.
There are hundreds of ways that can help you lose some weight.
Going through the above “12 most creative weight-loss tips ever” will have given you a head start.
