“A healthy outside starts from the inside.”
Nowadays, many people have started to go on diet and any other ways to lose weight. For many different reasons – from wanting to stay healthy and fit until to have a body like a supermodel – losing weight has started to become a lifestyle. Based on my experience, here are the 5 easy ways to lose weight.
It’s crucial to pay attention to what kind of breakfasts are we having every morning. The reason is that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Don’t ever skip breakfast – not only because it’s not good for your health, but also because skipping breakfast will make you starve very quickly – this will cause you eat often and more. We also have to pay attention to what we eat for breakfast every day. Having a healthy breakfast will boost your immune system. It will also make your body consume fruits and veggies earlier in the day. Thus, this will prevent your body rejection with fruits and vegetables (especially for people that don’t like to eat healthy food). I personally like to have granola with berries and almond drink every morning.
Avoid sugar and alcohol
It’s compulsory to avoid sugar if you want to lose weight – because surprisingly sugar contains lots of calories. Some people argued that sugar is necessary for every day consuming – but it’s actually not. Sugar has no essential nutrients that our body needs. Thus, there is no main function to consume sugar – rather than for adding a sweet taste to your food. In addition, – surprisingly (again), alcohol also contain lots of calories. According to the National Health Service (NHS) UK – drinking a standard glass (175 ml) of 12% wine, contains 126 kcal, which means the same amount of calories with 1 Cadbury Chocolate Mini Roll (2016). This shows that even you are on diet, but still not avoiding alcohol – it won’t be useful because the calories inside alcohol are not less than the others.
Based on my personal experience, this is the best and fastest way to reduce weight. For 1 – 2 months, I drink green tea 2 times in a day. It helps my body to stay fit and reduce 3 kg (from 48 kg to 45 kg). It works very well for me. However, for some people – consuming too much green tea is not good for their health. Thus, it depends on our bodies – whether we have a specific health condition that is not friendly with green tea or not. If your health condition is okay with it – drinking green tea 1-2 times a day will help to reduce your weight and keep your body fit.
Exercise and gym
This might sounds something like you have heard lots of times – but doing exercise is necessary for weight loss. Normally, people go to the gym for 3 – 4 times a week. However, if you are too busy with your activity and don’t have much time, you could exercise once or twice a week – one until two hours each – is enough. Making exercise as your routine will help to make your body stay fit. In addition, doing a routine exercise would help to maintain your health and could prevent lots of illness, such as cholesterol, heart attack, and cancer.
Having a good sleeping pattern
Last but not least, having enough sleep every day is necessary. The reason is that if people don’t get enough sleep, they won’t have enough energy to be able to do their activity to the fullest. Yes, there is a coffee or any others caffeine that helps people to stay awake – but it only could help for a short period of time. If people don’t get enough sleep, the majority of the time they will feel tired – this including tired while doing exercise. In addition, people tend to eat more when they don’t get enough sleep. Therefore, having enough sleep is crucial. However, having too much sleep every day is not good either. Your sleeping pattern has to be between 7 – 9 hours each night.
