5 Ways to Lose Weight Without Really Trying

Loading...

A lot of the time there’s a change in our lives we know we need to make but either there’s not enough time or we lack the motivation. And sometimes we go after the change so hard that it leaves us worn out and discouraged, making us stop the change all together.

But thankfully there are a few hacks we can apply to our lives to get the change started and see results. And when it comes to weight, any small change can help encourage us.

SKIP LUNCH

Sounds a bit unhealthy, but there’s history behind it. Lunch is actually a fairly modern thing; it wasn’t until the last couple centuries that lunch started to take form and become a part of our normal lifestyle.

So for instance, back in the medieval times, people only had two meals of the day. They would have a breakfast around ten in the morning and then dinner would be around five. They made sure their first meal wasn’t too early and their last meal wasn’t too late.

You want to make sure you’re eating dinner early enough so you’re not starved and over eat and so you can have more time to burn the calories before heading off for bed.

Soon your body will become used to your new eating schedule and you’ll be seeing good results by the end of the month.

SUB ONE THING OUT

We all get told to cut the fast food and start cooking at home. Or we all get told to eat fruits and vegetables and our waistline will decrease.

These things are true, but they’re not so fun to do at first. So why not just sub out one thing?

Sub out that one thing you eat every day for something more healthy. It’s not a huge commitment like a full blown diet that makes you cut everything out and makes you miserable and more likely to quit.

This can also be applied to simple actions. Sub out getting front row parking at the store and park further back. Or just sub out taking the elevator for the stairs.

Just a simple change that’ll show results, help you start new habits and encourage better decisions down the road.

SLEEP AND WATER

I’ll keep this short and simple since I talked about this in more depth in my post on the habits of fit people. But basically, if you get no more than 8-9 hours of sleep at night, your body is able to burn more calories from functions done when sleeping and help you lose weight. It’s been said that those who get a good night sleep weigh less than those who get less, so make sure to work your schedule around getting enough sleep.

For water, if you drink a lot in a day (8 cups for women, 12 cups for men), this will also help you burn calories and lose weight over time.

Turns out, those who eat low calorie meals along with a couple glasses of water, end up losing more weight than those who just eat low calorie meals.

CUT OUT THE STRESS

Apparently those who eat high calorie meals and consume unhealthy snacks as well throughout the week or month end up gaining less than those who have the same diet but have more stress.

So even if you can’t cut out everything, look for small ways at first to cut out stress from certain parts of your life. So avoid being around that rude coworker or take down your work hours if you have more than enough. Take a quick walk around the block in the evening, even small amounts of exercise help cut stress. Find any way you can to avoid stress and help your mental and physical health.

Give yourself the chance to try these hacks and start seeing the results. Any sign of success and change can help motivate us to work around our hectic lives or give us motivation.
