Lose Weight in 6 Simple Steps Without Dieting

*Collaborative post.

Almost everyone who tries to lose weight has gone through the disappointment of losing weight through dieting. The experience of sticking to a single diet is one that is boring, monotonous, and even unsuitable. Instead of helping you lose weight, it instead discourages you from attaining your ideal weight.

But does that mean that you can lose weight without having to change your diet? As a matter of fact, yes. You do not need to give up your favorite foods and treats. Instead, you can lose weight by making slight changes to the other areas of your life.

To keep it simple, implementing just one or two lifestyle changes is enough to get your body to lose weight. Therefore, you can successfully lose weight without having to try any weight-loss diet. The tips below can help you achieve your weight goals without having to alter anything in your diet.

Use a Probiotic Supplement

Using a probiotic supplement to lose weight does not guarantee immediate effects. However, it can aid in the loss of weight and belly fat. How so? These fat burner supplements use friendly bacteria to support the proper absorption of nutrients and keep your bowel function and inflammation levels healthy. As a result, your body remains healthy and supports weight loss.

According to various studies on the effect of probiotics on women, the number of women losing weight with its help is 50 percent more than that of those using a placebo pill.

Stop Avoiding Fiber Meals

If you want to lose weight, you should embrace foods rich in fiber count instead of avoiding them. Such meals make you feel full for longer. Thus, you do not need to keep eating fatty foods to sustain your hearty appetite.

While this strategy is highly effective, it is not suitable for people suffering from eating disorders.

Start Exercising

Exercising is universally known to help you lose weight. Although there is no need for dieting, you need to provide your body with a balanced diet to support the exercises you do. It is only through healthy eating and physical exercise that you can lose weight and improve your health.

You should exercise regularly and repeatedly if you want to burn off the excess calories in the body. The best workouts should be a combination of resistance and cardio training. The two workouts engage your cardiovascular system, reduce fat storage, and improve your muscle size and power.

Concentrate While Eating

Concentrating on your meal while eating is a sure way of helping you eat less but still get to enjoy your meals. Research findings from the British Journal of Nutrition indicate that distracted eating makes you unaware that your body is full. As a result, you keep eating more food than necessary.

When you focus on the food you are eating, you are more likely to eat less food than you normally would. Therefore, it is best to avoid distractions while eating. You should avoid eating while working or while watching television.

Get More Sleep

Getting enough sleep is highly essential for both your physical and mental state. Depravation of enough sleep causes your body and mind to be in very poor conditions. As a result, your body stimulates ghrelin production that helps you grow back your appetites and reduce hormone leptin levels that make you feel lazy.

Lack of sleep can also deal a huge blow to your willpower and motivation to exercise. It can increase your stress levels and with it the levels of cortisol, an appetite stimulant. You may, therefore, find yourself consuming more food than your body necessarily needs.

By getting enough sleep, you can burn about 300 calories less than those who are sleep deprived.

Always Take Breakfast

It is normal to avoid one meal in a day to reduce the number of calories you may eat. However, it would be best if you always consumed a filling breakfast as it can help you curb your hunger and prevent you from overeating throughout the day.

According to research conducted on Tel Aviv University volunteers, those who ate a heavy breakfast and a light lunch and evening meal all lost a certain amount of weight.

It can be attributed to efficient metabolism in the morning. Moreover, breakfast prevents your body from getting into a state of starvation.

Changing your diet is not an effective strategy for losing weight. Rather than taking on a tedious diet plan, you should change your lifestyle to lose weight fast. You should put more work into exercising, stick to a balanced diet, and get enough rest. Moreover, avoid exerting your mental state too much to avoid getting stressed.

5 Extraordinary Ways to Unwind After Work

*Collaborative post.

5 Extraordinary Ways to Unwind After Work picture

Whatever you do and wherever you work, perpetually feeling busy, stressed out, or just plain bored can affect your wellbeing. If you’ve got a lot of responsibilities, like looking after your family or working in a high-pressure job (or both), it’s easy to lose track and never have a moment to yourself.

Breaking the Cycle

When you’re feeling run down and uninspired, it’s time to implement some extraordinary tactics to break the cycle and beat the mid-week slump. Constantly working late into the night or working on weekends can become draining and negatively affect your health and your relationships, so taking some time out to reconnect with yourself and those around you is incredibly important.

1. Get Out There with Extreme Activities

From go-karting to ax throwing, “extreme” activities can take you out of your comfort zone and give you experiences to remember. Get your friends or work colleagues involved, and do something wild together –– you might just find your new hobby!

Investing in opportunities to go and do new things will create greater happiness and fonder memories than spending money on throwaway purchases. You’ll cherish the memory of doing something fun and exciting, and you’ll be able to relive the experience again and again.

2. Indulge Yourself with Pampering and Relaxation 

Get some well-earned “me time” by scheduling some serious self-care. Switch off your phone, close down your computer and put aside your worries –– this is your time. While jumping in the bathtub or diving in the shower can act as a great circuit breaker, why not do something that’ll benefit you in a much deeper way?

Getting a tantric massage can be a mind-blowing experience that’ll reinvigorate your senses and help you connect with yourself –– and someone else. Massages have numerous physical and mental benefits, from relaxing your muscles and improving your skin to increasing your confidence and enhancing positive body image.

3. Reorganise and Reclaim Your Space

Although it might not seem that extraordinary, you’d be surprised at the amazing psychological benefits of whipping your home into shape. Putting time aside to declutter and clean can be incredibly therapeutic, helping you to feel organised and in control of your environment.

Reclaiming your space and clearing out your wardrobe can earn you some extra cash if you sell your unwanted garments online with apps like Depop or eBay. The additional funds might be the difference between taking on that extra shift of taking some more time out to spend with your friends and family. Alternatively, you can give something back to your community by donating your old clothes to charity –– another great and fulfilling practice. 

4. Break the Habit and Ditch the Screens

It’s amazing how much time we spend in front of screens. Sinking into the sofa and watching a new series can be a great de-stressor. But, if you’ve been working on your phone, laptop, or any other bright rectangle all day, your eyes will tire, you’ll start to feel worn out and your brain won’t want to switch off.

Ditch the screens, and do something different. Rebel against our modern obsession with technology, and find something else that brings you joy. Cooking a new recipe to nourish your body will have a profound effect on your physical and mental wellbeing while listening to music, reading a good book, or meditating will put you in a different state of mind

5. Try Out Some New Exercise

We get it: it’s cold outside, it’s raining, you don’t quite feel like it — there’s always going to be a reason why you don’t want to exercise. If you’re not a runner or you hate the idea of swimming at your local pool, your options can seem limited, so why not try something new?

There are plenty of online classes available that offer varied and exciting new ways to get your heart pumping. Trying out yoga or pilates classes can rejuvenate your body and inspire you to get moving without getting wet and muddy throughout winter. With so much choice, you’re bound to find the right videos and classes for your level of fitness.

 

Conclusion: Break the Mould

Whether you’re chasing a promotion or seeking inner peace, you need to find different ways to relax, unwind, and do something other than work. Your body and mind will thank you, and you’ll be able to move forward effectively to achieve your goals. From exercising and decluttering to pampering and meditating, set some time aside to do some extraordinary activities that’ll renew your vitality and give you back your lust for life.
