There are many natural and safe ways to speed up the weight loss process; it generally involves making small changes to your eating habits, exercise routine and lifestyle. A combination of these into your lifestyle can help you lose weight naturally and in a safe and healthy manner. Many of these holistic weight loss techniques are simple, less time consuming and easy to incorporate into daily schedule. One can follow these steps anywhere whether they are at home, office or out on the town. With some dedication and practice, even the smallest weight loss tricks or mind hacks can make a big difference. The most important thing to remember when you are using these hacks is commitment and to be persistent.

Hacks for Natural Weight Loss

Here are some few natural weight loss hacks you can easily incorporate today:

1. Drink lots of water

Water is important for optimal hydration of body. Optimal hydration can reduce the risk of fatigue, alter body temperature, and reduce the oxidative stress that occurs during high intensity exercise. Drinking plenty of water is the key to a healthy body and mind because water can increase satiety and boost metabolism in the body. Drinking water half an hour before meals is highly effective. It can give you a feeling of fullness and helps you eat fewer calories. According to a study, almost 70% of both men and women forget to drink the required amount of water due to their busy schedule. Make sure you drink at least three liters of water every day to keep yourself hydrated. Since our body is constantly regulating its temperature through sweat and urine, consumption of water is imperative for maintaining hydration. Water aids in the removal of impurities and fat by-products thereby improving the metabolism and blood circulation. Water consumption also prevents kidney stones and protects you from urinary tract infections.

2. Walk as much as you can

Physical activity contributes greatly towards weight loss. It also reduces the risk of developing health conditions like stroke, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Being active is also beneficial for weight loss and maintenance. Walking around is one of the easiest forms of exercises that is free, low risk and accessible to most people. Our body needs a regular movement to burn those calories that we consume daily. A sedentary lifestyle can contribute greatly to weight gain; it can also increase your risk to severe health conditions. Walking for at least 1.6 km a day burns approximately 100 calories, depending on sex and weight.

3. Avoid Stress

Stress releases the cortisol hormones in the body. This hormone leads to an increase in weight of the body. Therefore, the more you stress, the more you will gain weight. Therefore, if you want to lose weight naturally, then you need to opt for a stress free life and stop worrying.

4. Do Not Watch TV during Meals

Watching TV during meals especially during dinner is quite common these days. While watching TV, we tend to eat more than the required quantities, which ultimately lead to weight gain. When you eat meals without watching TV, you tend to eat less without wasting time. This keeps your food intake in control and ultimately leads to weight loss when combined with other natural weight loss hacks.

5. Sleep Right

Our body undergoes a series of activities on a daily basis. You need to ensure that the body rewinds and gains back the energy for the next day. Sleeping for at least 6-7 hours every day is highly recommended. Lack of sleep can cause serious complications to your body and increase the risk of various health conditions, overweight being is one of them.

6. Choose Smaller Plates

Eating food in small plates ensures that you eat food in healthy and limited proportions. According to a research, eating in smaller plates has resulted in an estimated weight loss of more than ten pounds over the course of one year.

7. Get Rid of Low Priced Combo Food Offers

Offers, especially the combo offers usually provide a low valued and high calorie foods, thus spoiling the overall health of the individual. If you want to lose weight, make sure that you skip those offers with cookies, crackers and similar foods on sale.

8. Keep One Treat Day

Losing weight must be a part of your lifestyle. If you take it for granted, then the results will not be effective later. Go to your favorite eatery place or restaurant and eat your favorite food. Make sure that you do this only for once every week. This will help you to keep yourself and your body goals intact and motivate you more towards your goal of weight loss.

9. Eat Healthy

Eating healthy food must include fruits, vegetables as well as beverages like green tea and milk to find the best results concerning weight loss. You can keep changing your diet menu but make sure that you opt for a healthy option at every meal. This automatically tunes your body to lose weight within a short span of time.

10. Drink Lemon Water

Drinking lemon water can help lose weight within a short duration. Lemon water boosts metabolism and keeps body away from impurities. Lemon water can be a substitute for those who do not like drinking plain water. Lemon contains polyphenols, which are an antioxidant helpful for stimulating the liver in order to burn fat. Drinking lemon water has the following benefits:

  • Reduces bloating
  • Improves digestion
  • Boosts the metabolism
  • Stimulate the liver 
  • Improves the skin complexion
  • Prevents the body from getting an infection

11. Avoid Sugary Drinks

Excessive consumption of sugary drinks can increase weight enormously. Sugary drinks can also cause other possible health problems like diabetes, tooth decay, reduced appetite, nutrient deficient etc. Calories in beverages can add up quickly, one bottle of an aerated drink contains 140 calories and 39 grams of sugar in a single ounce of serving. You can substitute sugary drinks for other drinks like green tea and fruit juice.

Even though there are several ways of losing weight naturally, you need to be careful enough in deciding which diet plan works out well for you. You can include the above tips to lose weight in your daily routine. The best part is that most of these natural weight loss hacks are less expensive, easily available, simple and effective in the long term.

Using smaller plates is hard than it sounds. I always used to feel hungry so, I started eating time to time in a smaller portion. I can see the difference now.
