These hacks are easy to incorporate into your daily life. The best thing is that these are natural and very easy to incorporate in your daily living. So let’s start with the hacks.
- WATER. Water is an essential component of our body and plays a vital role in maintaining nearly all major organ systems of the body. The human body contains 2/3 water by weight. Blood, muscles, brain matter, and bones are also composed of 83%, 75%, 74%, and 22% of water, respectively. We cannot survive without water even for a day.
Benefits of drinking water can never be undermined. The maintenance of energy levels, Regulation of body temperature, the working of metabolism, and breathing are some of the benefits of drinking water. It also helps in the prevention of constipation, heartburn, migraines, gastritis, ulcers, kidney stones, cardiovascular disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, backaches, and osteoporosis. Pregnant women and nursing mothers also require a lot of water. Water plays a great part in the glowing of the skin.
- BREAKFAST within 30 minutes of waking up. You must be wondering why? I will answer that question. You see, when you go to sleep, your body goes into hibernation. The metabolism rate slows down. Your body rests and conserves energy. When you wake up, if you do not energize your body, it will continue to remain in the conserving stage. Your body goes into survival mode. It is not sure when it will be fed again, so it stores fat. When you eat within thirty minutes, you jump start your body and your metabolism thus giving your body a reason to burn fat. You also power your mind and body for the day to carry out their functions.
It is a myth that skipping breakfast will lead to weight loss. It is more probable that skipping breakfast, or delaying eating until two to three hours after you are awake, will lead to weight gain. People who deliberately prolong the eating hours are more prone to gain weight as compared to those who eat their food timely. For weight loss, and for a healthier you, make sure to eat breakfast within 30 minutes of waking up.
- MOVE that body of yours. Being a couch potato has never done anyone good except weight gain. Stop thinking about joining the gym for weight loss. There are so many activities you can do at your own pace. You can either go for shopping at a near store by walking rather than driving or you can play with your kids in the backyard by running or jumping on a trampoline or skipping. My list of activities would never end. All that is required from you is to think on these lines to lose weight and develop good ties with your family.
- CONSUME IN SMALL QUANTITIES. This is a very useful hack. Eating a healthy diet that includes lots of fruit, vegetables, whole grains and a moderate amount of unsaturated fats, meat and dairy can help you maintain a steady weight. Having a good variety of these foods every day leaves less room for foods that are high in fat and sugar – a leading cause of weight gain. Plus eating a small amount at one time trains the mind to eat only, what is required. The more organic it is the lesser are the chances of weight gain. And it is not a rule of thumb to eat one time. You can consume it 2 to 3 times depending on your body requirement as well as if suffering from a serious disease. Don’t kill yourself by starving.
