How can I lose weight?
The most important part is to cut back on sugars and starches (carbs).When you do that, your hunger levels go down and you end up eating much fewer calories. Now instead of burning carbs for energy, your body starts feeding off of stored fat.
Each one of your meals should include a protein source, a fat source and low-carb vegetables.
Eat 2–3 meals per day. If you find yourself hungry in the afternoon, add a 4th meal.
Don’t be afraid of eating fat, as trying to do both low-carb AND low-fat at the same time is a recipe for failure. It will make you feel miserable and abandon the plan.
It is NOT necessary to count calories as long as you keep the carbs very low and stick to protein, fat and low-carb vegetables.
Get plenty of sleep. Lack of sleep leads to cravings and late night snacking.
Hello dear friend, I was overweight once and now I am just normal. I don’t have an active life as I’m on the computer most of the time. First, analyze your diet and see what goes wrong. For me, it was excess of carbs as I was eating everything with bread. Bread with scrambled eggs, bread with sausage, bread with salad, etc. I am a person who doesn’t eat seafood at ALL even if I would love to. I don’t like the taste but if you do, go for it. I don’t follow a diet and all I do is simply eating carbs once a week on Sunday. Check what you eat. Now I have a diet and eat chicken meat once a day, but every day. Then I l make exercise three times a week in a gym each workout lasted 30 minutes. In order to time the workout, I use a simple timer, set a 30 minute timer and wait for the end.
You can lose weight by following appropriate diet and exercise. Eat a well-balanced diet containing all the nutrients. Do not consume junk and processed food. Junk food contains high percentage of salt, sugar and fats.
- Take a gluten-free diet.
It’s a good way if you want to lose weight quickly before bikini season. There are opinions that it’s possible to lose 5 kg within two weeks due to a gluten-free diet. Why can it help you? Many people are allergic to gluten (some people say gluten is not guilty but a group of sugars called FODMAP). Food allergies and intolerance mean that you have a problem with digesting and immune system and it leads to further problems with your health. However, you should remember that you may suffer from yo-yo effect if you return to old diet habits.
2. Are you still on a diet and no effects?
Consider visiting a doctor or getting some blood tests, especially toward thyroid diseases. Thyroid is responsible for metabolism. If your metabolism is slow, it is possible that you have hypothyroidism. You may try natural treatments to raise level of thyroid hormones (ft3 and ft4).
3. Try some supplements (after a consultation with a doctor/dietician).
For example chromium is recommended for persons who want to lose some weight. Chromium helps to keep right metabolism, because it activate some enzymes. Chromium also regulates blood glucose level and makes you lose sugar craving.
Also algaes such as spirulina and chlorella may increase your metabolism.
