2) Drink more water: Undeniably, water is the source of life and it is even more important to drink water when you are trying to lose weight. The reason is because water increases your metabolism and is essential for optimal liver function. With a healthy and performing liver, toxins can be removed from your bloodstream efficiently! The processing of fats is also dependent on our liver. In addition, water fills your stomach and prevents overeating. Thus, do remember to drink at least 2 litres of water everyday to stay hydrated and lose calories fast.
3) Take note of your calories intake: Intuitively, to lose weight, your calories intake must not exceed the amount of calories you burn daily. Depending on your gender, age, activity level, height and weight, the amount of calories you take in should be different. One of the best ways to keep track of the amount of calories you consume is to keep a food journal. Do not belittle this method as this only takes a few minutes each day, but can help you to restrict the amount of food you eat.
4) Be fair when weighing yourself: Some people weigh themselves too often and at different times of the day, leading to fluctuating readings which leads them to despair and loss of direction. It will be best to weigh yourself in the morning, after a visit to the bathroom, and when you are naked or wearing your night clothes. Do this for seven days and record your measurements each day. Then, total the numbers and divide it by seven to get the average weight. Take this to be your actual weight and set up a weight loss plan based on this weight.
5) Have enough rest: This sounds easy, but many people are not adhering to the idea of getting enough sleep. However, research has proved that sleep deprived people tend to put more food into their mouths. This is because our body produce more ghrelin, a hormone that stimulates appetite, when our brains are tired. Also, in sleep deprived people, the parts of the brains associated with rewards and pleasure lights up when than eat, even more so than those who have enough rest. Thus, do have a good night's sleep starting from today. Raymond Smith http://www.amazines.com/
