Do these 5 Things Every Day to Lose Weight without Trying

Add these 5 easy tricks into your daily routine to shed pounds fast and keep them off for good!  It’s all about the HABITS…and here are a few that you can painlessly integrate into your already BUSY day to help your pants feel looser around your waistline seemingly EFFORTLESSLY!

1.  Think “CROWD OUT” vs. “CUT OUT”

Instead of a strict diet that tells you all the things NOT to eat, here’s an easier way to think about it: CROWD OUT with the BEST FOOD CHOICES instead of CUT OUT. Essentially, you focus on what to do vs. what not to do by slowly working good habits into your routine. After time, you’re eating and drinking so many healthy things that you don’t have room for the bad stuff. (Wellll maybe there’s still a little room for a treat!)

2. Eat an Apple a Day

It does way more that just keep the doctor away! It can also help you melt pounds off FAST!! Apple are great because they are full of a good fiber called pectin, which slows down the process of digestion and keeps you feeling fuller for longer.

3. PRE-LOAD with Water to Lose Weight

We all know we SHOULD try to drink at least (8) 8-ounce glasses of water per day. But you probably didn’t know how beneficial to weight loss drinking water immediately before a meal can be. This technique, called pre-loading, literally fills up your stomach so you get full faster and don’t eat as much. In one study, participants who drank two cups of water before eating lost five pounds more fat than those who did not.

4.  Feel Full with the help of Flaxseeds

One of the easiest things you can do to speed weight-loss is to add two tablespoons of flaxseed into your daily regimen –they’re easy to mix into your morning oats, blended with a protein shake or sprinkled over soup or salad. Flaxseed is full of fiber so fills you up and keeps you feeling full. It can be found in the health food section of the grocery store or a specialty store.

5.  SCHEDULE IT!

Just as you schedule your workday with clearly defined meeting times, goals and to-do lists, schedule your eating and exercise habits to help hold yourself accountable, and actually make sure they happen in reality! As you move through the day you’ll feel accomplished as you check things off knowing you are staying ON TRACK with your HEALTH + FITNESS GOALS!
