These 5 Steps Reveal The Things You Absolutely Must Avoid If You are OVER 40 And Want To Look 10 Years Younger, Achieve Your Ideal Body and Reclaim Your Health… See the steps here…
Wouldn’t it be great if there were things you could do to lose weight that didn’t involve starving yourself, or meticulously counting the calories in every bite of food that came near your lips?
Well, there are. In fact, there are several things you can do to lose weight that require little to no effort. And here are just three of them.
Suck In Your Stomach
Sucking in your stomach on a regular basis can help you burn calories. It will also tone up your stomach muscles, and trim a few inches off of your waistline.
The best part is that you can do this easy exercise anywhere. You can do it while you’re working at your desk, walking around your house, or standing in line at the grocery store.
Basically, you just suck in your stomach whenever it occurs to you to do so. After a while, you won’t have to think about it. You’ll find yourself sucking in your stomach almost instinctively.
Remembering to do this exercise can be hard at first, so try using some reminders. For example, putting a sticky note on your computer monitor that simply says “stomach” can be enough.
Eat a High Protein Breakfast
Did you know that eating bacon and eggs for breakfast can help you to lose weight?
A study found that people who ate a high-protein breakfast consumed fewer calories throughout the day than those who ate breakfasts that contained less protein.
Your body has to work harder to digest proteins than, for example, carbohydrates. And the harder your body has to work, the more calories it burns. Digesting high-protein foods also takes longer. As a result, eating ham and eggs will make you feel fuller longer than eating a bagel or muffin.
A high-protein breakfast also affects you on a hormonal level. After you eat a high protein meal, your body produces less of the hormone that makes you feel hungry. At the same time, your body produces more of the hormone that makes you feel full. The result is that you’ll eat less during your meals, and won’t feel the urge to snack as much between meals.
Worried about your high-protein breakfasts lacking variety? Well, you don’t have to eat bacon and eggs every morning. Some other foods you can work into your high-protein breakfasts include chicken, fish, cheese, ham, Canadian bacon, milk, beans, steak (the leaner the better) and nuts. Yogurt, especially Greek yogurt, is also high in protein.
Cold Water Inside and Out
Drinking water can help you to burn calories, but only if it’s the right temperature.
Your body likes to maintain a temperature somewhere between 97 and 99 degrees Fahrenheit. When something reduces your temperature, even a little bit, your body starts working to get that temperature back up where it likes it to be. And, again, the harder your body has to work, the more calories it will burn.
So doing things that will lower your body temperature—like drinking a glass of ice water or taking a really cold shower—will make your body burn more calories.
Looking for some easy ways to lose weight? Well you can’t get much easier than sucking in your stomach, eating high-protein foods for breakfast, and making sure the water you drink is ice cold. Once you put these simple techniques into action, you’ll be surprised by the results.
