There are many people that claimed a certain diet worked for them and that they lost a lot of weight. But what do experts believe when it comes to trendy weight loss campaigns?
According to MirrorOnline, the NHS has some important advice on how you can lose weight without sticking to a diet. The next tips are quite sensible when it comes to living a healthy life.
There are many people who think they’re hungry, instead of realizing that they were just thirsty. Drink more water during the day and you’ll see that you won’t need to eat too many calories.
And if you’re thinking of replacing that glass of water with a glass of wine in the evening, there’s some bad news. Alcohol contains a lot more calories than we thought. Two glasses of wine contain the same calories you find in a burger. Shedding the extra calories from the glasses of wine should take about a half an hour of running!
Eat High-Fiber Foods
Eating foods high in fiber like fruits, veggies, beans, peas, oats, brown rice or wholegrain bread will make you feel full.
Eat more fruits and vegetables every day. Not only you cut calories, but you also stay healthy and they help you lose some weight.
Don’t Ban Treats
Usually, diets ban some foods, but on the NHS Choices website experts advise against it:
“Don’t ban any foods from your weight loss plan, especially the ones you like. Banning foods will only make you crave them more. There’s no reason you can’t enjoy the occasional treat as long as you stay within your daily calorie allowance.”
A Schedule and No Snacks
Burning calories can be done faster if we eat at regular times and with no snacks in between the meals.
Last but not least, NHS advises us to find a reasonable way to do exercise. It’s best if we plan a time in the week to go running, swimming or play with our children in the park, or even walk/cycle to and back from work.
