Ways to Lose Weight

4:36 AM


Do not follow fad diets.
Most fad diets, like the banana diet and green tea diet, aren't very effective. While there may be a little change in body weight, it's nature's rule to maintain homeostasis in our body, so lost weight will be gained back, and actually, more weight might be gained than lost. Fad diets have a tendency to exhaust muscles essential to the body, make metabolic conditions unstable, and make people lethargic.


Avoid fad exercises and equipment
There are many people who think that exercise must be done in a gym or with purchased equipment, but there are many ways to exercise. Just remember that movement is necessary to lose weight. And remember that the best exercises are walking, jogging, hiking, cycling, and weight training.

Eat early
According to one study, simply controlling meals by eating a healthy breakfast, eating lunch, and then eating a light dinner can reduce body weight. If possible, eat dinner at least 4 hours before sleeping.

Create a situation to walk or run 5 km, 10 km (3-6 miles)
For example, the way to and from work or the way to school can be used. Or join and participate in hiking, in-line skating, or marathon clubs. Going to and from work happens at least 5 times a week, and using this time to walk or run would be a natural and regular way to exercise effectively. As a matter of fact, people who have tried this say that they lost weight easily.

Find an exercise you enjoy
Many people like walking outdoors. If the scenery isn't so beautiful, try walking with some music, or a friend, and try to enjoy walking itself. You'll be able to think of other ways to enjoy walking.

Do aerobic exercises (walking, jogging, swimming, cycling, aerobics, etc.) for 30-60 minutes in the morning
Aerobic exercise increases the secretion of a hormone that burns fat. And, because it reduces the hormone that stores fat, raises basal metabolic rate, and consumes calories, it is very effective. The human body is designed to move every day. If there is little movement throughout the day, the body will try to store as much fat as it can. But if you exercise, the body will try to get rid of fat. First, start by deciding on a time to exercise every day.

Do weight training 3 times a week.
Muscle raises basal metabolic rate and burns more calories. With a higher basal metabolic rate, more calories can be burned while sleeping. A tight body makes a person look younger and increases energy.

Restrain from drinking.
Drinking lowers the basal metabolic rate and increases appetite. And above all, it's high in calories.

Drink 1.8 L of water daily.
Our bodies need a lot of water to maintain its functions. Because water helps a person feel satiated, people trying to lose weight should carry a water bottle and drink often.

Do weight training 3 times a week.
Muscle raises basal metabolic rate and burns more calories. With a higher basal metabolic rate, more calories can be burned while sleeping. A tight body makes a person look younger and increases energy.

Don't weigh yourself everyday!
Body weight can change in a day. But this fluctuation doesn't reflect the loss or gain of fat. Body weight should be measured once a week.

If possible, exercise in the morning.
90% of people who exercise continuously exercise in the morning. Exercising in the morning boosts energy levels for the day. And many people say that exercising in the morning reduces their appetite during the day.

Do 15-30 minutes of aerobic exercise in the evening.
Doing aerobic exercises before or after dinner is even more effective. Choose exercises that are fun, safe, and not tedious. Pick different types of exercises like walking in the morning and cycling at night.
