Struggling to lose weight? Or maintain your goal weight?
So did I.. following these easy tips I transformed my body and mindset.
Many people counting calories to control the diet, or part of a specific diet that request to eat a certain amount of calories. The problem with counting calories is a big hassle of weighing and measuring every piece of food that goes into your mouth. What if you wanna have stir-fry, stew or soup? It will be a lot of hassle and time to count all the ingredients!
It also can create food obsession, that can develop an eating disorder.
On top of that calories on food labels are not accurate.
The FDA permits an error on food labels marks up to 20% either way.
I personally not counting calories! I tried before, and it didn’t work for me. Something about truck all that I been putting in my mouth made me stress. Also, I hate the hunger feeling and don’t like the limited feeling. After all its all
psychological. I’m going to share my tips that helped me to lose weight and maintain my correct goal weight without count calories or feelings of hunger.
half a plate vegetables
Veggies are a superfood, healthy full of vitamins and minerals. They are also full of fibers that make you feel full longer. And because of the crunchy hard texture of them, you will chew longer which will make you eat slower and get full faster. Even if I got cooked veggies for my meal, I would still fill half a plate of vegetables. I highly recommend the veggie bullet; it’s my time saver with the number of veggies that I eat. 3-in-1 functionality: automatically spiralize, shred, and slice!
Most of the people got eyes bigger than the stomach. The desire to fill our plate it’s normal. The trick is to trick your brain by eating from a smaller plate. Portion size is critical to weight control, and when using a smaller plate for meals helps you eat the right portion sizes. The Smaller Plate Study found that reducing plate size from 12 inches to 10 inches typically results in 22% fewer calories being served. It work great for me. Check this 10-inch plate portion control from Amazon.
The liquid of life, water boosts your energy, helps digestion, increases metabolism and calorie burn, it keeps you from drink high-calorie drinks and much more. Drinking about 2 cups of water 30 minutes before meals can help curb your appetite, so you eat less during the meal and lose weight. Without a doubt, water has a big part in my weight loss.
cut junk in half
Process food that contains lots of sugar, trans fat, chemicals, preservative and more is BAD for you. Although cut it all in once it’s not easy, and can even lead to overeating after. My suggestion is to cut all the sweets and junk in half, in the beginning, and when you start seeing some good results such a weight loss, more energy, etc. then you will cut the rest. It worked like a charm for me at the beginning of my journey and now I’m not in need of any of junk food at all.
Diet high in nutrient-dense foods
What mean (a lot of nutrients per calorie) and low in calorie-dense foods (few calories per gram of food weight). Examples of foods with a high nutrient density include vegetables, fruits, high fiber unprocessed grains, and lean meats.
Benefits of the diet: 1) Controlled calorie intake without calorie counting. 2)A longer feeling of satisfaction 3)Difficulty overeating. 4) A higher total essential nutrient intake.
