6 things you didnt know about weight loss

Most people generally follow the conventional norm of dieting when it comes to losing weight. They will skip meals, keep fasts, consume low-fat products and take stairs instead of lifts. But, this type of calorie counting will only make them lose their mind, and not weight. Even the nutritionists agree that fasting and skipping meals is not a healthy way to lose weight. Such practices tend to make people look weaker and frail. But, there are some amazing ways of weight loss, which they do not pay much heed to. So, take a look at these simple tricks which will help in shedding kilos in a healthier manner.

Limit your drinks to water only. While you are trying to slim down, reduce your intake of tea, juice and coffee. If you are desperately craving for juice, then try eating a fruit instead of drinking a packaged one. This way, you get more nutrition without the excess sugar found in the packaged juice. Also, limit your coffee consumption to one cup a day, and tea to two cups. Avoid adding sugar to them. You can also opt for healthier options like green tea and decaffeinated coffee.
 Go Chinese!
Chinese food is one of the healthiest cuisines in the world. From that, we do not mean the ‘Indian-ised’ and greasy version of the food. But the original Chinese dishes, which include boiled and crunchy vegetables, broiled meat and steamed rice. Traditionally, Chinese food is either baked or stir-fried. It consists of a huge variety of vegetables and healthy soups. Also, it involves a lot of seafood and soybeans, with minimal amount of sugar. So, having it can really help you to shed your excess weight. And, if you are not that comfortable with eating Chinese food, then there is still another Chinese trend you can try out. Try eating with chopsticks. This will help you to eat slowly. So, your body will have time to respond to your stomach’s cues saying that it is full, thus preventing you from consuming empty calories.
