Although it is pretty impossible to lose weight without any effort on your part whatsoever, it doesn’t have to be a painless process either. It is possible to lose weight without too much hardship on your part, just check out these simple, painless ways to lose the weight if you don’t believe me…
Eat Whole Foods Instead of Counting Calories
Counting calories can be an effective way to control your food intake and lose weight, but a lot of people find it inconvenient, and often tedious beyond belief. If you’re one of them, you’ll be happy to know that calorie counting isn’t essential and that if you focus on eating healthy whole foods, which tend to be lower in calories and richer in nutrients, you should see significant weight loss over time.Using a smaller plate will help you to get the portion control right too!
(Mostly) Drink Water
There’s nothing wrong with having a cup of coffee or tea when you’re dieting, providing you hold the sugar, but pretty much anything else you should drink should be replaced with water. Order bottled water packs instead of your usual cans of soda and replace the fruit juice with fruit infused water, and you’ll save hundreds, potentially thousands of calories each month, which will put a dent in your weight loss without being too difficult.
A very painless way to cut hundreds of calories out of your diet is to use cans of Frylight spray oil for cooking instead of your usual vegetable oil or butter. It will get your foods just as crisp and delicious, but it will only add 1 calorie per spray to your meals. That means you could save 100 calories for every dish you fry!
Eat Healthy Snacks
Something that sets a lot of dieters back and makes it more difficult for them to lose weight is their belief that they should cut out snacks altogether. More often than not, this leaves them feeling hungry and miserable and leads to an inevitable binge. So, if you want to lose weight and to lose it painlessly, instead of giving up snacks altogether, replace them with healthy alternatives like carrot sticks and hummus, fruit or peanut butter and rice crackers, and nuts, which will keep your blood sugar level and prevent hunger pangs.
If you hate exercise, but you know that being more active would help you to lose a few more pounds, instead of joining the gym or trying to force yourself to get up for an early morning run each day, simply start walking ore. Whenever there’s a short journey, you need to make, leave the car at home, take the stairs instead of the elevator and go for a brisk walk around the block after dinner every night. You’d be surprised how much difference this can make.
These ideas might seem simple, but they do work, and they are about as painless as you can get when you’re attempting to lose weight, so give them a try and let me know how you got on.
