How to lose weight without dieting

You may have heard of fad diets or crash diets that may help you lose weight. But these so called quick weight loss diets leave you food deprived and hungry and going to the gym is not your type either. So what to are in hell of situation. 

So is there any way for you to lose weight without dieting and without gym. ................ the answer is .......oh hell .........yeah. For all those who don't have the time or inclination to undertake a crash diet or even hit the gym, we've got some great news. If you want to slim down the healthy and painless way, try the following strategies. 

1. Research suggests that when offered with a variety of foods for a meal, we tend to eat more. Therefore, replace some high-fat dishes on your menu with more vegetables. Make two varieties of green veggies, instead of one, and you'll feel satisfied without sabotaging your weight loss program. Say yes to the veggies!
2. Eat slowly: Take a pause from your chaotic schedule and really eat your food. CHEW MORE, EAT LESS Studies show that the longer time you spend chewing, the lesser calories you consume. Chewing for longer prevents over-eating, by giving the brain more time to receive signals from the stomach that it is full.

Chew your food slowly, It is not only great for digesting, but it also helps in limiting your portion size. Try chewing your food 35 to 50 times per mouthful and be conscious of every bite you eat. Wolfing down a meal makes you eat a lot more than when you eat slowly. 

3. Pick whole grains over processed: Brown rice, barley, oats, whole wheat must all be your friends. They will improve your lipid profile (lower bad cholesterol), consequently helping you in losing weight.  Substituting whole grains whenever possible can help you fill up faster. These healthy carbohydrates can be found in many prepared products like pizza crust, waffles, English muffins, and pasta.

4. Watch the alcohol: According to researchers, drinkers those who consumed more than four drinks a day had considerably higher odds. Also, when you consume more than the recommended quantities of alcohol, you tend to indulge more in foods that are bad for you.
5. Focus on your target: Do you have a pair of jeans that you would like to fit into? A little colourful sundress you dream of wearing one day? Hang it up in front of your eyes! 

Yes, believe it - motivation is half the battle won. Every time you’re struck by that sinister craving for indulging in those fries, picture the dress, and feel the steely resolve come back.

6. Home-cooked is good: Carry a lunch box to work. Carry a fruit box to your evening picnic. Carry a few bread sticks and some low fat yoghurt to your road trip. Carrying healthy food can work wonders. 

Skip the cafeteria food. If cooking in the early morning rush seems like a daunting task, you could try preparing for it the night before. It is a little more work, but definitely worth it!

7. Several studies do suggest that green tea can boost the body’s capacity to burn more calories, possibly through the action of phytochemicals called catechins. Even if it isn't quite the wonder-beverage we'd like to believe it is, a healthy beverage that replaces something unhealthy like an ice-cream shake, or a creamy coffee is definitely worth a look-see.

8. Walk more: Okay! I don’t want you to be a marathon walker, but studies have revealed that walking for twenty minutes a day can help you burn 100 calories more than usual! 

 So, get off the bus one stop before your destination and walk the rest of the way. Take the stairs instead of the lift and leave the car at home when you’re going shopping to the mall next door.

9. Serve in smaller plate: If you pick a 10-inch plate instead of a 12-inch one, your mind will never notice that you've just shaved off about a 100 or 200 calories from your daily food intake. And doctors have found that most people didn't even notice the difference in amounts, but just instinctively ate less, and didn't even feel less full at the end of it.

10. Be smart at restaurants: Eating in restaurants can add those calories like you never could at home. So, order smart. Maybe you could split the starters with a friend, or order the appetiser as the meal. Ask for the option of a half plate. Remember, you don’t have to finish it all, leftovers can be packed too.
