It takes time to lose weight, perhaps more than what it takes to gain it. However, even with the millions of advice books and websites out there, weight loss revolves around some basic principles which anyone with a few extra pounds can use to their advantage.
The following are some effective, natural techniques that will help you shed the excess calories:
Drinks Lots and Lots of Water
No, this does not mean that drinking 8 glasses of water will miraculously burn your calories no matter what you consume otherwise. Rather, you need to replace your sugary, carbonated beverages with H20 in its purest form. A regular can of soda brings 200 calories in your body, and avoiding it can help you burn off at least 1 pound a week.
Eat Fiber, the “Whole” of it
Incorporate items like whole wheat, whole grain bread, and brown rice into your diet. You can still enjoy your sandwiches and rice, but adding fiber makes you full in lesser quantities than all the “white” items. Not to mention, fiber regulates your digestion as well. In this way, your body will automatically begin to burn calories, which will continue in the long run as well.
There is no substitute to exercise. But this doesn’t only include using the treadmill or a weekly visit to the gym. Be more active. Use the stairs. Mow your own lawn. Using more of your muscles throughout the day will create a guard against unwanted fat gain.
Use Garcinia Cambogia Extract
Garcinia Cambogia is a fruit native to Indonesia where it has been used for centuries as a spice. However, its extract serves as an effective dietary supplement that curbs your appetite. The extract contains Hyrdoxycitric acid which not only suppresses hunger but also blocks the creation of fatty cells in your stomach. So while your use natural techniques to lose weight, garcinia cambogia will greatly boost your efforts.
