Worldwide, obesity tripled between 1975 and 2020, with approximately 1.9 billion adults being overweight. Of these, more than 650 million adults were obese. Staying healthy today takes a lot of effort and time, which, unfortunately, is something most of us don’t have much of.
We offers you 6 ways to optimize your weight loss regimen so that you can stay healthy and happy.
How to Naturally Speed Up Weight Loss
Eat Before Eating
A recent study found that eating a bowl of soup before a meal can help reduce appetite. One likely explanation would be that while you wait for the soup to cool, you need to eat it slowly, which gives your brain, hormones, and stomach plenty of time to coordinate a “satiety” message.
Spice Up Your Food
Do you love spicy food? If so, we have good news. Eating spicy foods can temporarily increase your metabolism by up to 8%, thereby increasing your body’s calorie-burning rate.
Also, eating spicy foods has been observed to stimulate people to eat slowly, which is good for their metabolism.
Eat Healthy Snacks
Eat more, but not at mealtime. Yes, you read correctly. In the process of losing weight, you have probably lengthened the time between meals.
While this may seem logical, waiting until you are very hungry will likely cause you to eat more before feeling satisfied. Also, you are likely to eat quickly, which is definitely not recommended.
Keep healthy snacks like sunflower seeds, almonds, sliced apples, whole grain crackers, and low-fat cheeses on hand and eat them every few hours.
Adequate rest is very important for the proper functioning of your body. One study found that dieters consumed 6% fewer calories when they got enough sleep.
Drink A Lot Of Tea
8 glasses of water a day is a fad. You should still drink water, but drink only when you are thirsty. For other occasions, tea is the best option.
Tea (especially green tea) contains many antioxidants and can help you lose weight. As a bonus, green tea also helps protect against cancer.
Embrace The Color Blue
Research has shown that people tend to eat less when they eat dishes with a higher color contrast between the plate and the food.
The researchers found that people eat 33% less in a blue room.
