Weight Loss Strategies That Truly Work
You have finally found the right diet plan which suits you and you are slowly loosing weight? If you need some new healthy techniques, give the following a try. They’ll definitely help you to reach your weight-loss goals faster.
1. Add Flax Seed
Fiber makes you feel fuller longer, and flaxmeal is one of those foods that you can hardly taste but which offers a bulking effect to your food. Sprinkle it in your smoothie, yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, salad dressing, soups, cooked whole grains, and baked goods.
2. Put Aside a Dollar For Every Pound Lost
Put an empty mason jar on your counter where you see it a few times every day. Every time you exercise, throw money in the jar — $1 for regular workouts, $5 for longer ones like workshops, hikes, or races. After the workout piggybank is full, go out and use it to reward your efforts (in a healthy way, of course).
3. Add Protein Powder
Used typically for protein smoothies, you can add protein powder to just about anything, from nut butters to oatmeal, pancakes and waffles, and baked goods. Getting extra protein will make anything you eat more satisfying, which means you’ll feel less hungry. And research shows doubling your protein intake can help you lose weight faster.
4. Eat Rainbow Colored Foods
There is something to be said for a plate being visually pleasing that adds to your feeling of satisfaction. Plus eating a rainbow of vibrant colors also encourages you to eat more variety, which can also make you feel happier and more content.
5. Eat More
Admittedly, that sounds nuts if you’re trying to lose weight, but research shows eating more often — smaller meals and snacks five to six times a day instead of three large meals — can help you lose weight faster. It has to do with boosting your metabolism, which translates to more calories burned per day.
