Science-Based Tips for Losing Weight

So, we all want to lose weight and look and feel better. You might have tried dieting, fasting, exercising and much more but it has either been unsuccessful, or the success rate is really low. The one thing you might have forgotten is that the science behind losing weight lies with the food you eat. Exercising and not watching what you eat will not lead to weight loss.

Alongside kisses for breakfast, take proteins for breakfast. They have been shown to reduce cravings and the calories intake throughout the day. This will speed up the fat-loss process.

Hydrate More:

Taking in water increases your metabolism and decreases your hunger, meaning you will burn more calories and eat less often. A study showed that drinking water a half hour before meals, increases weight loss by 44% after 3 months.

Cut on the Sugary Stuff:

These are the most fattening things you can put in your body. Avoiding them will aid in fat-loss. Unless you are making it yourself, juices, soft drinks like Coke (including Diet), milk, creamers and sugar in drinks like tea and coffee, are all calorie drinks that you should avoid.

Store and Eat Healthy Foods:

Fruits are your best friend. Make sure you have lots of these guys. Vegetables are the other foods you should never miss. Try to have a meal that has lots of veggies. Where possible, take vegetables-only meals periodically.

Avoid Unhealthy Foods:

Here we are. Processed foods, BAD! Fast foods, BAD! High carb diet, BAD!

People on low-carbohydrate diets lose more weight than those on high-carbohydrate diets. Soluble fibers reduce fat, especially around the belly area. Fiber supplements like glucomannan have been proven to help.

Eat Slowly:

You are not being rushed. Eat slowly. This is especially helpful because eating slowly makes you fuller and boosts weight-reducing hormones.

Finally, Sleep Better:
