Lose weight fast, without the gimmicks


If you’re trying to lose weight fast, you don’t have to rely on crazy gimmicks.

Most of the time you’ll probably end up just regaining the weight when you go back to your old habits. Instead, think about making some real changes to your lifestyle. It’s possible to lose weight quickly and safely, but it starts with choosing the right foods. That includes getting more spicy food in your diet. It’s thought capsaicin, the compound found naturally in hot peppers, may help increase the release of stress hormones, like adrenaline. In turn, it can speed up the burning of calories. There are lots of spicy hot peppers to choose from, so you should have plenty of variety when it comes to experimenting on the hot pepper scale.  

It's also a good idea to get more veggies in your diet, and to start with a good breakfast.

Think about eating more fiber, including fruits, veggies and whole grains, plus lean protein, unsweetened Greek yogurt, and nuts. Steer clear of compensating for the things your child won’t eat. Don’t feel obligated to eat your kids’ leftovers or eat something unhealthy that a co-worker brings into the office just because they made it from scratch. The caffeine in coffee can help with weight loss because it’s a natural diuretic, but don’t be fooled by caffeinated, sugary beverages. Healthier options include unsweetened tea and sparkling water.

If you’re having trouble remembering what you had to eat during the day or during the week, try using a food journal.

Sometimes writing it down gives you a better idea of what you’re consuming and helps you make those necessary changes. Apart from food, there are also some overall lifestyle adjustments you can make that help lead to a healthier lifestyle. This includes just going to bed a little earlier at night. It’s said less than seven hours of sleep a night can actually slow down your metabolism.
