1. Train your mind.
Weight loss is about a good diet, rigorous exercise regime but most importantly about mental conviction. Before starting out on a weight loss journey, mentally make a note of why you are taking this step and keep this reason to keep you going and prevent you from catering to those cravings by binge eating.
2. Avoid food with high sugar content.
Insulin is the fat storage hormone in our bodies and sugary foods like desserts release insulin. This instantly raises our blood sugar level, in turn, resulting in fat storage. Lowering insulin also works as a detox for the body allowing kidneys to expel any excess sodium or nitrates, which may cause bloating. It is important to completely cut out fizzy drinks which also cause gas.
3. Do not leave out a food group.
Every year the weight loss industry makes one or the other food group the worst for the body. It is best to have all fats, carbs, and proteins as part of our diet. Food rich in protein has been shown to boost one’s metabolism and also reduces cravings
4. Water is your savior
Make sure to stay hydrated with water and other fluids throughout the day. One must drink at least 8 glasses of water a day to prevent all that bloating. A glass of water with lemon in it is recommended right after you wake up.
5. Fiber is key to a healthy gut.
Food like vegetables is high in fiber, which prevents constipation and also helps one get a flat belly soon. It also helps in better digestion and improving your immune system in the long run.
