Sometimes losing weight can be challenging. You have to plan your meals ahead, be careful how many calories you consume, waste even more time exercising. All in all it could get pretty exhausting and very time consuming.
Fortunately, it doesn’t always require so much effort. There are some simple methods you can use to lose weight without even trying. Here is a list of such methods.
Play More Video Games
Apparently, according to a new study playing video games can help you lose weight due to the fact that they help you reduce the frequency of your cravings as opposed to waiting and doing nothing.
This is because video games distract you so that you don’t think so much about eating. So, next time you feel like eating some chocolate go play candy crush or fruit ninja instead.
Place Good Food Closer
When you’re lazy you tend make food choices based on how lazy you are. A recent study has shown that lazy people tend to eat the food that is most accessible to them at that certain time. This is the reason why it is important to keep thing such as a bowl of fruits closer to you so that when you get hungry, you’ll be certain to eat something healthy.
It seems that oversleeping helps you eat less and therefore lose weight. Studies have shown that sleeping less than 5 hours a night could cause you to gain 30% more weight than when you sleep 7 hours or more. Next time when you think about getting out of bed, don’t.
Only Coffee, No Sugar
Next time you’re out and you order a cup of coffee or a cup of tea (if you ever order tea), lose the sugar. Opting to have your drink without sugar means giving up on some unnecessary extra calories so although it may be less pleasant, you would be doing yourself a favor.
Eat Sitting Down
This may seem a little odd at first giving the fact that you would think everyone eats sitting down but if you look back at all the times you had had to eat while walking because you needed to be somewhere at a certain hour this idea starts to make sense.
Researchers at Cornell University have discovered that people tend to eat more out of bigger containers when ordering on the go. Sitting down makes more conscious of what you eat and how much you eat and this way you can be more careful not to exaggerate.
Having a stressful life makes want to eat more and not necessary healthy food. Being stressed can also influence the way the food we eat affects us. A recent study has shown that people who live a more stressful life tend to gain more body fat than people with less stress despite eating the same amount of food. Try changing your life style to reduce the stress, take a chill pill once in a while.
