7 Free Weight Loss Tips

By Elizabeth Stewart

Everyone wants a good free weight loss tip. So, let me pose this question: Who among us can truly say that they are as lean and toned as they ever want to be? Most people, even the fitness buffs, are in a constant fluctuation between their ideal body and a body that is not quite ideal. So how do we turn this struggle in our favor? Many times the difference between the body that you have today and the body that you wish you had is made up of simple everyday decisions. Below I have compiled free weight loss tip or two.

  1. Eating small meals every 2-3 waking hours will increase your metabolism and reduce fat storage. Make sure that these are healthy meals containing protein, carbohydrates and fat.
  2. The easiest way to effortlessly lose weight is to not eat carbs three hours before bed. It has been proven that not eating three hours before bed reduces fat storage throughout the night. Eating protein can also help to accelerate the fat burning at night.
  3. Eating a balanced diet is key in maintaining a healthy body weight
  4. The average sized iced coffee drink weighs in at over 500 calories. Stay away from these
  5. Desserts should be eaten sparingly at an average of no more than two each week. If you really need something sweet, then eat a piece of fruit, such as grapes, or a nice peach. These are very sweet and will quench the sweet tooth you are having.
  6. When eating, eat a small meal and wait 20 minutes. This will give your stomach and brain time to communicate. It actually takes 20 minutes for the stomach to feel full, then to relay this signal to the brain. This is why when you over eat, you are normally eating too fast, and don’t give the stomach enough time to say stop.
  7. Steer clear of any food which says fat free. These normally have a ton of sugar in them, to replace the fat. Also, read the ingredients, and stay away from high fructose corn syrup. This is a sure sign of a manufactured and not natural product. Also, most of these are preserved, which is also bad for you.

If you can really incorporate some of these free weight loss tips into your lifestyle, you will gradually lose the weight, and stay fit. Also, it is not always about the weight, as much as it is about being healthy. Ever see those skinny people eating all the fast food they want to? Do you really think they are healthy because they are skinny? They will drop dead just like the rest of us. Just by following a free weight loss tip you can be on a path to being healthy.
