Achieving your weight goal without dieting

Normally the first thing that comes to mind when you want to lose weight is dieting. Yet by doing this you might deprive your body of essential nutrients in the long run and not maintain the desired weight without sticking to a strict diet! How come? Because your mind as not caught up with the new you! You have neglected the importance of your mindset, the establishing of new, healthy routines, and most of the time have more of a nebulose idea of what you want instead of a clear motivation. Here are a few tips to help you succeed:

1. Make your breakfast your main meal. Skipping breakfast only increases your cravings later on and you are most likely to overeat at lunch and dinner. So make it a nutritious meal and be mindful when you are eating.

2. Do not skip meals as this will slow down your metabolism and induce you to eat more later.

3. Have dinner earlier. This will allow your metabolism a good rest before the next day, and allow your body to start burning fat instead.

4. Try having fruits at least 30 minutes before meals – this will detoxify your system and supply you with more energy to lose weight.

5. Avoid overcooking your meals and thus reducing the nutrients. This will induce you to feel less satisfied with your meal and crave for more. Avoid microwaving.

6. Serve smaller portions and chew your food properly. This will allow time for the brain to catch up with the message from your stomach that you are eating and that you are full.

7. Drink lots of water. Water helps the body to flush the toxins out and tends to help you feel fuller. Use it as a substitute for juices, soda and sweetened drinks to lose weight instantly! Start your day with a glass of warm water with half a lemon squeezed into to flush your liver and kidneys!

8. Have a good night’s sleep! It helps with the stresses of the day and brings the body to a good start again.

9. Exercise regularly. And I do not mean exhausting hours at the gym, or other strenuous activities. Just a short burst of any activity to raise the pulse 3 – 4 times a day will suffice. Even better if you do this before meals to boost your digestive system.

10. And finally, practice some kind of mindfulness. Whether it be yoga, tai chi or similar, meditating, doing some conscious breathing, or spending some time by yourself doing nothing, all and any of these will help decrease stress and give your body the opportunity to engage its digestive system properly.
