  • Throw away the scale – Well, wait a minute what’s that? Now, how would I note down my progress if I just throw it away? Well, there are many parameters to measure your progress, such as how well your clothes are fitting, how energetic you are feeling, sometimes inch loss does wonders for your health and on your self-confidence. And when you feel better you are much more likely to stick to a rule and stay disciplined, not when you are sad and dejected.
  • Eat more fruits and veggies – You love carbs, yes I know so does most of us, but too much of carbs can spell bad news for your waistline and your health, especially refined carbs. So, fill up yourself with fiber-filled fruits and veggies. Try and have fruits on an empty stomach as it then absorbs the maximum nutrients from the fruits.
  • Have your breakfast – Yes, do not avoid it at any cost, it fills you up and stops you from binging later. A bowl of porridge is a perfect meal to have in the morning.
  • Drink plenty of water – At least eight glasses of water every, single, day. We drink too little and sometimes when we have those annoying hunger pangs in the middle of the day, it may be that you are just thirsty and not hungry! So, whenever your body cries for some crazy junk food, drink a glass of water first and see if the finicky hunger pangs go away. Even if it doesn’t don’t hog on junk, have a fruit instead, or nuts, it will keep you full for long hours.
  • Eat two-three hours before you hit the sack – Having an early dinner works every time. You are able to digest your food by the time your hit snooze button and you will sleep better and also burn the extra fat better, which brings us to the next point.
  • Get at least 7-8 hours of sleep – Latest research has advocated the fact that quality sleep helps control your weight better. So, no more canoodling with your gadgets just before sleep time. It hinders your sleep and helps you gain a few pounds more! Your bae isn’t the gadget in hand, but sleep is!
  • Avoid sugar – Sugar is the enemy and however sumptuous those desserts look, looking askance is the best way to avoid weight gain and losing weight in the long run. Binging on sugary desserts can seriously hamper your health leading to a host of chronic diseases. It may be too difficult to give up on sugar altogether. So substitute it with jaggery, raw honey, and stevia leaves, but consume them in moderation and avoid artificial sweeteners like plague, they are a sure shot recipe for disaster!!
  • Gluten and dairy – I am not telling you to get off them, but people with underlying hormonal problems do not respond too well to dairy, especially. Gluten interferes with your digestion if you have a gut problem. So, you have to get off them and find out whether it works for you and whether it is helping you lose weight. If you think it is not helping you then you can add them right back into your diet, simple!
