How to lose weight without hitting the gym
Losing weight takes a lot of discipline and determination, whether in the gym or outside it. Some of us just don't have the time for hitting the gym. Or maybe we are just not a gym-person. So how do we get rid of all the excess fat reserved in our body? Follow these steps to achieve your desired weight without sweating it out.
Not all of us are conscious enough to count every calorie, so try to make your meal portions smaller. And bunk the second helping altogether. You can take shorter lunch breaks at work so that you don't over-eat.
Avoid too much sweet:
If you really need to have a dessert after your meals then try to swap the ice-creams and cakes with a piece of dark chocolate. It's a healthier option to satisfy your sweet tooth without piling up on the calories.
Move your butt:
Having a sedentary lifestyle can make losing weight very difficult. Take regular breaks every 2 hours to walk around the office. Skip the elevator and start taking the stairs whenever possible. Enrol for a fun weekend dance class. The more you move, the faster you lose that weight.
Sleep is more than just a pretty-making mechanism. Your digestive system is also pumping hard to process your food, metabolizing carbohydrates and breaking down fats. Some studies have linked sleep deprivation to weight problems; so the bottom line is – if you don't want your ‘bottom' to grow bigger, hit the sack at the earliest.
That's right; sex is a great way to shed the extra calories. An average sex session burns 150 to 250 calories per half hour – depending on how hot, flexible and athletic your session was. Now don't be disheartened even if you aren't extremely acrobatic in love-making, as sex naturally gets your heart rate up, which in turn improves circulation and burns calories and fat.
Laugh while you still have teeth:
Last but not the least – laugh more! Laughing heartily five times a day has the same beneficial effects as ten minutes on a rowing machine. How great is that!
