1. Eat small meals more regularly
This is one of the best ways to tackle being overweight. By eating smaller meals, there is less energy to be stored as fat. Eating little and often also helps provide the body with more protein which helps to maintain muscle tissue, meaning a higher metabolism and therefore potential to burn fat faster. Eating small portions also benefits you as it stops you from feeling full and unable to want to get up and do anything, by eating little and often you are giving your body frequent short bursts of energy throughout the day so you keep your energy levels up and as you are satisfied you will not feel the need to snack between meals which means in actual fact, less food will be consumed.
2. Mix Up Your Workout
You should frequently try to mix up your workouts to stop your body from adapting. Change the exercises, amount of repetitions and the intensity of each set. To tone up and lose weight pretty quickly you should aim to push yourself to get maximum benefit in a short space of time, so for example try to do 30-40 minutes of moderate intensity cardiovascular exercise or 20 minutes of high intensity cardio 2-3 times a week. This could range from running, bike riding, stair climbing or even dancing, anything fairly strenuous that will keep your heart rate up for an extended time.
3. Drink plenty of fluid
Drinking plenty of fluids is essential for the body to function properly whether you want to lose weight or not. It is especially beneficial for weight loss; it flushes all the toxins and impurities away making it easier for your body to process food more efficiently, so you have less waste food building up which then turns into fat. Water also fills you up making you feel full especially when drank before a meal.
4. Eat Only When Hungry
The key thing with weight loss is to only eat when hungry. Eat enough to satisfy the hunger and then stop eating; do not eat until you feel stuffed. By training your body to eat only when necessary and until you are satisfied and then no more, you will lose weight. It takes time to understand the body’s signals but once you do you will recognise when it is time to eat and when to stop.
