5 Expert Secrets For Fast Weight Loss
Reshape Your Mornings
The best weight loss program is one that starts first thing in the morning. As soon as your eyes open, sit up without using your hands. With your legs straight out, lean forward until you feel a gentle stretch in your back and hamstrings. Hold that pose; then, using your abs, lower yourself flat. Rest and repeat two more times. This will strengthen your core.
If you eat cereal for breakfast, sprinkle a few tablespoons of wheat germ or oat bran on top. Eat no more than to 3/4 cup of low-sugar whole-grain cereal with at least three grams of fiber per serving, and you’ll pass on that Danish. This will save you about 100 calories. Try your best to get out of the cereal phase and start your day with some protein.The more you eat earlier on, the less you eat as the day wears on, research has shown. So instead of cereal, add a hard-boiled egg or even a piece or two of cheese.
After breakfast while you brush your teeth, alternate standing on one leg as you switch mouth quadrants (every 30 seconds). Balancing develops your core muscles and may even be good for your brain. This will burn an extra 10 calories.
If you must have coffee in the mornings to get your day started, drink it black. The sugar and creamer will go a long way in sabotaging your diet. If you don’t like black coffee, replace it with an apple. Apples are actually more effective at waking you up than coffee.
A healthy start to your day will result in you being happier and full of energy throughout the day. Don’t expect rapid weight loss just because you changed your morning routine. Fat loss and dieting is lifestyle change, which means you have to reshape your entire day.
