5 easy ways to lose weight at home
We know losing weight is always easier said than done. People either don’t weight take loss seriously or resort to extreme, unhealthy measures like crash dieting, liquid diets etc.
But what if we tell you that you can lose weight at home fast without crazy diets or fancy training equipment? Here are 5 easy ways you can lose weight at home without endangering your health.
1. CREATE A CALORIE DEFICIT
You can’t lose weight if you keep consuming more calories than you burn. Most weight-loss diets such as Keto, Paleo etc work on this simple principle of creating a calorie deficit.
Once you start consuming fewer calories than you burn, your body will start burning fat to provide energy, resulting in weight loss.
2. AVOID PROCESSED SUGAR
Excessive sugar intake is a major contributor to weight gain. So if you are trying to lose weight, cut down on sugar from your diet. This includes all foods with processed sugar like chocolates, aerated drinks, packaged fruit juices, desserts, readymade sauces, dips and all other similarly processed foods.
3. TRY INTERMITTENT FASTING
An efficient way to boost your metabolism and burn fat is practising intermittent fasting. There are 2 ways you can do this-
a) Fast on a fixed day
b) Eat within an 8-hour window every day. For eg. eating only between 12-8 pm or 11am-7pm
4. INCREASE YOUR PROTEIN INTAKE
Eating a protein-rich diet builds muscle mass, keeps you satiated for longer and helps avoids binge eating. Some good sources of protein are eggs, chicken, salmon, nuts, soya bean and hemp seeds.
