So for the New Year you are trying to lose some weight like everyone else. You think about it but still do not want to go to the gym. We need to think of another way right?
There are things you can do to lower your weight without going to the gym. Here are tips on how to do so:
Tip # 1 Hydro power- even though people do drink water they do not drink enough. A human can live almost a month without food but less than 7 days without water. Water is self-sustaining but we do not drink enough water. Put down the calories like soda and coffee and drink water. If you drink a nice cold glass of water when you wake up it will give you a nice little wake up call. Drinking it throughout the day will actually increase your metabolism as well. With zero calories it will allow you to drop the 500 calories you are drinking of empty carbohydrates per day.
Tip # 2 Take the stairs, park the furthest from the parking lot, ETC- this sounds like not a lot but how many times in a day do you have to walk for an hour to burn off 100-200 calories? Look for ways of burning extra calories without taking too much out of your day. Taking the stairs twice a day can burn up to 150 calories in a 4 story building a day! Walking further can burn a lot of calories and you are still going to the place you intended to be. Look for things like that and you should be losing 1-2 pounds a month.
Tip # 3 Sleep your butt off- So when you think about it how many days a week do you get eight hours of sleep? Most Americans do not get proper sleep so your body stores extra calories thinking that it is in survival mode. It also causes your body to stress which of course stress generates a nice little hormone called "Cortisol" which causes belly fat. So to combat it get your eight hours, turn the TV off and do not eat after nine so you get a good night sleep!
Tip # 4 Eyes are bigger than your stomach- They stated that if you serve yourself smaller portions of the same food you will not eat as much of calories through the day. This also goes hand in hand with eating slower. "Leptin" is a hormone released in the body telling you it is full and it takes a little bit of time so slow your roll.
These are some tips to help you be healthy and lose some unwanted beer gut. Remember these things and it can help you in the coming year. There are many tips to losing weight, so try to be healthy and fit together and you should be ready for anything.
