1. Skip Breakfast - Start Your Day with Fasting
If you want to lose weight quickly but don't want to get on a low-carb diet, try fasting.
Better yet, do a morning fast.
Morning fasting means you skip breakfast and snacks. Treat your lunch as your first meal.
This method is known as intermittent fasting. The idea is to cycle between periods of eating and fasting.
One example is to eat your last meal at 8 pm. Fast then on for 16 hours through the morning the next day. You break your fast with lunch at noon.
People have been using this 16-hour fasting to lose weight, improve their health and burn fat.
There are a couple of reasons why intermittent fasting works.
One is depletion of foods by skipping one or two meals can help your body tap into fat to fuel itself. It's a fat burning mechanism that works for weight loss and fat loss.
Another reason is cutting back on meals can naturally decrease your total calories. It's an effortless way to reduce your calorie intake that's easy to incorporate.
In addition to weight loss, studies show there are benefits to brain health and longevity (1, 2).
While there are many fasting methods out there, the easiest to start is the 16/8 method also known as 16-hour fast.
It has you limit your eating to 8 hours a day, and that's really all you have to do. With incredible ease to start, you can literally start fasting tomorrow.
2. Exercise First thing in the Morning
Working out on an empty stomach can help you lose 20 percent more body fat (3).
For this to work, your body has to be in a complete fasted state where glycogen is depleted.
By doing that, your body will tap into the stored fat for fuel, leading to a greater fat burn.
According to a 2016 study, men who didn't have breakfast before working out burned more fat (4).
To get the most out of the fat burn, do a 20-minute full-body workout that gets all your major muscle groups working.
A short exercise routine like one under 30 minutes is all you need to take advantage of this greater fat burn.
3. Drink a Glass of Water 30 Minutes Before Each Meal
This is a healthy weight loss habit for many reasons.
One, getting in a habit of drinking more water is good for you.
Many people don't drink enough water in a day, so any way to supplement that is beneficial to your health.
Two, you'll partly fill your stomach, helping you to feel full faster.
We tend to eat for taste, which means we eat past the point of feeling full, and that's one reason we put on weight. Giving your body a head start with a glass of water is an easy way to prevent overeating.
This is scientifically backed too. According to research, drinking a glass of water half an hour before meals aids weight loss. Over a 3 month period, they saw a 44% increase in weight loss (5).
It's a remarkable result especially all you have to do is to drink a glass of water before you begin eating.
Besides all these, drinking plenty of water boosts one's metabolism. It also cleanses your body inside and helps you rid of waste.
