Want to Learn 10 Things You Can Do To Lose Fat Without Even Trying?

1. Eat smaller more frequent meals

Lose fat without even trying be eating more meals.  Not only is your metabolism boosted every time you eat something, your body can more efficiently process smaller meals.  Instead of having 3 large meals in a day, try to break them up into 5 or 6 smaller meals.

2. Drink more water

You can lose fat without even trying by having a drink.  Regular water intake helps to flush away waste products in the body. Get at least six to eight 8 oz. glasses per day. An easy way to do this is to keep a water bottle handy and drink from it frequently.

3. Be inefficient

Do you need to go to the kitchen to get a couple of things?  Break it up into to two trips even if you can do it in one.  Being inefficient like this can easily double your activity level, burning calories without even trying.

4. Eat more protein

Sources of protein include foods such as chicken, fish, eggs, dairy, beans, lean red meats, etc.  Your body burns more calories processing protein than either carbohydrates or fats.  Protein also helps to support your muscle tissue, which burns calories all day long!

5. Take the stairs instead of the elevator

Any time you can add in a little more physical activity, do it.  This doesn’t mean you need to slog up 20 flights of stairs.  Even a flight or two done regularly will add up and this can help you lose fat without even trying.

6. Don’t let yourself get hungry

When you get hungry you will have a much greater tendency to overeat when you do finally get something to eat.  As well, because your body is starting to go into starvation mode, it will be much more likely to hold onto whatever you give it.

7. Order small portions at restaurants

It’s tough to order small french fries when “supersizing” your order is such a great “value.”  Take note, however, your real savings will occur in the calories that don’t end up on your backside.

8. Eat more fiber

Lose fat without even trying by increasing your fiber intake.  Fiber is very filling. By eating more fiber you will find yourself full sooner.  This feeling of fullness will last a long time as well.   According to www.HelpGuide.org, “Complex carbohydrates—the “good carbs”—have not been stripped of their fiber and nutrients. Because they’re rich in fiber, they keep you full longer and help with weight control. Good sources of complex carbs include whole grains such as whole grain brown rice, stone ground whole wheat, millet, or quinoa, as well as beans, other legumes, fruit, and vegetables.”

9. Wait 20 minutes between servings

Your brain takes at least 20 minutes to register that you’re full.  By waiting that long, you’ll give your brain a chance to realize that you don’t really need any more food.  This can help you lose fat without even trying.

10. Cheat on your diet

One thing I always make my clients promise is that they will cheat on their diet.  The only thing I ask that they do is to cheat ONLY when they have planned to cheat.  By planning when you are going to eat the foods you crave, you take back control of your eating habits.  This way you no longer “give in” to your cravings.  You “reward yourself” for sticking to proper nutritional habits. Do this once or twice a week and you will feel far more in control of your eating.

If you follow even a few of these 10 easy tips in the long term, you can lose fat without even trying and, certainly notice a difference in your overall weight and health.   Below you’ll find a free workout program you can use to get started…
