The world is quarantined right now, due to pandemic. RIP our 2020 goals & resolutions. If you also had a resolution of losing weight, here is a quick guide on how to lose weight at home.

Water intake (The magic trick to lose weight):

Drinking plenty of water can help with metabolism and, most importantly, it can also make you feel full for longer. The best option is to eat more fibrous food, usually more vegetables and drink plenty of water. There are times when we confuse thirst with hunger, have a glass of water instead of your favorite snacks.

It is highly recommended to intake warm water for better weight loss, apart from losing weight, it has many more health benefits, including glowing skin 😉 

This is a magic mantra, now you know how to lose weight at home naturally.

Intermittent Fasting (easier approach for losing weight):

You can significantly minimize calorie intake by consuming only in a certain time-window a day. Perhaps the most common approach will be to opt for intermittent fasting. There are two ways to go about it: the diet of 5:2 or the easy diet of 16:8.

With the 5:2 diet, you limit calorie consumption by up to 700-800 calories for two days a week, while you eat normally for the rest of the weeks. The 16:8 diet is a fast every day, where you only eat in an 8-hour period. For this, fasting when you’re sleeping is the most efficient way to do it: have your last meal at about 8 pm, and the next at 12 pm the next day.

Portion Control:

Do nothing but lower your servings by 10%-20%, that the easiest way to lose weight. Most portions served at restaurants as well as at home are bigger than you should have. To get a handle on your normal portion sizes, take the measuring cups out and work on paring them down. Get instant portion control using tiny bowls, plates, and cups, as mentioned in the bestseller IKIGAI. You won’t feel bad as the food on petite dishware would look sufficient.

Limit Sugar Intake – (Golden tip – Avoid Processed Foods):

Eating lots of added sugar is related to some of the world’s leading illnesses, so if you don’t lose weight, you typically eat high sugar.

Mostly various processed foods contain lots of sugar, so you end up eating plenty of sugar without even knowing it.

Since sugar goes by many names in the ingredient lists, it can be very hard to find out how much sugar a product really contains.

Processed foods typically have a high proportion of added sugars, added fats, and calories.

What’s more, processed foods are designed so you can eat as much as you can. These are much more likely than unprocessed foods to induce addictive-like feeding.
