SOMETIMES THE SIMPLEST REMEDIES REALLY ARE THE BEST.
Below are 5 simple ways to lose weight eating apples, dancing in the kitchen, and getting some morning sun.
If you’re consistent enough, it can even lead you to lose up to 20 pounds in just 14 days, just like it did for my friend Josie who used to weigh over 200 pounds. She lost 10 pounds in the first 7 days of consistently putting these tips to work. And ended up losing 51 pounds in the next couple of months!
And the best part of all this is – there is no crazy or weird behavior required.
Let’s get started.
1. Don’t clear the table
Don’t tell your mom, but we’re giving you official permission to make a mess. As you eat, leave the candy wrappers, fruit peels, nutshells, and other scraps on the table. According to a study published in the journal Appetite in 2011, people who kept a bowl of pistachio shells on their desks consumed significantly fewer calories than those who periodically threw out the shells. Seeing the shells (or other discarded items) can serve as a visual cue, reminding you of exactly how much you’ve eaten and to stop eating when you’re full.
2. Curtail your cocktails
Happy hour isn’t so happy when you consider the toll it takes on your waistline, says Fiola Sowemimo, MD, who practices internal and bariatric medicine in Freehold, New Jersey. Booze is one of the biggest factors in weight gain, especially if you’re drinking alcohol combined with sugary mixers, like margaritas or rum and Coke. “One of the top tips I give to my patients looking to lose weight is to avoid excess alcohol,” she says.
3. Ditch the mood lighting
Low lighting may be ideal for a romantic dinner, but you should turn up the lights if you’re watching your waistline, according to a study published in the Journal of Marketing Research in 2016. Diners who ate in well-lit dining areas were 16 to 24 percent more likely to order healthy foods, the researchers found.
4. Clean out your medicine cabinet
First, it probably needs to be cleaned out anyhow. (See the baby ibuprofen you got for your baby…who’s now 12.) Second, some meds for common conditions, like high blood pressure, diabetes, and depression, can cause weight gain or make it harder for you to lose excess weight, Dr. Sowemimo says.
“All this by a 10-second morning trigger?” I asked.
I met an old friend for lunch last month and I was super impressed with how good she looked.
She said, “It’s not so much about the morning trigger, but more about how they help raise your body’s low core temperature to dramatically increase your fat-burning metabolism and improve your health and appearance.”
Even though I was skeptical, I’ve been struggling with my weight over the last few years, so I gave it a shot and watched the same video she did.
Well, it’s only a couple of weeks later and you know what they say about how “you can’t transform your body overnight”…
They’re right – it actually took me 19 days to lose 24 pounds. Now it’s my girlfriends asking ME what I’m doing differently
