People have always had a huge desire for a slimmer waistline. They are ready to try anything and everything without knowing the side effects. And if you really want to slim down and wear your old jeans again, then you have to follow careful advice.
And you have to keep in mind just one thing; losing fat is all about burning more than you consume.1 pound fat consists of 3,800 calories. So, if you lose 10 pounds in a month, you’ll lose around 1200 calories in a day (this means a good diet and exercise are both necessary).
So let’s check out 8 cool and healthy ways to lose 10 pounds in just one month.
At first, measure your body weight and measure the size of your waist. You have to track both macros and calories rigorously for the first month.
Keep in mind that women need at least 1200 calories in a day while men need 1800 calories. So, never go less than this parameter. Along with that, your protein intake should be at least 30 grams with meals, and while enjoying snacks, it should be at least 10 grams.
Burn Extra Calories
If you are a beginner, make your workout regime short, but frequent and intense. You have to invest at least 20 to 40 minutes 5-6 days a week. For the first 3 to 4 days you can try workouts which are circuit-based and other 2 to 3 days you can try cardio workouts with high intensity.
Drink Enough Water
Everyone knows that drinking at least 8 glass of water in a day is necessary. But very few follow this routine. Water can help speed up your metabolism and also speed up your weight loss. So definitely make this a habit!
Fruit and Veggie Intake
Fruits and vegetables replace high-calorie foods. Additionally, these foods are healthier for your body. Let’s check out which fruits and vegetables you should be eating during this fat burning process.
Grapefruit, peaches, and oranges are all less than 70 calories.
Tomatoes, 3/4 cup of green beans, and 1 cup of broccoli are also equally helpful as these veggies come with only 25 calories.
Also make sure to avoid high calorie foods like cheese, white bread, ice cream, peanut butter, etc.
After a Meal
This one is simple. Take a small walk after finishing your meal. This will help you to digest your good better and give your metabolism a boost.
Practice Periodic Fasting
This one is a cool and practical idea. Men can fast for at least 16 hours and can eat between 8 am to 8 pm.
On the other hand, women can fast for 14 hours and follow the same rule. One low-calorie snack with two small meals is enough for each day. Of course, reduce sugar intake and eat healthy foods only.
High-Calorie Drinks Should Be Avoided
Eliminate high-calorie drinks such as coffee and soda. A regular meal will keep you full for longer, but liquid drinks are not capable of doing that. So, replace them with water or tea. For example, if you really want to drink coffee, you can have coffee with some almond milk and honey.
Keep in mind that you have to eat slowly. This will help you to 1.) Enjoy the food longer and, 2.) Give your stomach enough time to send signals to your brain that you’re full (yep, that’s a thing). That’s why whenever you do eat slow, you find yourself getting fuller sooner.
