Weight loss can be a difficult process, with success more likely to be found by those willing to remain dedicated throughout the process.
Yet there are ways that you can see massive changes to your body without making drastic changes to your lifestyle.
Here are some weight loss tips that should only take a few minutes daily to complete.
#1: Check social media
No doubt you have a Facebook account, perhaps even an Instagram or Pinterest account too.
Well, if you do spend a couple of minutes each day “liking” around 10 health or fitness pictures/quotes/etc.
It may seem silly but by filling your mind with these positive thoughts you will find that you will remain more motivated to reach your own goals.
Taking a little time to sit back and relax during the day is a great way to relieve stress, which can cause you to overeat.
You can have a seat and have a couple of minutes deep breathing, and you will feel infinitely better about life.
#3: Plan your meals
Before you got to bed at night, you should take a minute or two to think about the meals for the following day.
Doing so will enable you to plan ahead of time, which will help relieve stress thinking about these meals when you are likely busy.
#4: Practice HIIT
Exercise is important for both weight loss and good health, but some of us use the excuse that we are too busy to exercise, when in reality we should make time.
If you lead a busy life you only need a couple of minutes each day for exercise, but you must perform whatever exercise at 100% intensity.
This is where HIIT or High Intensity Interval Training comes in. As you are performing these movements with intensity you could potentially burn off hundreds of calories.
#5: Drink more water
It wont take up much of your time, but a little extra water consumed each day can have a big impact on your weight and overall health.
First off it is completely free of calories, so unlike your usual soft drink choices wont harm your daily calorie allowance.
Water can also help to curb your appetite, and it can flush out toxins from your system too.
#6: Swap coffee for green tea
Many of us love to start the day with a coffee, but green tea maybe a better option for you, especially if weight loss is your goal.
Green tea contains a compound called Epigallocatechin Gallate or EGCG that offers a number of health benefits including improved fat burning.
#7: Take a scent-filled shower
Do you shower daily? Well, if you do you can boost your weight loss efforts by adding a few different scents.
Research has shown that adding scents such as lavender or vanilla can help reduce stress, which in turn can help you to lose weight.
