22 One Minute Tricks To Lose Weight



Try The Following:

  • Do stuff while you are on the phone: do the dishes, water the plants, dust the house. Keep moving!
  • Make yourself a fruit-cocktail with your favorite fresh juice and mix it with sparkling mineral water. This way you save about 85 calories per glass.
  • Chew gum! Research revealed an increase of metabolism of 20% in people that chew (sugar-free) gum all day.
  • Drink a cup of green tea before taking a walk. Green tea frees fatty acids, in order to burn fat more easily. The Polyphenols, in combination with the caffeine in green tea, will make you burn more calories.
  • Study the ingredients of candy more carefully. If you see that a Mars bar or a bag of M&Ms contain easily 70 kcalories per ounce (220 cal/100 grams) and you multiply that with the weight of the candy bar, chances are you won’t be tempted.
  • Eat out less often.
  • Put olive oil on your sandwiches instead of butter or margarine.
  • Instead of mayonnaise use 1/2 spoon of Balsamico, 1/2 a spoon of olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon of mustard.
  • Have your blood tested: one on every 12 women has a low thyroid function resulting in slower metabolism.
  • Always have a bottle of water in reach, and use it all day. If your body does not hold the right amount of water, your metabolism slows down 3%.
  • Drink no-fat milk. This will fill your stomach with carbohydrates and decreases your appetite.
  • Cut your salad in larger pieces. You will chew more and longer, resulting in eating less of the main course.
  • Call a friend to ward off loneliness or boredom instead of eating a box of chocolates.
  • Don’t sit still for longer than 5 minutes. By wiggling and walking up and down you can burn up to 700 calories a day!
  • Buy food in small quantities.
  • Use the right amount of spaghetti: one dollar diameter a person.
  • Have a mirror present when you eat sweets. You will eat 50% less!
  • Wrap all fatty foods (pizza, pork chops, French fries) in kitchen paper before serving.
  • Spice up your meals. You will eat less.
  • Write down what you eat during the day, and get more control over your eating habits.
  • Don’t use “light” foods. The satisfaction you get from food is linked to its weight, not the amount of fat or calories it contains. Better stick to: oranges, strawberries, melon, spinach or broccoli to lose weight.
  • Eat fish instead of meat. Even the greasiest fish contains less calories than the leanest meat. Salmon, Tuna, mackerel etc. contain omega 3, which increases your metabolism.
