Great Natural Ways To Lose Weight Fast Tricks
Losing weight can be difficult
for many people. The most effective weight loss tricks are often simple and
easy to follow suggestions to help you adopt some healthy eating
habits. And natural ways to lose weight are much easier to adopt
and continue for the long haul. There are also easy ways you can get more active and
burn more calories too. When I was writing down all the little
natural tricks you can do to help you lose weight and get into shape, the
movie from 1991, "What About Bob?", comes to mind. I don't know if
you've seen it or even heard about it but it's one of Bill
Murray's funniest films in my opinion. Here's a clip that shows
Bill discovering Baby Steps, similar to what we mention below in
that small things add up quickly and make it easier for anyone to
you haven't seen What About Bob you can probably find it on
Netflix or Youtube, highly recommended if you want to laugh out
loud for a couple hours. OK, back to our weight loss tricks, it's
the same principal that if you make small changes to your eating
habits and get a little more calorie burning activity you will
lose weight and keep it off.
How It Works
The key to good weight loss tactics are that they need to contribute to consuming
and increasing the calorie burn rate for most people. There are easy ways to lose weight without
plan, just using some natural common sense tactics. Healthy eating habits
can help you lose weight without a formal diet program. And be aware that even the word diet can be a problem
for some people. The reason is that you
should really work towards creating healthy eating
habits, not frequent diets to lose weight just to gain it back
again and again.
Weight Loss plans can be helpful to get you jump started on losing weight
but for long term success in controlling your weight you need to
change your current eating habits. Diets are usually a short term
solution for a long term problem. Easy natural weight loss tricks can help
many to keep the weight off over the long haul.
Any good weight loss
program should contribute to the long
term solution. Try to always keep in mind that radical changes are
difficult to maintain, so small changes that don't require so much
effort are usually easier in both the short and long term. Weight
loss and healthy living is not a sprint, it's a marathon. It's OK
to make small changes in your eating habits to slowly
adapt to a better and healthier lifestyle. If you
make it too difficult, especially early in your weight
that can set you up for failure. Try to adapt slowly but
surely to better food choices, a little portion control,
and more exercise.
We've organized the best weight loss
into 3 different categories. Each category can provide ways
to help you lose weight using a few small changes to your
daily eating habits. No radical or craziness, and most are just
common sense tactics to help you slowly but surely lose weight.
We try and update our best tricks often from both visitor suggestions and our own
experience. And it is amazing how someone can suggest something
entirely new that works, so check back often.
Long Term Weight Loss Methods (change eating habits)
When you decide to adopt a
weight loss plan, be sure to include your long range goals. Once you
loose the amount of weight desired, it's just as important to
figure out how to maintain your new weight. So changing your
eating habits will help a lot in long term maintenance efforts.
Although there are many effective weight loss diets, almost all
successful ones abide by these 5 rules.
1. If you fail, don't
abandon your efforts. Never give up.
2. Don't punish yourself, absolute denial is not necessary.
3. Pay attention to calories, make better choices
4. Figure out how to work exercise into your daily routine.
5. Watch out for carbs and sugar, choose the lower fat
Watch what you eat but don't just focus on your diet, try to eat
healthy. Making good choices will work forever, and can greatly
improve your health.
Don't cause yourself undo stress
over eating the wrong thing. Try to change your eating habits
gradually and realize that small changes add up. Don't panic and
punish yourself if you run off the tracks. Just swing back into
your plan and move forward.
The key to any diet plan is that you must burn more calories than you
take in every day or lower your daily calorie consumption. If you really want that dessert, plan on
burning extra calories by extending your exercise.
Leave notes on kitchen appliances, cupboards, pantries. Put
alternatives in the notes to help motivate and give you a choice.
You don't have to have an absolute count of calories, a running
total will work. It's impossible to accurately count restaurant
items anyway, so just use a best guess and move on.
A good goal to start with is one pound per week. Don't set
unrealistic goals and set yourself up for failure. One pound a
week is great over a long period of time and will allow anyone to
achieve their goals. You will probably see the most weight loss in
the first two weeks. And then run into a temporary wall due to the
nature of dieting. And remember that you do not want to starve
yourself since that can send your body into the survival mode
where it won't want to burn calories due to saving since it
doesn't know when it will receive more energy.
Eating Habits That Work!.
Two American drink favorites,
coffee and tea, combined with sugar are damaging to any diet.
Caffeine can increase insulin in your body and reduce burning of
stored fat. Throw in the sugar, dairy products, and flavorings most people add and what little
calories you may burn will be the sugar, not the fat. And when you
put any kind of dairy product in your coffee or tea, it can add up
to 100 calories easy. Try reducing
caffeine by 50%.
Speaking of caffeine and sugar,
most soft drinks are loaded with both. So make sure you count them
in your 50% reduction in caffeine intake. Soda is the poster child
for empty calories along with alcoholic beverages.
Eat slower! Allow time for your stomach to signal you it's full.
Plus most digestive problems can be eliminated by eating slower
and thoroughly chewing your food,
and drinking more water with meals. This is a real problem for
many people, they eat so fast that by the time they realize it,
they are already way too full.
Eating foods without sugar or fat can take away some of the taste
and enjoyment of your meals. One good way to compensate is to use more seasoning like any kind of
pepper, garlic, herbs, and spices. Many spices are very good for
your digestion. Also try lemon juice or vinegar to add a little
Don't skip meals (especially breakfast), burning fat is all about eating too. Five or six
small meals allows you more fat burning time and keeps your
metabolism up. It also helps you eat less since you don't feel so
hungry when you do eat.
Only eat when you're hungry, ignore the clock. Small meals every
3-4 hours can be better for your digestive process. Try to balance
what you eat, snacks that have large amounts of sugar and or salt
taste good but are not very nutritious, commonly referred to as
empty calories (no nutruition).
If you like chocolate, go with the dark varieties rather than the
milk flavored. Dark chocolate has more antioxidant properties and
small amounts are actually good for you. the key words here are
The best portion control trick (especially with restaurants that
serve way too much food) is to eat half and take home the other
half to eat later. And you'll save on your grocery bill too. Given
the amount of food that restaurants serve these days you can easily get two
meals out of one.
Use apple cider vinegar on vegetables, salads, or on anything that
works for you. Apple cider vinegar has
many beneficial effects and is known to prevent high blood
pressure and for breaking down fatty deposits. Some people add a
couple spoonfuls to a glass of water and drink every day.
Sugar is to your weight loss goals as Darth Vader is to the
rebellion. And it is every where you look. Because sugar can make
anything tasted good, food manufacturers add it to everything so
you'll like it and buy more. In the 1970s a new sweetener, corn
fructose, was developed. It too is sugar regardless of the name.
Soda uses corn fructose since it's cheaper and works better in
their process of making soda.
All fat is not bad!
In fact we all need a little fat in our daily diets such
as essential fatty acids, Omegas 3, 6, and 9 are good for
MUFAs, or monounsaturated fats can lower cholesterol,
including LDL cholesterol, the bad kind; while increasing
HDL cholesterol, the good kind.
Nuts such as almonds,
pistachios, walnuts, and peanuts contain MUFAs. Avocados,
olive and canola oils, also contain MUFAs.
Polyunsaturated fats also lower LDL cholesterol. Salmon
and fish oil, as well as soy, safflower, corn, and
sunflower oils have polyunsaturated fats.
Saturated fats increase LDL cholesterol, the bad kind.
Saturated fats can be found in most animal products as
dairy, meat, eggs and some seafood. A few plant foods can
also be high in saturated fats like palm kernel, palm oil,
and coconut oil.
Trans Fat, a product of our scientific community, created
to make food last longer and work better in the food
production process. Hard stick margarine, vegetable
shortening, microwave popcorn, fast food French fries
(although a few large fast food chains have recently
switched to MUFAs) most contain Trans Fats. Recently many
producers of packaged foods have eliminated Trans Fats and
now state so on the labels, which is a very good thing.
Like a glass of wine or an
alcoholic beverage at night with dinner? So do I but it can add
some calories. One way to reduce the caloric intake is to mix
equal parts of wine with water (I have one glass serving but break
it into two glasses - half water - after a day or two you don't
even notice). Same with the hard liquor, use a half of shot in two
instead of one with full shot.
Tricks (burning more calories)
There is a huge debate on the
best time of day to exercise. Some say the morning is the best
since you are less likely to skip the workout and you start
burning fat first thing in the day. Others say that you will burn
more fat if you exercise late in the day or early evening. I say
the best time is when you have the time and will do it.
When doing any kind of exercise, raise your level of activity for
short bursts. This is called Interval Training and is supposed to
be very effective for weight loss and burning more calories. It also
helps raise the cardiovascular effect of any exercise routine. As
an example if you walk for 2 miles every day you can speed up for
a few minutes, then slow down for a few. This does appear to
increase your caloric burn rate.
Any daily exercise is good for losing weight. That being said,
never push yourself beyond any physical limits. If you have any
type of medical condition or are on medication, always check with
your doctor before starting any exercise routines.
Try to work your exercise into
your daily routine, do something you like, do it with others, take
your pet. Do what ever you can to make it enjoyable and something
you look forward to rather than a forced participation.
any exercises out slow and warm up
If you hurt yourself or feel any
pain - that's from anywhere - stop immediately and seek medical
help. Never take a chance with any chest pains or signs of labored
Walking, dancing, jogging,
swimming, bicycling (stationary or real), sport activities like
tennis, basketball, softball, etc. can all help you burn more
calories and not even know you are exercising.
Sitting at a desk all day? Learn how to burn more calories without exercise
during your work day. Get up
and stretch every hour, tap your feet, walk around on your coffee
breaks, park far away from entrances, take the stairs when ever
Another good weight loss trick is
to find some kind of exercise that you enjoy doing. It can be a s
simple as taking walks, or some type of team sport like bowling,
playing tag with your kids (trust me, you'll love it and so will
the kids). Keep it simple and fun but get some kind of activity
going and stay with it.
Here's a list of easy exercises
that almost anyone can do and what the calorie burn rate is for
Hourly Calorie Burn Rate
(not exact but a good rule of thumb)
240 - Bicycling - 5
240 - Walking - 2 mph
275 - Swimming - 75
yds lap per minute
320 - Walking - 5 mph

contribute to better health and eating habits. Little changes, one at a time, can make a
