4 Ways To Lose Weight Without Dieting
1. Time Your Meals
Set a timer for 20 minutes and start eating slowly again. This is one of the best habits for losing weight without having to follow a difficult diet plan. Make each bite count and keep them going until the bell rings. Smaller amounts of paced meals provide considerable pleasure and trigger the body’s satiety hormones. When you eat quickly, your stomach doesn’t have time to signal your brain that it’s full. This results in overeating.
2. Build a Better Slice of Pizza
By substituting veggie toppings for meat on pizza, you may be able to cut 100 calories from your meal. Other slim pizza tips include using low-fat or reduced-fat mozzarella and a thin, bread-like crust cooked with just a little olive oil.
3. Use a Tall, Thin Glass to Sip Smartly
To minimize liquid calories — and your weight — without dieting, choose a tall, slender glass instead of a short, wide tumbler. You will consume 25% to 30% less juice, soda, wine, or any other beverage.
How is this going to work? According to Brian Wansink, PhD, visual signals can deceive us into eating more or less. Even skilled bartenders poured more into a short, wide glass, according to his Cornell University research.
4. Eat at Home
At least five days a week, eat home-cooked meals. According to a Consumer Reports survey, “successful losers” have this as one of their top habits. Sounds intimidating? Cooking may be less difficult than you believe. Pre-chopped lean beef for fajitas, washed lettuce, pre-cut veggies, canned beans, prepared chicken strips, or grilled deli salmon are all examples of quick dishes.
