5 Easy Ways to Lose Weight

More than one-third of adults in the United States are obese. Being overweight or obese can cause a variety of health issues and complications. Even carrying just a few extra pounds can trigger or exacerbate issues like arthritis. Luckily, there are a few easy tweaks you can make to lose weight and feel better.

 Walks with your friends and family is the easiest way to get started with being more physically active.

This staggering statistic shows us that obesity has become all too common. Fortunately it is much easier than we think to get started on shedding unwanted weight.

  • Eat more, not less. Eating less never quite works out. The trick is to change what you’re eating. Protein-rich foods fill you up and satiate your hunger. Rather than chowing down a bowl of pasta, eat a chicken breast or a piece of fish. Vegetables are another great food that you don’t have to limit. Broccoli will fill you up long before those calories add up!
  • Drink more. No, I’m not talking about alcohol! Drinking water also helps to quell hunger pangs. Oftentimes, people mistake being dehydrated for being hungry.
  • Don’t “work out”, have fun. Find an activity that you actually enjoy, and you won’t consider it work. Try a few things before you find what suits you best. Whether it’s going for a swim, a bike ride, or a walk, chances are something will eventually ‘click’.
  • Sleep More. While this may seem counter-intuitive, getting at least 8 hours of sleep has a variety of weight-loss benefits. When you don’t get enough rest, your body craves foods high in fat and sugar. Adequate sleep also replenishes your energy, making it easier to stay physically active.
  • Eat breakfast. You may think that skipping brekfast helps you cut down, but in actuality, breakfast jump-starts the metabolism and keeps you from eating too much later

As you can see, losing weight isn’t always a matter of doing ‘less’. Most of the time, ‘more’ will help you shed a few pounds. Just make sure you’re doing it right. Eating more potato chips isn’t going to help anyone slim down!
