Are There Any Easy Ways to Lose Weight Quickly?

People are often told that there is no easy way to lose weight, and to a certain extent that is true. To truly lose weight and keep it off, you need to focus on your wellness and wellbeing through improved diet, and improved fitness.


That does not mean, however, that there are not tricks that you can employ when dieting to help you shed the pounds faster. There are certain corners that you can cut and certain little well-kept secrets that you can take advantage of to help you keep on track with your weight loss.


The first one is to reduce the size of your dishes. It’s easy to say reduce portions, but if you have a tiny little bit of food on an enormous plate, you are going to feel hard done by. In addition to this, plate sizes have actually increased in recent years, leading people to pile their plate high with food and eat larger portions than they would otherwise. When reaching for a plate to dish up on, find something a bit smaller, such as a side plate, and steer clear of enormous dinner plates or huge pasta bowls. You can even buy a cheap set of ‘downsized’ dinner plates. Using a smaller knife and fork can also help to trick you into thinking that you are eating more than you are.


Another trick is to switch to drinking sugar-free drinks or even water. Many people consume hundreds of empty calories every day in the form of sugary drinks, without even realising it. These calories don’t even do anything to make your hunger go away, so they are absolutely pointless and are just making your weight loss an uphill battle.


Finally, in whatever exercise you do, go for the gold medal. Push it up one more notch, and take note of how good you feel. If you normally walk, then try power walking. You could even add in a bit of a jog. If you are already quite active, vary the exercise that you are doing to tone new muscles and add some interest and intensity.
