5 Ways to Look Slimmer in 15 Minutes
Truth is, if you want to slim down, you need to eat less and move more. Do that and, depending on your diligence, you could start seeing results in a matter of days. What’s that, you say? You need to look slimmer today? Well, luckily for you, perception is reality, and there are a number of things you can do between now and then to alter the harsh reality that beer, ribs and ice cream taste good (and that it’s a little too hot/cold/rainy to be running outside right now). And to keep getting lean all day, every day, check out our exclusive report on the 30 Best Ways to Boost Your Metabolism After 30!
1 Get pumped
If you’re a guy, chances are that the extra weight you’re carrying is around your middle. Although you can’t get rid of that flubber in 15 minutes, you can use that time to slightly increase the size of other parts of your body so that your waist appears smaller in comparison. It’s what bodybuilders call “getting a pump.” One of the best ways to do this is to bang out some push-ups. Perfectly executed push-ups work several body parts, but in particular, engorging your chest and shoulder muscles with blood will make you seem tighter in the middle. Remember: Muscles are 70% water, so to prolong that pump, hydrate before, during and after your drills.
2 Stand up straight
Yes, it’s as simple as that. Experts suggest that bad posture can make someone look ten pounds heavier than they actually are. When you’re slumped over, you lose inches in height, so you’re scrunching your body mass toward your midsection. The result? You look shorter and wider. So stand tall! And while you’re standing tall, pull your shoulders back. This will get your shoulder-weight ratio closer to 1:6 — also called the Adonis Ratio. Studies have revealed that women are most attracted to men with that triangular torso proportion. It’ll make anything you’re wearing look sharper. Make sure you own the 15 Items Every Man Should Have in His Closet — we’ve picked the best brands from head to toe!
3 Empty your pockets
For the last 12 to 15 years, pants have been getting slimmer. At the same time, phones have been wider, longer and flatter. While our pants and phones have been evolving in diametrically opposed ways, it was decided that the belt-mounted phone holster would be embraced by precisely no one. The upshot: We’re walking around with packed pockets that make the waist look much wider than it is. Your move? Pare down to the absolute essentials. Sign up for Apple Pay, replace your bulky wallet with a sleek stainless-steel clip for your essential cards, take seldom-used keys off your ring, and stash your phone in the inside pocket of your jacket when you’re wearing one. When you’re not, hold your phone in your hand. (It’s there most of the time anyway.)
4 Pull your damn pants up
As pants have become more streamlined, the rise — the distance between the middle of the crotch seam to the top of the waistband — has shortened. Rise is important because it determines where your pants sit on your body, which in turn creates your perceived waistline. Low-rise pants look great — provided you’re in the minority of men sporting less than 8% body fat. If you’re rocking even a modest amount of chub, they become the plinth upon which you display your muffin top to the world. Wear your pants so that the waistband lives up to its name and sits at your natural waist. While you’re at it, be sure you’re following the 25 New Rules of Office Style!
5 Untuck your shirt
Use your judgment — are you in an environment in which wearing your shirt untucked is acceptable? If it is, get your shirt out of your pants. Tucking will being the shirt closer to your frame, bringing attention to a belly and other problem areas. So prevent your shirt from clinging to your man boobs like grim death. It’ll make your torso look longer.
What’s Causing My Belly Bulge, and How Do I Treat It?
Bloating is the feeling of pressure or swelling in the stomach. The most common causes are trapped gas or eating too much in a short time. The sensation of bloating can cause abdominal distention, which is a visible swelling or extension of your belly.
Distention happens when the sensation of being bloated triggers your brain to react by moving your diaphragm down and relaxing your abdominal wall muscles.
Along with gassiness and eating too much, other common causes of bloating include:
- irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- certain gynecological conditions, such as ovarian cysts
- bacterial infections
- gastroparesis, which causes delayed stomach emptying
Adrenal stress fat
Stress is a natural response to a perceived threat. When you’re faced with a threat, a combination of nerve and hormonal signals tells your adrenal glands to release adrenaline, cortisol, and other stress hormones.
Stress is usually short-lived, and your body returns to normal. When faced with ongoing stress, your body remains in this state. There is evidence that chronic stress increases abdominal fat and cravings for foods that cause abdominal obesity.
Your body goes through a number of changes during pregnancy, and a growing belly is the most obvious one. Even though you lose about 13 pounds when you give birth, it’s likely that you gained more than that during your pregnancy.
Your belly bulge may also be the result of fluid retention or abdominal separation (diastasis recti).
Abdominal separation may occur during or after pregnancy. It happens when your growing uterus causes the two long muscles that run parallel in your abdomen to separate from each other.
Menopausal hormonal belly bulge
Weight gain is a common effect of menopause. The hormonal changes that contribute to weight gain actually begin during perimenopause, a few years before menopause.
Menopausal weight gain primarily affects the abdomen. Factors that contribute to belly fat at this stage of life include:
- fluctuations in hormones such as estrogen
- insulin resistance
- decreased muscle mass
- sleep deprivation
Though studies haven’t found a link between beer and belly girth, there are reasons why drinking beer might give you a big belly. The more you drink, the more calories you consume, which could contribute to weight gain.
Beer is made with hops, and hops contain phytoestrogens, which are plant compounds that have similar effects to the female sex hormone estrogen. Though it hasn’t been proven, there is speculation that the phytoestrogens in beer change the way your body stores belly fat.
Food intolerance, which is not to be confused with food allergy, is difficulty in digesting certain foods. It is also called food sensitivity. It’s become much more common in recent years and affects up to an estimated 20 percent of the world’s population.
Food intolerance can cause bloating after you eat certain foods. Along with the sensation of bloating and a distended abdomen, you might have other symptoms like gas, stomach pain, and diarrhea.
Dairy, gluten, and caffeine are common food intolerances.
Common weight gain
Though weight gain can be spread throughout your body, some people are more prone to gaining belly weight than others. Weight gain is usually the result of consuming more calories than you burn through regular bodily functions and physical activity.
Sleep deprivation and stress have also been linked to overeating and weight gain.
10 Snacks That Cause Your Face to Bloat — and 5 Foods to Eat Instead
Fortunately, there are certain food groups that can actually help reduce the occurrence of bloating in both your midsection and, in turn, your face, Garcia says.
Here’s what you can snack on at night, instead.
1. Snack on fruits and vegetables
Fruits and vegetables are known to be some of the highest sources of fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals — while at the same time being low in fat and sodium.
Many fruits and veggies also have a high-water content, which assists your body in staying well-hydrated and decreasing bloat.
So the next time you feel like having a late-night snack:
Opt for a bowl of berries or sliced red bell pepper with guacamole instead of cake.
The fiber will help you feel fuller faster so you won’t overeat, which could happen when it comes to processed snacks or desserts.
Loading up on fruits and vegetables can also increase water intake, as the majority of them are made up of water. This also aids in decreasing inflammation and bloat.
2. Eat yogurt, instead of ice cream for dessert
Yes, even though other dairy sources like milk and cheese are known to cause bloating, yogurt might actually have the opposite effect.
By choosing a yogurt that’s low in added sugar and contains live, active cultures — which indicate that it contains effective probiotics — you can help reduce the frequency of bloating and uncomfortable symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
Greek yogurt with mixed berries is an excellent snack choice to help prevent bloating and puffiness.
3. Try fermented foods and beverages
Just like many yogurts out there, fermented foods and beverages have been shown to promote good bacteria or probiotics in your gut.
The good bacteria could help with bloating — and by reducing overall bloating, this might help with facial swelling.
Examples of these foods include:
- kefir, a cultured dairy product similar to yogurt
- fermented tea
4. Stick to whole grains, instead of processed foods
Whole grains such as whole-wheat bread and rice alternatives like quinoa and amaranth are high in vitamins, minerals, and fiber, unlike their refined counterparts like white bread and pasta.
So if toast is one of your go-to breakfast or snack choices, opt for a sprouted grain bread like Ezekiel bread instead of plain white.
Quinoa and amaranth — which can be enjoyed as a substitute for oats or a side dish with dinner — are also high in protein and antioxidants.
When you include nutrient-dense, fibrous carbs over refined, sugary carbs, it can help combat inflammation and thus keep facial puffiness at bay.
5. Stay hydrated
While water isn’t technically something you eat, just staying hydrated throughout the day and night can help to reduce water retention, stomach bloating, and the chance of facial puffiness as well.
The Institute of Medicine recommends that adults consume 72 to 104 ounces of water a day in total from food, other beverages, and water itself.
Some easy ways to get this are to carry a 16- to 32-ounce bottle of water and refill it as needed, and also to only order water to drink when dining out (which will also save you money as an added bonus).
13 Weird Reasons Your Face Looks Puffy
When it comes to looking fresh and rested, there’s usually only one thing that stands in your way — puffiness. And I’m not talking about PMS-style stomach bloating, but the oh-so-lovely swelling of your face and eyes. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then lucky you.
For everyone else, you’ll probably agree with me that a puffy face is super annoying. I mean, what causes it? I’ve always wondered why I wake up with bags under my eyes, and cheeks that that look like they’ve been stung by bees. (Yes, it really can be that bad.)
Well, as it turns out, there are about 101 factors that can cause facial swelling. Some of them are kind of scary, while others will make you sigh with their obviousness. But regardless of the cause, here’s what facial swelling is — the buildup of fluid in the tissues of the face, as noted in an article by the U.S. National Library of Medicine. It seems so benign (and it usually is), and yet still so very annoying.
The cure often lies in the cause, so discovering that will be up to you. Start yourself off by checking out some of these reasons why your face looks puffy.
1. You Just Woke Up
Are you, like me, greeted each morning with the puffiest of puffy faces? The swollen face starting back at you in the bathroom mirror can be caused by a number of factors, including a bad night’s sleep, drinking the night before, and even hormone fluctuations, noted Jennifer Nelson on the health blog MNN.com. It’s not cute, but usually nothing to worry about.
2. Your Allergies Are Acting Up
Pollen, dust, animal dander — it’s all swirling around endlessly, and it can turn you into an allergic mess. Besides the usual sneezing and watery eyes, allergens can also lead to something called “allergy face.” Symptoms include swollen eyes, flaky skin, puffiness, and chapped lips from breathing through your mouth, noted Jaimie Dalessio on EverydayHealth.com.
3. Your Shower Is Too Steamy
Ever get out of the shower and look like a red, puffy version of your former self? I do this all the time, mostly because there is nothing more relaxing than standing in a nice, steamy shower. But too hot water isn’t actually not that great for you when it comes to de-puffing. Cool water is definitely best, so try to keep the water temp at less than 110 degrees.
4. You Have A Sinus Infection
Sinusitis can cause all sorts of problems, but one symptom is definitely a puffy, congested face. According to WebMD.com, sinusitis is the inflammation and swelling of your sinuses, aka the pockets in your face that are normally filled with air. When you’re sick with a cold, these pockets become blocked and filled with fluid, and that can lead to bacteria overgrowth and then an infection. Cue a puffy, achey face.
5. You’re Allergic To Your Pillows
Your blankets and pillows can cause you to wake up the aforementioned morning puffiness. “Do you have feathery pillows or a down comforter? If so, you might want to consider switching up your bedding, as the feathers could actually be what’s making you bleary-eyed in the morning,” suggested Jaime Richards on Prevention.
6. You Have Something Called “Moon Facies”
OK, so this one is a bit tricky, as there are many different explanations behind it. But there’s a condition called “moon facies” that can cause the face to gradually become round, full, or puffy, according to WebMD. It’s thought that a high release of hormones, namely cortisol, is to blame. If this describes you, then definitely get checked out by a doctor.
7. You Have Conjunctivitis
Feeling extra puffy (and itchy) around the eye area? Then pink eye, or conjunctivitis, may be to the culprit. According to the CDC, “It is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the thin, clear tissue that lines the inside of the eyelid and the white part of the eyeball. This inflammation makes blood vessels more visible and gives the eye a pink or reddish color.” The condition is kind of gross, but highly treatable.
8. You Have Bags Under Your Eyes
Ah yes, baggy eyes. These are an all-too-familiar affliction for the tired, overworked, and stressed among us. Such bagginess is caused by a mild swelling, and can get worse as you age, according to the Mayo Clinic. Something to look forward to, right?
9. You’re Having An Allergic Reaction
An allergic reaction can cause your face to swell up, and can be brought on by any number of things (peanut allergies, bee strings, etc.). The swelling may be accompanied by hives, itching, and rashes, according to an article from the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Such reactions can quickly get out of hand, be sure to get yourself some medical attention ASAP.
10. You Had One Too Many Salty Snacks
If you spent the evening lying in bed with a big bag of chips, then you may very well wake up with a bad case of puffiness. The excessive sodium in these snacks can cause your body to hold onto extra fluid in an attempt to dilute the salt, making you look puffier than usual, according to Megan Smith on Livestrong.com.
11. You Had A Bit Too Much To Drink
We all know that too much alcohol dehydrates the body, and that’s what make hangovers so terrible. The same dehydration can also cause the body to retain fluids, making you look swollen the next morning.
12. You Triggered An Allergy By Exercising
Wait, what? I had never heard of this, but turns out an exercise-induced allergic reaction is definitely a thing. According to J.M. Andrews on Livestrong.com, “You may trigger an exercise-induced allergic reaction by eating an allergy-inducing food a couple of hours prior to exercising … Common triggers include tree nuts, shellfish and fish.”
13. Your Hormones Are Going Crazy
PMS seems to be the reason for every annoying bodily problem, and now you can add your puffy face to the list as well. That’s because PMS can lead to water retention, which, as we know, can lead to puffiness. According to the Mayo Clinic, hormonal changes seem to play a major role, as well as heredity, and a craving-induced diet of too much salt.
While most of these aren’t a big deal, sometimes a puffy face can be a sign of a medical problem. Be sure total to your doctor.

5 ways to get rid of a puffy face: Here is everything you need to know
The worst thing you can ever wake up to in the morning is a puffy, swollen face. From stress, water retention to allergies, there are various reasons, which can cause one’s face to be puffed up. And when one’s face is swollen, they usually end up in a situation where they avoid looking at themselves in the mirror. This aggravates the stress. However, the good news is that puffy face is not permanent, unless it’s a medical condition. So, here is your guide on how to get rid of a swollen face, the natural way.
The notion that drinking lots of water can lead to a bloated face is a myth. In fact, it’s the other way around, dehydration and lack of adequate water intake can cause your face to be bloated. Dehydration can cause blood vessels to enlarge that can lead to water retention, especially in the face causing it to be puffy.
One of the main reasons for your face to swell up is the high content of salt in the body. Salt tends to retain water in the body that causes puffiness. Avoid carbonated drinks and always look for the level of sodium content in packaged products. 2300 mg or less is enough sodium for the day, for 50 years old and below and 1500 mg for people above 50 years old.
Increase fiber intake
Increase fiber in your diet if you want to prevent your face from getting bloated. Have papaya as it helps to keep your stomach and intestines healthy, which in turn keeps your face lean. Also have fruits containing Vitamin C, beta-carotene and antioxidants, that prevent water retention in the skin. These also help to renew the skin and give it a bright glow.
Sweat it out
Work out to lose the puffiness. Cardio and weight training will help you improve blood circulation and open up the pores. Combine this with a balanced diet and you can shed weight off your face too. You can also do exercises that target your double chin and jawline.
Never underestimate the power of a good massage to help you rid of facial puffiness. Lubricate your face with moisturizer or a facial massage oil. Massage your entire face lightly with your fingers. This process will help you push down excessive fluid in your face to lymph nodes in the neck.

Quick Weight Loss Diet Guide
Gas-X is the brand name for an over-the-counter medication used to treat excessive gas in the stomach. Even though this medication is effective, safe and used by many people, additional information will enable better understanding of how it works and any potential side effects.
Symptoms and Causes
The symptoms of too much gastrointestinal gas are quite well known—bloating, pressure, feeling too full, and subsequent abdominal pain, flatulence and belching. There are several reasons why excess gas becomes trapped, but the most common causes are certain foods, such as beans and cabbage, eating too quickly, swallowing air and carbonated drinks. Certain medical conditions can also lead to trapped gas. The most common are chronic indigestion, ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome and diverticulosis.
How Gas-X Works
The active ingredient in Gas-X is simethicone. It is considered to be an “anti-foaming” agent that works by decreasing the surface tension of the many gas bubbles causing the uncomfortable symptoms. Simethicone does not reduce the amount—or prevent the formation—of gas. It works by increasing the speed with which the gas leaves the body.
What does decreasing surface tension have to do with expelling gas more quickly? Surface tension refers to the fact that molecules attract one another—pulling each one toward the other—and this creates tension. This tension is stronger in the center where there are more molecules pulling toward one another from all sides. Toward the surface, this “pull” results in shrinking the surface area and that creates the surface tension. When simethicone reduces the surface tension of gas bubbles, it is easier for them to be expelled.
Simethicone works in the stomach to disperse trapped gas. It is not absorbed into the blood so it is considered to be very safe. No significant side effects have been reported, but it is possible that Gas-X may cause mild diarrhea and heartburn. On the very rare chance that you are allergic to this medication, be sure to immediately seek professional help. The typical symptoms of a serious allergic reaction are rash, itching, swelling, dizziness and breathing.
The dosage directions on the package should always be strictly followed. Do not take other simethicone containing medications at the same time as Gas-X without first talking to your physician. If you are pregnant, have liver or kidney disease, or any other illness it is also advisable to consult a physician before taking even such a safe medication to be sure it won’t interact with other medications you may be taking.

Sean Cunningham 1. CUT CARBS AND DAIRY
One look at low-carb poster girl Jennifer Aniston is proof that this advice works. “Complex carbohydrates cause the body to hold water, and dairy is slow to digest; both can lead to bloat,” explains Los Angeles nutritionist Kimberly Snyder.
2. EAT STRATEGICALLY
Breakfast: watermelon. Lunch: a salad of leafy greens, cucumber, asparagus, celery, and chicken with a light dressing of lemon juice, apple-cider vinegar, and a dash of olive oil. Dinner: a repeat of lunch. Preparty snack: celery with a tablespoon of almond butter. “Fruits and vegetables with a high water content will fill you up and help flush water out,” says Snyder.
3. SOAK IN EPSOM SALTS
Add one cup to a bath and lie there for 15 minutes. “It will draw water out of your cells—kind of like reverse osmosis,” says New York dermatologist Francesca Fusco.
4. NIX THE GUM
Avoid sugar-free gum. “You swallow air when you chew, creating gas, and the body can’t digest the artificial sweeteners in gum, so you attract and retain water,” says Los Angeles dermatologist Jessica Wu. Also, the repetitive movements build up your jaw muscles, so your face looks wider, she says.
5. CONSIDER A SUPPLEMENT
“A blend of taurine, a natural amino acid, and vitamin B6 will help you lose water weight without losing essential electrolytes,” claims Beverly Hills endocrinologist Eva Cwynar, who suggests an Abadi Ease Water Retention ($24) capsule three times a day.
6. DRINK TO DEBLOAT
Load up on water, and avoid anything with fizz, as the bubbles will distend your belly. “Plus, studies show diet soda causes cravings,” warns Snyder. Afternoon slump? Crack open a cranberry kombucha. “It’s a mild appetite suppressant. The cranberry is a diuretic, and the probiotics promote digestion for a flatter belly,” says Snyder.
7. CAFFEINATE YOUR BODY
A spiked body serum or gel will reduce puffiness. “The caffeine is absorbed through the skin and acts as a mild diuretic,” says Fusco. “You should see a difference in a few hours.” Try Rodial Crash Diet ($90).
8. ENHANCE YOUR BONE STRUCTURE
Blend cream bronzer under your jawline and cheekbones. “It makes your face look more angular,” says makeup artist Matin. Pull your hair up into a high ponytail or half updo to give your face an instant lift, suggests Wu.
9. BOOK AN AIRBRUSH TAN
A tan makes you look leaner, but strategic shading takes it up a notch. “Ask for a little extra misting on triceps and inner and outer legs to visually narrow them,” recommends Los Angeles tanning pro Kelsey Jones.
10. PERFECT YOUR POSTURE
Slumpy equals dumpy. Los Angeles fitness pro Anna Rahe’s tip: Standing, lift your butt as you shift your weight to your heels. Next, bring your rib cage up so your shoulders move back and open. Finally, gently draw the muscles running from your navel to your pubic bone back, in, and down. “You’ll look taller and thinner,” she promises.

Want to go to sleep and wake up slimmer? Believe it or not there are ways in which you can achieve just that.
Want to go to sleep and wake up slimmer? Believe it or not there are ways in which you can achieve just that.
For those wanting to shed some weight, they can dream of the day they wake up feeling slimmer than the day before. While overnight miracles are a rarity, (except for the tooth fairy and Santa, of course) there are ways to make this dream a reality. Follow these 10 tips to help you wake up slimmer after your slumber.
Avoid late night nibbles
Having a cheeky nibble and treat before bed is common for most people, but eating late at night should be avoided if you’re hoping to wake up a couple of pounds lighter the next morning. Studies have shown that eating late at night can cause weight gain as the food eaten before bed is generally stored instead of burnt off.
By all means, you should not go to bed starving as your body need calories throughout the night, but instead you should aim for around 100-200 calories after dinner, just not immediately before bed.
One US study found that mice that ate throughout the day and night had 70 per cent more fatty deposits than the mice who only ate at set times. Not only that, giving your digestive organs more to process when they should be resting can lead to bloating and the feelings of heaviness and stodginess the following day. Instead try enjoying a lighter, healthier snack an hour or so before bed, allowing your stomach time to properly digest the food, is ideal to satisfy hunger but ensure food is not stored as fat overnight.
Choose slimming foods
Utilising when you eat can be a major factor for sleep and weight loss, but picking the right food will inevitably affect how and whether food is stored as energy or fat throughout the night. Enjoying a light and easily-digestible dish for your evening meal as opposed to rich or stodgy foods, particularly fats and carbs, could go a long way in helping you achieve slenderness overnight.
Avoid complex carbohydrates and red meat, particularly steak, as well as high saturated fat foods and low GI carbs, as these are notoriously harder for the body to digest. Opt instead for simple and plain foods such as salmon and chicken, spinach, sweet potato, melon for you evening foods.
Avoiding high fat and sugary foods before bed will not only prevent the storage of food as fat, but will also help your sleep…
Avoiding these high fat and sugary foods before bed will not only prevent the storage of food as fat, but will also help your sleep, further promoting your much needed rest. These foods release energy quickly which can increase your blood sugar, keeping you awake and encouraging your body to store fat. Controlling your portion sizes is also key for assisting weight loss through the night, following the old adage, ‘eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper’, can change the rate of your weight loss.
Some people will advise against exercise in the evening as it can potentially disrupt sleep if you haven’t relaxed properly afterward, but fitting in a quick exercise session can benefit your metabolism greatly. A half hour workout can do a world of good in countless ways; it can lift your mood due to the release of endorphins, clear you mind of stress and, most importantly, boost your chance of waking up slimmer.
Psychologically, exercise makes you feel fitter and slimmer giving you the confidence boost you need when it comes to your body shape. But more importantly exercise can improve digestion; boosting blood flow to leave you bloat-free and slimmer the following morning.
Exercise also engages your metabolism, requiring more fuel burnt for energy, and exercising in the evening will result in your metabolism to continue burning through your sleep, using up your fat stores without even having to move, how efficient.
Before sleep, it is important to get some much deserved rest, and television is a common form of winding down. While you’re indulging in your evening TV ritual, make more use of this ‘me time’ by incorporating some low key exercises. Watching TV whilst doing some low intensity workouts is ideal before bed as your mind is distracted by whatever show you have chosen, yet your muscles and metabolism can feel the rewards of any form of exercise.
Most people also neglect the importance of non-cardio exercises and so training your muscles can help tone and shape specific areas of the body that may get you down. Doing some basic toning exercises on carpet or an exercise mat, TV exercise can improve not only muscles but your mental perception, making you feel better and more confident about your body the next day. This little boost, although short and sweet, may help you feel and look that little bit more tucked and toned the following day.
If you’re heading to the gym, the pool or out for a run, aim to push yourself that little bit harder than you normally would. Challenging your stamina and strength will not only give you an adrenaline high, but you’ll also burn more calories and challenge your muscles in new ways, helping you tone up and feel slimmer. This sudden increase of energy burnt will speed up your metabolism and encourage it to keep burning for longer, particularly through the night.
Working out more frequently at a higher intensity will help you see results more quickly…
Working out more frequently at a higher intensity will help you see results more quickly, it is generally known that it takes 4 weeks of exercise for you to see a change in your body and 12 weeks for anyone else. If you increase your exercise and push yourself this time will shorten, making you feel fabulous sooner.
If hitting the gym or going out for a job isn’t ideal to your schedule, then finding useful tricks to burn the additional calories without being bogged down by fitting in a workout can be a beneficial extra to your day. Turning up your favourite tunes or switching on the music channels and dancing to your heart’s content can be a fun but effective way to feel better and shed some weight.
Letting loose in your living room to your favourite hits will free inhibitions while burning the calories too. Some upbeat tunes to get the heart pumping and the endorphins flowing is the perfect way to relax, have fun and fit in a bit of exercise without the daunting feelings of having to go the gym. You can wake up the next day feeling refreshed and lighter, a very good way to start the day.
Set a Routine
Most people will stay up late watching the next episode of their favourite programme or surfing the web until they get bored, but these relatively unimportant activities can cut into your sleep time, which is vitally important for weight loss. The University of Chicago studied two groups of people on the same diet, the ones who received around 8 hours of sleep actually burned more fat than those who get fewer winks.
If you set a pre-bed routine and follow it regularly, this will not only prepare your body for a more efficient slumber, but will ensure that your getting around the recommended eight hours, aiding weight loss and fat burn.
Banish the booze
After a long day it is always nice to relax with a glass of wine or a refreshing beer, but alcohol is notorious for bloating and gas due to it’s fizzy nature, making you feel tubby and larger than you are. Not to mention, alcohol isn’t renowned for its calorie free nature assisting your diet.
Alcohol typically contains high amounts of calories and sugar, damaging to any diet, and particularly when consuming sweeter drinks and heavy beers later in the evening, these calories typically won’t be burnt off through the night, encouraging you to store the pounds and feel tubbier in the morning. Containing seven calories (29 kilojoules) per gram, alcohol is not kind on your waistline, and so it is best to give the late night tipple a wide berth when trying to lose weight.
We’ve all woken up in the early hours of the morning gasping for a drink, but can’t bear the thought of emerging from our beds in the dark to get a glass of water. But ensuring you’re hydrated before bed and having water available during and after your sleep, can be a beneficial technique for weight loss.
Keeping hydrated can prevent water retention and bloating typically found when lacking fluids, and is a vital factor for a number of basic functions in every area of the body. Adding to your exercise performance, health and weight loss, water is key and keeping yourself hydrated is essential to ensure your body performs efficiently aiding how quickly you can lose weight.
Herbal teas such as green, peppermint, chamomile and dandelion are the perfect beverages for achieving that all-important slim feeling as they are hydrating and aid digestion, whilst also as a relaxing aid before bed, helping you unwind and get to sleep quickly. Aim for 6-8 cups of herbal tea or water throughout the day and you’ll feel lighter come morning. Avoiding carbonated drinks, alcohol and caffeine is ideal before bed as these drinks will typically keep you awake or pile on the pounds through the night.
As we all know, the mind is a powerful thing, and making sure your mental balance is not skewed can be almost as important as ensuring you body’s balance is correct. Some believe that slimness can be a state of mind rather than a physical state, so ‘thinking thin’ can be more effective than you would anticipate.
Many studies have shown that if you start believing that you’re losing weight, the results will appear more quickly. Stress is often linked with being overweight, leading to emotional eating and an increase of the hormone ghrelin that stimulates appetite, so why not give relaxation techniques a try.
Yoga or meditation are perfect options to aid flexibility, decrease heart rate and help relaxation before bed. Calming the mind and focussing on your breathing can help center your thoughts, taking your mind away from the inevitable troubles life can bring, and perhaps even improve your perceptions of weight and your body.
