Have You Tried Everything To Lose 20 Pounds Quickly?
I am sick of going to the gym and running on the treadmill everyday for an hour without any evident results. It’s almost Christmas time this year and I have yet to lose the Christmas fat from last year. So how exactly can we lose 20 pounds quickly?
It seemed like I had tried everything – I ate less, avoided rice, I went for long jogs, skipped the soda or any sugary drinks, got a lot of sleep, and even made my phone wallpaper of a skinny girl saying “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” Yet my jeans never felt any less tight. My fitted tops reached the back of my closet, and I almost believed I would never see my beautiful body hugging dresses on my bedroom floor after a night out. Too bad for the excess fats on my body; I am a fighter, and I will not quit until those stubborn 20 pounds leave my body permanently.
After countless google searches and doctor appointments to make sure my weight loss hindrance is not an internal health problem, I have realized that I have been doing so many things wrong. So here are a few Psychological and physical changes you can do everyday that are guaranteed to get the number on that weighing scale to finally go down.
10 Easy-To-Follow Tips To Lose 20 Pounds Quickly
#1. Throw out the junk
Those packet of chips and bags of chocolates in your pantry belong anywhere but your pantry. Take them out, maybe even do a good deed and give them to someone hungry, and save yourself the temptation of eating junk food.
#2. Drink water before meals
If you drink at least 500 millilitres of water 30 minutes before your meal, you will less likely overeat because the water fills your stomach up and gives your body the impression that it is full before even eating your meal.
#3. Take your time while eating
It takes about 20 minutes for our brain to realize that we are full. The slower you eat, the more time your brain will have to signal your body that you are already full and you do not need that second serving.
#4. You do not need sugar
Just because you are craving for something sweet, does not mean you have to fall back to cakes and ice cream. There are plenty of healthier sweet options that you may take. Have fresh fruits or fruit juices without the sugar. Processed sugar increases the triglycerides in your blood, accumulating more fat.
Cleansing is a strategy that allows your body rid itself of toxins. Emptying your bowel regularly is not only healthy but will help you lose some weight as well. Eat foods that will help you clear your stomach faster such as fibrous fruits and vegetables, wheat, and corn.
Another way to cleanse your gut is to use Oregano. Watch the short video below to learn how to use it:
Cardio is very important when you want to shed the pounds off. You have to get that heart beating faster to burn more fat. Don’t have time to spend a whole hour at the park jogging? Then simply jog for 20 minutes a day or opt to walk to nearby places rather than riding a car.
#7. Always remain full
Portion your food into smaller plates and bowls and eat it constantly throughout the day. Have smaller and more meals rather than 2-3 big meals a day. If you are constantly full throughout the day with your portioned and divided meal, you are less likely to snack on junk food or consume unnecessary calories.
#8. Make it harder to reach for junk food
If you do not buy the unhealthy food from the grocery and you are left with all the healthier options at home, you will save yourself from bringing on to junk food. Keep all your favorite junk food away from you, making it harder to get them when you are hungry, and keep all the healthy food you near you.
#9. Avoid restaurants and take outs
Food in the restaurants are not delicious for no reason; they are laced with fat and excess calories that you do not need (and can not afford) in order to lose weight quickly. Stick to cooking at home without oil or eating raw vegetables and fruits which makes you full even faster as well, and it is much cheaper.
#10. Love yourself
Don’t fret too much about the excess pounds. Accept yourself for who you are right now and be willing to make healthy lifestyle changes because you know you and your body deserves it.
These 10 simple changes in your life may just be the key to be able to lose 20 pounds quickly – and never gain them back. You may just see your fitted tops and body hugging dresses in the front of your closet sooner than you would have thought. I know I have.
