Are you looking for effective ways to lose weight without having to move your body? If so, this article gets straight to the point on how to lose weight easily without having to move your body at all!
Are you searching for easy ways to lose weight fast?
If so, you should know some of these weight-related facts first.
If you reduce your daily calorie intake by about 500 a day for a whole week… That’ll get you to lose just 1 pound of body fat.
That’s giving up 3,500 calories over the course of a week to lose 1 pound!!
And when you eat less than 910 calories a day, you will most likely lose weight on any diet. However, if you try to lose weight this way, it’ll be both difficult and dangerous.
So, to help you NOT count your calories and to burn fat much faster (without needing to do physical activity) here are five easy ways to lose weight fast that are not only healthy but also very manageable.
5 Tips to Lose Weight Without Even Moving
1. Eat soluble fiber.
A great way to lose weight fast is by reducing the flow of food through the stomach by eating soluble fiber.
Fiber does just that – it reduces your appetite and makes you feel fuller for longer!
Now if you eat more fiber-rich foods — especially viscous fibers (types of soluble fibers that form a thick gel when they blend with water), you will fast track your weight loss even more.
Plus, losing weight this way is an excellent weight-loss strategy because you won’t have to count your calories and you won’t have to move much.
Now, what can you eat?
Good sources of viscous fiber include; legumes, asparagus, brussels sprouts, oats, and flax seeds.
Great regular fiber foods include; fiber-rich fruits like bananas, oranges, apples, mangoes, strawberries, raspberries, and all types of vegetables.
Generally speaking, though, when it comes to eating fiber, the darker the pigment concentration in the color of the food like dark leafy greens and deep vibrant reds, usually means it has a higher fiber content.
2. Drink Water (Especially Before Meals).
Who knew that drinking water would help shed a lot of excess weight and prevent you from stress eating, but it does!
Drinking water helps increase the metabolism, purify unwanted waste, and also acts as an appetite suppressant.
Moreover, when it comes to the scale and evaluating your weight loss, drinking a sufficient amount of water also helps the body resist water retention, thus enabling anyone to drop those extra pounds of extra water weight when they need it.
In fact, one study found that drinking half a liter of water (or 17 ounces) a half-hour prior to eating dinner helped them not only lose extra weight but eat fewer calories than when they didn’t.
Additionally, those same participants also dropped 44% more weight compared to all the other people evaluated who did not drink water before their meals.
So it goes without saying that drinking water is such an easy way to help you burn a few more extra calories without having to count them or move too much.
3. Cut Your Carb Consumption.
When you cut carbs, did you know that insulin is decreased in the body and the kidneys begin to start shedding excess water?
This is why in the first few days (on a low-carb diet), it’s common for most people to lose a lot of water weight, usually upwards of 5-10 pounds!
Not only that, when they see the scale they must think to themselves that this was the weight loss solution that they needed all of their lives.
However, little did they know that after that initial first week passes by, the weight loss slows down and starts to even out.
Unfortunately, when it gets to this point and when people see the weight loss not happening as much after the first initial week, they tend to lose all hope and start eating those carbs again.
However, if they only knew to stay on track, they would burn more fat from all the fat reservoirs after the water weight. And even though it may seem like one or two pounds after the initial first week when the water weight was lost, this is where the weight loss journey really begins when you choose to stick with not eating carbs.
You really want to reach this point when you start cutting carbs from your diet because this is where you’ll lose the most weight!
Here are six easy ways to reduce your carb intake:
- Eliminate sugar-sweetened drinks altogether.
- Ask for vegetables and salads instead of potatoes or bread at restaurants.
- Don’t eat any white slices of bread or any starchy-based pasta.
- Stop drinking fruit juice. Extra fruit sugar will still turn into fat.
- Opt for low-carb snacks or fiber-rich snacks (hello apples!).
- Use sweeteners instead of sugar if you have to.
4. Squeeze in More Sleep.
When it comes to losing weight without even having to get physical or move around, here is a fact that you might be surprised to hear.
Sleep is NOT an inactive state, contrary to what a lot of people think!
Proper sleep helps people avoid gaining too much weight, in fact, if they do it correctly they may also lose more weight over time.
Studies show that for a 150-pound person, the estimated calorie burn over a 7-hour night duration of rest, that person is likely to burn upwards of 440 calories. If you think about it this way, that’s equivalent to a 40-minute jog on a treadmill!
So to help you lose more weight without having to do too much…
Here are three ways you can speed up the process of losing weight while you sleep:
- Stay cool at night. Staying cool at night stimulates your metabolism. If you keep your room set to a cooler temperature (to help the body burn more calories) you’ll fast track your way to extra weight loss.
- Set your bedtime earlier. A later bedtime is associated with weight gain due to late-night snacking several hours after dinner time and you’ll also eat later the next day and so forth. So try your best to get to bed at a decent hour without having a full stomach. If you need more help, this nighttime routine will work wonders!
- Limit blue light. Evening exposure to light disrupts the development of melatonin at night and this can also make it easier for our bodies to pack on those extra pounds because when your body is up it most likely wants to snack.
5. Drink caffeine.
Now even though this tip does contradict the ‘getting more sleep to lose weight idea’, this is also another wonderful way to fight fat much easier without having to do too much.
So let me explain how drinking caffeine can help you shed those extra pounds without moving.
Getting straight to the point, tea contains more caffeine than coffee, but according to studies, when they are both brewed, the caffeine amount in coffee is actually increased.
That’s most likely why some people feel the effects of caffeine (like feeling jittery) from drinking coffee over rather than drinking a simple cup of tea.
However, when we compare the antioxidant content of tea with coffee, tea will always win!
So, here’s why this is helpful in losing weight.
If you are a coffee lover, then know that drinking a cup of coffee will help you lose weight by activating “brown fat” because studies have found that caffeine burns those extra calories faster because the body is simply generating more body heat while consuming it. Simple science at its best!
Additionally, multiple studies have found that a daily coffee intake of four cups is considered a safe amount, and any more is deemed to be too much.
And since coffee is also completely free of calories (that is if you don’t add anything to it!) for maximum effect with this method of losing weight, avoid mixing your coffee with milk or sugar if you want to lose extra weight.
Now, if you prefer tea, this is where tea really shines!
In fact, if you were to pick a tea to lose weight, green tea has the most benefits to shed those extra pounds even to its counterpart coffee.
This is because green tea contains virtually zero calories as well, is loaded with healthy antioxidants, and can help boost the metabolism and improve the overall capacity of the body to burn its fat reservoirs much better than coffee.
However, that’s just the beginning because the next best benefit of drinking green tea over coffee is that you can have upwards of six cups of green tea (with 10 cups being the upper limit) without having an overdose of caffeine compared to its counterpart coffee.
So whatever you choose, either way, both tea or coffee will help speed up your weight loss (since caffeine at the end of the day will boost your metabolism).
There you have it! See, you can lose that extra weight without having to count those calories.
Just make sure you are healthy about it and don’t make any drastic changes to your diet without seeking the advice of a professional doctor.
Or if you have any health concerns, go with your instincts, and always stay healthy with any weight loss method that you choose to do.
Either way, I think these five methods to speed up the weight loss process (without having to move around too much) are much easier to carry out than running outdoors every single week. But that’s just me!
