Despite of perspiring a lot of sweat in the gym, are you not able to burn out that extra chub? The fact is that you eat more calories than you burn. Hence, besides workout, you need to count on your calories. Here, we will give you 10 no-sweat tips to shed 500 calories per day.
1. Do not Eat In front of Television
Distraction hinders the progression of reaching satiety in the brain, thereby affecting our food intake. You do not even realize that how many more calories you consume while watching your favorite soap on television or listening music. Lets eat at the table.
2. Replace Bigger Plate with Smaller One
Swap your big plate for a small one. This way, you will consume 20 to 25% fewer calories. You can also substitute high calorie food with low calorie food. Substitute whole milk with fat-free milk. Have a glass of fresh fruit, instead of pizza, chips, snack or popcorn.
3. Do not Eat Directly from Package
Eating directly from a package or container gives you no idea of how much you are consuming. Thus, takeout food in a smaller bowl or plate and then have it.
4. Limit the Number of Dinner Guests
If you eat alone or with 3-4 persons, you eat less. Like, if you are dining with a group of 8 to 10 guests, your food intake increases by 30-35%. The more food you consume, the more will be the consumption of calories. Hence, dine with fewer guests.
5. Sleep Well
Sleeping late night may make you feel hungry. You can’t control yourself from snacking. According to a research, your BMI (Body Mass Index) is linked to the quality and length of sleep you have. If you want to reduce the pesky flab, get enough sleep.
6. Tune with Your Tummy
It is difficult to control self from over-eating when the dining table is festooned with your favorite food. If you want to trim 500 calories per day, so stop your over-eating. Put the fork down when you are satisfied.
7. Tap Your Foot
Fidget more. Walk around while talking on cell phone or dance on your favorite music. Instead of the elevator, take the stairs. Change the TV channel by getting up instead of pressing the remote button. All these tweaks will help you in slashing the calories.
8. Eat out Smarter
Avoid nuts, whipped cream, pasta, sweetened fruit juices and junk food. Drink plenty of water. Eat a lot of salad, and include green vegetables in your diet. Instead of eating 3 big meals, have small chunks of food.
