Before we get into the tips and tricks to shed those extra pounds without dieting or exercise, a disclaimer: This is information that is not provided by a Doctor or medical professional and should not be considered as such or in replacement for legitimate medical advice. Take care of your body, it’s the only one you have. And now for what you need to do to drop a few extra pounds that will leave you feeling metaphorically and literally, lighter!

Eat with a teaspoon:

Sounds ridiculous, we know. But it works! This one way to reduce weight without dieting or exercising. By eating with a teaspoon instead of eating with your hand or with a regular tablespoon, you’ll have to scoop the food a greater number of times. This will trick your brain into feeling full. You’ll feel as if you’ve eaten two servings instead of one. This will also help curb your cravings for a second helping or dessert.

Eat from a smaller plate:

This has everything to do with how the food is presented to you. If you eat the same quantity of food, but presented on a smaller plate, once again, you will be tricking your brain into thinking that you are eating a larger serving than you actually are. And since the plate is slightly smaller than what you are accustomed to, it will prevent you from overeating by stopping you from serving yourself a larger portion of food. This doesn’t mean that you should eat less or starve yourself! Serve yourself the same amount of food that you usually do, simply eat off a smaller plate!

Intermittent fasting:

Now we know it sounds sketchy or unhealthy, but all intermittent fasting means is that you eat at the same time every day, and stop eating after 8 PM everyday to let your body’s natural metabolism burn the extra fat for you. And yes, it means no more midnight snacking – which, let’s face it – is the real problem here. TO make intermittent fasting a part of your regular schedule, you can use apps on your phones to track the times at which you have your meals. One such app is Zero (Apple app store, Google Play), which is made specifically to help you keep track of intermittent fasting.

Replace unhealthy parts of your meal with healthier ones:

This is another method of losing weight without dieting. You will simply replace your junk food cravings with healthier alternatives: this will help you lose weight and eating healthier has other benefits such as improving your skin, providing more nutrients, etc. For example, replace Cheetos with carrots or replace Nutella with honey. Try to find healthier alternatives for every meal. And don’t worry, healthy doesn’t mean tasteless or less flavor, there are plenty of healthy meals that will satisfy both your taste buds and your stomach.

Consider going vegan or vegetarian:

What it's like to really lose over 100 pounds

Going vegan or vegetarian is considered a huge trend these days, but it has so many benefits: It is better for the environment, it is a healthier alternative to animal meat, there are less chances of obtaining parasites from your food and it can help treat digestive issues and boosts your body’s metabolism. Vegetarianism means no consuming any animals meat – so no chicken, no beef or pork or fish. On the other hand, veganism means no consumption of any anima products at all – so in addition to animal meat, vegans also do not consume dairy products, eggs or even honey. If this sounds too extreme for your taste, consider becoming a pescatarian instead: you only consume fish, not chicken or mutton. Fish is a rich source of protein, but isn’t heavy like other sources of protein, which brings us to our next tip.

Cut down on the protein:

If you consume a lot of meat, try to reduce it or replace it with other alternatives. To shed extra weight that is stored as fat in your body, you need your body to burn through the carbohydrates it receives daily and also, some stored fat. By consuming protein, you make this job harder for your body – protein cannot be stored in the body so it will be metabolized first instead of carbohydrates or fat. But if you’re adamant about keeping your meat, then you’ll simply have to work out or exercise more. It’s your choice.

Eat at a table, without any distractions:

If you watch television or scroll through Instagram while eating, your brain will not be aware of how much you’re eating and you’ll simply feel hungry again, regardless of how much you eat. Put your phone away. Focus on the food – this will also trick your brain into thinking the food is more delicious than it really is.

Add one new exercise:

The fastest way to lose weight is to burn more calories than you consume. It’s simple mathematics. So instead of dieting or reducing how much you eat, simply increase how many calories you burn. Go for a walk, or a swim or a jog. Or just climb up and down the stairs in your building. Also, doing physically tiring stuffs will also help you sleep better, which indirectly affects your fat loss.

And there it is, nine simple tips that will help you lose weight without dieting or exercising. Eat healthy and stay fit, take care of your body – it needs to last you a lifetime!…

15 Things I Would Tell My 20-Year-Old Self

With the passage of time and the varied experiences life takes you through, one is bound to have gathered their own sense of wisdom, here are 15 lessons I learnt and wished I could tell my 20-year old self

It’s not the number of friends but the quality of friendship

As a young adult, you are bound to be attracted to the idea of having a large friend circle and be surrounded with people but as it happens, having a close knit circle of friends and a great number of acquaintances is far better.

Be your biggest well-wisher and make yourself the first priority

No matter how big of a well-wisher you have in your life, no one have lived your life and understands your dreams and wishes, so it is on you to carve out your priorities, that includes making yourself your first priority and doing so doesn’t necessarily mean you are selfish

Discipline and willpower are important

Nothing worthy in life can be achieved without a routine driven with discipline and will power. These virtues are such that, the more you use them, the more you would possess them

Exercise is important for both physical and mental health

A moderate exercise three times a week can do wonders for your health

The value of reading can not be overemphasized

Reading is an understated personal development activity, it very subtly, brings you closer to your true to yourself, equip you to express yourself better and definitely make you into a better version of yourself

Nurture the thirst for knowledge and lifelong curiosity

A life lived with curiosity and an everlasting thirst for knowledge is the fuel for a fulfilling life

Cultivate a hobby which gives you joy

Having a routine to life is important, but going over something without having a detour to self discover can quickly turn everything monotonous, so it’s essential to have a hobby which just purely gives you joy

Be brave, most of the time you think it’s the end of the world, it really isn’t.

In different phases of our lives, we go through different turmoils and it almost always feels like it’s the end of the world, while its difficult to shake the feeling away, it helps to look back and see all that you have survived and just being brave in the face of adversity you will make it to the other side.

Have savings, it’s never too early to start

Money might not be everything but it is an undeniable commodity, having financial independence at a young age, even if it is for your minor expenses is a healthy habit which you can develop over the years.

Learn the art of saying no

Time and energy are two of the most important commodities we are running out of each moment of our lives, remember this mantra to decide what is worth your time and whether spending time on a certain activity enriches your life in a meaningful way

Forgive, forget and move on

Holding on to grudges and heartbreaks is only natural but in the end you need to make peace with the episode and know that moving on is the only way you can make way for better things in life.

Life is not always about adjusting and compromising, sometimes it’s giving up and letting go or even not conforming

Adjust, compromise, conform are words which are thrown at us even from a young age, but be wise enough to understand when you should refuse to do so. Life is a beautiful thing and a tragedy at times, you have the right to choose to do something which is meaningful to you, even if that is not what your community expects of you.

Take interest in artistic expression, watch movies and TV shows, listen to moving music and read world changing books

Art is how you can enrich your life, how you can marvel at the beauty of the human intellect and a life spent without appreciating art is a life wasted.

Don’t take yourself or anyone else too seriously

Life can get you stuck into a runt, when it’s just jumping from one goal to another, every once in a while to break the circle, do something different, don’t take life to be a series of serious acts, because inevitably it will all reach its dawn and so take some time to have fun and truly live life.

Most things don’t last forever and that’s okay

As humans we often crave for lasting positions, relationships and more than anything everlasting happiness but the truth of life is everything is transient and you can not hold onto anything forever no matter how hard you hold on to it, even our lives can be lost in one fleeting moment. Be glad for the wondrous experiences you had and know that many more are yet to come.…
