This is a basic of weight loss. Creating a calorie deficit enables your body to burn the extra fat stored in your body and help you lose weight. Stick to 1500 calories a day. This is the amount of energy required for the basic functioning of your body.
2. Eat every 4 hours
It sounds counterproductive to weight loss but eating more regularly actually helps you lose the weight faster. Eating every 4 hours will help to ensure that you’re not hungry and therefore prevent binge eating. It will also help to fire up your metabolism and assist in burning the fat stored in your body.
3. Include protein for dinner and for lunch
Eating protein will help you stay fuller for longer. Include protein in your lunch and dinner to keep you feeling full all day and prevent regular snacking or binging. It will help you kick your cravings to the curb.
4. Stay committed to your workouts
Schedule your workouts and stick to them. Give them priority and ensure that those that are close to you know not to disturb you during a workout.
5. Stay hydrated
Drink more water more often. Water helps to encourage metabolic activity.
