10 Simple Habits to Learn From People Who Are ALWAYS Slim and Fit

And they're all super easy to steal!




1. Never Miss Breakfast

They don't call it the most important meal of the day for nothing. Eating a breakfast that is a healthy balance of protein and fibre like eggs with fruit and whole-wheat toast, kickstarts your metabolism and prevents you from over-eating throughout the day. A recent study from the American Journal of Epidemiology found that people who skipped breakfast were 4.5 times more likely to be obese.

2. Drink a lot of Water

Almost 60 percent of your body is water, which makes it vital to every important metabolic process. Need we say anymore?

3. Get 6-8 Hours of Sleep Every Night

Lack of sleep can lead to increase in appetite, irregular cravings for high-calorie foods and low enthusiasm. Getting a good night's sleep brings major health benefits, including healthy body weight.

4. Chew Your Food Thoroughly

Chewing more and eating slowly makes the body ingest less calories. One method to make sure you chew your food thoroughly: Stop to eat. Eating on the go can make you inhale a tonne of calories before your body has time to figure out it's full.

5. Eat Protein

Eating protein keeps your metabolism running on high even when you're resting or your body isn't in motion. Proteins keep you full for a longer duration and prevent you from overeating. For maximum health and weight-loss results, include protein in all of your snacks and meals. Example – low-fat dairy products, eggs

6. Add Spice to Their Meals

A chemical compound called capsaicin, found in chilli peppers, acts as an appetite suppressant. It boosts metabolism and fight inflammation. Add healthy spices like cayenne or black pepper to your meals.

7. Manage Stress Well

When you stress, your body releases cortisol, a hormone that promotes abdominal fat storage. If you're anxious or stressed at work or in personal life, it's time to incorporate activities like meditation and yoga into your day.

8.Move Around/ Walk Around Regularly

Taking a walk after a meal can help you lose weight, and not just because walking burns calories, but post-meal walks can lower your blood sugar levels and prevent your body from storing fat.

9. Eat an Early Dinner

Eating post 8pm makes sure you ingest the MOST calories and carry the most body fat. The simple method to stop mass fat from storing in the body is to stop eating three hours before you hit the sack. Then, while you're sound asleep, your body is programmed to burn fat.

10. Weigh Themselves Daily

Weighing yourself regularly can actually help you stay in shape. Keeping a track on your weight keeps you aware of the state of your health and prevents denial of your weight.
