How To Lose Weight By Taking Advantage Of Life

“Right, okay, I need to lose a few pounds. So, what’s the best way to do it? Well, I’ll start by completely changing my diet and exercising more. Great! I’ll be skinny before I know it!”

This is how people think when they decide to lose weight. As admirable as the attitude is, it can be counterproductive as huge changes are hard to maintain. If you’ve never eaten salads and drank smoothies before, then it’s going to take some getting used to. Praise the lord because there are easier ways to shift a couple of stone by taking advantage of life.

Here are the helpful hacks.


Move House

Before you protest, be aware that the average person moves eight times in a lifetime. How many different properties have you lived in before this one? Okay, so plotting a curve isn’t a good enough reason to move, but the chances are high that you’re thinking about it anyway. When life gets in the way, say, for example, a new baby is arriving, you have to consider a new location. So, are you thinking about moving house? If the answer is yes, you should use this as an excuse to exercise regularly. By packing and loading boxes or traversing the stairs you’ll see a change.

Make New Friends

As you age, one thing becomes clear: nothing stays still. Time has its way with everyone, and you and your friends are no different. This doesn’t mean there is tension; it’s just that there are other things to focus on at the moment. Staying in touch is important, but don’t rule out making new friends, either. Joining a sports club is a fantastic way to socialise while working out and shedding the ounces. A running club is a community that looks after its own, as is a football team or badminton social.

Learn A Language

Overeating is a symptom of boredom. Being in the house makes it hard to resist the temptation of the fridge. The key is to concentrate on other things so that feeding isn’t a priority. Hitting the gym is a great choice, but be aware of the organisational side of things. For the best results, you need to eat a few hours before working out and avoid eating after eight at nine. Learning a language, then, gets you out of the house while offering flexibility. You can eat before or after, but being busy can keep hunger pangs away all day.


Follow A Religion

Certain dogmas have features that are good for weight loss. Consider Islam for a moment. Have you heard of Ramadan? It’s the holy month where there is restricted feeding. Although it sounds unhealthy, there is evidence to support the benefits of fasting. Anything from 12 to 20 hours encompassing the rest in between may increase your metabolism and burn off extra calories. Converting may be too much, but you can always try it for yourself without being a bona fide Muslim.

Can you relate to any of the above? If you can, they can help you lose weight.
