7 things to give up if you need to lose weight

Staying slim and healthy is usually about making a commitment to lasting lifestyle changes—not the latest trendy diet.

7 things to give up if you need to lose weight

If you need to lose weight, follow our recommendations below:

Avoiding a food
Try not to restrict any food from your diet, if you need to lose weight. They will become more attractive when they are not allowed. Instead, eat what you want, but in moderation. When you’re consuming it, eat it mindfully. Slowly enjoy every aspect of flavour, texture, and aroma so you are truly satisfied.

Not sleeping enough
Your sleep affects your eating habits. Sleep loss is the number-one reason that can affect your eating habits. The benefits of getting enough sleep can extend into all part of your life.

Severe diets
Strict diets are unhealthy, but there’s more to it than that. Studies show that they really don’t work, they slow your metabolism, and you will have all your weight back when you complete your diet plan.

Avoid alcohol
Alcohol lowers inhibitions and therefore increases mindless eating. To control this, don’t drink on empty stomach, and keep healthier snacks in the fridge for when you get home and defences are down.

Skipping meals
Your hunger hormone – ghrelin, and your satiety hormon – leptin, work best when nourished every four hours. If not, they can cause overeating later. Try making plans for your meals.

Eating fat-free foods
We need fat to keep us full and promote satiety. Removing fat from food will leave us craving more and overeating later. Opting for fat-free versions of certain foods can even cause you to take in fewer nutrients from them.
Eliminating fat from foods like dairy, for example, limits the absorption of important fat-soluble vitamins like A and D, and calcium, as well.

Stop sitting all day
If you need to lose weight, go for regular walks. Do some low-impact cardio or strength exercises. Move more!
