Basically, most people who want to lose weight will want to lose weight without diet or exercise. This is not a bold exaggeration. The below tricks will help anyone lose a little weight without major diet shifts or exercise.
It will not grab headlines with drastic “before” and “after” images, but these small tricks can seriously help trim some excess weight. Interestingly, these tricks seem like they would cause the reverse.
Consider adding a starter meal before eating. A starter meal just seems like more food and would cause weight gain. On the contrary, a starter meal is typically lighter and lower in calories, like a salad. By the time the main meal comes, a person winds up eating a little less of it than they would have otherwise.
Take Pauses Between Bites
It is a statement said to many millions of children growing up. But, it can actually help in the quantity of food eaten. Slow down, take pauses between bites, and try to savor the taste. A person won’t end up eating more because they are taking their time. A person who chronically eats fast will actually find that they make it through less of their food.
Drink a Lot of Water
First, water is just a great thing to drink anyway. Stay hydrated to stay healthier. Water fills the stomach a bit, which means it can help against those small little hunger cravings that come. The stomach is only idling.
Water can fill the task of getting to the next meal without adding some unnecessary calories. It is also absorbed quickly into the body to provide a little extra energy to get to the next meal. Typical spring water has essentially zero calories, so it will not cause weight gain.
The above little tricks will not cause a person to lose an incredible amount of weight. These are small tasks that require no exercise, no major diet changes, and very little effort to do. They can help curve the odds a bit and make it a little easier to lose weight.
It is possible, with just a few very small adjustments in behavior, to lose a modest amount of weight. Complement these behavioral tricks with real diet and exercise, and the results will be astounding.
