You can actually enjoy losing weight by enlisting the help of some unconventional habits, like coming up with challenges for yourself or even smelling apples before eating a meal.
Create a healthy water intake regimen
Drink two glasses of water with lemon in the morning to wake your body up, hydrate your empty stomach and boost metabolism. Then, drink before lunch so you don’t overeat and while at lunch, as well; this will help your digestion. At 4 pm, drink again, because of the long period between lunch and dinner. Drink at dinner or after to help the food move easily and make your stomach feel lighter.
Smell green apples or bananas before your meal
Whether you find this ridiculous or not, smelling food like bananas or apples before your meal will ease your hunger, which will help you eat less than you otherwise would have. So, go buy some apples!
Light a vanilla candle after dinner
This also might sound ridiculous, considering how much vanilla goes into various cakes, pancakes and puddings, but a study found that the vanilla scent works wonders when you’re trying to lose weight. It activates various chemical reactions in the brain, making you feel less hungry.
Take photos of your meals
When looking at your meals from above, trying to get the best shot, you can’t help but notice the details of your food, which might make you stop for a second and rethink what you’re going to eat.
Buy some blue plates
If you surround yourself with blue, like putting up blue wallpaper or eating from blue plates, you’ll lose weight much faster. A study found that the colour blue is an appetite suppressant which will help you to feel less hungry.
Eat eggs for breakfast and spicy foods for lunch
It’s been proven time after time that consuming eggs for breakfast helps achieve faster weight loss. And if you combine that little trick with eating something with chili or red pepper for lunch (not all the time, though) this will help your metabolism speed up, thus helping you achieve your dream body faster.
Sleep in a cold room
The magic trick here is that if your body is surrounded by cold it produces more heat to warm you up which helps you burn calories. So enjoy some cold every now and then.
Chew slowly and properly
It has been proven that if it takes you longer to eat and you consume your food slowly, you’ll have an easier time losing weight. It’s all due to the fact that chewing slowly and properly makes you feel fuller faster, and this helps you get full with less food. Ideally, it should take you around 20 minutes to finish a meal. So savour it and get the most out of each bite.
Drink a glass of wine daily
Yes, a study found that a glass of wine a day can help you lose weight faster. But don’t overdo it, the same study found that people who drank more than two glasses of wine daily struggled more when dieting than those who didn’t drink.
