Diet and exercise may be key components of weight loss, but many other factors also play a role. Studies show that everything from sleep quality to stress levels can have a big impact on hunger, metabolism, body weight and thus also reduction of belly fat. How to lose weight quickly?
Eat nutritious products and eliminate processed life
In the store, steer clear of shelves with processed products. Ready food is not only high-calorie and full of sugar or salt. Not only that, you don’t quite know what is in all these boxes, jars, cans and bags, but you also feed your body with artificial additives that the body is not able to digest.
A simple diet based on simple products definitely works in favor of your figure. By putting on lean proteins and low-carbohydrate vegetables, you’ll have a lot more control over your body, resulting in weight loss.
Limit salt and salty products
Salt causes fluid retention. The more you salt, the more you swell, retain water. Give up salting and eliminate salty products (cold cuts, cheese, powdered soups, ready-made sauces, salty snacks, silage). Thanks to this, you can lose up to 1.5 kg per day.
Get enough sleep – minimum 7 hours
People who sleep less than 7 hours a day can be up to 5 kg heavier than those who sleep 7-8 hours. Note! Too much sleep (over 9 hours) also negatively impacts your weight. Poor-quality sleep changes the secretion of hormones responsible for controlling appetite. The amount of ghrelin that makes you want to eat increases, and cortisol increases, which increases fat storage.
Have you ever heard the phrase “body sculpts in the kitchen, not in the gym”? This is true; if you lose weight, your diet should always come first.
Exercise can, however, play a helpful role, and one of the best things you can do is resistance training. In other words, lifting heavy weights. Recent studies show that compared to people who are slimming and doing aerobic exercise, they gain more lean muscle mass.
Be active not only in the gym
Movement is the basis for maintaining a slim figure and health. Therefore, even if you do not exercise regularly, try to stay active throughout the day by doing simple physical activities (especially if you have a sedentary work and spend 8 hours at the desk). Give up the elevator and take the stairs instead of a car ride, take a walk. Domestic duties, such as cleaning, are not only good for your apartment, but also for your figure.
Drink plenty of fluids
Drink up to 3 liters of still mineral water, green tea, fruit teas and herbal infusions. When your body is properly hydrated, your body’s circumferences will diminish. The less you drink, the more fluid your body retains
