We know that, when it comes to losing weight it either goes in consuming fewer calories or burning more calories.

When we take up a diet , its just that the intake of food should be cut down, like wise if we eat a plateful of rice, just consume half. But you also know that most diets and quick weight-loss plans don’t work as promised.

If you’re trying to drop a few pounds fast, these are some tips which will help you to lose the weight quickly.

Balancing The Nutrients

The best way to reduce calorie intake is by incorporating more fiber into your diet. The recommended amount is about 30 grams a day, but most people don’t consume enough fiber.

Don’t Skip Breakfast

Skipping breakfast won’t help you lose weight. You could miss out on essential nutrients and you may end up snacking more throughout the day because you are hungry.

Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day.

Do Not Skip Meals

Eating small frequent meals helps to balance your calorie intake throughout the day and also keeps your blood sugar level balanced. Instead of eating 3 big meals, try to eat 5 – 6 smaller meals throughout the day.

Trying on The fresh

Purchase fresh foods and avoid highly processed foods. Fast foods are often higher in sodium and fat content. Avoid having oily food. Instead have boiled vegetable along with soups and fruit salads.

Do Not Restrict Yourself Too Much

Everyone has their own favourite treats. Simply allow yourself a little indulgence, but watch out for the frequency and the quantity. Having a small treat once in a while can be rewarding to your weight loss experience.

Sleep Well

Sleep plays a huge role in weight gain, so ensure you get at least seven hours of sleep.  Sleep helps your body repair efficiently and boosts its resilience.


Most authorities recommend 30 – 60 minutes of physical activity a day to stay healthy. Also try adding weight-bearing exercises at least 2 times a week. This will help burn some of the unwanted calories.

Drink plenty of water

People sometimes confuse thirst with hunger. You can end up consuming extra calories when a glass of water is really what you need.

Eat high-fibrous foods

Foods containing lots of fibre can help keep you to feel full, which is perfect for losing weight. Fibre is only found in food from plants, such as fruit and veg, oats, wholegrain bread, brown rice and pasta, and beans, peas and lentils.

Using a smaller plate

Using smaller plates can help you eat smaller portions. By using smaller plates and bowls, you may be able to gradually get used to eating smaller portions without going hungry. It takes about 20 minutes for the stomach to tell the brain it’s full, so eat slowly and stop eating before you feel full.

Don’t get addicted to junk food

To avoid temptation, try to not stock junk food – such as chocolate, biscuits, crisps and sweet fizzy drinks – at home. Instead, opt for healthy snacks, such as fruit, unsalted rice cakes, oat cakes, unsalted or unsweetened popcorn, and fruit juice.

Focusing on a diet Plan

A low calorie diet doesn’t have to be the ordeal it is made out to be. If you stick to three meals and two snacks a day, you ought to stay full.

There are plenty of recipes that you can try for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that not just aid in weight loss, but are delicious to boot.
