Losing weight has always been stereotyped as a tedious job – hitting the gym always, having a strict diet, and spending lots of money on supplements and diet pills. But in today’s article, you will learn how to lose weight at home in just 2 weeks – and yes, without spending too much money.
Green tea has benefits not only on your skin, but on your overall health as well. Drinking green tea helps reduce one’s appetite, thus, helping you lessen your food intake. The best way to drink green tea is in the morning on an empty stomach (before you eat breakfast) and on the evening before you sleep. Drinking tea also helps calm a person.
Remember when your mom told you never to skip breakfast? Well, she’s right. Eating breakfast helps boost your metabolism, thus, speeding up the process of your body converting the food you have consumed into energy. Never EVER skip breakfast. To help you effectively lose weight, you may follow this guide:
- Eat a heavy breakfast (rice and protein rich foods)
- For lunch, eat lightly (salad, fruits, or a whole wheat sandwich with tuna)
- At dinner, eat a very light snack (vegetable salad or fruits only, no protein or carbs); if you’re feeling full, you may skip dinner but do not do this every day. Remember, the key is eating the proper food in the right portion.
Substitute your sugary drinks with water to help speed up the process of your weight loss. Many people have resorted to water therapy in the hopes of losing weight and believe it or not, it is actually effective. Aside from helping you lose weight, water also helps clean your body and helps rid it of the toxins accumulated from living an unhealthy lifestyle.
We all know that exercise is one of the primary things that will help you lose weight, but if you’re not the type of person who exercises on a daily basis, then try walking. Studies show that walking for at least 30 minutes a day can help you lose those excess calories. If you are at home, you can try walking up and down the stairs.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR AND LEMON WATER
The power of apple cider vinegar and lemon water has been proven time and again. In selecting an apple cider vinegar to use, choose the one that says “with the mother’ on it because that means that it is raw and unfiltered and you will be getting more of its health benefits. Now, to prepare your drink, fill your cup halfway with water. Next, squeeze half of your lemon and mix it with the water, adding one table spoon of apple cider vinegar thereafter. If you don’t have any lemon, the mixture of water and apple cider vinegar would work just fine as well.
Just make sure that you won’t drink the ACV straight from the bottle; it ALWAYS needs to be diluted in water. Do this every day and drink your concoction after lunch. Those people who are ‘acidic’ can do this as well, provided, you will add more water to the mixture to lessen the acidity of the ACV.
