Lean Muscle Building:

Depending on the body composition, patients may be required to build more lean muscles to increase metabolism. Fact: Muscle has a higher metabolism than fat. Next time, make sure you include more amount of weight you’re working with. This will also keep you challenged and provide you with the necessary drive for weight management.

Include Filling Foods:

A recent study suggests that 284 women between the ages of 25 and 45 achieved the weight loss target by adding more filling food in their diet.  The feeling of fullness can be always done with food high in fiber, such as fruits, vegetables, grains, and lean protein.

Avoid Temptation:


We understand it’s not easy to avoid temptation, but giving in brings no good either. Resist the temptation to binge on forbidden treats and pick and limit your moments to the minimum. There are various ways to avoid daily temptation, for instance planning ahead when eating out, eating out less and getting rid of the worst weakness from the house.

Exercise more:

Exercise is believed to be a dieter’s best friend. Other than burning calories, it can improve metabolism. If you’re swamped with personal and professional life, you’ll be happy to know that just three 10-minute spurts of exercise per day are just as good as one 30-minute workout.

Eat Breakfast:

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Always indulge in healthy choices everyday – think oatmeal, green yogurt and fresh fruits. It is also advisable to start your day with a good breakfast in order to avoid overeating.

Drink Your Water:

Your daily calorie intake can be reduced significantly by replacing soda, alcohol or, coffee with water.

Lastly, make sure you adequate sleep. Do not binge on TV shows for a long time. Should you must watch your favorite show, get a little workout in while watching – think squats, sit-ups, jogging.
