The fifth day of the tips that I give for simple ways to lose weight. And if you are just joining us at this point, you may definitely need to go and start from the previous posts in this blog.

 

…you can’t get it all just in this post; you definitely need to checkout my older posts on this.

 

…this is the continuation of what I started this week for all of us(Another significant 15 ways/steps to lose weight effectively).

 

Just as we all agreed, I am going to bring to you all “those simple ways to lose weight effectively”, which most of us are really ignorant of.

 

Of course, they are simple ways/steps, however, they work out perfectly well.

NB: This is going to last for few more days. I urge you all, my esteemed readers(those interested in weight loss) to keep up with the posts so that you will get the full gist and ensure lasting positive weight loss result.

Today’s ways/steps(another 15) to lose weight effectively includes;

  • Steer Clear of fast food restaurants. Most of their food is 40 to 50 percent fat.

  • Use evaporated skimmed milk.

  • Plain non-fat yogurt is great. It’s also good as an add on to breakfast cereals and desserts

  • Stay away from the appetizers unless you request crackers or fresh vegetables like carrots.

  • Split a meal with a friend.

  • Low fat foods may seem less flavorful when you first try them because fat adds flavor to some foods and you are used to that.

  • Yogurt can help you lose weight while protecting muscle.

  • Spicy foods can curb your appetite as evidenced in a recent study.

  • When exercising, use a multi-purpose squat to improve strength in the lower body. This will strengthen all of the major muscles of the lower body including hamstrings, quadriceps, calves and gluteals.

  • Use balance training exercises to help in performing daily living and activities. Try a one-legged balance exercise by standing on one leg for 10 to 15 seconds, switching legs and repeating the process for three to five sets.

  • Jump in place with feet together. Alternate between touching the left and right heel in between jumps with both feet.

  • A simple shoulder shrug can help to strengthen your back. Stand erect with dumbbells or other weight in each hand. Lift your shoulders toward your head by elevating your shoulders and slightly retract and roll them back. Pause for a moment then return to the starting position.

  • Another exercise to strengthen the back is a scapular retraction. Begin with your feet shoulder width apart and your pelvis tilted and slightly forward. Engage your abdominals so you can maintain neutral spine. Flex forward and hold dumbbells extended down and away from the body. Flex the shoulder blades together, pausing then slowly returning to the start position. Avoid bending your elbows and vary the exercise by using a single arm at a time.

  • Remember to keep it slow. Perform all exercises slowly. Spend two to five seconds in the lifting phase of an exercise and four to six seconds in the lowering part. If you move too quickly, you won’t get the muscle strengthening benefit of the exercise and you could hurt yourself.

  • Work up to the point where you can do three sets of each exercise, with 5-15 repetitions of the exercise in each set. Don’t rest within the sets, you can rest briefly between each set. As the work becomes easier add weights or increase the number of repetitions you do.

Get up now and take action towards achieving you weight loss goal(s).
