Some people do not genuinely have the time to hit the gym or do intense form of exercises yet they’d like to still be fit. Its possible to stay fit without doing much exercise as far as you watch what you eat. It’s also possible to trick your body into eating less, like i know if you take a lot of water before eating when you eventually eat you’d get filled up faster.
Here are other ways that you can trick your body into eating less
1. USE SMALLER PLATES
Many people think this trick doesn’t work, but we say they’re just not trying. The hack in this is conditioning your body into thinking it’s eating a whole plate of food. People have a tendency to fill up their plates the moment they see a food source, so why not make the plate smaller and still end up full?
2. STAY AWAY FROM THE SOURCE
Seeing food is enough to make us want to eat even if we’re not really hungry. This is quite troublesome when it comes to parties or buffets where food is literally about to spill from the tables. What you can do is pick the food you want to eat and step back and walk away. It’s like a mantra: see no food; eat no food.
3. DRINK MORE WATER
This is probably the easiest hack. Water has plenty of health benefits and one of them is its ability to make us feel full. The best way to go about it is to drink 4–6 glasses of water 15–30 minutes before a main meal (breakfast, lunch, or dinner) so your stomach would only have space for the food you have to eat. The best part? Water contains NO CALORIES. Awesome, right?
4. PORTION CONTROL
Plan your meals as far as a week ahead if you can. Pack the food you need to eat daily in small containers and remove one for each day. This way, not only do you get to control the amount of food you eat, but you also get to save money by sticking to your budget. Two birds with one stone!
5. TAKE A LOT OF FRUITS
This is the exact opposite of buying snacks and sweets. If you have to eat something, at least choose a fruit. Not only are they healthier for you, but they also make you feel full faster.
6. LAY OFF SNACKS OR SWEETS
The mere sight of snacks and sweets make us go “I want food” and we can’t help it. Snacks and sweets are visually attractive and salivating and the more we see them, the more we eat them — but they’re pretty high in empty calories. Removing them from your fridge or food cabinet will make you control your appetite more.
7. CHEW YOUR FOOD MORE
Our stomach isn’t a good appetite sensor and takes a while before it signals us to stop eating. By the time it does, we’ve already consumed half the pizza. Chewing your food more lets you spend more time eating one bite before going for the next. This allows our stomach to properly notify our body if it’s full without overeating. So not only do we eat less, but there’s more pizza for everybody!
So there, you can lose weight without exercise. Awesome way to lose weight.
