7 Super-easy Diet Hacks to Lose Fat Fast!

Updated on March 29, 2016

Can’t keep up with a strict diet? Tired of starving and not getting results? You have come to the right place! These simple changes to your lifestyle will help you lose those extra pounds without having to follow strict rules and counting calories. People who have already lost some weight but have hit a halt can also benefit from these simple tips.

1. Have early dinner and delayed breakfast.

Intermittent fasting is very well known to reduce body fat. It is rapidly becoming common among bodybuilders who want to reduce their body fat percentage. All you have to do is have an early dinner and a delayed breakfast. The point is to put at least 16 hours between the two meals. The reason for this is during the time of fasting your body will use calories from stored fat and since you will be sleeping during the night you will not be conscious of the hunger. The purpose here is not to starve but still lose the stored fat

2. Reduce fat elements from your routine diet.

We all know how difficult it is when the whole family or group of friends is dining out but due to being on a diet we cannot have the food which they are having. Well, not anymore! every place has a variety of dishes to offer. Choose the one which has less fat or customize your order by asking to omit the cheese, mayonnaise or other fatty ingredients that you know will be incorporated in the dish. Same goes for home cooked food. While cooking at home, set aside your portion before adding 'fatty' ingredients.

3. Spice up your food!

Most weight loss supplements in the market use pepper as one of the ingredients. The reason is “Capsaicin”. It is the chemical that makes the Chili hot. Once you consume it, it will increase your body temperature and the fat will start to burn. It will also fasten your metabolism hence your body will slow down the process of storing fat.

4. Add lemon to your diet.

Lemons are rich in vitamin C which helps dissolve fat stores so either squeeze one on to your food or Infuse it in your green tea, lemon has all the benefits of an orange but without the calories of the fruit sugar.

5. Reduce your bite size and chew for a longer period.

This may sound weird but it's a proven fact that our brain takes 20 minutes to register that our stomach is full. But by that time we have already overeaten. By reducing the size of our bites and chewing for longer period we are actually slowing down the eating process so that when our brain signals us to stop, we haven't eaten as much as we would if we ate faster.

6. Start drinking tea or coffee, preferably before workout.

Caffeine is known to increase our metabolic rate it fills our body with a rush of energy that is needed during workout. When we workout, the caffeine in our system is burnt so it usually does not interfere with our sleeping patterns (unless you’re working out right before sleep).

7. Drink plenty of water, especially in the morning.

Make a habit of drinking water first thing in the morning. It will replenish oxygen in your blood cells and improve blood circulation. You will feel more active and energetic throughout the day. Drinking 16 ounces of water increases the body's metabolism by 20%. Drinking water will also help flush out toxins from your body making you feel lighter and healthier.

Try these easy hacks for at least a month and you will start seeing results. It’s a guarantee!
