Top 5 Ways to Reduce Weight Fast
Regardless of whether we're blokes or women, we've always dreamt about possessing that perfect 'fashion-model' body ..especially given that we're living in an age where appearances (whether one likes it or not) do count and get measured a lot.
Lets face it though - Not everybody's able to commit to a rigorous dietary and gym routine and some people are just neck-deep into their jobs before they can even think about setting some time aside for their health - I am one of them.
Despite my lack of time and laziness (Yep I admit it) ..I have made a list of 5 daily simple techniques and regimes (tried, tested and followed by me) to keep that fat and waistline under control.
Drink Lots of Water and Green Tea
I usually begin my day each morning by drinking a 600 ml bottle of water followed by a glass of warm-hot water - Certainly helps with the 'early morning' routines and is a good way of getting rid of any toxins and starting the day with a 'flushed out' stomach. Also make it a habit to consume a lot of green-tea throughout the day (I consume more green-tea than water and without adding honey).But green-tea magically helps your digestive system and has a way of killing stomach-fat.
Green-tea not only helps reduce weight but also carries with it a plethora of other health-benefits. Some ot these include (but are not limited to):
- Aids in maintaining clean oral health
- Destruction of bacteria within the stomach and intestines which aid in digestion and prevent food-poisoning
- Raises the level of good cholestrol in the body
- Has anti-ageing, anti-oxidizing and anti-carcinogenic properties.
One downside of green-tea is that it is a stimulant and does contain caffeine. If your body does not react well to caffeine, then limit your intake of tea and drink warm to hot water instead.
Drink Aloe Vera Juice
Often called by old civilizations as the 'miracle plant', Aloe Vera has frequently been revered by both old and modern physicists as the one substance which can practically prevent almost any ailment which might strike the human body (when consumed over a sustained period of time though).
There are many ways you can consume Aloe-Vera. People with gardens in their homes choose to make their own juice out of plants while others consume pills or ready-made Aloe Vera juice products.
I usually mix 3 bottle-cups of Aloe-Vera juice in my hot-water each morning. I can personally attest that by just these two methods alone, there's been a marked decrease in my fat-content, a healthy blood-pressure - not to forget my skin's improved dramatically. Aloe Vera's especially useful in that in supplements many benefits which are offered by green tea and helps in building a permanent soothing lining along your digestive tracts to aid in healthy digestion and maintaining blood-pressure.
Brisk-Walk or Jog for at least 20 Minutes each day
Nothing much to explain here - but walking's something that's seriously underrated. While not being the same as a good jog - a brisk walk is a good way to burn off some calories when done for at least 15-20 mins a day (especially if you feel you don't have the stamina to run).
Using my example, I walk at a quick pace at least 30 mins everyday (during my 'commute' between home and my ferry to get to work). The distance both ways is roughly 3.6 kms (or roughly 2.5 miles) which I cover in 25 mins all up.
Eat Whatever You Want ... but in Moderation
People often think that they often need to cull down totally on 'junk' food or guilty pleasures to lose weight. While that's valid to a certain degree considering no two people metabolize the same way, it's not the right way to go - Don't get me wrong, you don't want to be the guy or girl who got sick because they just ate a Big Mac every single day for a month .. but it doesn't meant you need to completely abandon spoiling yourself a bit either.
Keep things in moderation. As a guide to balanced eating, drink a glass of red wine from time to time (It does help the heart), have lots of veggies and seafood and keep the red-meats to just once or twice a week. If you follow the other tips above everyday, there's no reason why you shouldn't satisfy the craving for that pizza or meat-burrito at least once a week :)
Keep a Positive Attitude and Keep it Natural!
Please do yourself a favor and look at yourselves in a positive light even if you think you 'don't have' that perfect body - Remember there's many out there who can't even walk let alone support a walking routine, can't drink clean water let alone having the tools to heat it up and mix Aloe-Vera in it.
Be thankful for what you've got, love yourself and the results will surprise you. Stay away from liposuction and other artificial enhancements - Our bodies CAN automatically correct themselves if something doesn't seem right.. let it be that way while you do your bit - NATURALLY :)
Being positive is part of understanding the law of attraction. I've written a separate article regarding the subject and how you can channel it to manifest winning the lottery. Please read when you get a moment :)
