4 Small Changes You Can Make to Lose Weight Faster

Losing weight will always be something which is most sought after especially for individuals that have suffered health issues due their weight. There are tons of blogs and websites that promise people overnight results, but there's actually more to losing weight and we have delved into this topic a little bit more in this article.

1.Food Journaling

You need to be conscious of what you are putting into your body and this includes keeping track of your diet. It's easy to go astray and consume different types of food which are not good for your body but if you jot things down you can easily spot what might be the problem. I would recommend using the traditional pen and paper method or you can even use your phone notebook.

— This is a good practice to check your eating habits.

— It will allow you to control your portions.

2.Exercise more

A lot of people shy away from this method and expect the results to be as good as someone that does exercise. Unfortunately it doesn't work that way, eating healthy must always go hand in hand with exercising. You don't need to lift heavy weights to be healthy, something that is simple as running can have a huge improvement on your overall health. We have named a couple of exercises for beginners below (you can also refer to the illustration above).

— Doing jumping jacks

— Running

— Climbing up and down the stairs

— Dancing

3.Eat less processed food

It's no secret that packaged food contain a lot of added ingredients that can be harmful to your body. This includes too much sugar, fats and sodium. Switch to organic products instead, you can find them on the fruits and vegetable side.

4.Drink water before meals

Practicing portion control is difficult but when you drink water before eating a meal it becomes so much easier. It can be a glass of water or two, depending on how much you want to drink. But there more you drink, the less hungry you are going to be.
