7 Ways To Lose Weight Massively
Watch What You Eat
While we’re all for standing more throughout the day, when it comes to eating, it’s best to grab a seat. Research indicates that people who stand while eating gobble down 30 percent more during their next meal than those who sit! Scientists speculate that when we eat on our feet, we don’t consider it a “real meal” and subconsciously eat later in the day. If you currently consume a 450 calorie dinner, you could easily bring that number down to 360 just by making time for sit-down lunch
Stop Fried, Eat Salad
You can still eat your favorite burgers and nuggets and lose weight so long as you switch out the fries for a side salad. Don’t believe this hack can make a major difference? Consider this: A side salad with low-fat Italian dressing from McDonald’s has 70 calories while the calories in a small order of Ronald’s fries complete with a packet of ketchup has 240. If you eat fast food twice a week, this simple swap will save you 17,680 calories, or 5 pounds, a year! Obviously, the calorie saving varies depending on the fast food joint, but so long as you go light on the dressing, you can be sure you’re saving at least 100 calories each time you dine.
Eat More of Dark Chocolate
Instead of noshing on cookies or a king sized candy bar, quiet your sugar cravings with a small piece of dark chocolate. We like Nibmor Extreme Dark Chocolate with Cacao Nibs because it has a mere 160 calories per serving and is made with just five ingredients a rare find in the candy aisle. A dark chocolate square may not seem quite as satisfying as your favorite choice the first few times, but after awhile you won’t even miss the sweeter snacks.
On average, a slice of cheese whether it be atop a sandwich, salad, omelet or burger has about 70 calories. Eliminate it from just three meals a week to keep 10,920 calories and keep 3 pounds off of your frame over the course of the year.
