lose weight without exercise and these hacks come in handy

Hello everyone. Today I am going to discuss about weight loss. Over weight is as big issue for all of us. Not being able to wear your most favourite dress is heart breaking. So all of us at some point of time or other must have definitely thought of losing weight. But there are so many of us who are either busy with their work or are too lazy to workout. So here I come with some really effortless way of losing weight without exercising because every little bit helps.

1.Eat fruits

We often tend to eat junk and unhealthy food when hungry. Replacing them with fruits can help you to lose weight without actually doing anything.You can start your day with 2 apples and a pomegranate or 2 apples and an orange. Oranges are good for skin and can help you lose weight too.

2.Take the steps-

We often use elevators when we go for work or somewhere else.Taking the stairs instead of the elevator helps to lose that extra weight in an effortless way. We know that walking stairs is hard work. It’s very tough and absolutely exhausting. Running stairs is not a form of exercise for the faint hearted, so you need to mentally prepare yourself and give it all you’ve got when you are doing so. Running stairs can also be used as high intensity interval training. You can alternate between intense stairs running for 30-60 seconds followed by 30-60 seconds at a slower less intense pace.

3.Drink water-

Water, yes drinking water helps us to lose weight. Have a glass of water 30 minutes before having your meal and see the effect. If you have water before having your meal you wont just hog everything, since you are not so hungry. This controls excess eating and maintains body weight.

4.Eat breakfast  –

Many of us skip our breakfast in order to lose weight. But it is wrong to do so. We lose weight when we burn more calories than we consume. So eating a meal in the morning boosts our metabolism more than eating the same meal in the afternoon or evening. So breakfast should be done withing 3 hours of getting up in the morning. So start eating ladies and see the effect!

5.Go for a long drive walk-

Walking when the weather’s nice is a super-easy way to keep yourself fit. It is more romantic than the long drive we all go for. It keeps you healthy and fit. Google says if you add 30 minutes of brisk walking to your daily routine, you could burn about 150 more calories a day.

6. Sleeping –

Sleep more and weigh less? Is this true? This sounds like a fairy tale. But yes it is true. Sleeping helps us to burn calories and therefore lose weight. The longer you are awake, the more likely you are to consume calories you don’t need, which can cause you to gain weight. Even if  you eat the exact same diet as your friend, and  if you are not getting the sleep your body needs, you won’t drop as much fat as them.

7.Sit Straight-

You can reduce your weight just by sitting straight.

8.Take hot water bath-

Bathing with hot water is the most effective way of burning fat and losing weight quickly. Most of us bath in the morning but have you ever considered taking a shower in the evening instead? Showering at night has lots of benefits — one in particular leading to weight loss. When we take a shower before bed, our body cools down and we tend to fall asleep quickly. This helps in controlling the stress and reduces weight.

9.Stand where-ever possible-

You have often offered a seat to an elder in bus or train while travelling as courtesy. And now you need to do this to reduce your weight. Standing increases your heart rate so you burn more calories, but also builds strong lean muscle . So try to stand in buses and trains. You can een ditch your office chair and ask for a standing desk. Because just a little switch can help you burn a surprising number of calories.

10.Eat at regular interval-
