I’m a little surprised that the basics weren’t mentioned — like eating fruits and vegetables daily. But especially vegetables. Or how about supplements or medicinal spices like cayenne. When I was in Greece last year on vacation, I lost eight pounds because I was eating a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables. Over there, food isn’t GMO but is grown naturally. I think that was a key reason.
Thank you very much for these advice, above all this one of identifying between hunger and saciety, that’s usually the fail people commit more frenquently.
Agree – identifying physiologic hunger vs. emotional hunger or all the other reasons we eat along with recognizing when we start to feel full can be important steps in supporting weight loss .
by.plz tell me.i usually take warm lemon water every morning and i have really reduced my portion of food and in btwn the day i usually boil tangawizi,lemon,ginger and garlic the take the water with an aim of losing weight will this really help me loose weight
There is no research that has examined the products you are taking with the water for weight reduction. Losing weight is challenging, but for many people the combination of a healthy meal pattern along with daily physical activity can produce some weight loss .
FWIW, this is what I posted to facebook:
Could a busy schedule get in the way of going to the gym? Wake up an hour earlier.
So, to do that, one needs to go to bed an hour earlier. Losing sleep is bad on so many levels, including weight control. It’s hard to shift one’s sleep schedule earlier & even if you do, what were you doing in that last hour before bed that you then won’t do?
Also, fwiw, while there are many good reasons to go to the gym, in general, losing weight isn’t one of them (so the reviews I have read said).
What should work best is a personalized diet but not considering genetic factors.
Hey what about detox tea or something in your regimen.I read that there are lots of benefits using a detox Teas as your method for losing weight. They are made with all-natural ingredients, have been blended to include best herbs that have been shown to help out the major organs of the body. For me personally it did I want to try it because I see some to none results at all with dieting and working out for several weeks. I tried green tea and it helped a little but I ran into this forum about red tea and I dont know whether not to try it out or not. What do you think?
There are no published scientific trials that support using a detox tea or any other type of tea to support long term weight loss. Tea can serve as a non- caloric beverage (as long as you are not adding sugar or milk/cream) and therefore can support efforts to reduce overall calories.
