The internet is a place with tons of bad weight loss information. It is extremely difficult for one to find weight loss tips that don’t come with a list of unrealistic tasks. It’s an even tougher task to find weight loss tips that are logically and scientifically backed. Fortunately, we have wise words straight from the expert, Dr. Puneet Nayak – CMD of Prettislim, on how to lose weight naturally:-
Here are Dr. Nayak’s top 5 tips for weight loss –
1. Adding protein to one’s diet
If one is thinking weight loss, ‘protein’ has to be top of mind. Protein is the king of the nutrients. RDA Of Protien is 1 gm per kg of ideal body weight for Normal Sedentary Individuals. Protein is deficient in Most of Indian Diets. A body can burn calories when digesting and metabolizing protein that it consumes. A high-protein diet pushes up the ‘calories burnt count’ by 80-100 calories per day.High-protein diets also make one feel more full, in-turn reducing the chances of unhealthy ‘in-between’ meals. A high protein diet can realistically result in reduction in consumption of up to 400 calories per day.
2. Eat whole single ingredient foods
Basing one’s diet on whole, single ingredient foods is an easy way to keep that calorie count in check. It is the easiest way to lose weight. By doing this one eliminates a variety of processed food, added fat and added sugar. Whole foods also provide the body with the essential nutrients that it needs to function well. Eating whole foods is extremely healthy and by doing this, a weight loss treatment is inevitable.
3. Do some sort of cardio
Doing cardio is a great way to burn fat, keep fit and feel good. One can choose from a ton of ways to indulge in cardio. Whether it’s jogging, cycling, hiking, playing a sport or power walking, all forms of cardio provide not only physical but also mental health benefits. A quick-fix to keep one’s body weight in check, cardio is particularly effective in controlling that much-dreaded body fat.
4. Drink more water
This might be something that one comes across everywhere but Dr. Nayak cannot stress on this enough. The only reason everyone comes across this tip is because there is significant truth to it. Drinking 0.5 liters of water increases the calories burnt for the following hour. Drinking water before meals also leads to reduced calorie intake especially as one grows older. The main benefit of drinking a lot of water is using it as a substitute for unhealthy soft drinks we tend to consume casually and frequently. Drinking 12-15 glasses of water daily is advisable.
5. Add resistance exercises
When switching diets or taking up restricting diet plans, loss of muscle mass is a simple side effect that needs to be tackled with care. On losing a lot of muscle, the body also starts reducing the rate at which calories are burnt. One should never shy away from lifting some weights and reap the benefits of weight loss, healthier looks and a better mindset.
Dr. Nayak insists that despite the odds of one’s schedule and lifestyle being against weight loss, the first step is convincing the mind that this is what one truly wants. One can easily find 100 unique methods on how to lose weight fast but let’s be honest, with the way one’s daily and weekly schedule pans out, it’s almost impossible to live that 100% clean and healthy life.
