Diets have become common practice in our life style, where people are made to believe they will be more healthy if they just lose a few pounds. The truth is, 95% of people who lose weight on a diet will sooner or later gain it back. With some effective changes that can still be enjoyable, you’ll lead a more active, healthy lifestyle that will make you feel better and look better. So, here are some ways that you can be lazy and still lose weight and stay healthy.
1.Make you meals yourself rather than reaching for shop bought ready meals which are usually full of fat, salt and sugar, you could try making your own instead. Next time if you are off work, cook large batches of healthy meals and freeze them. That way you will have lots of healthy meal choices for the days when you can’t be bothered to cook.
2.Order healthy foods to your door. Many health food stores and farms offer seasonal packages and deliver them to your doorstep, making it easy to try different healthy foods from the comfort of your own home.
3. Savour your food which will help in good digestion. You should try to chew each mouthful of food around 30 times before swallowing it to ensure correct digestion and allow the nutrients to absorb properly.
4. There are supplements you can take if you think your diet is lacking in a specific vitamin or mineral. You could also supplement ‘super-foods’ such as wheat-grass and spirulina into your diet, which can boost your immune system and give you energy.
5.Exercise isn’t just for the body. You’re burning calories when your mind is hard at work, too. When you just want to lie around, try reading a book or doing some puzzle games in the newspaper instead of snacking in front of the TV.
