Everyday Tips for losing 10 pounds

 There was a time in this world when the need to  lose weight was completely unheard of. People ate well,  but the worked well too. They woke up early in the  morning and then engaged in a whole day’s work. This  work was mostly physical labor. People worked on fields  digging, sowing, harvesting. They tilled they soil, rode  horses, worked on farms and ranches. The result was that  they could afford to eat almost anything they wanted in  whatever quantities they wanted.  

  But that was ages ago. The world has changed so  much since those days. Life styles have changed so much  and the comforts and facilities have increased so much.  But every rose has its thorn. As a result of all these  comforts and amenities the state of physical well being  has really changed. Most of us have sedentary jobs that  demand little or no exercise at all. To put it simply, things  have become so damn easy. And just as can be expected,  weight gain has become a major concern for almost every  city dweller.   

  During the period of thoughtless youth it is not  such a major concern. The young practically eat nothing  and so weight problems do not bother them so much. But  as soon as you turn twenty, you start showing signs of  weight gain and that too in all the wrong places.       


Drink plenty of water. Our body needs a lot of water so  give in to water. Water is not just way to flush out toxin  but if you have more water in your body you will  generally feel healthier and fitter. This it self will  discourage any tendency to gorge. The best thing about  water is that is has no calories at all.  


Start your day with a glass of water. As soon as you wake  up, gulp down a glass of cool  water. It’s a wonderful way  to start you day and you only need a lesser quantity of  your breakfast drink after that. A glass of water lets out  all your digestive juices and sort of lubricates the insides  of your body. You may have your morning cup of tea but  have it after a glass of water. It is good for you.

Drink a glass of water before you start the meal. Water  naturally needs some space so that you feel fuller without  actually having to stuff yourself. 


Have another glass of water while you are having the  meal. Again this is another way of making yourself full so  that you can actually rise from the table eating less but  feeling full just the same. Instead of drinking it one gulp,  take sips after each morsel. It will help the food to settle  faster so that you get that feeling that you are full faster.  

SIDENOTE:  Water is such a remarkable thing,  but seldom do we give it the credit that it  deserves. Did you know that over 66% of your  body weight is nothing but water? It’s  amazing!  

Water also plays a vital role in weight  control, which is why I donated so much space  to it, above. 


Stay away from sweetened bottle drinks, especially  sodas. Hey all those colas and fizzy drinks are sweetened  with sugar and sugar means calories. The more you can  cut out on these sweetened bottle drinks, the better for  you. So if you must drink sodas,  then stick to diet sodas.  


Include in your diet things that contain more water like  tomatoes and watermelons. These things contain 90 to 95  % water so that there is nothing that you have to lose by  feasting on them. They fill you up without adding to the  pounds.  

Eat fresh fruit instead of drinking fruit juice. Juice is often  sweetened but fresh fruits have natural sugars. When you  eat fruit, you are taking in a lot of fiber, which is needed  by the body, and fruits of course are an excellent source  of vitamins.

If you do have a craving for fruit juice then go for fresh  fruit juice instead of these that contain artificial flavors  and colors. Or even better, try making your own fruit  juice taking care not to sweeten it with too many calories.  


Choose fresh fruit to processed fruits. Processed and  canned fruits do not have as much fiber as fresh fruit and  processed and canned fruits are nearly always sweetened.   


Increase your fiber intake. Like I mentioned, the body  needs a lot of fiber. So try to include in your diet as many  fruits and vegetables as you can.
