Sneaky Trick #1
I hope You are ready for this, people don’t realize that what they drink is one of the most important steps in losing weight.
In fact, most people don’t know that when they feel hungry, they may actually be dehydrated and they are really thirsty, not hungry.
Water is your best friend.
70% of your body weight is nothing but water.
This is also why water plays an important role in weight control. So
TRICK #1 drink water.
Yes, you know that you need to drink about 8 glasses of water per day for your body to burn fat and flush toxins out of your system.
But a study from Germany revealed that water is more rapidly absorbed by the body and increases your metabolic rate by as much as 30% for 2-3 hours.
Have a large glass of water when you wake up in the morning and it will fight your body’s dehydrated state from the last 6-8 hours and jolt your metabolism out of its slumber to get a fat-dissolving start on your day!
Crazy Trick #2
The “vacuum” trick.
Next time you’re lying in bed or first thing in the morning, exhale while pulling in your abdominal muscles like you’re trying to suck your belly button all the way to the back of your spine.
Hold it and contract for a 10-second count and then release.
Take a 5 second breather and then repeat this procedure another 3 more times.
This’ll wrap up those core abdominal muscles nice and tight like you’re strapping on a girdle and train your muscles to give you a slimmer waist.
In fact, it’s not unheard of to lose at least an inch from your waist in 30 days or less. This is another great trick you can start using right away.
Small Trick #3
We all know that a single calorie counts, especially when you are trying to maintain a calorie intake of less than 2000 a day.
This little trick may not seem like it would have a huge effect but if you do the math it really adds up. And over time will help you create a flatter stomach.
Next your tempted to get a tasty pepperoni pizza get ready to blot it.
Blot??? Use a paper napkin to blot a teaspoon of fat off a pizza slice.
At a slice a week, that’s more than a whole cup of fat you won’t eat this year.
Sneaky Trick #4
Replace fruit juice with fruit.
Fruit juice isn’t as healthy as most people think it is.
Juice actually has a lot of sugar in it and I do mean a lot.
If you are craving a glass of juice, drink fresh fruit juice out of a juicer or better yet, just eat the same kind of fruit instead.
Like orange juice?
You’ll find a fresh orange even more satisfying believe it or not.
Plus, fresh fruit provides your body with much needed fiber as well as better assimilation of vitamins and minerals. To really get the benefits of your fruit try to always eat it before any other food not after.
