10 Effective Ways How to Reduce Obesity and Still Enjoy Your Life

Obesity is one of the major diseases on the rise in the world today. People are being diagnosed with it every day. What is obesity, you may ask. Well, it is a condition where a person has lots of fat in their body thus making them extremely overweight. It is mainly measured using the BMI (Body Mass Index), which involves dividing your weight (kilograms) with your height (meters squared). In the case that the result is above 29, you are considered as obese.

They are many ways to reduce obesity. For example, leading a healthy lifestyle and exercising regularly. If you are already obese, there are things you can do to reduce this condition. They include:

10 Effective Ways to Reduce Obesity

10. Take Some Honey

Honey will help you lose weight. Stir some honey in a glass of warm water. You may add some lime juice to improve the taste. Take this mixture at least once a day on an empty stomach. In a few months, you will have lost weight.

9. Take Apple Cider Vinegar

A teaspoon of apple cider vinegar will help in burning the fat in the body. It is most effective when taken before you go to sleep, so it can work on the fats as you sleep.

8. Add Some Spices To Your Tea

Spices reduce your weight more effectively and naturally. Ginger, cinnamon, cloves and black pepper are some of the spices you may add to you tea. Need I say the taste will also be heavenly? I don’t think so.

7. Vegetables and Fruits

These are also efficient in weight loss. They contain nutrients that also leave you healthier. Ensure that at least half of the meal you take comprises vegetables. Fruits can be used as a substitute for snacks.

6. Feast On High Fiber Foods

They help you feel full throughout the day, even though they contain fewer calories and little fat. They digest slowly, meaning they will keep your blood sugar stable, not fluctuating as most foods do, and thus making you feel hungry.

5. Stick To 3 Meals A Day

Skipping meals will in no way help you reduce weight. Actually, according to research, those people who tend to skip meals, especially breakfast, have a tendency of adding weight. This is because, if you skip a meal, you tend to eat more calories when you eat the next meal. You will also feel hungrier during the day as compared to people who do not skip meals.

4. Homemade Food is the Best

There is nothing as sweet as a home cooked meal. It is not only nutritious, but also made to specific taste and flavors. Most meals made in hotel are full of fats and make you increase weight a lot. Eating homemade food will limit you on eating lots of junk and also you will be aware of how healthy the food you are eating is. If you can’t make food, don’t worry, there are lots of healthy recipes available on the internet that can guide and within no time, you will become a pro in matters of cooking.

3. Take Some Green Tea

Green tea has been shown to be an effective remedy for weight loss. With green tea, you won’t even need to take those expensive magic pills that promise you a size-8 figure in day. We both know that a lie. It works just perfect and no dieting will be required. Good thing still, you will require no dieting. Simmer the best quality green tea leaves in boiling water for a few minutes. Take the tea at least once in a day and within no time, you will be amazed.

2. Exercising

Physical exercise is by far one of the best ways to reduce obesity. Home exercises or going to the gym will do just fine. But ensure you perform intensive workout for 30 to 45 minutes in a day at least five days a week. Within no time your weight will decrease and you will be much healthier.

1. Keep Hydrated

Water is a known detoxifying agent. It helps in removing all the toxins in the body that might have accumulated leading to weight gain. Drinking enough water in a day will help you in weight loss. At the moment, the recommended amount is 8 glasses in a day. Drink water 30 minutes before and after a meal. Hot water is especially good as it eliminates fat deposits in the body.
