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.
