Early morning on the way to the park, we can people from every walk of life passing us by engrossed in their fitness bubble. One can see youngsters cycling, teenagers running, old people jogging, some of them standing in a circle laughing dramatically to sweat of their everyday troubles. As we all know, losing weight is the new mantra of this season. From youngsters to the youths to the middle-age and as of late the old age, everyone is thriving to keep their body in shape. To all our youth, weight lose comes with heavy hours spent in the gym, sweat and extravagant work-out, but is that always necessary? Weight can be lost even without gym-ing and to prove that here is today’s article.
The first step to a proper body without the gym is a strict diet. One cannot expect to have it that good, so from the early morning a formidable diet should be followed. We have often heard our parents say how important breakfast is and they are absolutely right. Start your day with a bowl of cereal and some milk and occasionally maybe some pancakes or toast. A proper meal at the very beginning of the day keeps your metabolism on its peak so that you can function well throughout the day. The trick is to have a light lunch and dinner probably avoiding all food that might aggravate the weight gain and eating less but more times a day giving your body that space to digest up the food and process them.

Along with a diet the right kind of food is also important and that means saying bye-bye to all the burgers and French fries on the Sunday evenings. Although this is breaking an age-old myth, spicy food does help you get rid of your extra flabs. The Endocrine society in their annual meeting in San Francisco declared spicy food like hot pepper or jalapenos, onions and garlics can help you get over your problem of over-eating. Science says when the food tastes better; we get a feeling of being full and thus curbs over-eating and weight loss. Then again the small snacks around the day should be only fruits and light weight snacks otherwise the weight will tend to remain the same.
Good Night’s Sleep:
