Early morning on the way to the park, we can see people from every walk of life passing us by, engrossed in their fitness bubble. One can see youngsters cycling, teenagers running, old people jogging, and some of them standing in a circle laughing dramatically to sweat their everyday troubles. As we all know, losing weight is the new mantra of this season. From youngsters to the youths to the age and as of late the old age, everyone is thriving to keep their body in shape. To all our youth, weight loss 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.

How To Lose Weight Without Gym?

Strict Diet:

The first step to a proper body without the gym is a strict diet. One cannot expect to have it that good, so a formidable diet should be followed from the early morning. 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 at its peak so 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 the food and process it.

Right Food:

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 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 garlic 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 lightweight snacks; otherwise, the weight will tend to remain the same.

Good Night’s Sleep:

The next step is to get a good night’s sleep. A kid grows in his sleep, we know. But it also works for us too. While we are snoring away our worries, our body works on the regulation of the damage and repairs and heals the affected area, which may be anything from a sore back to a depressed mind. But what happens when the body, void of any other work looks for something to do, they digest the food and break down and process them thereby preventing fats and carbohydrates from accumulating. So this way, sleeping and being lazy for that few hours in the night actually benefits you.

The next best thing to exercise is blasting off the speakers and letting yourself free. Dancing is a sure-shot method to shed some sweat whilst having fun, and when fun mixes with work, it is a sure-shot method to lose weight too. Dancing uses up the body’s energy and the body produces more and breaks down more sugar and carbohydrate which also gets used up in the process. This way it provides the same benefits a treadmill does, with much more fun. So you can either enrol for a dance class or just dance carefree to your will. Dances like Zumba, street dance, hip hop, belly dancing and even ballet can help us tone down our bodies.

Self Defense:

If the gym is not your cup of tea, self-defence should be. There is no harm in finding out where your strengths lie and if you think self-defence is important and fun to learn, go for it since this is yet another way the body gets a routine workout without the gym and burns a good amount of calories, thereby shedding our weight. So kickbox and punch away.

Liquid Intake:

Last but definitely not the least is liquid consumption and this comes in many forms, mainly water. It may be a secret, but water does help you burn your calories while at the same time maintaining the body temperature for better skin. So when we get two free things with just one product, why not try it? Every morning a glass of lukewarm water with some lemon or honey and maybe a glass of lukewarm water plain at night before the bed- that’s all it takes. Other than this, many power drinks, protein drinks, juices or energy drinks can also benefit us by keeping the energy level in our body high thereby burning more calories.
