Losing weight takes a lot of sweat and discipline, but even when you’re not powering through a treadmill interval workout or counting calories, there are a lot of simpler ways to see those pounds drop on the scale. Employing these 10 little tricks daily will help you lose weight, no gym or diet required.
- Always start a meal with a glass of water. You’ll stay hydrated and feel fuller instantly, which can help you from overeating.
- Make a few simple swaps at every meal. Going for a vinaigrette dressing instead of a Green Goddess dressing at lunch can save you 80 calories, while opting for fresh fruit instead of dried can save you dozens as well.
- Have a piece of dark chocolate for dessert. Instead of opting for the cookies in the break room, quiet your sugar cravings with a piece of dark chocolate. It may not feel quite as satisfying the first few times, but as you wean yourself off your sugar addiction, you’ll be glad you’re saving calories while having a healthy yet decadent treat.
