Burning more calories every day and losing weight without dieting
If that’s your goal, you’re in the right place. Because, of course, it is possible to get slim without diet, and in a healthy way. By the way, the following tips are effective and sustainable. But, losing weight without dieting and no added supplements or sport, can that really work, and how? Let me share a few simple, yet so natural, tips with you.
Dropping extra pounds without diet and exercise
If you want to lose weight, you can, of course, research many books, buy expensive products and try all sorts of things. However, you can also simply focus on the basics, the absolute basics:
Because if you want to lose weight, your energy consumption should be higher than the dietary calories. That this rule of thumb is not 100% correct is also known, but it is completely sufficient for our purpose and for today’s contribution. One calorie is not always equal to one calorie, that’s right.
But today we do not make any science out of it. The advice that I’m about to give also makes it possible to lose weight without dieting. Not 100% accurate, or scientifically approved yet, but sufficient and self-tested.
A great app is the best supplement for weight loss
Even without changing your diet or sport, you can use an app to help you lose weight, to keep track of your energy intake and energy consumption. Then you can also estimate how effectively you are losing weight.
Because the trick is that you naturally increase your energy consumption in everyday life.
So the rule of thumb should be to eat at most as many calories as you consume/burn. The tips below will take care of the rest.
The best app for this is MyFitnessPal. In this app, you can save standard dishes and recipes, calculate your energy consumption every day anew and keep a good overview of your success.
There are five ways to burn more energy in everyday life.
Five proven methods to increase your energy consumption on a daily basis. We are talking about a considerably higher energy consumption if you implement this advice. So it is possible that you burn more than 1000 kcal daily from one day or week to the next.
That’s a lot, right? Try to achieve a difference of 1000 kcal per day through exercise or purely through nutrition.
Therefore, today’s contribution to your weight loss success is absolutely crucial. Of course, exercise and diet also do their part, but the biggest potential for keeping weight off and speeding up your metabolism is burning more energy in everyday life. Without effort.
I suggest you try these points. All at once, because they are relatively simple and not very time-consuming. In the course of the weeks, observe how this affects your well-being, energy in everyday life and accomplishments:
To lose weight fast, cold is one of your best friends. Of course, it requires some willpower, but it’s worth it on several levels in the longer term (and you can use it to boost your willpower in the long run):
You are more focused and persevering in everyday life. Plus, your body becomes a heater – literally. Because of the direct cold contact, short and brutal with a cold shower, it causes your body to form much more heat than before.
70% of the energy you consume daily is pure heat. In this way, this factor again increases increased immensely.
According to studies, energy consumption in a cold-adapted person increases by 300-400 kcal per day. Cool, right? – Pun intended!
How does this work? Shower in the morning with cold water for a few minutes. Set yourself some time aside for this special “ceremony.” But do it with common sense, so you do not get sick. A cold shower is also a good part of an effective morning routine.
In Winter, you can go one step further and jump into icy lakes. This is, of course, the royal road, while you can almost literally watch your body fat, as it disappears.
Work in standing
Running your business and walking does have a positive impact on your metabolism. Your muscles have to work harder, and your circulation improves. Also, in order to support the standing position, your body needs to utilize more energy.
Whether you opt for a job where lots of standing and walking is required, or you simply transform your regular desk to a stand-up desk is up to you. You can either buy one at relatively affordable prices or create your very own by putting beer crates under the table legs.
There are some awesome vintage wooden crates available on Etsy or eBay, for example. If you’d rather handpick them, then Home Depot also offers these great looking boxes.
You’ll be surprised to know that standing up while doing your office jobless burn somewhere between 300 to 400 calories per day.
What else makes a huge difference is walking during the day. Incorporate extra time spending on foot instead of in your car. I figured the effectiveness of walking several years ago during Wintertime.
Well, with the holiday season and all, I packed up on a few extra pounds. I was shocked, but I also learned that this happened because of lacking strolls.
So, I began walking my daily 10.000 steps (or more) again and dropped the accumulated pounds pretty fast. So try to run more of your errands on foot; both work and home-related.
If you’re using public transportation, then step off a couple of stations before you reach your destination and walk the rest. Whenever you’re driving your car, park it farther away to get some extra benefits. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, too.
Take care of your thyroid
Right behind the larynx lies the walnut-shaped thyroid gland. Although small in size, the thyroid is essential for our metabolism. The thyroid gland produces all those hormones responsible for the function of human metabolism.
They can either speed it up or make it almost dormant. I say “almost”, because your metabolism never sleeps unless you’re diseased. However, these hormones can slow it down so much that it seems as if it were sleeping. This is bad, as it triggers weight gain.
In order for the thyroid to function satisfactory, it requires special nutrients. Merely 300 calories per day make the difference between a normally working thyroid and hypothyroidism. So how can you boost your thyroid health?
The main issue with a malfunctioning thyroid gland is the lack of iodine. This does not apply to all ailments of this gland. Some exceptions, for example, are Hashimoto’s and Graves’s disease where the consume of iodine can be rather harmful.
However, for the rest of people with thyroid problems I recommend to upper their iodine intake as well as healthy omega 3 fatty acids. Try to eat fish, preferably salmon, smoked salmon, sardines or cod, a few times a week; not only once.
These fish- types are loaded with iodine, selenium and omega 3 acids, which your thyroid needs so badly. With time, you will see a steady improvement in the performance of your thyroid.
Get enough quality sleep
I am sure that by now you’re probably wondering what’s got sleep to do with weight loss? How should a REM cycle help you drop weight and boost your energy usage?
The answer is quite simple: More Americans complain about sleep issues than there are Americans who are happy regarding their sleep patterns. The fact is that whenever you do not awaken refreshed in the morning, this has a negative impact on your metabolism as well.
As long as you sleep badly, your hormonal balance changes so significantly that your metabolism automatically slows down. So if you sleep sufficiently and well, your metabolism will increase as your thyroid forms fewer metabolism-lowering hormones, such as cortisol.
The more efficient your thyroid and your muscles can work, so does the metabolic performance of your body. Try to schedule at least seven hours of sleep per night. Eight hours would ideally be better.
Bonus – An effective combination
Dietary supplements have not made it in this listing so far, but there are some worth mentioning.
Of course, you do not necessarily require them, but it speeds up your metabolism immensely, thus, increases your metabolic performance. I am referring to alpha-lipoic acid and L-carnitine (acetyl-L-carnitine). I wrote a specific article regarding this nutrient here:
As mentioned above, you do not have to take them. They are also somewhat pricier, however, I’m still mentioning them for those who don’t want to miss out on any information regarding weight-loss without dieting.
So, if you’d decide to try these supplements, then you’d have to take a capsule of each, alpha-lipoic acid and 1.5g of acetyl-L-carnitine, three times per day.
Afterward, watch what will happen within your body, and how this makes it possible to lose weight without dieting even faster. At least that’s what I’ve learned after my conducted research.
You see, I’m not offering those supplements for sale, just to let you know upfront. Not because I think they are bad for you, but I haven’t really tried them myself, nor do I know anyone who did.
I am principally only offering items that I whether tried, tested, own(ed) myself, or a good friend of mine does/did. I always want to ensure that you receive the very best, safe and personally approved.
However, if you insist on trying them, I believe you can encounter them either in your local drug stores or, definitely, in various of online stores.
As you can see, it is possible to burn up to 1000 kcal a day with this advice. Losing weight without diet, without sport, without having to change much is possible. These tips are easy, quick and inexpensive to integrate into everyday life, tested and guaranteed.
If you want to lose weight quickly, but also want to be healthy and sustainable, these tips are probably more effective than beginning with sports. Sport is, of course, an ideal complement, but more exercise in everyday life and more energy burning in everyday life is a good start.
