The diet industry is full of myths and miracle recipes that rarely work. In the best case scenario, you manage to lose those extra pounds… only to regain them after a while. Here is a list of scientifically proven weight loss tips.
1- Drink water, lots of water:
We keep saying it over and over again, you have to drink a lot of water. Drinking water can boost the metabolism by 24-30% over a period of about 1 hour, and helps the body burn calories, making it an excellent adjunct to weight loss.
A study proves that drinking half a liter of water almost an hour before a meal pushes us to eat fewer calories and therefore helps us lose up to 44% more weight.
2-Include eggs in your breakfast
Eating whole eggs can have all kinds of benefits, including weight loss.
Scientists have looked into the subject and found that replacing a cereal breakfast with eggs also helped to eat fewer calories over the next 36 hours, and therefore lose more body fat.
If you can’t eat eggs for any reason, don’t panic. Any other source of quality protein eaten for breakfast will do the trick.
3-Drink coffee (preferably black):
All too often demonized, coffee is actually packed with antioxidants, and can therefore have a number of health benefits.
Studies prove it. Caffeine increases metabolism by 3 to 11% and increases fat burning by 10 to 29%. However, be sure not to add industrial amounts of sugar and other high calorie ingredients. This would totally negate the benefit gained from the coffee.
4-Drink green tea:
Like coffee, green tea has many benefits. It contains a lower dose of caffeine, but is also packed with antioxidants called catechin, which “work” with the caffeine to burn even more fat.
Although scientists are mixed on this point, there are many studies that prove that green tea (consumed as a beverage or dietary supplement) can also promote weight loss.
5-Get into the coconut oil:
Coconut oil is very good for your health. With its high content of special fats, called medium-chain triglycerides, it is metabolized by the body differently from other fats.
It has been established by researchers that these fats stimulate the metabolism and burn an additional 120 calories per day while reducing appetite. In total, you will consume nearly 256 fewer calories per day.
Of course, it is not a question of adding coconut oil to what you have already cooked, but of replacing the oil you use for your culinary preparations.
