How to lose weight naturally

1# Make exercise a daily habit.

Physical activities can boost your metabolism. Ideally, you should do 40 minutes of physical activity each day. These minutes can be cumulated, for example: you can do 10 minutes of sports in the morning and 20 minutes during lunch break, and 10 minutes before you sleep.

2# Forget the fast.

Fast is one of the worst ways to lose weight. Due to lack of food, you body intends to reserve food. When you restart to eat, your body will try to store some calories in order to prepare for another previewed starvation, instead of consuming the calories.

3# Note down what you eat.

Develop a habit of noting down what you eat during each day. You may find you eat more than you think and you consume some unhealthy food.

4# Consume dairy products.

Recent studies have shown that too low calcium intake leads to fat storage. Ideally, you should consume some low-fat dairy product each day to meet your calcium needs.

5# Watch less TV.

Studies have shown that a large number of hours spent watching TV are associated with unhealthy eating habits. By watching less television, you'll have more time to devote to other physical activities and be less influenced by advertising that encourages you to eat.
