3 ways you can reduce calorie intake without starving yourself
Reducing calorie intake is one of the most important parts of weightloss or fitness journey. However keeping proper balance of calories that we consume on a daily basis might not be as easy as it sounds. But worry not, here are few ways you reduce calorie intake without starving yourself
Drink more water
One very simple trick to increase weight loss is to drink more water. Doing so can increase the number of calories you burn for up to 90 minutes. Drinking about 8 glasses (equal 2 liters) of water per day can make you burn about 96 more calories.
Exercise and lift weights
When you eat fewer calories, your body compensates by saving energy, making you burn less. This is why long-term calorie restriction can significantly reduce metabolism. Plus, it can lead to loss of muscle mass. Muscle is metabolically active, so this can reduce metabolism even further. The only proven strategy to prevent this effect is to exert your muscles by lifting weights.
Reduce your carbohydrate intake
Cutting carbs is a very effective way to lose weight, as it reduces appetite and makes you eat fewer calories automatically. Studies have shown that eating a low carb diet until fullness can make you lose about two to three times more weight than a calorie-restricted, low fat diet. Not only that, but low carb diets also have many other benefits for health, especially for people with type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome.
