Tip #1 – Get Your Z’s
It cannot be stressed enough, you need sleep! In our culture of coffee and screens, people are able to stay up late and still function in the morning. Or, at least they think they can. To really understand why sleep is so crucial for your life, read this from the National Institute of Health.
In addition to improving your cognitive functioning, getting more sleep will aid you in weight loss in these specific ways:
- Sleeping more means less time to eat
- Having more energy will give you the boost you need to get your body moving
- No unhealthy munchies late at night
Tip #2 – Stock Your House With Good Food
If you’ve ever been hangry, you know that it’s not the time to start preparing a healthy salad. When you need to eat, you will literally eat whatever is in front of you. Stale cookies from between car cushions? Been there. Stealing your kids’ Halloween stash? Done that. Move on from those shameful habits by stocking your fridge with healthy options that you can grab quickly.
Some people allocate a day to cook and prep meals for the rest of the week. Others like to use evenings to make their food for the next day. As long as you have the proper ingredients in your home, you can make anything. Are you a beginner cook? Try fun Tasty videos for a quick meal idea.

Tip #3 – Try An Appetite Suppressant
In 2011, the internet went crazy over Garcinia Cambogia, which stops fat production and suppresses appetite. Since then, supplements have been flooding markets all over the world.
Take advantage of this naturally occurring plant to help curb your hunger pains and make it easier to avoid eating the tempting food that is so bad for us.
What do you need to know about it? Garcinia Cambogia’s efficacy is based on its active ingredient Hydroxycitric acid (HCA). Look for a supplement which contains a high concentration of HCA in order to get the most out of it. There are a plethora of reviews online so you can find the right one for you.
Tip #4 – Move Your Feet
If the thought of lycra pants and a gym membership has you hiding under your blanket, don’t do it! We suggest using a Fitbit or a walking app instead.
First, track the distance you currently walk each day. Then, find a creative way to add more steps daily. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Or ask a neighbor to go on a walk. Everyone can find 10 extra minutes in their day to move their feet.
So, read these tips and try one today. Your life will change, your waistline will change, and best of all, you will not be on a diet. Which will you choose first?
