How To Lose Weight At Home – 7 Key Tips & Tricks

Proper hydration is necessary for weight loss. Also, water helps you to feel full for longer!

Tip 1: Drink LOTS of Water.

Many people who are struggling to lose weight are not drinking enough water. Try to replace coffee, tea, soda, or juice with water as much as you can.

According to US News and World Report, to determine the minimum amount of water you should drink each day, you should follow this formula:
– Divide your body weight (in pounds) by 2.
– This is the number of ounces of water you should drink each day.
For example, a female that weighs 132 pounds, should drink 66 ounces of water daily.

Water is necessary for your body to do all the important functions for weight loss. It keeps your metabolism going to burn those calories! If you’re having trouble reaching your water intake goals, try adding some fruit to the glass to enhance the flavor.

Adding Superfood Tabs to your routine is an awesome way to hit your water intake goals. The yummy berry flavor makes drinking water even easier — and your water will be loaded with superfood nutrients, too!

Write down what you eat every day in a food journal. This will help you track your eating habits.

Tip 2: Track Your Food!

One of the most shocking things in the world can be tracking your food intake, to see how many calories you’re actually consuming on a regular basis. If you’re just getting started, we recommend creating a food journal in which you log the meals you eat for two weeks before trying to lose weight.

Weigh yourself at the beginning of the two weeks, and at the end of the two weeks. If your weight is about the same, you’re currently eating enough calories to maintain your weight. That’s a really helpful number to know!
– If your weight is greater than your first weigh-in, you’re eating over the amount of calories that you need to maintain your weight.
– If your weight is less than your first weigh-in, you’re eating under the amount of calories that you need to maintain your weight.

For optimal weight loss, Mayo Clinic recommends eating in a deficit of 250 to 500 calories per day. Remember that food is fuel, and your body needs fuel to burn fat. Eating too few calories is both dangerous and unhelpful!

Break up your meals to eat less per sitting. This also helps your body process & digest food!

Tip 4: Split Up Your Meals

Switch up your schedule! Eat multiple small meals a day, rather than two or three large meals.

Research has shown that your body can metabolize food faster if you eat multiple smaller meals per day, rather than one or two big meals. Break your daily food intake into 2-3 healthy “snacks”, and 2 – 3 healthy, medium sized meals.

Try drinking Superfood Tabs 30 minutes before a meal to promote healthy digestion & control portions!

Keep burning those calories! Exercise for at least 15 minutes per day. Planks and squats are extremely effective, equipment-free exercises.

Tip 5: 15 Minutes of Daily Exercise

Daily exercise doesn’t mean we recommend doing cross-fit daily. Commit to at least 15 minutes of meaningfully moving your body each day.

Plan time for exercise. Write it down in your calendar, and stick to it! When you’re feeling like you don’t have the motivation to work out, go for a brisk 15 minute walk instead. Try HIIT based training with alternations of 30 seconds “on”, and 10 seconds “off”. This could include doing squats, planking, doing pushups, or jumping jacks.

Swap the packaged snacks for fresh fruit!

Tip 6: Break Up with Packaged Snacks

Most packaged snacks are loaded with chemicals, preservatives, and fillers.

With the exception of things like protein bars, granola, and other healthy options, try to skip the pre-packaged snacks. Many bagged or boxed snacks are loaded with sugar and chemicals to keep them tasting yummy for months.

Instead, switch your afternoon snacks for whole foods – fruits, veggies, and lean meats. Try cucumbers with hummus or a fresh fruit bowl in place of chips. Both types of foods are carbs – one is just better than the other!

Tip 7: Get Moving Once an Hour

Your body needs regularly movement to keep the blood flowing, heart pumping, and calories burning!

If you have an smart watch, set it to alert you once an hour during your working hours.

Otherwise, set a kitchen timer for once an hour. Get up and walk around the house each time you hear the buzz. If you can, do a couple of laps up and down the stairs!

How to Lose Weight at Home: The Wrap-Up

Remember, the most sustainable form of weight loss is done through a combination of healthy eating and exercise. The goal should not be to lose as much weight as possible in one week! Aim for 1 pound of weight loss per week to ensure you’re treating your body right!
