Having your own specific goals is the best way to lose weight in the long-term, but you can’t achieve that goal if your self-esteem is low. Adjusting your attitude and expectations will go a long way in achieving your goals. To shed those extra pounds, you don't necessarily need to starve yourself, work out excessively, or use unsafe weight loss supplements.

Here are some quick tips:

Just drink water

Drinking some juice or energy drink won’t make you feel full like eating a meal, but you will have added about 100 calories in your body. It’s, therefore, a total waste. There are also some liquids high in sodium and carbohydrates that make your body retain water and expand.

Water is safer because it has no calories, carbs, has very little sodium, and it facilitates metabolism.

Go for fat, protein, and veggies

You should make sure that your meal has a fat source, protein source, and low-carb vegetables. By doing that daily, you automatically reduce your carb intake to the recommended 20-50 grams a day. Suggested protein sources are meat, fish and seafood, and eggs. Olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, and butter are just a few examples of fat sources, while kales, cabbages, spinach, and lettuce are examples of low-carb veggies you should eat.

Avoid stress

Based on research, cortisol, the hormone that is released when in a stressful activity is linked to fat storage. One of the most common things that cause stress is poor communication between couples.

People are advised to solve their differences instead of arguing. If it’s impossible, then they should stay away from one another to allow their heart rates and blood pressure to normalize.

Take a walk or go for a hike in the evening

Exercising is always good for your body, but you will have better results when you do it in the evening because research shows that many people’s metabolism slows down as the day ends.

Also, make sure you do your exercise for thirty minutes before you take dinner. It increases your metabolic rate and keeps it elevated for some few hours.

Take the role of the “rider” during sex

You can lose much fat if you are the one rocking on top and you burn more calories if you are more active. Sex also helps you get rid of your food cravings. However, if sex is not your often thing, you can be doing 36 push-ups every day.

There are a Lot more ways you can drop that excess fat. You can also consult your doctor for more advice. Always remember to check the food labels to find the right foods for you.
