Too busy to deal with your weight loss plans will be a perfect excuse of why you’re still overweight. Luckily there may be some methods which will not be so complicated when you participate, so leave your time-consuming diet advice books and tons of so called “best tips” on the web alone, let’s find some time saving plans here for busy people.
Know your serving sizes well
Serving sizes are something you should understand correctly at the start. You often tell yourself (and you surely do) you are keeping to eat organic & healthy foods for days. But does the result turn out fine? If not, maybe you are making a mistake, eating too much. Overeat is a common problem which easily to be ignored when you’re applying a diet plan. Control the total amount of your meals is very crucial, if you failed at that part, you will not succeeded in your weight loss plan. Now we are going to introduce some easily-remembered references to help you to do the portion controlling of your every meal. So keep all of them in mind when preparing your meals everyday, they will offer you a solid foundation for losing weight. We will use things like baseballs, dices, deck of cards, and your fists to calculate:
1 serving of meat, fish, poultry = a deck of cards
1 serving of cereal = size of your fist
1 serving of cheese = 4 stacked dice
1 serving of fruit = baseball
1 serving of a starch (rice, pasta, potato) = half of a baseball
1 serving of margarine or butter = 1 dice
Simply put, you may need to have a clear mind of how many calories intake daily. You may have heard of from some weight loss programs that calories counting is not that important, but the fact is that weight loss will happen when calorie intakes drops. You may feel the whole calculation progress is complicated and time consuming, anyway there are also some smart-phone ready apps can help you to do the calculation in an easy way. You may use these apps to free your hands and minds, and save your precious time. Here is an calorie calculator app which we recommend:
With a few minutes setting work you will be ready to monitor and track your daily calories intake, try to control the total calories you get per day, and reduce 500-1000 calories each day, you will lose 1-2 pounds every week, in a healthy way.
Have enough NEAT
Here NEAT refers to non-exercise activity thermogenesis, which scientists used to describe calories burned from your “moves” rather than go to gym and do some exercises. So if you are not a gym guy, just make sure you have enough movements to burn your calories instead. Even though the movements we are talking about here burn little calories, but if you can keep doing for a long time, you will burn a nice amount of calories for sure; therefore, the NEAT will be enough.
For instance, putting away laundry will burn 26 kcals each 15 minutes, and playing with your children will consume 160 kcals an hour.
No matter you are a super busy man/woman, or you are just a lazy bone, eat less and move more is always the right track of weight loss.
