When we hear the ‘concept of diet,’ the very first thing that strikes the mind is ‘deficiency.’ The underlying cause of this is not that our perception’s has mold in this manner, but because dieting concentrates on losing weight. So, I have come out with a very positive approach towards it, where you don’t need to focus on cutting down your dishes, but instead concentrate on what things you should be getting more. Don’t worry, you won’t feel that you are missing out something, and neither will you get those calories in you, but instead you will trench them. Let’s check ahead 10 stuffs for losing weight without the formidable fear of ‘dieting’.

  1. Eat more breakfast: Research strongly supports this point and finds it to be the most significant meal of the day. Influencing studies have reported that those people who eat breakfast are healthier and maintain healthy weight than the breakfast avoiders. These category of people tend to eat lesser calories, less saturated fats and cholesterol. Therefore, don’t miss your healthy breakfast consisting of healthier foodstuffs like whole grains, nutrient-enriched fruits, lean protein and veggies. The healthier breakfast stuffs can comprise of whole grain cereals chucked with fresh fruits or pieces of nuts, parfaits prepared with granola, fresh berries and low-fat yogurt.
  2. Add more spice: To add taste to your food doesn’t just mean that you need to deep-fry or drench foods in cheese. Mixing spices too is a wiser idea and can turn your dish into a lip-smacking meal. The ‘International Journal of Obesity’ published a report that asserted that people who flavored their food with red pepper felt more fulsome and ate less over those who didn’t add pepper. This is because pepper, Chile peppers and chili powder contains a compound called ‘capsaicin’ which has the potent to curb hunger. Also, it gives a boost to metabolism process and adds taste to your food. Henceforth, add pepper in your meals and make a great kick-start. Add this chilly spice in your soup, veggie meals for a kick start. Another spice worth seasoning is turmeric. One study reported at the annual meeting of Society of Endocrinologists’ in 2008, pointed that turmeric can alleviate inflammation in the body which leads to detrimental diseases like diabetes and obesity. The plain and spicy seasoning of turmeric fits dishes like vegetables or lentils perfectly.
  3. Eat more fiber: If you try to cut up fibers from your diet, then hunger crosses the way. Therefore, it is essential to be to the fullest both in food and energy and this can be rendered to your body by fibers. Both- soluble and insoluble fibers are requisite and can be easily found in whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Soluble fiber aids in stabilizing your blood pressure and keeps cravings far away. The insoluble fiber fills your stomach to the wholesome and this indicates the gastro-intestines that you are filled to the fullest.
  4. Fill yourself with perfect kind of proteins: Basically, body requires more calories to digest proteins compared to fats or carbohydrates. Also, it helps in a swift flow of the metabolism process and stabilizes your lean muscle mass. Protein has the potent to keep you stronger for longer than carbohydrates, because intake of protein makes you feel brimming for a long time. But the problem behind consuming protein is that most of us consume wrong kind of protein like full fat dairy. Therefore, always be picky while choosing the perfect protein. You can catch protein enriched foodstuffs like beans, lentils, soybeans and low-fat dairy.
  5. Eat more volume: Munching nourished foods doesn’t necessarily mean to eat very small bites. If you love eating, then there are no restrictions until you eat volume-rich foods enriched with water or fibers so that they settle in your plate and stomach. You can munch upon foodstuffs like 4 cups of 94% fat free microwave popcorn, a quarter cup of raisins which contain about 13 calories and works as one and a half cup of fresh grapes, and well-sized baked potato that makes up to 150 calories.
