Lose 12 pounds without even trying?














So let's say you aren't in the Biggest Loser to WIN.

But totally needing to lose weight.

Here is an easy way to lose 12 pounds a year.

You just have to Cut just 100 calories a day.

Quit eating just one cookie, a soda, or a glass of wine and you will

lose 12 pounds in a year.

Want to lose more than just 1 pound a month?

You love doing a lot of cardio in your workouts, well running or doing

the famous elliptical burns hundreds of calories, but your metabolism

slows down almost instantly when you stop.

Try doing more strength training, which will continue burning fat for hours.

By doing a regular weight lifting regiment it can boost your metabolic

rate by about 15 percent.

Health experts recommend doing some type of strength training three

times a week for 45- to 50 minutes.

Our bodies are pretty smart — it knows when it’s not getting any nutrients.

So that every time we munch on processed foods like potato chips

or doughnuts, we’ll still be hungry.

It's better to regularly eat fruits, vegetables, fish, low-fat dairy,

and whole grains.

For breakfast skip the sugary cereals.

They’re too easily digested, which means they speed through

your system.

Go for an egg-white omelet without the toast.

Try unsweetened Greek yogurt with fruit and a dollop of honey,

or a piece of string cheese.

Never skip a meal.

That will only set you up to overeat. Instead nosh on small portions

every three to four hours to keep your metabolism running.

Otherwise your body will panic, and go into starvation mode,

which means it will burn calories much more efficiently much like

when you haven’t eaten in a while.

Stress also is a major fat producer and increases your blood pressure

but let's stick to diet tips.

It can cause the body to start stockpiling fat in the gut.

If your system thinks a crisis is coming, it will begin depositing fat

cells into the belly because it’s the most convenient storage space.

So chill out do some quiet meditation, try yoga, or get a much

needed massage.

If you’re a stress eater, keep healthy snacks such as almonds

or carrots on hand to prevent junk-food binges.

Did you know that lack of sleep will increase the likelihood

that you’ll gain weight?

When you’re tired, the hormones that stimulate appetite increase,

while the hormones that help you feel full plummet.

Aim for seven to eight hours a night.

You have to move your body.

All those gadgets, computers, TVs, video games, and cars keep

us glued to our seats.

To trim our tummies, we have to do whatever we can to keep moving.

Even a short 15 minute walk can help.

Don't think you have 15 minutes, another study I read says that you

can burn up to 350 calories a day by walking around when you’re

on the phone, tapping your toes when you’re surfing the Web,

or doing squats when you’re brushing your teeth.

Before you know it, you’ll be see more pounds come off.

Make it a healthier día!
