How To Lose Weight Without Going To The Gym.

Even if you ignore all the fad diets you see on TV (since they are just geared at selling something), you’d still have a myriad of options regarding real ways to successfully lose weight without ever stepping foot into a gym. In this article, we’re going to share some time-tested techniques to do just that.

 

#1 – Apple Cider Vinegar

If you’ve been on the internet, you have probably heard about this so-called “miracle drink”. It’s known to help acne, improve your hair and skin health, and of course, help you lose weight. Except, it doesn’t directly attack fat cells, instead, it helps your body burn fat by helping it process insulin (even if you’re not diabetic, it’s likely you are insulin resistant to some degree, which means you have extra insulin and your bloodstream, which in turn, leads to weight gain).

 

The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar is really the “magic ingredient”, and some people report losing up to 14 pounds in 2 weeks by simply adding 1 tablespoon to a glass of water and drinking it three times a day, before each meal.

 

#2 – Intermittent Fasting

If you were thinking that “calorie restriction” would be on this list, think again. In recent years, Intermittent Fasting (or IF) has risen to glory as it allows you to eat within a certain period of time, called your “eating window”, while the rest of the day and night your body is in a fasting state where it is running on your reserves (i.e., the fat your body is storing).

 

People who follow IF tend to have great results, some don’t even change their diets while others still make that crucial transition to eating healthier. Either way, only eating during certain windows (like from 11 AM to 7 PM) allows you to still feel full and eat what you want without overindulging. The idea is to eat normally, just squash all your meals into that timeframe. The benefits range from weight loss to improved overall health and cognitive function.

 

#3 – Change The Little Things

There’s a popular quote that makes its rounds on just about every weight loss blog out there: “Success lies in your daily routine.” If you don’t make a lasting change to the bad habits you follow each and every day, you’re going to end up a yo-yo dieter. Psychologists agree, since it takes about three weeks of doing something to make it a habit, here’s the approach to take:

 

Choose a bad habit in your life that you can swap for a good habit. Maybe, rather than drinking your coffee with all that sugar and cream, swap it for a smoothie, shake, or tea drink that you really like that has less calories, carbs, and/or sugar. Allow yourself to incorporate this habit, and then pick another small habit to change. This way, you will comfortably begin building up to a healthier lifestyle while losing weight.
