Although having a good body shape is nice and can increase individual confidence, Being in good health is all that matters. Therefore, losing fat is not only for your shape but for your overall health in the first place. and there are some habits you should do to easily lose fat:

1. Sugar

By only cutting down your daily sugar intake you can achieve good progress at losing weight. Artificial sugar isn’t beneficial for your body at all and counts a lot of calories for nothing. Besides, it depresses immune function, accelerates aging, and increases the risk of stress, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.


honey

 

Simply we just can replace it for a natural one as white or black honey, fruits rich in sugar or even stop it completely if possible.

2. Oil

Palm oil has nearly 50% of saturated fats which are unhealthy fats. These fats are most often solid at room temperature as well as in your body. Therefore, they are hard to burn and bad for your health. Some studies link the consumption of palm oil to increased ischemic heart disease, raised low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and other adverse effects. We can replace it with olive oil or coconut oil as both have nearly full of unsaturated healthy fats that have huge benefits. Otherwise, we can simply replace “ oil “ by “ boil “, just boiling your meals could solve the issue.

3. Vegetables 

The more green you eat, the leaner you get. In addition to having important micronutrients as iron, magnesium, calcium, they are also high in antioxidants as vitamin A that is good for building your body’s natural defenses, vitamin C for more vital skin and stronger bones, and vitamin K to help your body in healing. Greens are an excellent source of fibers, aiding in digestion and slowing down the rates of sugar absorption. This prevents sharp rises in blood glucose.

High protein meals

By eating high protein meals we could:  

    •          Reduce appetite and hunger status.
    •          Enhance metabolism and increase fat burning          
    •          Increase muscle mass and improve our strength
    •          Thicken our bones 
    •          Improve tissue regeneration after injuries.





Meals as chickens, eggs, fish, nuts, brown rice, and protein shakes are excellent sources of protein nowadays.

5. Sleep

Adults who get a 
sufficient amount of sleep at night have better control over their cravings and appetite than adults who suffer sleepless nights. This is because the less sleep you get, the more your hormones that regulate hunger are badly affected. Therefore, bad sleep is a contributing factor to weight gain and obesity. At least 6 hours of sleep at night can improve your health both physically and mentally.

 

6. Water




According to my own experience, the best way to lose the excess water from our bodies (that simulates excess fat) is called “Water Triangle “. The triangle has a base of carbohydrates and salts with water resembling its apex. This means that we can get rid of water by drinking more water (2 up to 4 liters maximum), decreasing salts, and/or carbs. Getting rid of that excess water can help to decrease our weight and look more physique.

7. Exercise

Last but not least, exercising doesn’t mean that you have to be stuck at the gym for 6 days a week doing weight lifting (which is very ideal). Exercise equals an increase in our metabolism throughout the day and we can do that simply by walking, moving at home, home push-ups, getting upstairs, running in place for 5 minutes, cooking, or even playing with children. You actually need to get your body of this place of laziness “your bed” I mean.
