3. Skipping Meals
Many of us believe that skipping a meal could greatly benefit our diet and speed up the process of getting to our desired weight.
That is so wrong! For starters skipping a meal slows down our metabolism and signals our body to store fat due to hunger. This in turn leads to weight gain.
Also, a study has shown that when we do not eat at the proper time and allow our bodies to go hungry, there is a greater chance of us over eating on our next meal.
Also, we are less likely to choose what we eat, causing us to eat anything and everything on sight.
Still planning to skip breakfast tomorrow morning?? We suggest eating a balanced diet and at the proper time. You boost your metabolism that way and eat healthily as well.
4. Pulling All Nighters
Look, working all night and cutting down on your sleeping hours will not do you any good.
Sleep gives you the energy you need to make it through your day. It also keeps you thinking on your toes. Plus, best benefit, it helps you slim down.
How? Lacking sleep robs you of the energy you need to keep yourself active. Your body also finds ways to compensate and usually eating more is the answer.
Want to keep yourself eating and feeling right? Have 6-8 hours of sleep per night.
5. Sitting All The Time
You need to get moving!
If you’re stuck working in a desk all day, you’ve got to get creative.
Take breaks in between work to move around. Grab your own coffee or deliver your own work to the boss.
Stay active throughout your day and you’ll see a change in your figure in no time.
