Weight gain or obesity has become a worldwide concern. People across the globe are trying to combat lifestyle related issues to keep their weight down. It is possible to naturally lose weight over a period of time if you change a few eating habits and your lifestyle a bit. This will help you achieve your goal of becoming healthy once again.

Eat Whole Grains

It is better to eat food made from whole grain cereals, such as chapatis, multi-grain bread, whole grain and oatmeal cookies rather than refined food. In addition to helping the body metabolise more and for food to be digested rapidly, it’s best to consume fibre which is present in whole grains. They also provide energy for a longer period of time, so your body gets energy all day. They also reduce hunger and sugar cravings.

Choose Your Food Wisely

Be extra vigilant when selecting food for yourself. Your body needs unsaturated fats and essential fatty acids for basic functioning. Food products labelled low fat or low sugar will contain more calories than necessary. You will lose weight if you take products without sugar, which will keep your calorie intake low and keep you healthy.

Drink Water To Lose Weight

Try to sip on some water right before lunch or supper, every time you are about to eat or are feeling hungry. This is a quick and easy way to quickly curb a little of your hunger. Furthermore, drinking more water boosts metabolism and gives you a feeling of being full.

Burn Those Sugars 

It is okay to have sweets or sugary things for breakfast. This will help you use these calories throughout the day. Still, since excess of anything is bad, try to eat less sugar and processed foods.


In order to shed weight, you don't need heavy exercises or an exercise plan. Climbing up and down the stairs is a great key exercise that tones hips, legs and thighs. You can also walk to the market, walk about while speaking on your cell phone, and keep yourself more active overall. If you can ensure walking for 5 - 7 mins after every meal, this too will help consume calories and help in shedding weight over time.

So what are you waiting for? Start today and you will be able to lose weight easily if you follow these basic tips.
