Losing weight is not only a “trending topic” in the good days.

1-The lemon, your best friend

Lemon pectin is ideal for controlling your weight. Of course, regular consumption of lemon won’t magically make you lose weight, but the pectin contained in lemon can help you limit your cravings for snacks and reduce the feeling of hunger.

In addition, the flavonoids present in this wonderful citrus fruit act on fats in the blood. Lemon also promotes the elimination of toxins from the body and the rapid breakdown of food.

It also has alkalizing, antiseptic, depurative, and disinfectant benefits. Great for winter colds!

And cherry (or lemon) on the cake, gives you maximum energy to do more sports.

The right thing to do: Simply pour the juice of a fresh lemon (preferably organic) into a glass of warm water and drink it on an empty stomach every morning.

2-Control the quantities

If dieting isn’t your thing, you can easily control the amount you eat without giving up what you like.

For example, when cooking, use a spoonful of less oil.

When you’re snacking in front of the TV, take a chocolate bar or two cookies and leave the package in the kitchen. It’s much less tempting!

At the end of the meal, instead of leaving the cheese tray in front of your nose, take two or three pieces from your plate and put the tray back in the fridge.

Of course, this does not apply to the Christmas cheese board!

The right thing to do: Forget about kitchen scales and other “rationing” tools, which are restrictive over time. Just think about reducing the quantities a little bit, and you will quickly notice a difference!

3-Get some exercise

I can already see you making a face. And yet, exercise is one of the best tips for losing weight without dieting.

Just increase the intensity and/or frequency of your workouts. If working out costs you money, there are other activities you can do to burn calories. Take the stairs instead of the elevator.

Or walk to work (if that’s not possible, get off 2-3 bus or subway stops early). In short, live an active lifestyle.

The right thing to do: Clean the house thoroughly more often. Not only will you burn calories, but you’ll also have a spotless interior. It’s a win-win situation!

4-The right timing for meals

Respect your biological clock and try to eat every day at the same time or close to it.

Most importantly, take the time to eat. There is nothing worse for your figure than a meal on the run or stress.

A meal eaten too quickly will not satisfy you, because the stomach transmits the feeling of satiety after 20 minutes.

The right thing to do: Chew, chew, chew! You may have heard your grandmother say that you should chew each bite 50 times. Without going that far, chewing between 10 and 20 times is already great!

5-Be patient

If you don’t want to go on a diet, the results will take a little time to show up.

The advantage is that they will last and you will avoid the “yo-yo” effect. Above all, don’t get discouraged.

The tips in this article are designed to help you lose weight without dieting over the long term and to help you adopt good habits for a healthier lifestyle without radically changing your lifestyle.

The right thing to do: Weigh yourself once a week. If you have lost even 100 grams, you are on the right track!
