The well-known Dr. Mehmet Oz, host of the program “Dr. Oz Show” has identified 5 habits that by eliminating them from your daily life and without representing greater sacrifices, you can lose 10 pounds in a short time.
1. Removes sodas
Only by eliminating soda drinks can you be saving a lot of calories every day.
A 12-ounce can of a regular soda brings 155 calories. If you get used to taking about two cans a day, you’ll be eliminating 300 calories a day from your diet, about 9,300 calories a month, which is equivalent to a loss of about 3.31 pounds (1.5 kilos).
Dr. Oz advises them to be phased out of your diet so that you don’t fall into temptation and become a habit of life.
2. Eliminate snacks at night
Dr. Oz considers that people who get used to itching at night tend to gain 19 pounds a year, just for this detail. He claims that people who have this habit often eat calorie-filled food and do not measure the amounts they eat.
Make your last meal, at least three hours before you go to sleep. If you usually eat out of boredom, prepare a routine that will keep you busy, like watching a movie that keeps you in attention, talking on the phone with people entertaining or reading a book that you are passionate about, and if at any time you are assailed by hunger, half glass of skim milk and warm that will take away the hunger and in addition, will help you to sleep better and only gives you about 43 calories.
3. Move for 10 minutes
Moving just an extra 10 minutes a day helps you lose weight and improve your health.
The good thing is that 10 minutes you can get it very easily. Get off your desk and do a couple of turns in your office, go upstairs instead of using the elevator, walk your house once or twice, and you’ve already added 10 minutes of exercise a day.
4. Reduce the size of your portions
Reducing the size of the dishes you eat will mean that you will eat much less calories each day , which will result in weight loss.
You don’t have to change what you eat, you can still enjoy what you like, it just diminishes the size of the portions. If what you want to eat comes in large containers, instead of eating directly from the bag or box where they come from, place an appropriate amount – not more than a fist – on a plate and enjoy your favorite dishes.
5. Weigh daily
Running away from the scale can only make you gain weight – eyes that do not see, heart that does not feel – however if you know your weight and realize that you have increased one or two pounds, it will be easier for you to take steps to lose them than if you suddenly realize that you have increased 8, 10 or 15 pounds.
