Is it possible to lose weight without going on a diet? Read on and we'll reveal to you the secrets in a few moments.

Time your Meals

Before you enjoy that first bite, set a timer for 20 minutes. Now, savor your meal, eat slower and delay your last bite until the alarm rings. This is the best way to lose weight without going through a complicated diet regimen.

Serve more Fruits and Vegetables

At meal time, try to serve at least 2-3 dishes of fruits and vegetables instead of just one. This way, you'll eat more of them without even trying. As we all know, fruits and vegetables are weight loss foods thus, helping you shed some pounds.

Start your Meals with Soup

Add soup to your meals and take in lesser calories. Soup is especially recommended to be taken in before meals as it slows down your eating time and controls your appetite. Choose a low-sodium soup and add a splash of greens on it. Avoid creamy soups as they are high in fat and calories.

Stack up on Whole Grains

Munching up on whole grain would be an introduction to a healthy eating plan. This is the most recommended among the array of starches as it helps you feel satiated with lesser calories. Also, it is also beneficial for your cholesterol profile.

Get your Smaller Clothes Out

Hang your old dress which you used to love and be sure to place it somewhere you can see on a daily basis. This will keep you motivated to lose weight. So, just when you shed a few pounds take this dress and be proud to be able to wear it again.

Make your Own Pizza
