powerfit 12 insane weight loss tips

Losing weight can be difficult enough, without all that contradicting info out there! Follow our scientifically proven weight loss diet tips to build a healthy relationship with food and feel happy within your body. 

1.Drink Water! 

Water is as near to a cure-all as you can get! It lubricates all your organs, including your brain and your digestive system. It helps clear out toxins and other stuff your body doesn’t need, and leaves your skin looking plump and clear. Need we say more! Aim for 2 litres per day. 

2. Don’t drink your calories 

White Choc Mocha Frappucinno? No thanks! Those fancy coffees, milkshakes, and soft drinks can use up a fair whack of your total daily calories- so why do it? Stick to low or no calorie drinks, or good ol’ water. See above. 

3. Eat Fat 

Yaass queen! Fat is essential for healthy hormones and a healthy brain. Contrary to popular belief- it isn’t dietary fat itself that goes into fat on the bod. It’s only if you eat more calories than you burn that our body will deposit fat. So aim for healthy fats at every meal- nuts, seeds, and avocado are great choices. 

4.Don’t Restrict Carbs 

Pasta! Bread! Potatoes! Have at it! Carbs are absolutely necessary for bodily functions, particularly if you’re into exercising. By definition aerobic exercise uses carbs as energy. So aim to include complex carbs at most meals- things like wholemeal pasta and grainy bread, fruit, and legumes. 

5.Get Enough Fibre 

We want you to be regular! It’s a sign of a healthy gut. Not only that but fibre keeps you fuller for longer and helps those little microflora in your gut biome. Your what? The good bacteria that can actually affect mood and hunger. Aim for a minimum of 25g fibre per day. 

6.Eat your veggies 

Do we really need to say this?? Vegetables add vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and also volume to your meals. That means it feels like you’re eating more, but without the added calories! Aim for 5 serves of vegetables or legumes per day. 

7.High protein 

Get your protein in! Protein is so important to keep you fuller for longer, and help maintain muscle mass while dieting.  Not only that but protein will help with hormones and digestive enzymes, AND raise your metabolism. Include foods like lean chicken, lean beef, Greek yoghurt, peanut butter and legumes. 

8.Use smaller plates 

Think you just eat what you do because you’re hungry? Wrong! You eat what’s on your plate. Therefore- use smaller plates, bowls, and cups, and you’ll eat and drink less. It’s proven! 

9.No distractions 

Get away from the TV and the noisy rellies, and enjoy your food. Savour it. When you’re mindful about your food you don’t need to eat as much. So put your phone away and step away from your desk. 

10. Meal prep 

Hand-down a life saver! Instead of cooking one serve- why not cook four? Plan your week and portion out your snacks to make sure when you’re hungry you’ll reach for the good stuff. When life gets in the way and you don’t get home until 8pm, how good is it to have your dinner already made? Leaves no excuses for takeaway! 

11. Avoid Fads 

It can be very tempting when we see a 2 week diet promising to melt away the kilos. Or a way of eating that cures all your health issues. But there’s a reason they seem too good to be true! Never give up your favourite foods or entire food groups.
