7 Daily Habits To Lose Weight

Lose weight is a long and arduous process. But, it only takes some daily habit to lose weight. So, forget those fancy fad diets and arduous gym workouts. Focus more on the small daily habits that will shape your life. These small steps in life take you a long way to success. 


Small day-to-day changes can make you lose weight. But, you need to understand that it takes time to form a habit. A study by Phillippa Lally shows that it takes an average of two months for a habit to become automatic. 


Here are our top 7 daily habits that can tone down our weight. 


Have adequate sleep

Lack of sleep is the cause of the hunger hormone ghrelin. It also hampers the production of the satisfaction hormone leptin. This unholy cycle will result in weight loss. Let me explain how it happens.  When your hunger hormone is high and satisfaction hormone is low, you go for salty and sweet foods. The reason behind that is, your body needs high calory to meet this situation. So, you go for those tasty chips and cold drinks. This leads to weight gain. So, get adequate sleep and let your body felt refreshed when you woke up in the morning.

Never ever shop hungry

A supermarket is not always what you seem it is. The products inside are carefully planned and shelved. It always gives you minute psychological hints to buy those products. This strategy is mostly applied with salty and sweet foods. So, when going shopping you need to have a clear mind. Going to shop hungry is certainly not one of them. Your body already needs high calory at that moment. You will shop for heavy and high calory foods if you shop hungry.

Never miss the first meal, breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We miss breakfast due to lack of time or laziness. It is a big issue. You will get very hungry by lunchtime and eat like you were famished. This is one of the primary reasons you gain weight. You stay hungry and eat more.

Never eat till full

Follow the 80% rule when eating. Pack the extra food for later. It will contribute to your weight loss process. This is a simple rule. If you are not completely full you always remain productive. It becomes tough to move around when you are 100% full.

Choose a smaller plate

Choose a small plate. Sound so simple but has a big psychological significance. When you use a small plate, the same amount you daily consume will seem more. You will get a no signal from your brain when you see a full plate. It will also increase satiety level.

Choose food wisely

We all know that salty and sweet food tastes heavenly. But avoid them if you want to lose weight. Swap the unhealthy ones for healthy substitutes. Swap bread for whole grain and unsalted for salted versions. 

Choose food wisely


Move whenever you can

Be always on the move as it will help you lose calory resulting in weight loss. Walk around when not busy. Move your shoulders and feet when being seated. It will keep you healthy and happy.
