Here are some of the easiest tips that you can use to lose weight at a safe rate:
Don’t Skip Breakfast: In the morning, our energy stores run out and thus our body begins to save energy and burn fewer calories. Breakfast skippers were 4 1/2 times more likely to be obese than breakfast eaters. For more long-lasting energy, include whole grain complex carbohydrates like oatmeal.

Throw in a cup of halved strawberries: Research suggests that getting enough vitamin C — 75 mg a day — may be essential for optimal fat burning. The strawberries provide 90 mg.

Get a dose of sunlight: Exposure to bright light decreases melatonin and increases serotonin, shifting our body from sleep to awake mode and, thus help use up calories saved in our body.

Take your multivitamin: Antioxidant nutrients help protect mitochondria, tiny structures found in every cell, from damage; they’re the microscopic fat-burning furnaces that convert food into fuel.

Move at the office: Moving throughout the day — even if it’s just walking to a colleague’s office rather than sending an e-mail — keeps your metabolism higher than doing a workout and then remaining sedentary.

Sip a cup of coffee or tea: Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant that moderately boosts metabolism, helping you burn about 20 extra calories.

Have a midmorning snack: Good choices are a reduced-fat cheese stick or a cup of low-fat yogurt and a piece of fruit. Every time you eat, your body burns additional calories to digest the food. Take advantage of this automatic boost by eating something — even if it’s very small — every 3 to 4 hours.

Stretch at your desk: Counter the metabolism-depressing effects of midday stress by boosting circulation and easing upper-body tension. And take deep breaths while you stretch to provide cells with the energy-producing oxygen they need to burn fat.

Chair reach and drop: Sit on edge of chair, feet flat, back straight. Extend arms overhead, palms facing each other, and gently arch back as far as comfortable. Hold 1 to 2 seconds, then sit back up and lower arms out to sides.

As always, please feel free to leave suggestions, ask any questions for help or simply discuss the topic. We highly appreciate your involvement and input everyday. If find it helpful, please share it with your friends by using one of the buttons below.
