10 Diet Hacks That Will Make Losing Weight Even Easier

Being able to adhere to a diet makes it a much more effective weight-loss tool. When you combine the effects of a closely followed diet with regular exercise, then you can expect to see quite dramatic weight loss results. But one thing at a time. Let's give you the lowdown on 10 diet hacks that will make sticking to yours and losing weight even easier.

1. Drink more water. Before you cut that wedge of brie or dig into a bag of chips, try drinking a big glass of water first. Sometimes our minds and bodies confuse hunger with thirst, so that nice cold glass of water might just be what you need to avoid consuming some extra and unnecessary calories.

2. Have a kitchen cutoff time. Mindless eating, especially that which occurs in front of the TV while watching our favourite shows, can be one of the most destructive things for a diet. Try to institute a cutoff time for your kitchen where no food or snacks are allowed to leave past a certain point in the evening. And if you must snack, go with low fat or low-calorie options.

3. Actually eat your favourite foods. While this hack may sound counterintuitive to achieving your weight loss goals, it's actually not. By limiting the intake of your favourite foods as opposed to completely cutting them out, you're more likely to stick with your diet. And because you aren't restricting yourself entirely from what you love to eat, you're less likely to break down and eat a whole container of ice cream or bag of chips when you can't handle the restrictiveness anymore.

4. Try to eat protein with every meal. Protein is the macronutrient that will fill you up better than any other type of nutrient, and it will keep you full longer than carbs or fat can. It also helps keep your metabolic rate high, which means you burn more calories and fat after consuming it.

The Two Best Nutrients for Weight Loss

5. Don't skip breakfast. You might think by skipping a meal you'll have a better chance of losing weight. That's not what the science says. Studies have shown that by skipping breakfast, people can actually put on weight because they tend to overeat during lunch and dinner. 

6. Get rid of all the tempting food that's bad for you. If you still have the foods that got you into trouble residing in your pantry or fridge, you're making your attempts at losing weight a lot harder than they need to be. Purge the chips and ice cream from your home, and you won't be able to eat them. It's as simple as that.

7. Don't try to lose a lot of weight right away. If your weight loss is not happening as rapidly as you would like, don't get upset or discouraged. Remember that you didn't put the weight on right away, it took time. Losing it will too. Aim for about a pound or two each week and keep the course. Don't forget, the tortoise ends up beating the hare.

8. Only weigh yourself once a week. Those who weigh themselves regularly tend to see the best weight loss results. But there is such a thing as weighing yourself too frequently. Experts say you should try to weigh yourself only once a week. That way, you won't be thrown asunder by the daily fluctuations that are bound to occur. Aim to weigh yourself at the same time of day, on the same day of the week, while wearing the clothes you were in the last time you weighed yourself.

9. Make sure you're sleeping enough. If you're not getting enough sleep, you may find it a lot harder to stick to your diet. That's because sleep-deprived people end up overproducing the appetite-stimulating hormone ghrelin and don't produce enough leptin, which is the hormone that lets you know you're full.

10. Only drink alcohol on the weekends. Alcoholic beverages are the ultimate empty calories. They don't possess any nutritional value and the empty calories they contain can quickly turn into fat. If you enjoy imbibing, try to limit your alcohol consumption to only the weekend and try to indulge with just one or two drinks.

By applying the 10 diet hacks listed above to your everyday life, you'll find it's easier to stick to your current diet and lose the weight you've been wanting to shed for so long.
