Drink warm lemon water in the morning as soon as you wake up. This will kick start your metabolism and help you lose weight without you making any extra efforts. Additionally lemon is proven to flush out toxins and enrich your body with vitamin C.
Stretch as soon as you wake up. This will help keep your muscles flexible, strong, and healthy. It will also energize you and make you less lethargic during the day. Stretching is also a form of exercise that warms up your body and cuts body fat.
Eat light meals during the evening. Consuming high amounts of carbs and fats during the later hours of the day is one of the major reasons for weight gain. Try to consume light meals during evening and night to remain fit and healthy.
Stand while you can. Standing burns more calories than sitting so stand in public transports and offer your seat to people who require it more than you do. Get up often from your desk and catch up with your colleagues in standing up meetings as compared to the traditional sitting ones.
