27 Easy And Surprisingly Effective Weight Loss Tips

24. Only eat when you’re actually hungry.

“This might sound like a joke but one thing that really worked for me was when I only ate if I was hungry.

If I pack a lunch of a sandwich, and apple, and a yogurt, then I would wait until I was hungry to eat the sandwich (even if I was taking my lunch at 3), but I would leave the apple and yogurt until I felt hungry again. Then I might eat the apple at 4:30, and I would be home before I finish my lunch. I ended up eating much less and more spaced out. I dropped weight pretty quickly.”


25. Cut out carbs, increase fats.

“Cut out any bread/wheat/rice/spaghetti type carbs and high sugar fruit like bananas, apples, and oranges, and increase cheese/eggs and animal fats. Carbs give you cravings for more carbs so you’re always hungry, but if you eat a high-fat diet, you won’t feel so hungry and can eat a lot less. Do watch out for fiber and water intake though because a high fat/protein diet will harden things up in the bowel area.

My old boss did this and in the 6 months after he left work, I did not recognize him when I saw him again. He was around 150kg when he left work, and when I saw him again was around 70kg. I met up with him one day and was staring straight at him talking on the phone and didn’t realize it was him.”
