Dieting is not recommended as the best way to lose weight. Since dieting recommends a temporary change in the eating pattern, which results in a temporary effect. When dieters revert to their original eating habits, they start to gain weight.

So, how can we reduce excess weight? Change the status quo!

When people make small changes to their daily routines to make healthier choices, they are more likely to achieve long-term weight loss success. The following are the five strategies for achieving this goal:

# 1 – Never Skip Breakfast

It should come as no surprise that many people consider breakfast the most important meal of the day. As the name indicates, breakfast is a meal that breaks the fast that has been established overnight. It increases metabolic rate and aids in burning calories for the rest of the day. Breakfast skippers feel restless later in the day, leading them to overeat.
 

# 2 – Portion Control

Consider the size of the serving carefully. Large meals contain a high number of calories, and the extra calories contribute to weight gain. Furthermore, a diet high in sweetened drinks, including fruit drinks, cold drinks, and energy drinks, is a major source of empty calories. Having smaller quantities and going for water or low-fat milk instead of soda is the best way to stay hydrated.

# 3 – Include Fruits and Vegetable in Your Diet

Vegetables and fruits should be taken in five serving portions each day. It is also considered one of the most efficient weight loss tips. Minerals and vitamins such as vitamin C, folate, and potassium are found in abundance in these foods. Plus, they are tasty, and there are several choices to select from. In addition to nutrients, there are other reasons also to consume them. They are also full of fibre, which keeps them fuller for longer periods, making you less tempted to overeat.

# 4 – Reduce screen time in front of a screen

Obesity is linked to excessive screen time. Reducing screen time spent playing video games, watching television, and using computers, tablets, and phones for non-school and non-office-related activities is an excellent way to start. Furthermore, it frees up additional time for regular exercise and getting enough sleep every night.

#  5– Protein is required for life

It is a structural component of every human cell. It is involved in all of the human body’s critical metabolic operations. It is especially particularly important for growth, development, and tissue repair. A high-protein diet can assist people in losing weight by preventing them from overeating. When paired with exercise, a high-protein diet can aid in the development of lean muscles. Lean muscles aid in the burning of more calories throughout the day, which can aid in the reduction of body fat.

Physical activity regularly might help you be healthy and better. Plus, it aids in the burning of calories and muscle strengthening. Exercises such as walking with a puppy, cycling and engaging in other fitness activities increase your daily level of activity and help you maintain a healthy weight. Raise the exercise intensity and add fitness equipment in training to help you grow muscle. It also helps you burn more calories in the long term. Even if you’re not exercising, having more muscle mass raises your metabolic rate.
