Weight loss is the number one priority of most people who start exercising or doing some kind of physical fitness regimen. But many don’t see the results they wish to see and want quick weight loss. There are some important points to keep in mind when you are exercising and following a diet that could help you lose weight faster. Try following some of these slightly unusual ways to lose weight quickly:

The temperature of the water you drink and take bath with matters: According to Ayurveda experts, drinking hot water helps boost metabolism because hot water enables better digestion and elimination of toxins. Drinking hot water first thing in the morning and throughout the day is known to keep problems like bloating, indigestion and constipation away. Do you know that warm water can also help reduce hunger by increasing your satiety levels after meals? While drinking hot water is amazing for weight loss, when it comes to showers, it is cold water that is known to up your metabolism and promotes weight loss.

Exercise during the day: Many fitness trainers often suggest that mornings, right after we wake up and before we eat anything, are the best time to exercise for optimum weight loss results. Some studies suggest that this is because your body is able to burn calories faster in the morning when your stomach is relatively empty. Besides, morning is a time when your motivation levels are likely to be at their peak.

Eat in blue plates: Did you know blue colour actually helps suppress appetite? Some studies suggest that eating in blue plates can help you lose weight. Also, make sure your plates are small. Bigger plates make you pile on more food and hence more calories whereas smaller plates will make you eat less and hence help you lose weight.

Eat junk food in front of a mirror: A study by the University of Central Florida stated that eating junk food in front of a mirror makes you eat less and helps promote weight loss. The premise of the study is that you are likely to feel guilty when looking at yourself eating unhealthy food!

Get a workout partner: Having a friend along to work out with will help motivate you to work out harder. A workout buddy will also help on days you don’t feel like leaving your bed and heading to the gym. Comparing your results with each other, setting each other up for work out challenges will help you exercise better and make gymming more fun!
