Although we would all prefer to have the time for a regular training practice and a strict diet, it’s just that the hours of the day are sometimes too short.

However, there are many things you can do to contribute to a healthier lifestyle, without starving yourself or feeling guilty about missing out on your workout schedule.

Take a look at these 40 ways in which you can get rid of excess weight and still stay fit:

  1. Eat slowly

Overeating can happen to anyone, but the trick is to eat slowly and make the time of 15-25 minutes to eat properly. In such way, the body hormones are stimulated faster which later encourages better digestion.

  1. Stair climbing

Burning calories has never been as easy as with stair climbing. Take a few minutes per day to commit to this practice and make the most of it each and every time. You can also use stairs to stretch properly.

  1. A good-night’s sleep

As per many studies, sleeping has a lot to do with the weight loss process. Experts from the University of Michigan showed that if you add just one more hour to your sleep, you can amount up to 13 pound weight loss. This applies to people who consume no more than 2,500 calories per day.

  1. Focus on vegetables :

More vegetables means faster digestion, which ultimately leads to faster weight loss. Steer clear of dressings that contain plenty of fats but go well with your veggies. Make sure to choose vegetables rich in water, fiber and plenty of vitamins and minerals.

  1. Soup

Soup represents a healthy way of staying full without consuming unnecessary fats. Bone soup or stew is highly recommended, especially if it’s combined with a handful of healthy veggies. Some other good options are tortilla soup, wonton, or minestrone.

  1. Consume Protein-Rich Foods

Proteins are crucial for the everyday diet. Proteins are able to boost the weight loss process, while suppressing cravings and hunger.

There is a variety of protein-rich foods you could use, such as almonds, chicken breasts, quinoa, lentils, Greek yogurt, and fish.
