Losing weight may feel like a never-ending process that sucks up all your willpower but there are several ways to make it less tormenting. You may have gone Paleo, sentenced yourself to a 3-month sweaty, ‘low-everything’ diet and yet you always relapse and go back to your same old self as soon as you come out of your self-inflicted 3-month prison, which puts you right back where you started. This turns into a cycle and you find yourself most of the year in that same prison.
You may think the problem is your weak will or that this is just how your body is and you will always have six months of indulgence and six months of imprisonment for the rest of your life. However, this is not true. If you begin to accept that the problem is not your willpower but your reluctance to change your lifestyle, you will finally be able to do something about it. Believe it or not, you don’t have to keep torturing yourself with your cycle. Simple everyday lifestyle hacks in your daily routine could help you cut 200 calories every day!
Here are some of them:
|Abstain from:||Substitute it with:|
|Orange Juice||Infused Water|
|Barbeque Sauce||Spice Rubs|
|Potato chips||Kale Chips|
