Weight loss is not just about workouts and diet. It is what you do the rest of the day that counts as well. Anyone can lose weight without going to the gym as it’s all about determination and setting goals.

#1 Workout through the day

For starters, you have to increase your activity during the day. Take the stairs instead of riding the elevator, and park in the spot farthest from your home/building that can allow you a little walk. Make small lifestyle changes like walking while you’re on the phone. And even if you don’t engage in a specific form of exercise, try and get at least 30 minutes of cardio daily. This can be any activity that raises your heart rate or leaves you breathless. Running, jogging, swimming, cycling, walking, etc are all good choices.

#2 Adopt clean eating habits

Your daily diet should focus on natural foods; cut down all processed foods like pasta, pizzas, maida (refined flour) items, sugar and sugary items, etc. Don’t have to avoid them completely or you may wind up craving them more than usual, but eat in moderation and on occasions. Eating on time every day is equally important. Never skip breakfast – it boosts your metabolism and keeps you alert throughout the day; eat fruits and nuts when you feel like snacking.

#3 Sleep on time

Lack of sleep can cause you to eat more throughout the day and not have enough energy, so aim for seven to nine hours of sleep every night. So try ensuring you go to bed at the same time every night.

A combination of all these factors can definitely help you shed the kilos.
