Weight Loss in 30 Seconds

You may think that weight loss in 30 seconds is all but impossible, and you'd be absolutely right. Weight loss takes a lot of work, and the truth is that you have to put in hours of hard work every day if you want to see results. But the simple 30-second actions below will help to increase your chances of losing weight, ensuring that you have a better chance of dropping those last few pounds effectively.

Drink Water
You don't have to drink gallons of water every day, but increasing your water consumption is a good way to boost weight loss. Spend 30 seconds at your water cooler just drinking water, pounding as much "sky juice" as you can down in that half-minute. Do this a few times every day, and you'll start to feel much better and kick that weight loss into high gear!

Grab a Snack of Nuts
When you feel those hunger pangs kicking in, it's tempting to grab something quick and easy to stop your stomach from growling. But unless you haven't eaten in a few hours, it's just your mouth wanting something tasty. To deal with both your food cravings and your hunger, grab a handful of pistachios or almonds. In-shell pistachios require effort to eat, occupying your mind and body. Almonds are the healthiest of the nuts, making a GREAT, filling snack.

Distract Yourself
If you find yourself craving something, take 30 seconds out of your time to run around the house, flick through TV channels, or play a game on your phone. You'll find that even a slight distraction can help to take your mind off your hunger, and will keep you from snacking on the wrong thing at the wrong time.

Chop Your Food
Did you know that cutting your food into smaller pieces actually helps you to eat less? A study in Japan discovered that people THINK they are eating more food when it is cut into smaller pieces and piled high, rather than just carving away at a chicken breast or steak. It takes just a few seconds to cut your meal into smaller pieces, but it will help you fool your mind into eating less.

Add Seeds
When serving yourself a bowl of oats, yoghurt, salad, or pretty much anything else, why not sprinkle a few flax, sesame seeds over the top? Not only will it help you to fill up, but you'll add A LOT of fibre and protein to your meals.
