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:

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.

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.

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.

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.


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.

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.

Consume Fiber-Rich Foods

Fiber-packed foods prevent the body from craving unhealthy products and keep the fullness sensation for a longer period of time. Fiber, especially viscous fiber, is especially relevant to the weight loss process.

Include more fiber-based foods, including oat cereals, flax seeds, beans, Brussels sprouts, oranges, and asparagus.

Consume Whole Grains

A wide range of whole grains, including brown rice, buckwheat, oats, and barley, can contribute to the weight loss process. You can achieve the same with other products, like English muffins, pizza crust, waffles, and waffles.

Reduce Sugary Drinks

Reduce the intake of regular soda and replace it with tea or water. If you find this difficult, add some citrus fruit or mint to spring or carbonated water for a taste treat.
