6 Best Tips To Lose Weight Successfully at Home

I know losing weight is not easy but at the same time not impossible. Being something not easy does not mean the thing is not simple. The problem is that people fail to make weight loss more complex due to a lack of knowledge and motivation.

So your first target to make your weight loss possible is to make it simple with some basic knowledge and some motivation. When I started my weight loss it was not easy for me, but my growing knowledge about weight loss helped me lose weight.

The first and foremost thing to know is how weight loss works with a calorie deficit, workout, and diet. To make your weight loss journey simple, let me help you with some important tips for a successful weight loss journey.

1. Start with a solid plan and be practical

The first thing to do is to make up your mind about weight loss. And, this includes changes in your lifestyle. Lifestyle changes may include changes in your diet, activity, sleep, and water intake. Be practical as much as you can and start small.

Do not overstress yourself in the beginning. For example, if you want to plan for a workout, go slow and simple. Take a small initiative first, like ordering sports shoes, or going out to a nearby park and breathing some fresh air.

You can download a step counter app and set a small goal of walking 5000 steps daily. The idea is to kickstart your workout without taking much stress and get lost only in planning.

With time you can set a new goal like walking 7000 steps, or 10,000 steps daily. You can increase the pace of your walking and convert it into brisk walking with time. To make your brisk walk more interesting you can listen to your favourite songs or podcast.

In the same way, you can plan your diet without overstressing yourself at the start. For example, learning new healthy recipes and trying yourself at home. Reading or listening about food and nutrition, etc.

2. Make a working diet plan

Your next step should be making a solid diet plan and sticking to it. Here, discipline matters more than diet. Because if you are not loyal to your diet routine, you will not reach your weight loss goal.

So, make your diet more interesting and put emotion into your diet and action. By putting your emotions I mean, devoting some time to learning and cooking some healthy recipes. This way it will be helpful for you to stick to your diet.

The next step should be to make your whole-day diet fall within your daily calorie budget. Educate yourself or talk to diet experts on this topic.

Once you are ready with your daily calorie budget make sure to put emotion into your diet. Experiment with your recipes and make some new ones to avoid boredom.

Try to eat calorie-friendly food like veggies, they are less in calories and can be eaten in volume. Make sure to add salad to your meal. You can consider adding, oats, millets, and other healthy food to your diet.

3. Start with easy workouts

As stated earlier, you do not have to stress yourself on workouts. There are plenty of easy workouts that you can start at home or visit your nearby park.

I have seen people joining the gym at the start and doing heavy workouts. Many lose interest in the middle and leave the gym within a month.

Learn how your mind works and feel a little comfortable at the start. You can start with simple workouts like skipping ropes, Surya Namaskar, Brisk walking, planks, Spot running, etc.

These simple workouts will help to put a desire for fitness and weight loss. With time you can add more exercises and later you can think of joining a gym.

Also, it is important to know which workout is good for you and which one to avoid. For example, if you have knee pain, a workout like stair climbing is not a good idea.

You can choose workouts based on your age, current body, and medical condition. If you are not comfortable with a specific workout avoid it, if not you will lose your weight loss progress.

4. Drinking enough water is a must

The next thing is drinking enough water and staying hydrated. If you not drinking enough water you will feel exhausted and dehydrated. Water helps in digestion as well.

So, if you’re not drinking enough water you will have a hard time digesting your food. And if your digestion is not okay your weight loss progress will also not be okay.

Having enough water intake helps avoid dehydration after a workout. To bring this to your habit you can set water reminders on your mobile.

Drinking enough water also helps feel fresh and energizes your skin. But make sure not to overdose yourself with water. Everything looks good when consumed in a balanced manner.

And, for a balanced diet, balanced water is a crucial factor.

From my experience, I have seen with more water my skin got a new charm. With this charm, I feel more motivated to stick to my weight loss journey.

I used to drink very little water before my weight loss journey. With less water and more junk food, I was diagnosed with stones in my organs. But with a little change in my diet and water intake, my stone was gone without any surgery.

So, water intake was a boon for me, it not only helped me in my weight loss but also avoided my previous health issues.

So, commit to having regular water intake and enjoy your weight loss journey. Also, do not overconsume water at bedtime. This may hinder your sleep.

5. Having enough sleep is crucial

Next comes sleep for a smooth weight loss journey. Yes, sleep is as important as diet and workout for your weight loss to work effectively.

Not having enough sleep may complicate your weight loss progress. Sleep is not just helpful for your physical fitness but also important for your mental fitness.

When you work on your sleep and have enough sleep at night this may help smooth your weight loss journey.

Early to bed and early to rise is always a good practice but make sure you have enough sound sleep. Sleeping helps you lose weight in autopilot mode.

When you sleep your fat-burning progress still goes on. Also, rest is important after a workout.

If you are not giving your body enough sleep, you will have a hard time working out the next day. Sleep helps recover your lost energy and makes you energetic for a new day.

It is always recommended to sleep at least 8 hours for the proper functioning of your body. When you have learned this practice, you will feel physically and mentally fit.

These days the biggest culprit is your mobile. make sure to avoid overuse of mobile, particularly at night time. Also, avoid overdosing on your tummy at night time.

Finish your meal at least 2 hours before bedtime to have a good sleep. Wear light clothes, make your bed a little comfortable, use a cotton bedsheet, and check your room temperature and ventilation.

6. Motivation is the key
