There are plenty of suggestions out there for how to quickly lose weight, but people often are unsure which ones to follow. If you’re struggling to lose weight, just remember it’s the little things that add up to achieve your goals. You don’t have to starve yourself. The more small changes you make, the more weight you can expect to lose.

Here are 3 easy ways for quick weight loss.

1. Drink Water!

There are so many drinks that come with extra calories that you might not even know of. Quit the sugary drinks and stick to water. There are many positives that water has to offer. Water can help you heed hunger cues. Most of the time, when we feel hungry, we are actually thirsty.

Drinking plenty of water helps to keep you full, which makes it less likely that you’ll snack or overeat during meals. Drinking enough water each day has a number of health benefits. And most of us don’t drink enough water each day, anyway.

Water also helps boosts energy! Energy and weight loss work together. When your energy is up, your workouts are more productive and your cravings are usually not on your mind. Water should be your main drink throughout the day!

2. Eat a High-Protein Breakfast

Some people believe skipping meals can lead to quick weight loss. But believe it when they say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Eating a high-protein breakfast is good for weight loss and long-term weight management.

Skipping breakfast causes one’s blood sugar to drop unless you are on a special program that allows your body to burn 2500—3000 calories of non essential fat while you sleep at night. In that case you will receive energy and nutrition from those calories when you wake up in the morning and you can wait until you process that fat to begin eating. You will begin to feel hungry when the fat is processed.  Eat when you begin to feel hungry.

If you are not on a special program that is burning the 2500-3000 calories of fat you become even hungrier and have less energy when you skip breakfast. When you eat breakfast, your body will feel nourished and satisfied throughout the day. You’ll be less likely to snack or eat the types of sugary foods that lead to weight gain.

3. Chew Your Food Slowly

Your stomach takes about 20 minutes for it to realize that it is full. You may be in a rush to finish eating, but eating too quickly too often could cause you to gain weight. Eating slowly will help you consume fewer calories and stay fuller longer than those who eat quickly.

Eating fast does not give your stomach enough time to signal the brain to tell it that it is full. If you still believe you’re hungry when you’re actually full, you could overeat. Pace yourself by taking at least 10-20 chews before you swallow. Inevitably, you’ll eat fewer calories at each meal.

There are many other tips and tricks to keep the weight off. Choosing whole foods instead of processed foods for your meals can help you lose weight and get healthier. Another trick is to give up on sugar entirely. It may sound difficult, but many people who quit sugar say they no longer crave it after a time. They even say they can taste food better, sleep better, and that they have more energy throughout the day!

If you’re struggling to lose weight, don’t worry. There are plenty of ways you can boost your weight loss.
