Research shows that in one’s lifetime, there would be 5 attempts to lose weight and for women, it’s 7 times on average. Why do people keep attempting and failing each time? In this article, we are going to explore how to lose weight in 7 easy steps.
1. Be More Active
The more active you are, the more calories you burn. *SCIENCE*
No but for real though, the more physically active you are, the more calories you can burn, as being active improves body metabolism rate. Simple things such as parking your car further, taking the stairs instead of getting on the lift, or washing your car is an effective way to achieve that daily step count.
2. Stay Hydrated
Are you hungry or are you just thirsty? Ask yourself that whenever you are craving for snacks in between meals. Research has shown that we often confuse ourselves that we are hungry but we are actually thirsty. Getting enough water also improves complexion, improves bad breath, and metabolism, which is a big plus. So drink up!
3. Don’t Starve Yourself
Skipping meals does more harm than good. Severely restricting calories or starving yourself makes binge eating inevitable, it is a cycle that you really do not want to be in. Plus, it will make your body metabolism go whacky.
4. A Diet That Doesn't Feel Like A Diet
Make your diet not feel like it is a diet, instead, make it like it is just the way you eat. For example, swap out your unhealthy food choices with healthier food options that you know you will love. You may even achieve a calorie deficit without you noticing it!
Here are some healthy food alternatives that you can try out!
This does not mean that you have to ditch your favourite ice cream, or that slice of pizza or bread that is filled with good old carbs. The key is to eat in moderation, don’t think about restrictions, think nutrition!
5. More ZzZzzZ 😴
Getting enough sleep is crucial in losing weight! Studies have shown that sleep deprivation will cause weight gain as it alters your body response to food, in a bad way. So make sure you get at least 8 hours of that beauty sleep!
6. Maintaining A Healthy Digestive System
According to everydayhealth.com, our gut health plays a vital role in weight loss. If your digestive system is working at it’s best capacity, your body is able to process the food better, ultimately losing weight.

7. Don’t rush your progress
Remember that American show, America’s Biggest Loser? 6 years after that victorious night, most of the contestants struggled to maintain their weight that they had lost in the 30 weeks diet and exercise intensive program. Most of them regained back or even were heavier than they had started. So the biggest takeaway is, don’t rush it.
Lastly, Ninki just wants to say that losing weight is not always about the numbers on the scale, nor how you look in the mirror. It’s about how you feel inside; you feel stronger, healthier, more confident, more empowered.
