Feel better and lose weight without so much effort

 If you’ve been struggling to improve your health and get your weight under control, you may be simply be trying too hard. Stop trying to follow diets with a label, such as “vegan” or “gluten-free.” Instead, redevelop your body’s innate ability to know what it needs from food. You can do this by avoiding processed foods and preparing your own meals from whole foods. At the same time, it’s okay to stray from what your body needs now and then because it’s also important to enjoy your food. This helps curb overeating and indulging too often.

Losing weight with little effort

We’ve been told that losing weight requires focus and dedication, so it might be surprising to hear that sometimes it can happen without much effort. Most diets attempt to instill large changes to create small amounts of progress. However, turning this approach around can be even more beneficial. So instead, make small, sustainable changes that add up to large amounts of progress. The execution for the small changes is nearly effortless and easier to keep up. For example, jotting down what you eat each day in a food diary doesn’t require much effort. Yet it does place a spotlight on what you’re eating and can cause you to make small adjustments almost without thinking about it.

Type of fat you eat impacts where it goes

Where your body stores fat is actually related to what type of fat you eat, according to recent research. People who ate primarily saturated fat tended to store extra weight around their waistlines and near the liver. On the other hand, polyunsaturated fat consumption was linked to a slimmer waist. This is important for more than just weight reasons, however. Liver and belly fat have been connected to heart disease and diabetes.

Don’t worry about counting calories

Is it necessary to track each calorie you put into your body on a daily basis? While this approach may seem logical, not all calories are created equal. In other words, counting them is not enough to improve your health. Even if you only eat a small amount of calories of junk food, that food is still unhealthy. By contrast, eating more calories of good foods like vegetables or whole grains is going to be much better for your health and weight. You’ll also cut back on the stress of tracking each calorie. Less stress can actually help you lose weight.

Should you dial down your workout intensity?

While high-intensity workouts get a lot of attention, that doesn’t mean they’re the only option. If you are just starting to exercise or you simply dislike high-intensity activity, it’s perfectly fine to stick with moderate levels. If your goal is weight loss, you’ll need to work out at a sustainable level to burn more calories. Building up endurance also requires a longer, steady-paced workout. It’s also important to incorporate moderate exercise to allow your body to recover from vigorous activity and to reduce your risk of injury.
