These are the old methods of losing weight and these will surely work. However, after some time you need to learn new tricks for your weight loss. Here are 10 weight loss tricks you haven’t tried that can help your weight loss efforts:

  1. Cheat Days
  2. Weight Loss Tricks

    You need to reward yourself for all your hard work. After 6 days of following a strict diet, you can have a cheat day. Eat anything you want just don’t overindulge or you’ll get a tummy ache.

  3. Include a Lot of Fiber in Your Diet
  4. Fiber from fruits and vegetables helps you feel full faster and longer. Also, fiber is difficult to digest so you’ll end up burning a lot more calories during the digestion process.

  5. Drink a Glass of Water before Every Meal
  6. This tops the list when it comes to the 10 weight loss tricks you haven’t tried. First of all, it will help you feel full faster so you will end up eating less. Secondly, water is proven to help increase the metabolism.

  7. Place a Mirror in Your Dining Area
  8. This is one of the most effective among the 10 weight loss tricks you haven’t tried. Seeing your body makes you self-conscious so the tendency is to eat less especially if you have some excess weight.

  9. Stop Running
  10. Many people claim that running is the best way to lose weight. However, running is not for everyone. If you don’t like running then don’t do it. You can try brisk walking instead. Doing something you don’t like will only end up with you giving up. Also, overweight people damage their knees, back and ankles by running.

  11. Sleep at least 8 Hours a Night
  12. Sleep is very important for weight loss because of the hormone leptin. This hormone gives the brain input regarding appetite, energy storage and metabolic regulation. Leptin levels rise during sleep depending on the duration.

  13. Take the Stairs or Walk
  14. This is very effective and easy to squeeze into your busy schedule. A short walk during your breaks and taking the stairs can help you burn a lot of calories when you make it a habit. At the end of the day, you can burn a total of 500 or more calories.

  15. Don’t Eat in Front of the TV
  16. You should enjoy your food by eating at the dining table. Eating while watching TV makes you concentrate on what you’re watching and your plate will be empty before you realize it. This usually causes you to eat a lot more.

  17. Don’t Eat Out of the Bag/Container
  18. When you’re eating ice cream, chips or similar foods, always transfer your food to a small bowl. Eating out of the original container causes you to eat a lot more.

  19. Learn to Deal with Stress
  20. Most people are emotional eaters. They eat unhealthy food when they’re stressed out taking it out on a box of chocolate or a bag of potato chips. Learn to deal with stress and your emotions correctly by practicing relaxation techniques and you will avoid monstrous food binges.
