Losing Weight can be troublesome for many people. Even after getting over endless diet plans or rigorous regimes of exercises, no significant result is yielded. So, what exactly it is that are you doing wrong? What is the best way to shed some Kilos without subjecting the body to extremities?

Learn how Dr. Kartik advises you simple strategies that help you achieve significant weight loss.

Step 1: ‘Know what your Weight should be’

 A healthy weight might be about a good physical appearance and lowering your odds of getting conditions like type-2 diabetes and heart disease.
Keeping a check on your weight is important. In case your weight is presumably high, your health is at risk.
A more accurate measure is your body mass index (BMI), which calculates your weight in relation to your height. A BMI of between 18.5 and 24.9 is healthy.

Step 2: ‘Cut Back on Junk’

Food items that are low in nutrition and high in calories harm your body more than you think.
You don't have to stop all your ecstasies but a cut back on high calorie food is required and rather eating smaller portions, less often is advised.
Eating food slowly also helps a lot. Fast eaters gain more weight over time. Eating slowly makes you feel fuller and boosts weight-reducing hormones

Step 3: ‘Prioritize real, whole foods’

Eating grains that haven't been refined helps retain more fibres and useful carbohydrates. Usually the grains in white bread and white rice have had their nutrient-dense outer layers removed. What's left behind is mainly empty carbs which prove harmful.
While whole wheat, brown rice, and steel-cut oats have kept their outer layers, which are packed with fiber. That fiber will keep you feeling full for longer, which may be why people who eat more whole grains report greater weight-loss success.

 Step 4: ‘Building a better breakfast’

All meals are important, but breakfast is undoubtedly the most important meal of the day. The best, heartiest breakfasts are ones that will fill you up, keep you satisfied and stave off cravings later in the day. Make sure you take in good proteins and calcium sources as well as starting your day with a blood-sugar-stabilizing blend of nutrients will help you slim down without sacrifice.

Step 5: ‘Skip high calorie beverages’

Monitoring the intake of packed juices, Cold Drinks, sweetened coffee and alcoholic beverages can be harmful if taken beyond a certain quantity. You should consume of each of these beverages rarely and keep a check on your sugar levels over the items you consume. You should also avoid artificial sweeteners as they also do nothing good to your body. Natural fruit and vegetable juices are best for your body and you should make a habit of consuming them regularly.

Step 6: ‘Do not skip a meal’

The biggest myth that surrounds all weightloss clinics is about skipping your meals. Skipping meals will not make you lose weight faster. Com what may you should have proper meals every day. Going long periods of time without food does double-duty harm on our healthy-eating efforts by both slowing down your metabolism, and priming you for another binge later in the day. Make a healthy habit of eating three meals and two snacks every day, and don't wait longer than 3 to 4 hours without eating.

Step 7: ‘Eat your water’

Drinking plenty of water is very necessary for being healthy. Drink water a half hour before meals. Drinking water, a half hour before meals helps increase weight loss. Moreover, consumption of high-water content foods such as cucumbers, tomatoes, watermelon, grapes, pineapple and cranberries help you stay full due to their higher fiber,  and high water content.

Step 8: ‘Intake more vitamins and minerals’

Mineral such as Potassium, magnesium and calcium can help reduce weight. Foods that are rich in minerals such as leafy greens, oranges, sweet potatoes, carrots, tomatoes, and cauliflower. Low-fat dairy, plus nuts and seeds can also help give you a bloat-busting boost, and have been linked to a whole host of additional health benefits, such as lowering blood pressure, controlling blood sugar, and reducing risk of chronic disease overall.

Step 9: ‘Take adequate sleep’

It is an unknown but proven fact that sleep deprivation may increase your weight and not just that but that habit makes us susceptible to late night food habits which are unhealthy too. Lack of sleep in the night can slow down your metabolism. Plus, when you're awake for longer, you're naturally more likely to feel hungrier.

Step 10: ‘Take a walk’

Exercising at any time is good for you. But evening activity may be particularly beneficial because many people's metabolism slows down toward the end of the day. Thirty minutes of aerobic activity before dinner increases your metabolic rate and may keep it elevated for another two or three hours, even after you've stopped moving. This helps you digest your food better and exhibit a better weightloss.

Step 11: ‘Don’t stress yourself’

Too much restricted diets makes the whole process more difficult, stressful, and downright impossible to lose weight. So rather than beating yourself up for eating foods you think you shouldn't, let it go. Treating yourself with something that feels indulgent to you — can help you stay on track for the long-haul, so allow yourself to eat, breathe and Food should be joyful, not agonizing

Step 12: ‘Ignore the gimmicks’

At any given time, there are dozens of weight-loss hypes in the marketplace that claim to have the ability to take off 10 kilos in 10 days, or whatever. Desperation can tempt us to try anything — from "clean eating" to cutting out food groups entirely. Keep in mind that such gimmicks are harmful over a long time and should seriously be not pursued. A healthy and meaningful way to lose your weight is the best way to do it.

Wightloss is a constructive process and should be looked towards as an important task but should be handled with care and nurture. For further insights, help and guidance on weightloss programs visit Dr. Kartik’s Slimming Clinic.
