You’re nearly there; your weight loss goal is nearly complete. As most people find, it’s those final pounds which are the hardest to shift though. For some reason, for someone who is looking to cut down their weight by thirty pounds, the first twenty five are much easier than the remaining few.
We won’t get into the ins and outs of why this occurs – there’s probably a whole host of reasons (some of which will be purely psychological). What we will say is that there are some quick hacks out there to help you quickly tumble down the scales. They’re not cheating – but they can help you out when the going gets tough. Let’s take a look at the four best ways to do this.
The new form of liposuction
Liposuction may have had something of a reputation several years ago, but thanks to establishments like Sono Bello this is quickly changing. Laser lipo is the new kid on the block and to say that it’s a much more efficient form of fat eradication would be a gross understatement. If you are desperate to remove those fat cells, in a safe and quick manner, this is probably your best bet by far.
Increase the amount of fiber in your diet
For anyone who is partial to vegetables – you’re in luck. It’s foods like these which can be an absolute Godsend and really make those last few pounds a breeze to knock away.
Fiber is one form of food which keeps us full and suffice to say, this is pretty important during the crucial stages of any diet. The reason we honed in on vegetables was because these also tend to be very low in calories, meaning that you can be kept full without any waistline repercussions whatsoever.
Give your body a challenge again
We said we wouldn’t go into too many details on why the final pounds are much harder to shift, but one reason is that your body has just become too used to your current workouts.
It means that you need to put it under some strain again. If you are someone who frequents the weight training section of the gym, this might mean turning to a low rep, heavy weight regime (or vice versa if this is your current strategy). For the cardio enthusiasts, simply opting to cycle rather than run can work a charm as well.
The basis of this is to introduce new challenges to your body, so it doesn’t have to work “as normal” to be effective.
Bring down the temperature
This final suggestion might appear to border on the ridiculous, but it has been proven to be successful. If you set your room temperature to about 60 degrees, you’ll soon find that your body starts to burn brown fat. This is because this fat burns energy to make heat – so it stands to reason that it will be working a little harder when things take a turn for the chilly.
