    Re: Natural Ways To Lose Weight

    hey friends,
    to reduce belly fat:i saw this in net......this is not my own stuff.....
    net la irunthu sutathu........

    1. Interval training. You can do crunches all day long, but you will never see that six-pack if it is buried under layers of fat.
    To achieve a truly flat stomach, work in some cardiovascular exercise between sit-ups, crunches, planks and other abdominal exercises.
    Try jumping rope, running on a treadmill or even do jumping jacks for 30 seconds to one minute between each set.
    You will shred fat while building a solid core.

    2. Don’t skip meals. Skipping meals is an easy way to earn a round waistline.
    When you skip meals, your body responds by raising cortisol levels, increasing cravings and storing fat, especially in the abdomen.
    Consuming small meals and snacks throughout the day can pacify cravings and rev up your metabolism to prevent fat storage.

    3. Skip the sweets. Sugar is the mortal enemy of a flat tummy.
    Sugar causes unnecessary spikes, crashes of your blood sugar levels and, when consumed in excess, gets stored as fat.
    If you crave sweets, keep fruits like blueberries, raspberries and strawberries accessible to pacify your sweet tooth.

    4. Increase vitamin C. Vitamin C, found in abundance in citrus fruits, broccoli, kale and bell peppers, can aid in keeping cortisol levels under control.
    Plus, vitamin C is essential in the production of carnitine, which the body uses to convert fat into energy.

    5. Boost intake of healthy fats. Although you should still moderate your intake, healthy fats like avocados, walnuts and olive oil can improve satiety.
    These foods will also rev up your metabolism thanks to high doses of omega-3.

    6. Sleep. Statistically, when people get busy, sleep moves down on the list of priorities.
    However, sleep is so important to weight management and optimal health that you can’t afford to skimp on it.
    Multiple studies have proven that too little or poor quality sleep leads to weight gain, junk food cravings and increased risk of heart disease and diabetes.
    Getting more sleep is an easy way to keep your body trim and healthy.

    7. Relax. Cortisol is the stress hormone.
    When you’re stressed, levels of cortisol rise.
    In cases of chronic stress, like tight deadlines at work, financial crises, injury or illness,
    your cortisol levels can reach extremes or impair the function of your adrenal system all together.
    This can lead to weight gain or the inability to lose weight, decreased immunity and increased levels of inflammation.
    Making time to relax and meditate each day – even for only five minutes – can help you keep cortisol levels balanced.

    Hi Narain, I will tell you five steps for reducing your stomach.

    Step one:
    If you want to build muscle and burn fat at the same time, you have to perform circuit training, three days per week. How can you achieve this? Indulge in full body exercises like lunges, push-ups, and pull-ups, for one set of 15 repetitions. Don't forget to follow everyexercise with one minute of jumping rope. You should be able to burn around 500 to 600 calories per workout.
    Step two:
    You have to work on your abdominal muscles three times in the week. Crunches and leg raises for three sets of 20 repetitions should be done. Also, do planks by holding your body in a push-up position on your elbows for 30 to 60 seconds for four sets.
    Step three:
    The kind of food you will eat in this period is vital in bringing about any change. Natural foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grain breads and pastas, chicken, beef, fish and low fat dairy should replace processed foods full of sugar.
    Step four:
    To minimize water retention, lower your sodium intake. This means you need to avoid salt. You can flavour your food with other herbs and spices instead.
    Step five:
    Stressing and anxiety can cause the over-production of a certain hormone called cortisol, which encourages weight gain about the belly area. So try to keep your cool!
    All the best. thank you

    4. Green Chillies : Green chillies contains Capsaicin which helps to develop the body growth cells and burns the calories in quick time.

    5. Garlic : Garlic contains Allicin which has anti-bacterial properties helps us to reduce the fat and removes the bad cholesterol.

    6. Honey : Honey is the best one to burn fat. Add honey in warm water and take it daily in the early morning.

    7. Green Tea : Green Tea is the most effective one which helps you to lose weight. It contains Antioxidants which helps and stabilizes our body weight.Take daily 2 cups of tea for a better results.

    8. Tomatoes : Tomatoes helps us to burn the fat in quick time. It also helps us to stay away from cancer. So Take tomatoes in your diet regularly. Every time you eat a tomato, your body releases the hormone cholecystokinin, which stretches the valve between the stomach and intestine. This leads to increased satiety and helps you reduce your daily calorie intake. (Also good for the skin and helps prevent acne and wrinkles.)

    9. Dark Chocolate : Dark chocolate contains Flavonoids, anti-inflammatory properties which helps to reduce the cholesterol levels in the blood. It boost the growth of serotonin in the blood and also burns the fat.

    10. Wheat Grass : It boosts our metabolism and helps to reduce the fat.

    * *Cinnamon: Just half a teaspoon of cinnamon added to coffee or lunch, lowers the levels of blood sugar, reduces insulin secretion and helps your body burn fat instead of storing it. Additionally, cinnamon is a natural sweetener and by using it to replace sugar you can reduce your daily caloric intake. Add half a teaspoon of cinnamon to your milk or foods to help your metabolism process the sugars found in foods.
    *Side note - I have tried adding cinnamon to my coffee... im not a fan! I have added it to my oats in the morning though along with sweetner, its not bad!

    Re: Natural Ways to Lose Weight

    Eating a handful of almonds a day, along with a healthy diet, might help you zap fat, suggests research published in the International Journal of Obesity. Diet-study participants who ate almonds daily for six months lost 18% of their body fat. Those who followed a diet with the same amount of calories and protein but swapped almonds for an equal number of calories in complex carbs (like wheat crackers) lost only 11%.

    Moreover lemon naturally possess fat burning properties. Try Lemonade whenever you feel hungry, it not only revitalizes your body but also increases your body metabolism.

    Stay Healthy! Stay Happy!
    Good Luck
