Eight Bizarre Weight Loss Tricks That Work

No matter where you go online, you can find a solution for weight loss. Whether you’re looking to loosen up your muscles to make yourself more bendy or you’re looking for a quick-fix solution for that little black dress event ahead, there’s always a way to get there. The thing is, weight loss isn’t a one size fits all activity. Losing weight and getting healthier is individual and what works for one person won’t be the solution for someone else. There are healthy ways to lose weight long term, but if you want to experiment and try something new, or even if you just want to lose those last couple of pounds, then these eight quirky ways could work for you.

Sniff, Sniff.
This is going to sound truly bizarre, but if you want to go totally quirky for your weight loss, how about sniffing fruit or peppermint? It’s true. There have been studies performed with over three thousand volunteers and the more frequently that people sniffed these foods, the less hungry they were. It’s like the brain is tricked into thinking you’re eating. Try not to sniff apples unless you plan to eat them though; especially not those in a shared fruit bowl at work.

Breakfast Like A King.
Eating a big breakfast means that you slowly release energy throughout the day, and in doing so, you curb your need to snack on junk foods. A smaller dinner compared to a bigger, more calorific breakfast could be the very answer that you need to slim down.

A Cup Of Motivation.
Social media is full of information about Skinny Coffees and detox teas, when really, all you need is to go a little natural. We all know the great things about green tea, but if you haven’t yet, it may be time to read up on the benefits of ginger tea for weight loss. Not only do you get to try a new flavour, but you get the chance to have a delicious cup of tea instead of a sugary soft drink.

Set Up Patterns.
Every time you get a piece of junk mail or a takeaway menu through your mailbox, do a jog around the block for every piece you get. Ten pieces equals ten laps. When you set up patterns like this, not only are you encouraging your body to get moving, you’re going to feel fantastic about yourself as you go.

Mirror, Mirror.
No one likes to watch themselves eat. It’s just not nice to clock an image of yourself chowing down on your dinner like it’s the last meal on earth. So, if you’re having an issue with seeing yourself eat, then perhaps it’s time to mount a mirror on the wall opposite your seat at the dining table. If you don’t like what you see, it can be enough to help you learn to cut back on your snacks and eat more nutrient-rich foods.
 
Get Accountable.
It may not be your thing, but Instagram is actually a fantastic weight loss tool. Having a following of people who are waiting for you to post your meals is a good way to feel like you need to shoot your food. Get accountable with it and let others see what you’re eating. This way, you can learn to create better food habits for yourself.
 
Scented Candles – Not For Consumption.
Lighting a scented candle after dinner in a vanilla or fruity scent can head off cravings for dessert foods. The appetite is suppressed, and you can breeze on with your day without the chocolate eclairs calling your name from the refrigerator.
 
Go Blue
Did you know that a colour can be an appetite suppressant? There are very few restaurants out there that have blue lighting, and it’s because people don’t find their food as appealing when it’s highlighted with blue. If you aim to eat on blue plates and have a blue tablecloth, you’re more likely to eat less of your food. Orange, yellow and red are colours that are full, which encourages you to eat more. Isn’t the brain great?
 
There are – of course – so very many more ways that you can lose weight, both quirky and conventional. The question is about what could work for you. Don’t measure your progress against anyone else’s, just trust in the method you choose and take notes on how it’s working for you. You could really be surprised in what you find. Trust the process and the weight will go.
