Sometimes less is more, we often take drastic measures when trying to lose weight, however believe it or not it is possible to lose weight with less effort and just some small lifestyle changes.

The following 4 tiny tweaks will help you lose weight without trying to hard.

1 Buddy up

Unless you're a highly motivated self-starter, your chances of sticking to a plan after a long, busy day, are significantly low! Find a workout buddy, this way, you can go to the gym together, text each other often, and sharing your challenges and setbacks along the way.

Can’t find a workout buddy? Then, share your progress on social media platforms with others who are on a similar journey, as you and the positive likes and comments will encourage and help boost your confidence to continue.

Posture up

You will be surprised how standing tall with good posture, will immediately reduce a few pounds and flatten your stomach instantly.
Often, slumping and slouching accentuate your stomach, and over time, as you sit with a slouch continually, you will notice a little pouch.

Throughout your day place a reminder in your phone to be conscious of your body position: place the weight evenly in both your feet, keep your pelvis neutral, take deep breathes into your belly to help extend the spine and slightly pull your shoulder blades back.

Stress less

Give your body an opportunity, to relax, being around nature, water, the beach is perfect place to balance out and allow calmness. Learn to slow down, take time out at lunchtime to eat your food slowly outside with nature.

Creating a less stressful environment can help promote weight-loss practically around the waistline. Which can be sometimes be due to the high amount of insulin we store, during blood sugar crashes, which are brought on by stress.

Walk more

The reciprocal movement of walking (swinging of the arms) and the bouncing action helps to pump, a sluggish or blocked lymphatic system.

Our lymphatic system is our body’s sewer system - it consists of dozens of glands and lymph nodes. Its primary purpose is to carry toxins out of our tissues and toward our blood stream, so the kidneys and livers can filter it out.

By going for a moderate paced walk for just 10-15 minutes everyday, you will enable your body to detoxify better and kick-start your weight loss goals.
