Whether your goal is to lose or maintain your weight, your diet influences your outcome more than anything else. If your crazy busy life sometimes means skipping meals to fit everything in you may be doing your waistline a disservice. The reason: If you take in too few calories, it can cause your body to lose muscle mass, which will decrease the rate of your metabolism. Plus, when you skimp on grub, your body slows the rate at which is burns calories to conserve the fuel it’s got. “Under-fueling is just as risky as over-fueling,” explains Carolyn Brown, MS RD at Foodtrainers in Manhattan. Keep grab and go bites like nuts and fruit on hand so you can at least eat something when your tummy starts to grumble. Better yet, plan your meals and snacks ahead of time.

However if you are obese due to the above factor, then its time to follow some simple home remedy tips (home remedies part 1 here and natural remedies part 2 here).

Baba Ramdev Home Remedies for Obesity

Baba Ramdev Natural Weight Loss Remedies #21: Eat Slowly

Just about everyone eats too fast (myself included). The problem is it takes about 20 minutes for the brain to register that the stomach is full, but the average meal only takes about 10 minutes to eat! This causes us to eat far more than we should (have you ever gulped down a meal and then said to yourself after “I ate too much”?). By eating slowly you can actually stop yourself from eating at least 100 calories every day, which is a significant amount.

Baba Ramdev Home Remedies for Weight Loss #22: Use a Small Plate to Eat Off

A reasonable size meal can still look small on a big dinner plate. Most of us eat too much simply because we use large dinner plates and so we feel we have to fill them up. By going with a small plate you’re actually “tricking” your mind into thinking that you’re eating a decent size meal, which of course will also spare you 100’s of calories a day.


Baba Ramdev Natural Remedies for Weight Loss #23: Only Eat Off a Plate

Eating from bowls, shared dishes or straight from the container (chip packets, etc) hides exactly how much you’re eating and is a definite no no. Only ever eat from a plate – no exceptions! If you do get a food craving then take a small amount of the craved item and put it on a small plate. Put the rest away. Sit at the table and slowly eat the food without distraction, staying totally focused on chewing and swallowing. Often this is enough to satisfy the urge.

Baba Ramdev Home Remedies to Lose Weight #24: Sit At The Table To Eat

100’s of calories are consumed sitting on the lounge watching TV. Every time you go to the pantry and grab some chips or biscuits, etc, and then sit back on the lounge, you’re setting yourself up for a weight gain disaster! Eating at the table does two things – first, it gets you in the habit of only eating when you’re supposed to. And second, it allows you to keep track of exactly how much you’re eating. So be sure to eat every bite at the table from now on!

Baba Ramdev Natural Weight Loss Remedy #25: When You Eat, Focus All Of Your Attention On Eating

Do not watch TV or read a book or talk on the phone or drive while eating. When you eat, completely focus on your food and allow no distractions. Chew your food completely and concentrate only on the sensation of the taste. The result will be perfect digestion and assimilation (and the food actually tastes so much better!)

Baba Ramdev Home Remedies for Weight Loss #26: Eat Healthier Desserts and Treats

Sweet cravings are the ones that most people struggle with. Vow only to eat Paleo sweets (the best) or low fat and low sugary treats such as home-made yoghurt, low fat/sugar ice cream, Vitari, and low fat or carob chocolate (make sure they don’t contain aspartame or any hidden sugars). Yes, these foods can be more expensive, but the amount of calories saved will be well worth it when you step on the scales and you’ve reached your weight loss goal!

Baba Ramdev Natural Weight Loss Remedies #27: Keep an Eating Diary

By keeping an eating diary you can keep track of exactly how much you’re consuming. Most people have no idea just how much “extra” food goes into their mouths every day. You must write down every single bit of food and drink that you have every day. Even if you pick a crumb up off the floor and put it in your mouth, write it down! You’ll be shocked to see just how much extra food you consume each day.


Baba Ramdev Home Remedies to Reduce Weight #28: Never Shop Hungry

This is one of the biggest blunders of all people trying to lose weight. When you shop on an empty stomach those treats all look irresistible, but when you shop on a full stomach the cravings simply aren’t there as much. In addition to this, do not buy any foods that you know you may struggle with as far as cravings go. If you struggle with chips, for instance, don’t have packets sitting in the pantry. Every time you go to the pantry you’re going to see them and that’s not going to help your cause at all. And don’t use excuses such as “they’re for the kids” or “they were on special” or whatever. Just don’t have them in the house – period! You can’t eat what ain’t there!

Baba Ramdev Natural Weight Loss Remedy #29: Put Up Photos

Photos on your fridge and pantry of yourself as you would like to look and as you look right now can be highly motivating when you go to reach for that tub of ice-cream or Snickers bar. And get then blown up as big as you can. I know they don’t look attractive and can be a bit embarrassing when people drop over, but the added motivation you’ll get will make it very worthwhile!

Baba Ramdev Home Remedies for Weight Loss #30: Don’t Bother With Fad Weight Loss Products or Diets

As sure as the sun rises every day, there’s always going to be the “latest and greatest” weight loss product or weight loss diet on the market. At the moment the most popular weight loss products are Garcinia Cambogia and Green Coffee Bean Extract. But they must work right because even Dr Oz says they’re great! Well, I’m always weary when someone’s out there promoting a health or weight loss product and they have financial ties to that product (such as the case with Dr Oz). And the thing is, these products aren’t cheap either!

Then when you look at the current weight loss diets going around, it’s the replacement shake programs that are the big winners and money spinners. And even though these do work initially, they teach you nothing about proper eating, along with the fact that you can’t stay on them forever (and some of the ingredients in the shakes aren’t healthy either). The real life evidence shows that when most people come off these shakes, they put the weight straight back on, and then some.
