5 Natural Ways To Lose Weight Without Working Out

Exercise is of course very vital for weight loss, but it’s not the only way by which one can lose weight. Nature has supplied us with a number of effective natural remedies for weight loss, and if you don’t really have the time or opportunity to exercise regularly, perhaps due to the nature of your job, you might take some comfort in knowing that there are a list of other things you could do to loss weight.

And if you’re already exercising regularly, these natural remedies will only help speed up the weight loss process. Read on to learn more about the top 5 natural weight loss techniques that don’t involve exercise:

1. Drink green tea more often

Some researchers have identified three main components in green tea that aid in weight loss: caffeine, catechins and theanine.

Caffeine generally helps boost your system, including your metabolism, which in turn leads to burning more calories, and weight loss.

Catechins are considered anti-oxidant flavonoids and are found in abundance in green tea. These compounds can help lower the absorption of lipids through the intestinal track.

Theanine on the other hand is an amino acid that helps in the secretion of dopamine (the chemical that makes you feel happy and relaxed). So if your over-eating due to stress, you might find green tea very useful.

2. Always stay hydrated



People often brush aside this very important aspect of weight loss. Staying hydrated throughout the day helps you burn up calories, and will help regulate your appetite. This is because people sometimes eat more when they feel thirsty as the body tends to sometimes misinterpret thirst as hunger.

Be sure to stick to natural fresh water and as much as possible, avoid the so-called specialty waters. Some of them are so loaded with artificial flavoring that might do more harm than good.

3. Plain Yogurt and Honey

This is simply the best snack ever. Chances are, you probably thought that yogurt was one of those foods that isn’t really good for your weight. Well, on the contrary, the probiotics in yogurt do wonders for the digestive tract and help to maintain a healthy balance of gut flora that optimizes digestion and the breakdown of certain substances.

When your digestive tract is running smoothly, you burn up more calories. To improve your weight loss results, try having low fat yogurt more often.

4. Get enough sleep


You could think of your body as one of nature’s most complex machines, and every machine needs time to rest. The human body is designed to have at least 7-8 hours of sleep daily.

Studies have shown that even a little bit of sleep deprivation can result in insulin resistance, which in turn leads to weight gain. So by having adequate amounts of sleep every day, you’re not only resting your body, you’re also ensuring that all your systems are running well and increasing your chances of succeeding at weight loss.

5. Eat protein or fiber for breakfast


These two foods would help you stay feeling full for longer periods of time. And since they’re a bit harder to break down than other foods, your body burns relatively more calories trying to break them down. Foods rich in protein include eggs, beans, salmon, etc. Fiber-rich foods include oatmeal, apples, pears, beans, lentils etc.


In a nut shell, to lose weight without exercise, you will need to be very selective with what you eat and carefully monitor how much rest you’re getting on a regular basis.
