6 Simple Ways to Lose Weight Painlessly

Losing weight is not an easy task. It can be very stressful. Most people fail to lose weight because they are unable to follow a diet or exercise plan. Trying to fulfill the demands of strict diet plans and intense activities can be painful.

You do not need to go through such stressful diets and painful exercises because there other healthier and painless ways of losing weight as well. By making some small and painless changes in your lifestyle, you can say goodbye to your extra weight and lead a healthy and happy life.

Here are some of the painless methods of weight loss:

1. Adding Food, Not Subtracting Them

Instead of excluding food from your diet, try to add more healthy foods to it. Select the foods that you like – juicy fruits, peas, cherries etc. and include them in your meals every day. Choose your favorite vegetables and make them a part of your daily meals as well. While adding these products to your diet, do keep an eye on the overall calorie consumption.

2. Switch To Lower Calorie Food

The best way of cutting down the calories in your diet is to switch to the foods with lower calories. Eat your favorite pizza with reduced fat cheese. Cut the calories, but always remember to add more fiber to your diet.

Fibers are essential for keeping the calorie count under check. You can add them to your diet by including a cup of wheat flour to the pizza dough or adding some bell peppers on a pie. Be careful about the beverages you are drinking as well. Switch to diet soft drinks or light beer.

3. Drink A Lot of Water

Water is an essential part of your diet. Drinking lots of water keeps the body hydrated. Drink a glass of water in the morning and it will help your digestive system.

It also helps in reducing the intake of food: drinking water before meals make you less hungry, so you consume fewer calories. Drinking more water is not harmful to your health in any way, so drink as much water as you can.

4. Importance of size

The size of your eating bowl, plate or mugs can help in losing weight. You can control the size of your meal by changing the size of your plate. It is possible that small portions of food in a big plate can leave you hungry because you know you have eaten less. But serving small portions in small plates will leave you feeling more satisfied as your mind acknowledges that it had a full plate of food.

It is important that you focus your attention on weight loss first and worry about maintaining it afterward. Focus on one task at a time. It will help in reaping better results.

5. Do Not Worry About Exercising

Another important thing to remember is to add a little physical activity to your daily routine. It does not have to be any strenuous exercise. It can be something simple like a little dancing or a fast walk etc.

If you are intimidated by the word exercising and always fail to follow proper exercising sessions, then do not worry. You can avoid calling it your exercise plan. To lose weight you need to burn calories. You need physical activity to burn calories and it can be any physical activity. You can lose calories by indulging in your favorite physical activities like riding a bike or playing any sport. You do not need to stress out about exercising, just focus on enjoying your favorite activities.

6. Adopt Strolling

Strolling in good weather is an enjoyable activity. It also keeps you healthy and fit. Try to incorporate strolling in your day-to-day operations. Even if you do not have any right pathways for strolling in your area, you can still do it daily. You can park your vehicle at the back of the parking lot and walk around.

You can do some simple activities that will help in providing you with the physical activity you need every day. You can manually rake the fallen leaves in your house, walk to the shopping centers, take stairs instead of elevators, etc.

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

A honeymoon is important.  The wedding is over.  The months, or even years, of stress and planning are finally over.  It’s time for the two of you to relax, settle in, and start enjoying your time together as you embark on your first journey as a family.

To make the most of this time for the least amount of money, it’s important to focus on what you want out of a honeymoon.  This isn’t your typical list of touristy honeymoon locations everyone goes to.  Rather, it’s a list of cheap honeymoon experiences a couple can enjoy together, regardless of where it’s at.

1. Camping

A week long camping trip is a fantastic way to see how you mesh together as a couple.  You’re put in a low impact “survival” situation where it’s just the 2 of you and nature.  You have a chance to see how your new spouse handles themselves when left with the basics of life.  There are amazing national parks all over the United States where you can camp for a week for $20-30, disconnect from technology, and enjoy some of the natural wonders our nation has to offer.

2. Staycation

You don’t have to go anywhere for a honeymoon.  In fact, the tradition of taking a honeymoon vacation is a relatively new one.  Prior to the 19th century, a honeymoon involved staying home together for a month to get to know each other physically.  Think of how blissful it could be to take a full month off work, disconnect from the outside world, and focus entirely on projects together.  You may not be wowing your friends and family with pictures of some exotic location, but they’ll be envious of your escape from the rat race nonetheless.

3. Island Getaway

People tend to overspend on their honeymoon vacations to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc.  Going to these places doesn’t have to be expensive.  You don’t need to stay in a 5 star resort when you’re on a Best Western budget.  You’re there to be in the atmosphere of the island, not a hotel room. Book a cheap flight and sleep in a hotel alternative, on the beach or in your car.  It’s the view in paradise that really matters.

4. Fancy Resort

Book an expensive resort, spa, or retreat in the city you live in.  While this may seem counterintuitive as a cheap destination, when you consider your savings on airfare and other travel costs, you can afford to be treated like royalty within your own city limits.  If you book a honeymoon package, you’ll end up with a lot of free amenities and extra attention.  There’s no need to fly halfway across the world to live the good life.

5. Road Trip

The journey is often more fulfilling than the actual destination.  If you fly out to some exotic locale, you’ll be stuck on a plane for 8-30 hours.  Rent a luxury car, pick a handful of places you each have always wanted to visit, and go on an adventure.  You can keep food costs down by packing your own snacks, but it’s always a good idea to sample the local delicacies wherever you go, even if it’s only a few states over.

6. Charter a Boat

If the ocean is your thing, a week-long cruise can cost you $1500-$3000 per person, depending on the destination.  You also have to factor in travel costs to and from the cruise, alcohol, souvenirs, and on-shore excursions.  You’ll also be surrounded by people.  For the same price (and often much cheaper), you can charter your own boat and enjoy the experience in private.

7. Las Vegas/Atlantic City

If gambling is your thing, these are the places to do it.  Which one you choose depends on your preference, budget, and proximity.  The way to make this vacation cheaper is to gamble smart.  Stay away from low odd tables (i.e craps, roulette) and read up on the MIT blackjack strategies to beat the house.  If you do it right, you can win enough for a free trip (and gain a valuable team skill in the process).

8. Themed Retreats

There are weeklong retreats all over the world where you can fully immerse yourselves as a couple into a hobby you’re both passionate about.  Go on a yoga/meditation retreat, a ranch, a vineyard/farm, a backpacking adventure, treasure hunt, or whatever you’re into.

9. Working Honeymoon

Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be a vacation.  For a truly memorable experience, dedicate a week to a charity or volunteer organization.  You can drive out to a campground to help restore it in the offseason.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to volunteer to help out your local animal shelter, plant trees, help the homeless, etc.  Use the time to do something together as a couple that will fulfill you spiritually while contributing to the community.  Just because you’re on a honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be productive.

10. Festivals, Fairs & Special Events

Every city, state, and country has festivals, fairs, and special events.  Find one you’re interested in.  If you time your wedding right, your honeymoon can be a trip to one of these festivals.  Burning Man, SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Renaissance Fair, regional harvest festivals, Mardi Gras, New Years Eve in Times Square, a movie premiere, or whatever you’re into.  If you plan your honeymoon at the right time in the right place, the possibilities are endless.
