Drink water before meals
Drinking water before meals helps to boost your metabolism by about 30% over the next one and a half hours, which helps you burn off more calories. You should take water about half an hour before meals to help you eat fewer calories and lose more weight.
Drink Green Tea
Apex weight loss experts suggest that drinking green tea helps to lose weight. Green teas are loaded with antioxidants, which work with the caffeine in the tea to enhance fat burning. There is a lot of conflicting evidence about green tea but for most people, consuming green tea beverages helps to lose weight.
Replace your cooking oil with coconut oils
Consuming many unhealthy fats also makes it harder to lose weight when you are working so hard at it. Coconut oil is extremely healthy. It contains medium chain triglycerides, which metabolize differently from other fats. They help boost your metabolism by up to 120 calories every day and they help to reduce your appetite. You should not add the coconut oil to what is already cooked but replace the cooking fat you normally use with coconut oil.
Cut back on the sugar
Too many people are eating too much sugar nowadays. You should cut back greatly on the added sugars. Too much sugar is associated with the risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease. If you are trying to lose weight, you should not consume too much sugar. Avoid putting too much sugar in your tea or coffee and read food labels before being since healthy foods are also sometimes loaded with sugar.
Reduce the refined carbohydrates
Refined carbs contain more sugar and less fiber and nutrition. These refined carbs spike your blood sugar and increase hunger cravings just a couple of hours later. You should avoid refined carbs as much as you can and choose more organic and whole grain carbohydrates.
