Wengie is at it again! Wengie is a YouTube sensation that has many fantastic video blogs that offer life hacks and DIY ideas. In this video blog she discusses several hacks that will help you lose weight. Just about everyone is wanting to lose weight these days, so this will absolutely get you motivated!
Wengie begins talking about how important water is to losing weight. 2 cups of cold water on an empty stomach can boost your metabolism by 30%! Drinking water before each meal fills up your stomach so you don’t overeat. Even if you just do this and nothing else over a 12 week period, you can lose 4 pounds.
Eating from a smaller plate or bowl can make a huge difference. By doing this, it tricks your brain into thinking you’re eating more. Also if you eat slower and chew your food well, this keeps you from eating more and feeling bloated later. If you like spicy foods this is for you! Eating spicy foods increases your metabolism! Another way to boost your metabolism is to eat smaller and more often. How great is that! Eating 6 small meals will bring that metabolism right up.
Wengie talks about how some people will exercise all week and not get much out of it. She explains that a 15 minute high intensity work out will do more good than 30 minutes of slow exercise. She also likes to wear her gym clothes around the house. This seems to make her move more and give her motivation to go to the gym. She recommends finding a hobby that makes you move like dancing. This way you’re exercising and not really noticing it because you’re having fun!
If you like to have something warm to drink at night, Wengie has the perfect suggestion. Drinking green tea at night before going to bed, helps burn calories while you sleep. Also, if you eat a teaspoon of peanut butter before you go to bed it will do the same thing.
Wengie also recommends eating the healthy part of your meal first. This way you fill up on the good things first and eat less of the not so good.
