  • So without further ado, let's get straight to the video. Let's go!

  • *Music*

  • Drinking three tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • reduces fluctuations in your daily blood sugar levels by 10%.

  • And these sugar spikes are what leads to fat gain.

  • I personally don't drink pure lemon juice 'cause it's so sour,

  • but if you fill a container in the ratio of two liters water, juice of one lemon, one cucumber and ten mint leaves,

  • you'll get the right amount of lemon in just two cups.

  • This healthy water mix will not only help with weight loss,

  • but it will detox your body and clear your skin as well.

  • Or if you're super lazy, just mix the amount of lemon juice into your daily drinking water.

  • *Sips from cup*

  • *Music*

  • Did you know that drinking two cups of cold water on an empty stomach can boost your metabolism by up to 30%?

  • This is actually crazy if you think about it because

  • I burn about a thousand calories a day naturally;

  • burning an extra 30% is like 300 calories, which is like another small meal.

  • Drinking water before each meal also fills your stomach up so you don't overeat.

  • Studies have shown that if you do this before every meal for 12 weeks,

  • you'll lose 4.5 pounds or 2 kilos more than if you just eat normally

  • I've been doing this next hack without realizing for the longest time.

  • Basically, instead of a normal plate, eat from a smaller plate than you would usually.

  • There's actually proof that eating from a smaller plate

  • tricks your brain into thinking you're eating more than you actually are.

  • So when you finish your meal, you'll psychologically feel fuller and not continue to overeat.

  • This applies to eating from smaller bowls as well, which I've been doing all my life

  • because Chinese bowls are actually quite small.

  • Another study found that eating food off a plate with contrasting colors

  • will help people reduce the amount that they're eating.

  • The mind doesn't realize how much you're eating

  • if the food and plate are too similar in color.

  • So if you had a meal with mostly red food, choose a green plate to eat off;

  • And if you have a meal with mostly yellow food, then choose a blue plate.

  • Basically, you'd stop sooner.

  • Now this hack really speaks to me and all you lazycorns out there.

  • It's actually: to sleep.

  • Studies have shown that lack of sleep is bad for your body's metabolism

  • and that getting seven to eight hours a day of sleep

  • boosts your metabolism and lowers stress hormone levels, which also causes weight gain.

  • So now you can sleep in and not even have to feel bad for it.

  • I'll definitely be using this to my full advantage,

  • cause sleep is my most favorite thing in the world.

  • *Music*

  • Not all fats are bad.

  • There's evidence that eating mono-unsaturated fats in the morning

  • helps your blood sugar levels... well... stay leveled.

  • One suggestion by Tim Ferris is to have four Brazil nuts and one tablespoon of almond butter in the morning.

  • This will regulate your blood sugars for the rest of the day,

  • and it's pretty good.

  • Another super simple hack to lose weight

  • is actually to turn down your thermostat by a few degrees.

  • This is perfect for lazy people like me

  • who like reaping the rewards without moving a single muscle.

  • Science has shown that your body burns slightly more calories in the cold than in warm temperatures.

  • Obviously don't turn down your temperature so much that you're shivering,

  • but a few degrees probably won't be too noticeable.

  • But actually shivering burns a lot of calories

  • but very uncomfortable and I really don't recommend it.

  • Instead of PJs and stuff, wear your gym clothes around the house.

  • Seriously, this actually works,

  • because whenever I'm in my gym gear,

  • I just feel more active and healthy

  • and it actually makes me feel like exercising.

  • I know it's totally psychological,

  • but I also tend to move around more even at home

  • and occasionally get motivated enough to actually go to the gym

  • because, like, I'm in my gear.

  • If you're going to exercise, the best time is at the beginning of the week,

  • like a Monday,

  • because you can set a psychological pattern for the rest of the week.

  • Oh my gosh, I only did 17 steps?

  • Wait...

  • Where am I?

  • Why am I here?

  • Why do I feel the need to walk?

  • Why am I walking?

  • Another simple hack is just to wear a pedometer.

  • Research has shown that people who wear these

  • are more likely to reach their step goals than those who don't,

  • even when they aren't specifically trying to lose weight.

  • I personally think this is awesome

  • because you don't actually need to commit to any exercise.

  • You just need to wear it

  • and then let your subconscious do the work for you.

  • *music*

  • Get in touch with your lazy side

  • and try eating your food even slower.

  • Chewing more and slowing down your eating

  • will give your body time to realize when it's full,

  • so you don't overeat.

  • Studies have shown that you can

  • consume up to 10% less calories just by doing this.

  • I'm sure you all know the feeling

  • when you're starving and you eat super quickly

  • and then you realize you've eaten way too much

  • and regret it for the rest of the night

  • and puts you in a food coma and then you can't move.

  • Yeah.

  • Happens to me all the time.

  • So eat slower!

  • *Music*

  • When you eat more often and in smaller portions,

  • this causes less blood glucose spikes

  • which in return causes less fat gain.

  • It's great because it gives you an excuse

  • to eat, like, six meals a day and not feel bad.

  • Just make them smaller than normal.

  • *Music*

  • Exercise less.

  • Yes, you heard me!

  • If you're someone that's motivated enough to exercise to lose weight,

  • you could be doing it all wrong.

  • Studies have shown that exercising for hours at a low intensity

  • is much less effective than a short 15-minute high intensity workout.

  • Some high intensity activities include

  • jumping jacks, squats,

  • lunges and skipping.

  • If you wanna know more,

  • look up "high intensity interval training."

  • Cutting my exercise down from 1 hour to 15 minutes

  • definitely sounds like a win to me.

  • *Music*

  • Find a hobby that keeps you in shape

  • then you'll never have to exercise again.

  • I love dancing,

  • and I don't view it as an exercise at all

  • so, two birds with one stone.

  • Awesome!

  • *Music*

  • Eating spicy food has been shown to increase your metabolism. You can use chilis from the supermarket or some cayenne pepper.

  • If you didn't know I am a huge fan of chili and I would put chili in everything if I could, so this could be a part of my secret and I didn't even know about it.

  • *Music*

  • Drinking a cup of green tea before bed increases your metabolism

  • so you can burn more calories while sleeping,

  • and I truly give this a lazy thumbs up.

  • *Music*

  • Another thing you can eat before you sleep

  • is a spoonful of peanut butter.

  • I honestly didn't think this hack was accurate, but there is some nutritional evidence that a small amount of peanut

  • butter before bed actually helps keep your metabolism up during sleep.

  • I love peanut butter so you don't need to tell me twice.

  • *Music*

  • Wear form-fitting clothing while you eat. This hack is great to help with portion control,

  • because if you start eating too much you you'll get a physical reminder that you should probably stop because of the constricting,

  • so the most dangerous time to eat is actually at home when you're in your PJs and loose clothing.

  • Watch out guys!

  • *Music*

  • Never shop on an empty stomach; you have less self control when you're hungry,

  • so eat something before you go grocery shopping, even if it's, like, a fruit or a small snack,

  • that way you are less likely to buy things like junk food and sweets and you also save money. Win!

  • And don't even keep junk food at home. The only reason people are likely to eat junk food is when they are aimlessly wondering around and feeling peckish.

  • You open the cupboard and it's there, so take away the temptation, and plus, I'm way too lazy to go find junk food if it's not there,

  • so it kind of works for lazy people.

  • Pamper yourself. Chronic stress can be a major cause of weight gain, so it's in your best interests to relax a little.

  • Try a hot bath with epsom salts, ten drops of lavender oil and half a cup of baking soda. It's super relaxing,

  • draws out toxins, and lowers stress related hormones and balances your pH

  • *Music*

  • When eating a meal, eat the healthiest thing first. If you can't finish your meal and it's too much, it's better to have eaten your healthy calories

  • than the unhealthy ones.

  • *Music*

  • Limit sources of temptation, especially at night.

  • I'm actually the biggest offender of this

  • because I always get food envy

  • when I'm scrolling down Facebook or Instagram, and then you see those food posts, and next minute I'm, like, drooling on the screen,

  • and I don't even know how I got there, and if that means

  • you have to block food accounts or not go on social media at night

  • then might be a sacrifice you need to make for your waistline.

  • *Music*

  • When buying a meal ask for your dressings and sauces on the side.

  • Dressings can often be the most unhealthy part of the meal, so this way you only eat what you need.

  • *Music*

  • Simple food substitutions can help you

  • cut calories and fat while satisfying your cravings.

  • Use Cravings 911 on Good Housekeeping to find healthier alternatives to commonly craved foods.

  • One example is that cauliflower dipped in BBQ sauce apparently tastes like chicken nuggets,

  • and I tried this, and it doesn't taste like chicken nuggets,

  • but it's pretty good.

  • *Music*

  • Try sneaking in some more vegetables into your meals.

  • Obviously you won't need to do this if

  • you're vegetarian already, but for things

  • like stews or stir-fries, a little bit of

  • extra vegetable won't even be noticeable,

  • it's super tasty and so much better for you

  • and generally vegetables have less

  • calories than the same amount of meat, so

  • that's a win!

  • *Music*

  • Eat when you wake up because that will

  • kickstart your metabolism. If you wait an

  • hour or two before eating then that's

  • time wasted that you could be burning

  • calories doing absolutely nothing.

  • *Music*

  • Standing up for three hours a day can burn up to 150

  • calories compared to sitting, and I know

  • this is not super lazy, but think about all

  • the other things you have to do to burn

  • 150 calories. So if you're on

  • the computer a lot, consider a standing

  • desk, and if you can't do that find

  • some excuses to stand up, like, take more

  • drink breaks or bathroom breaks.

  • *Music*

  • If you're hungry,

  • ask yourself if you want an apple.

  • If the answer is no, you're probably just bored,

  • so go do something entertaining instead.

  • *Music*

  • Eat with your non-dominant hand.

  • This works because most of the food decisions

  • we make happen automatically, especially

  • when we're watching something.

  • Research has shown that simply by eating

  • with your non-dominant hand you can

  • break up your habit enough that you

  • become more aware of your eating

  • decisions, allowing you to stop sooner.

  • *Music*

  • Try watching some funny videos as well!
