Well, fellow lazy girls, I’ve got here a compiled list of easy peasy weight loss hacks to try.
Yes! Laughing can help you lose weight.
A belly laugh may help you increase your basal metabolic rate by as much as 10 to 20 percent according to one study published by the International Journal of Obesity.

Choose meal companions carefully
Okay. This is one easy hack. According to research, your food choices are highly affected by the behavior of people around you when you eat. So choose healthy food buddies!
Use smaller plates and bowls
Among the easiest ways to tricking yourself is to use smaller plates and bowls. Even if you put a small amount of food in your small plate, your mind will think that you’re eating a large portion.
Smaller plates and bowls will make your mind think that you’re already full. It can help you avoid overeating, as well as, filling your plate with large servings of food.
Avoid packaged and fast foods
Most, if not all packaged foods contain a lot of calories. This is one of the main causes of obesity. Plus, it’s so convenient.
Now that you know, pack your lunch instead of stopping by McDonald’s! It’s a win-win situation. You get to save more money and you lose some weight.
Drink lemon water
Losing weight has never been as easy as adding lemon to your water.
Lemon water is known to boost metabolism, support hydration, and increase weight loss. However, when it comes to losing fat, lemon water is no better than regular water.
With that being said, you can use lemon water as a low-calorie replacement for those higher-calorie beverages.
Prep meals ahead
Too busy to cook? Why not prep your meals ahead. This way, you only have to cook every three days instead of daily.
Get a few containers and place your meals in the fridge. These can help you avoid grabbing fast food when it feels convenient. And don’t forget to prep healthy meals to help you lose weight!
