You know what they say - the ‘lil things make a big impact in your life! Forget crash diets and intense marathon workouts, here are a few things you should do to make your life easy. We decided to compile a list of teeny tiny lifestyle changes that you can make to lose weight.

1. Cut sugar from your diet

We don’t mean to say that you should completely abstain from sugar but if you have a sweet tooth then make sure you cut your sugar intake. Removing sugar from your diet helps reduce your carbohydrate intake, encouraging you to eat more protein. Heard of those sugar-free diets that make people lose weight? Try your own version… it can be as simple as skipping that early morning croissant and that late-night brownie.

2. Start your day with a glass of warm water and lemon

This isn’t all that difficult, is it? Lemon and luke warm water early in the morning not only help to cut down fat but also let’s your body soak up the vitamins - making your immune system strong.

3. Run on alternate days

Don’t like the gym? Well, a lot of us don’t and that’s absolutely fine. Pick the kind of workout you enjoy doing and try it on alternate days. Wondering what that could be? Well, running is a great form of exercise! All you need is a good pair of shoes to keep you motivated and fit! PUMA’s latest running shoe - NetFit come with lacing styles that can be customized according to your foot type. The NetFit comes with the IGNITE midsole that not only provides extra comfort but also increases performance while you’re on the run.

How cool is that?

4. Eat your meals on the table

Research shows that you eat more while watching TV because it distracts you. If you’re looking to cut down on the fat without making a major sacrifice, switch off your television and eat where you’re supposed to - on the dining table!

5. Skip the elevator

Thanks to our hectic schedules, we often tend to miss out on our daily dose of exercise. Walking a flight of stairs is a quick workout you can squeeze in, in the middle of the day. You’d be surprised at how much this tiny alteration can help!

6. Order the salad!

Yes, we were all told to have a balanced diet as kids but none of us really listened to that, did we? Well, following a good balanced diet as opposed to eating junk on a regular basis keeps you healthy and it’s something we don’t really need anyone to tell us!

7. Drink adequate water

Drinking enough water is important but the most easily forgotten thing to do. However, having enough water helps people lose weight faster. We have heard people tell us to have more than 8 glasses of water. If you keep forgetting, then it’s time to set reminders!

8. Get some sleep!

You know what’s unhealthy? Sleep deprivation. Infact, people who don’t sleep enough tend to gain more weight. So, leave all those worries aside and ensure you get a good night’s sleep.

9. A walk and some luke warm water after every meal

This helps even on days when you have had junk! Go for a little walk or have luke warm water right after binging on junk food. It makes digestion easier!

Fitness is not just about strenuous workouts, it is about tiny lifestyle changes that make a difference. If you too know a few more techniques that help lose weight easily, then do let us know!

Here is a video with Virat Kohli encouraging each one of us to lace up and start running. Motivated much?
