5 Powerful Morning Habits That Will Help You Lose The Extra Weight

Everyone says that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but this is only partially true. What also needs to be added is the daily dose of multivitamins for the best effect. However, what you shouldn’t forget is that morning is the most important part of the day. With the right morning habits, you can improve everything, from your mood to your metabolism which plays a big role in weight loss. When you start the day properly, you will not lose the unwanted weight but you’ll be full of energy. You’ll be motivated and ready to overcome any obstacle you face during the day. Thus, how should you properly start your day?

Expose yourself to sun
According to a study, sunlight is one of the greatest sources of vitamin D. This vitamin helps you be emotionally stable, improves the function of the organs, and the warmth from the rays lifts your spirit. However, how does it help with weight loss? Well, if you add soaking in sunlight in your morning routine, you’ll start feeling more energetic, motivated and healthier. And all these thanks to vitamin D and the hormonal changes from sun exposure.

This habit will give you the energy you need to stick to your goals about health, such as going to the gym or making a healthy meal. It is much easier to stick to your goal when you feel motivated and energetic. If you go out to the sun every morning, you will create a morning habit. Once you have this habit, it will be much easier for you to wake up in the morning. The point is that people who wake up early and have breakfast early, easily activate their metabolism.

The morning sun also contains a higher level of blue light, which helps normalize your daily rhythm. When this rhythm functions properly, you’ll sleep much better and have more energy during the day. We need sleep for our organs, metabolism, and other bodily functions to work properly. And guess what? You only need 20 to 30 minutes of sun exposure each morning. If you combine this with some other activity, it will be easy to implement this in your busy morning routine.

Increase the intake of proteins
If you usually drink coffee first or skip breakfast altogether, you miss a great opportunity to fill your body with what it needs and to postpone your hunger long enough to make good decisions for lunch. The increased amount of proteins builds muscle mass and keeps you full for a longer time.

Your body is fasting each night when you sleep, so if you keep it full of proteins longer, that could help you will the blood sugar. Your calorie intake will also reduce because you won’t feel the need to eat snacks in the morning. With a full stomach, it will be easier to make smart decisions for lunch because it won’t be ‘crying’ for food the whole morning.

Spoil yourself
If you know that you’ll want to have pizza during the day, or a piece of cake, have it in the morning. This gives your body enough time to digest it, instead of it remaining in your stomach during the night or once you are sitting at home, thus turning it into fat.

If you want to go overboard, do that in the morning when you have a full day to burn calories. Even though this is not the best scenario for weight loss, ‘cheating’ with sweets early in the morning helps the body not to accumulate them as fats really fast and give it the chance to spend the extra energy before going to bed that night.

Shower with cold water
We know that showering with cold water is awful. Each one of us wants to have a warm shower, at night before going to bed or in the morning to wake up. However, studies have shown that showering with cold water in the morning can help increase your energy, speed up the metabolism, and regulate your hormones. Moreover, once your body cools down you burn much more calories because it tries to warm you up. With cold showers, your metabolism will activate extremely fast.

Showering with cold water is also a great way to prepare your body for a big breakfast, which will regulate the blood sugar and reduce the cravings for food. However, it is recommended that you start showering at the temperature that suits you and then gradually make it colder. Once you reach to cold water, try to endure for 3 to 4 minutes.


Chew your food
You should do this, not only in the morning but also during the day with food that takes longer to eat. When you eat food rich in nutritive fibers, you will need a lot more effort to chew it. By doing this, you use your jaw more than usual, and this burns 5% more calories during the day. Natural food such as carrots, apple, and brown rice are rich in fibers which maintain the health of your stomach and keep you full for a longer time.

Eating food rich in fibers also help you reduce the calories at the same time increasing the burnt ones. This approach might not be enough to lose the 10 kilograms, but every small step counts! What is more important is that eating healthy food improves your whole diet. You will get all the necessary nutritive ingredients your body needs to improve.

If you manage to follow some of this advice every morning, you will wake up slimmer every morning. Of course, this is not a fast method of losing weight, but it is necessary that you follow it – which is much more effective than losing weight only to gain it again in a short time. Give these habits a chance in the next 40 days and they will help you lose the extra weight, improve your mood and make you more satisfied with your overall look.

However, keep in mind that these are only advice and tricks. Every person is different and if you feel the need, then you can change something. Don’t think that you need to follow these all at once. What is important is that once you decide to try something, you stick to it. The results might be visible even after 3 to 4 weeks, but give them a chance. If you make it you will be amazed.
