Khan said one can smartly create a ‘calorie deficit’ in their diet without compromising on what they eat. A calorie deficit is essentially a shortage in the number of calories that one consumes, relative to the number of calories that are needed for maintaining current body weight.
Here are some sure-shot ways to lose weight without dieting:
1. Weight training
The nutritionist advised that this process will help increase the metabolism by increasing your muscle.
A hit among fitness and health conscious people, intermittent fasting involves fasting for a period of time after eating a healthy meal. The basic principle is to give the body time to digest food, burn out excess body fat and detox. It is considered more attuned to the body’s circadian rhythm.
3. Having 1 g protein per kg of body weight
The expert advises that you eat and include more proteins in your diet, so you can stay full and satiated for longer, as opposed to feeling hungry and taking meals throughout the day.
