Simple Ways To Lose
Five Pounds Quickly Women

Too lazy for a workout? No problem. Here’s a quick fix plan that will help you lose the first five pounds ... without trying hard at all.

Swap the two tablespoons of sugar you have with your morning cup of coffee with a small apple.

Do this every day and you can lose up to 5 pounds in in six months without any other changes.

The next time you go to a café, ask for a skimmed milk latte

Make the swap from a whole milk latte five times a week, and that’s around 5-7 pounds in around 10 months.

When you are out to have dinner, have a soup starter. Compared to melon, or cheese and crackers containing the same calories, tomato soup significantly reduces the intake of a second food course. If you cut out 100 calories a day as a result that adds up to losing 5 pounds in eight months.

Take your time and eat your meal. Your brain only starts registering you’re eating after about 10 minutes. So the more slowly you eat, the more chance your brain has of telling you that you've had your fill. Chew every mouthful carefully. Expect to shave off at least 125 calories a day, adding up to a weight loss of about 5-7 pounds in just over six months.

Have eggs for breakfast: According to American research at the Rochester Centre for Obesity, eating eggs for breakfast could help to reduce your calorie intake throughout the rest of the day, by more than 400 calories. In a study of 30 overweight women, those who ate a couple of eggs for breakfast, felt less hungry and ate a smaller lunch and dinner. Saving 400 calories a day will lose about 5-7 pounds in just over two months.

A lot us can’t do without thick, creamy yogurt to go with our meal. Well, you can certainly enjoy your yogurt; simply swap to low-fat frozen yogurt.

Jog on the spot while the TV ads are on: That could add up to around 15 minutes exercise an evening, burning around 150 calories. Do the same every day to lose up to 8 pounds in six months.

A tried and tested method:
Switch to green tea — four or five cups a day could lose you about three kilos in about 10 months through the boosting effect green tea has on fat burning.

Now here is a really simple trick. Fidget more. Taking every opportunity to move can make quite a difference to the amount of calories you burn. Researchers at the Mayo clinic found slimmer people burnt up to 350 calories more each day through toetapping, muscle-clenching and pacing. You could shift over 4-6 pounds in less than three months.
