Surprising Ways to ReduceThe quick weight-loss diet plans that are common nowadays have little substance in them.

Stop Avoiding Egg Yolk

In a study at the U.K.'s University of Surrey, dieters, who ate two eggs daily for three months, lost the same amount of weight and cut cholesterol by the same amount as those who did not. You can add egg yolk in your balanced diet as they have protein, calcium and iron. Avoid consuming processed food as they have more cholesterol than egg yolk.


Don’t Kill Your Cravings

Instead of cutting your cravings down, satisfy them in moderation.  On every alternate day, eat small portions of the things you like. Killing cravings eventually will lead to overindulgence in your favourite food.


Eat as Many Meals as You Want

A new Canadian study in the British Journal of Nutrition has found that snacking does not curb your appetite. You, however, need to pay attention towards the quantity of your snacks. Try to include healthy snacks such as baked chips, sugar free cookies and oil free items. Remember that it is "energy in versus energy out” so you need to keep a check on the calories of your snacks.

No Need to Indulge in Low-Carb Diets

Instead of avoiding carbohydrates in your diet, eat five servings of grains daily, especially whole (oatmeal, brown rice, wheat). They are high in fiber and provide great energy. A moderation in carbs can help you lose about five pounds more than carb-avoiders.


Do Not Prohibit Alcohol

Studies have shown that though alcohol is calorie packed, women who drink moderately gain less weight than women who never drink. Alcohol slows digestive enzymes and hinder the breakdown of nutrients so the body does not absorb as much food as it would otherwise. Moderate consumption of alcohol can help you maintain a normal body weight.


Soothing Music can be a Saviour

While eating your meals, put on a soothing CD and you will end up consuming fewer calories. A study has shown that you chew your food faster when you listen to lively music.


Make Frequent Movements

People, who indulge in physical activities, tend to burn 800 calories more per day than people who sit for long hours.  Every movement of your body such as rearranging of your legs or walking while on phone boosts up your energy level and helps to cut down few calories.

These tips will prevent you from feeling deprived and you can indulge in your favourite foods, but with little precautions.
