Not everyone’s born with the good stuff (yeah I’m talking about you J Lo). Some of us really have to work for that bodacious, voluptuous, sumptuous figure.
There are more women out there who are not satisfied with their bodies than there are who are completely pleased with their figures.
With the luxury of time we have on our hands coming off the end of the circuit breaker, coupled with the evil, irresistible temptation of the sweet and savory stuff, there is really little room to negotiate the discipline to stay in shape.
The frustration is very much real, much like your bruised self-esteem. Before you give up the good fight, let us look at why you’re not dropping those pounds, and how you can do so.

Please Restart Your System
Bloatware is usually what we call the stuff that slows your computer systems down, but this term is definitely applicable in the bodily context as well.
The bloatware we suffer from slows down our metabolism, which is our digestive system.
Constant burping, feeling full even before meals, and the mysterious shrinking of your clothes are known symptoms of the mentioned bloatware.
What you need at this point, is a detox and cleanse to reboot your system.

Amongst the slew of DIY weight-loss tips out there, it’s no easy feat to separate the ones that actually work and the ones that don’t.
There are however, a few choice dieting tips that have slipped under the radar of the general public, that are actually scientifically proven to work.
Let us look at some low-key, high-yield dieting tricks.
Eggs for breakfast.
Studies have proven that a starting off the day with a meal of eggs can actually fill you up pretty nicely and result in lower calorie consumption for the next 36 hours of the day, because they are so filling… and definitely taste better than celery.
Load up on black coffee.
Another common product frequently stigmatized for its undesirable properties, coffee is actually loaded with antioxidants that aid in weight loss.
It has been proven that caffeine in coffee can boost daily metabolism by 3-11%, and accelerate the rate of fat burning by up to 29%.
Just make sure you don’t negate its benefits by adding too much sugar in your coffee!
Take probiotic supplements.
By probiotic supplements, I do not mean just Yakult. There are probiotic supplements out there that not only boost your digestive health, they even contain ingredients that actually can prevent acne and improve the complexion of your skin.
