What doesn’t work is how much importance you give to each of the three factors. These few tips will certainly work for you only if you are determined to follow them.
Here are 7 Easy Tips for a Slimmer Body
1. Make Water Your Go-to Drink:
Water was the only drink that man used to go-to till he got his hands on juices, soda, cola and alcohol. They got so much leverage over the plain-old (healthy) alternative that water was just not a drink anymore. It’s time to put back the star in focus-yes, its water.
Drink water after you wake up, before your meals, after your meals and also in between. It will stop cravings and overeating and that means a slimmer body, isn’t it?

Proteins help you feel fuller and therefore are very important in your diet for a slimmer body. Make sure to include lots of proteins in your diet.

3. Greens , Reds, Yellows and Blues
Those beautiful colors found in nature must be in your plate everyday and atleast four or five servings of those. Fruits and veggies are very important for your slimmer body. They fill you up and provide you with vitamins and minerals.

You need a slimmer body and lesser weight, so you have to pick up some weights. Weight training helps to increase your body metabolism and even lose calories while you sleep. And it’s not for the boys only. Are you listening girls? You won’t grow big if you lift weights, rather you will slim down.
7. Early to Bed and Early to Rise
Your body needs rest to be able to repair and recover from a day’s hard work, both physical and mental. Your sleep time is when your body gets into maintenance mode. It take care of all the dead and damaged calls and tissues and helps you be healthy. So, you can’t achieve a slimmer body if you don’t let it rest enough, atleast 7-8 hours a night. Is that too much to ask for?
