If you’ve been trying to lose weight for a while, the chances are that you’ll be feeling pretty fed up and uninspired, especially if you’ve struggled to drop the pounds.
It’s easy to feel like you should give up and accept a life of unhappiness with your body, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Below, we’ve put together four strategies you probably haven’t considered yet…
Intermittent fasting has exploded in popularity in recent years and the reason why? It really does work. The 16/8 Method is one of the most popular, requiring you to fast for sixteen hours a day and restricting your daily “eating window” to 8-10 hours.
It sounds tough, but it’s easy to fit in two or three meals during this period, and it can be as simple as not eating anything after dinner, and skipping breakfast. It can be tough to get used to at first, but if you carefully manage your time and food intake, it’s possible to lose weight using this method.
Huel Meal Replacement
Originating from the United Kingdom, Huel is a “complete food” product that is suitable for people of all ages, lifestyles, and weights – not necessarily just for those looking to lose weight.
Why is Huel so good? It provides nutritionally complete, convenient, affordable food with minimal impact on animals and the environment – basically, everything you need to lead a healthy, normal diet.

Life can get pretty hectic and sometimes it feels like things are pulling me in all directions! #ad Luckily with @Huel , I don't have to worry about skipping meals or eating something unhealthy and/or expensive. @Huel is a lifestyle, plant-based food brand. So when I am on the go or if I don't have any time to prepare a meal, I know that I can count on @Huel to provide a nutritionally balanced meal! #Huel
The drink includes oats, rice, peas, coconut, flaxseed, and a mix of vitamins and nutrients to provide you with all the carbohydrates, protein, fats, fibre, and all the 26 essential micronutrients your body needs to thrive – it’s filling, nutritious, and makes you less likely to grab a snack after breakfast or lunch.
Give it a go and see what happens.
People have been talking about the Keto dietary supplement for a number of years now, but the chances are you’ve not tried the Purefit Keto range.
Try this if you’re thinking of going on the ketogenic diet – a low-carb, high-fat diet that can help you burn fat more effectively.
There has been a number of studies citing the benefits of a keto diet, and it’s known to aid in losing excess body fat without hunger, and for reversing type 2 diabetes.
The science behind this technique is pretty complicated, but with a supplement, you can get started and lose weight.
Finally, if you want to lose weight through exercise, then high-intensity interval training makes sense. The ten-minute kettlebell blast is a popular technique, using two kettlebells to increase the load and help you see results much faster.
Do squat to overhead presses – they are demanding, as you’ll be moving the weights through a big range of motion – but this is good for fat loss and will help you to shape your abs.
