High protein diets can reduce obsessive thoughts about food by 60%, reduce desire for late-night snacking by half, and make you so full that you automatically eat 441 fewer calories per day… just by adding protein to your diet. Start your day as you mean to go.

Protein Sources:

  • Meat – Beef, chicken, pork, lamb, bacon, etc.
  • Fish and Seafood – Salmon, trout, shrimps, lobsters, etc.
  • Eggs – Omega-3 enriched or pastured eggs are best.

2. Cut Back On Sugars And Starches.

The most important part is to cut back on sugars and starches (carbs). These are the foods that stimulate secretion of insulin the most. If you didn’t know already, insulin is the main fat storage hormone in the body.

When insulin goes down, fat has an easier time getting out of the fat stores and the body starts burning fats instead of carbs. Another benefit of lowering insulin is that your kidneys shed excess sodium and water out of your body, which reduces bloat and unnecessary water weight

3. Eat Plenty Of Vegetables.

By lifting weights, you will burn a few calories and prevent your metabolism from slowing down, which is a common side effect of losing weight. Studies on low-carb diets show that you can even gain a bit of muscle while losing significant amounts of body fat.

5. Get Plenty Of Fiber.

Some studies have shown that consuming enough fiber (20g-30g per day) can significantly reduce fat, especially in the belly area. Seek out fiber rich foods and get plenty of them! It also keeps you regular!

High-Fiber Foods:

  • Peas
  • Beans
  • Lentils
  • Broccoli
  • Sprouts
  • Raspberries
  • Bran Flakes
  • Oats

6. Walk More.

Like exercising, walking will help burn more calories. The more calories you are burning, the greater your chance of burning fat. Instead of driving- walk! Instead of taking the lift- walk the stairs. Get yourself a step counter or use your phone (some phones have them built-in), to keep an eye on how many steps you take each day.

7. Drink Coffee.

Start your day with a cup of coffee. Caffeine is a natural diuretic and an excellent source of antioxidants, which protect your cells from damage. You can have up to 400mg — about a Venti Starbucks coffee.

Not much of a coffee drinker? Tea is also a natural diuretic, and types of herbal tea such as dandelion or fennel root can also lend a hand. In fact: When a recent study compared the metabolic effect of green tea (in extract) with that of a placebo, researchers found that the green-tea drinkers burned about 70 additional calories in a 24-hour period.
