Here are 11 Things you can try to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
1. Eat more Protein, Fat and Vegetables. So bacon and eggs taste great in the morning.
Substitute buttered toast and jam, a breakfast muffin with carrots and celery.
Best protein sources are:
Meat: Beef, chicken, lamb
Fish and Seafood: Salmon, Tuna, trout, shrimp
Eggs: Whole eggs with the yolk.
2. Cut back on sugars. It’s strange but true that your body wants to store anything more that one teaspoon of sugar as fat. If you keep adding sugar as a fuel source your body won’t switch to burning your extra fat. It’s ok after you are seeing gains to have a “cheat day” a day that you eat some carbs and sweets. But take it easy when you do.
3. Drink more water. It Is the secret weapon of weight loss. Make sure your water is filtered and from a glass or metal container. Plastic can leach unwanted chemicals into your water. It aids with digestion, elimination and overall health. As you burn fat you will want to flush the toxins that may be stored within it with water. Also identify and eliminate any toxins that are in your home.
