Swap Sugary Drinks For Water Water is one of the best tools for weight loss because it
doesn't have any calories.It is also a great appetite
suppressant, and often when we think we're hungry, we're
really just thirsty. Water has no fat, no calories, no carbs,
no sugar, so drink plenty to help your weight-loss.
Veg Per Day
Fruit and vegetables taste
delicious and there's so much
variety to choose from. They're
a good source of vitamins and minerals, and dietary fiber. They can also help reduce the risk of heart disease,
stroke and some cancers. Fruit and vegetables are low in
fat and calories and high in taste.
Add More Fiber to Your Diet Fiber-rich foods decrease hunger, so you are likely to
eat less during the day. You can easily add more to your
diet by having high fiber cereal for breakfast, or as a
snack mixed with yogurt in the afternoon.
Eat Breakfast Did you know... in order to gain weight, sumo wrestlers in Japan don't eat breakfast? Really! Skipping breakfast slows down the metabolism and encourages weight gain.Start your day with a breakfast that combines fiber and lean protein, in order to rev up your metabolism and keep you full till lunchtime.Increase your Dairy Intake Not getting enough calcium triggers the release of a hormone that causes fat storage. Meeting your daily
calcium needs helps you burn fat more efficiently.
Choose low-fat dairy products for the nutrients your body needs, without the extra calories.
Spice it up Increasing your intake of capsaicin temporarily boosts your metabolism and
helps you feel satiated after meals. Try adding Tabasco sauce to your eggs,
curry to your soup, and hot peppers to your chili. Spices will add flavor and health benefits to your dish.
Start your Meal with Soup Soup is one of the most filling foods, and a big bowl of it is a great way to avoid higher calorie temptations. Aim for broth based soups filled with vegetables, which tend to have a lot fewer calories than cream based soups.
