Weight loss is a challenge for almost everyone who is just starting out. There are many ways to lose weight quickly but most of them leave you hungry, grumpy, and unsatisfied. That is why we’ve gathered 3 steps to be paired with a strategic weight loss program that will help you lose weight faster, and in a healthy way.
1. Reduce sugar and starches
Sugar and starches (carbohydrates) stimulate the secretion of insulin the most, which is the main fat storage hormone in the body. When insulin levels are low, fat gets out of storage and the body burns it – so you want to keep your insulin levels pretty low.
Aside from fat burning powers, lowering insulin helps your kidneys shed excess sodium and water, thereby reducing bloating and water retention.
Cutting carbs and portion control will help you eat fewer calories without going hungry.
2. Eat Protein, Vegetables, and Fat
Eating a balanced meal, and by balanced we mean a meal consisting of protein, veggies and mono-saturated fat, has been shown to boost metabolism and reduce cravings by 60%.
Also, here’s a list of low-carb vegetables.
When most people hear fat they clinch, however there is a difference between good fat and bad fat. For instance, you can swap your cooking oils with olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, butter, or tallow.
Sidenote: one cheat day a week is welcome – though not necessary.
Yes, diet consists of a bulk of your weight loss success, but it is recommended to pair it with an exercise routine. Lifting weights, jogging, or even just walking regularly can help you burn more calories, prevent your metabolism from slowing down, and gain muscle while losing fat.
