Supercharge Your Weight Loss
Want to turbo charge your weight loss? Our weight loss shortcuts will help you get quick results and find your way to a slimmer you.
Fill up with fiber
One of the keys to weight loss is simply cutting calories and eating less. But it's hard to reduce your caloric intake when your belly is grumbling all day long. Filling up with foods that are high in fiber will keep you feeling satisfied and full for longer.
Ditch the junk
Have you ever noticed that when you eat unhealthy foods, you never feel full? Junk food is empty calories and so even though you are eating, your body is not getting the nourishment it needs. Lean protein, high-fiber carbs, raw nuts and seeds and plenty of fruits and veggies are the best thing to fill you up and keep your hunger at bay.
Eat fat-fighting foods
Want to blast away those extra pounds? Choose foods that are high in fiber, low in carbohydrates and bursting with healthy fats and lean protein. Start your day with oatmeal topped with a handful of raw almonds and fresh berries. Pack a green smoothie with protein powder for a snack. Fill up at lunch and dinner with lots of leafy greens and protein like salmon, tuna, turkey or lean beef. Wash it all down with plenty of fresh water or green tea, which can actually help to boost your metabolism and energy.
