If you want to start losing weight faster, then the first thing to know is that you CAN! And the second thing to know is that you can do so 100% naturally! There are many things I learned that helped me lose a ton of weight lightning fast, naturally, and permanently. But the following 4 diet tips certainly made a HUGE impact on my goals! In fact, I wound up losing 25 pounds a month! Check it out…
1.) I ensured I didn’t deprive myself…
Listen, I’m not going to sit here and try to act like dieting and living a healthier lifestyle is a walk in the park… especially in the beginning. I know how difficult it can be. And one of the things that can make it incredibly difficult is by completely eliminating the foods you love.
And this is something I highly recommend you AVOID doing. To some, this may come as good news, and to others this may be pretty confusing. No matter what you may be thinking, avoiding depriving yourself completely is a recipe for disaster.
The reasons why is because:
A.) It will be a higher possibility that you’ll cave in and break your diet.
B.) You’ll become extremely frustrated and agitated. PHEW, I just chuckled a little after writing that last sentence since I just finished watching a zombie movie (lol)!
C.) You’ll miss out on the opportunity to actually SKYROCKET your metabolism by eating the foods you love! Seriously!
2.) As I mentioned before, it is important to eat ALL types of nutrients…
This is what I ate plenty of:
I ate plenty of protein, a moderate amount of healthy carbs (fiber), a very tiny amount of bad carbs (sugar based foods… and I ate foods like this after I worked out), a moderate amount of healthy fat (such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated… which you’ll find in olive oil, fish, and nuts for example), foods high in antioxidants (such as berries and dark green veggies), and foods high in vitamins and minerals (such as fruits and veggies).
3.) Here are the foods I avoided…
I avoided processed foods, salty foods, foods very high in bad carbs, foods high in bad fat, and foods containing trans fat, high fructose corn syrup, and artificial sweetener’s.
4.) I had small 4-6 small meals a day (which was apart of the diet program I went on)…
I’m pretty sure you’ve heard about eating several meals a day instead of the usual 2 or 3 meals. The reasons why are very clear:
A.) First, you’ll end up boosting your metabolism. This is because you are keeping your digestive system active and healthy by not overloading it with too many calories at once.
B.) Second, you’ll decrease hunger pangs by eating the right nutrients and by also keeping yourself from getting hungry.
C.) Third, you’ll consistently be supplying your body with the nutrients it needs to build lean muscle tissue (such as protein).
D.) And lastly, if you choose the right diet program based off this method (like the program HERE that I used), you’ll also increase your bodies fat burning hormones. If this happens, you could literally lose 10 pounds or more every 2 weeks just by eating NORMAL FOODS!
