This incredibly simple plan is geared to help reduce your appetite, make you lose weight without feeling hungry, and improve your metabolic health.
Step 1: Cut Out Most Sugars and Carbs
This is important because these foods help stimulate the secretion of insulin in your body, which is the main fat storage hormone. When it has gone down, your body starts burning fat instead of the carbs you had. You’ll also lose some water weight as your kidneys will get rid of excess sodium and water.
Step 2: Eat More Protein, Vegetables, and Fat Each Day
For every meal, try to have these three main groups in it. It will make sure you have the 20-50 grams of recommended carbs and protein alone can help boost your metabolism significantly.
A lot of green vegetables, like celery and lettuce, are very low-carb foods, which means you could have big servings of them each day without going over the recommended amount.
Having natural fats and low-fat foods will also help to improve your diet and keep you healthy.
Step 3: Lift Weights/ Do some Cardio!
Exercise isn’t incredibly important to lose weight, but it will help a lot. Working out 3 or 4 times a week will give you the best results. Do a 5 to 10-minute warm up, lift weights, and stretch out once you are done.
Lifting weights helps you to burn some calories and makes sure your metabolism won’t slow down, preventing you from losing weight. If you can’t lift weights, or you don’t really want to, do some cardio, like swimming or jogging. Even simply walking will help your body out more than staying in one place all day would.
