There is no one correct way to lose weight. What helps one person shed pounds and fat may not work on another.
Because we’re all so different, from our food preferences to our body chemistry, the only successful way to reach and maintain a healthy weight is to find what works for you.
There probably are a million ways to gain 10 pounds, but here are 16 ways to lose them—whether it is the your first or last 10 pounds—these tips have been proven to work.
1. Keep hydrated at all times
Research shows that dieters who guzzle plenty of H2O lose more weight than those who don’t. There’s a reason why Tom Brady looks THAT good and is still playing in the NFL past the age of 40— in his recently released book “The TB12 Method”, his diet consists of drinking up to 2.5 gallons of water a day. And to break it down for you, that’s 36 glasses of water a day!
2. Go vegetarian
In general, vegetarians have lower body weights than their meat-eating peers. It won’t be a bad idea to follow their lead—at least until you drop a few pounds. But still, keep the cooking clean—no deep fried tempura vegetables.
3. Or better yet, go vegan
If you want to go a bit further (and also to be even kinder to animals), take it to the next level by swearing off eggs and dairy, too. Cheese can make you fat.
4. Eat fresh
Eliminate packaged foods and eat only fresh ingredients you’ve prepared. No bags, boxes, cans, or cartons allowed. Simple enough?
5. Cut out sugar (or be less sweet)
Everyone knows sugar isn’t healthy, but when you start reading labels, you find it in unexpected places, like pasta sauce and frozen entrées. Cutting the sugar out of your diet will mean healthier meals overall.
6. Cut out the white flour
The short-term elimination of floury foods like white bread and pastries can efficiently kick-start your weight loss plan. Besides the great taste of white floured foods, it doesn’t have any nutritional benefits as all the vitamins and fiber have been “processed” out.
7. Sleep more
Research shows that those who don’t get enough shut-eye eat more and reach for more fattening grub than people who get plenty of rest. So, pull down all the blinds and get at least 8 hours of sleep a day.
8. Eat at home as often as possible
Meals eaten away from home have 134 more calories, on average.
9. Eat nuts
A recent study found that dieters who snacked on shelled pistachios shed more pounds than those who ate other snacks, even though they contained the same amount of calories.
10. Cut out all sugary drinks, diet included
Large sodas have 500-plus calories, and juice isn’t much better. Be like Tom and drink water instead.
11. Stand while you work
Standing burns at least 30% more calories than sitting on your backside all day.
12. Eat soup for dinner
Soup’s high water content makes it a low-calorie and filling option. Just steer clear of the creamy kinds.
13. Stop snacking
If you did not know this, the real reason French women don’t get fat is because it’s a cultural faux pas to eat between meals.
14. Spice up your meals
Chilli peppers really can rev your metabolism, according to research conducted by the University of Alberta.
15. Don’t skip breakfast
Those who enjoy a morning meal have been shown over and over to be slimmer than breakfast skippers.
16. Use this odd “carb trick” that burns up to 1 pound per day.
If you’re like most women trying to lose weight… you diet, you count calories, you tear up the treadmill, and…nothing.
That’s how 40-year-old Carly Donovan, an overweight mother with prediabetes was feeling…
She did “everything right” and never lost an inch.
Until she stumbled on this strange “carb-pairing” trick and burned away an unheard of 22lbs pounds in just 13 days.
And because of this one simple shift in her eating, she shed pounds and inches from her body without starving herself and without a lick of exercise!
With the same “carb-pairing” trick Carly dropped a total of 37lbs in the FIRST month and she shocked her doctor by completely reversing ALL pre-diabetes symptoms!
