Summer is fast approaching. Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer. You need to lose weight fast! Don’t worry; there are fast ways to lose weight, without fads or pills. Eating right and exercise is the fastest most effective way to lose weight for the summer. Here are some healthy eating tips that help you lose weight fast.
1. Prepare Your Own Meals
Preparing your own meals is the best, fastest, and most successful way to lose weight. By making your own meals, you can control your portions. If you don’t have time, at least make your own breakfast. A nutritious, low-calorie breakfast, is the best way to get your metabolism working in the morning.
2. Eat Normal Serving Sizes
You need to know how big a normal size serving is. One serving of meat or fish should be about the size of the inside of your palm. A serving of carbs should be the size of your fist. Open up both hands and your serving of veggies should fit right in there, and any healthy fats should be about the size of the top of your thumb. More importantly, your body knows to stop eating.
3. Eat More Fiber
For healthy weight loss, fiber is essential. Fiber makes your digestive system run more smoothly, helps your body to naturally detox, and increase your metabolism. All of this will help you feel healthier too.
4. Balanced Diet and Protein
To lose weight fast, you need to have a balanced diet. Protein build muscle, muscle burns fat. You need to eat of protein with each meal; eggs, white meat, and fish or tofu, beans, asparagus, and quinoa if you are a vegetarian. Protein also helps you feel fuller, and repairs your muscles after workouts.
5. Don’t Starve
Skipping meals for weight loss doesn’t work. You will be less productive, and when yo start eating again, the weight comes right back. Starving yourself causes your body to reserve the fat that your are trying to burn off because it needs the energy.
6. 3 Small Meals and 2 Snacks is Better Than 3 Big Meals
The more often you eat, the less you eat and the less hungry you feel. This makes you eat less. The 2 snacks you have in-between meals must be healthy however.
7. Schedule Your Snacks
Have your snacks, schedule them 3 hours after breakfast, and 3 hours after lunch. Eat at the same time every day and your body will know exactly when to expect its next meal. That means no unnecessary cravings, emotional eating, and off-schedule snacking.
8. Don’t Bring Junk Food Home
if you don’t have junk food in the house you can’t eat it, plain and simple.
