Increase protein intake
Protein plays a major role in your weight loss journey.
A high protein intake will boost metabolism and – most importantly – reduce appetite.
Why does this happen?
Protein cuts down the production of hunger generating hormones in the brain and makes you feel full for a longer period of time.
Apart from this lean protein meats take longer to digest.
Did you know that protein keeps burning calories even while you are sleeping!
High protein diets make it easier to cut back on calories when compared to low ones.
Late night snacks are every dieter’s worst nightmare and one of the main reasons why people fail their diet goals.
Cut back on saturated fats
Also known as unhealthy fats these include animal based products such as meats, starchy vegetables and sugar.
These can also be packaged foods like potato chips, pastries, pizza and hamburgers.
Did you know that all fats contain 9 calories per gram of fat?
That’s more than twice the quantity present in carbs and protein.
Eliminating high fat foods from your diet will keep your weight in check and heart healthy!
Healthy weight means a lowered risk of developing diabetes, heart problems and other health problems later on in life.
You can swap your favorite cheat meal with a healthier option.
Switch red meats with skinless chicken, replace butter with olive or canola oil and start using low fat dairy products.
It’s not all bad news.
Eating more fresh fruits and vegetables along with whole grains will also work like a charm!
