Eat Fewer Carbs and More Lean Proteins
Try eliminating or drastically reducing all starchy carbs and sugars for the week. Replace these with low-carb vegetables, while also increasing your intake of eggs, lean meats and fish.
Eat a high-protein breakfast
The researchers found that eating a high-protein breakfast made the young women feel fuller throughout the day and eat a smaller dinner.
Starting the day with a low-protein breakfast or no breakfast at all made the study subjects more likely to graze on unhealthy foods throughout the day.
Why not to try the green smoothie ?
(Kale leaves, Greek yogurt, Almond Milk, Mango, a tablespoon of natural peanut butter)
Eating protein early in the day seems to affect gastrointestinal hormones, which signal the brain to adjust appetite and satiety.
Avoid sugary drinks and fruit juice
Soft drinks are very high in sugar and kilojoules, and provide no nutritional value other than fluid.
Drinks containing added sugar include sugar-sweetened soft drinks and cordials, fruit drinks, vitamin-style waters, flavoured mineral waters, energy and sports drinks.
Eat fresh fruit and vegetables instead of drinking juice.
- Supply fibre to your diet and help prevent constipation
- Healthier eating and drinking habits.
Eat the whole fruit or vegetable, and drink plain tap water or milk rather than juice.
Drink water a half hour before meals
That allows the body to absorb the nutrients.
Just drinking a pint of water, three times a day, before your main meals may help reduce your weight.
