If you want to shed some pounds, but you’re not into the idea of a complicated diet with hard-to-remember rules, you've come to the right place. These four simple changes will help you lose weight fast, and get you back into your favorite jeans in no time. The best part: there's no "cleansing" required.
Make veggies the star of your mealsTime to load up on those vegetables. I’m talking at least one to two cups (a cup is the size of a tennis ball) at each meal, even breakfast. In addition to being low in calories, veggies are rich in nutrients and high in both fiber and water.
By making them the main component of every meal, you’ll eat fewer calories without sacrificing nutrition, and you'll still feel full.
For breakfast, scramble a few eggs in extra-virgin olive oil, Italian seasoning, turmeric, and black pepper, with a handful or two of chopped veggies, like spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms, and bell pepper; enjoy with a side of fresh fruit.
At lunch, opt for a salad rather than a sandwich or wrap. And whip up dinners comprised of “noodles” or “rice” made from veggies (spiralized, chopped, or shredded) paired with a lean source of protein (like salmon, chicken breast, or lentils) and a healthy fat (such as avocado, nuts, or seeds).
