MD Diet’s Spooky Tips For Scaring The Pounds Away

1) Start your day with a high protein breakfast. Why? Protein is more filling and starting your day with protein will keep you fuller so you don’t crave sugar and carbs. If you eat carbs first, you will crave carbs the rest of the day.  Protein is also calorie negative and takes more calories to burn than it provides. 2) Begin meals with a green salad using vinegar and oil dressing. Why? Begining your meal with something healthy will help you feel satisfied prior to the meal so you eat less unhealthy food. 3) After the salad eat double your normal protein serving size.

All of this has been accomplished without depleting my budget–in other words it has been very cost effective for me… I can’t sing their praises loud enough! As the saying goes, “The proof is in the pudding.” Come try it for yourself!” – Jean
