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.
- Don’t eat starch and sugar separate from protein.
- Eat whatever else you want as long as it’s immediately after the protein.
Why? If you eat starch and sugar separate from protein your body will turn them into stored fat. Eating starches and sugars with protein keeps the body from absorbing the fats and sugars.
4) Eat dessert immediately after your meal.
Why? If you eat dessert immediately after your meal you won’t eat as much because you’ll be full.
5) Exercise 5 times a week for 45 minutes.
Why? Exercise can increase metabolism, or how many calories you burn in a day. It can also help you maintain and increase lean body mass, which also helps increase number of calories you burn each day.
6) Remember to drink your water.
Why? If you’re not drinking enough water your body will hang on to the water you do drink as water weight.
7) Use carb and fat blockers.
Why? Carb and fat blockers, which you can get at MD Diet prevent 30 percent of the carbs and fats you eat from being absorbed by your body.
