This first step is SUPER easy and SUPER duper cheap, so anyone who is serious about making changes should be able to do this without even breaking a sweat.
Let’s Get Started
1. REPLACE and ADD
Trade in one of your snacks and replace it with a piece of fruit at least once EVERY SINGLE DAY. If you are not a big snack person, think about what you are eating and think about what you can switch out and replace with a fruit. For example, cutback on the amount of grains you eat, or cut down on the amount of meat you eat, and replace it with a fruit. If you can add more than one fruit that is even better.
This is a small step, with HUGE payout.
2. Pack And Eat These Three Fruits
Both my husband and I used this technique with these three fruits: bananas, grapefruits and oranges and in less than four months we lost over 40 pounds. This really works!! One or two of these every day is fine.
Why these 3 are my favorites and why I think they will be yours too?
- These are portable power foods, packed with vitamins and minerals.
- They are easy to find and are around all year long.
- They are low in calories.
- They have fiber.
- They don’t cost a lot of money.
- BONUS: These fruits are pretty safe, even if they are not organic.
Not convinced? Here are a few extra benefits:
- Grapefruits boost your metabolism.
- Oranges have tons of vitamin C.
- Bananas have a load of potassium.
- They will fill you up so you aren’t quite as hungry.
3. Eat A Salad At Least Once A Day With A Healthy Salad Dressing
Salads are a great addition to any meal, they are healthy and they pack a big punch. The one thing that you must consider is you can’t load them up with heavy high calorie salad dressings. A salad with lettuce, beans, tomatoes, cucumbers can cut your appetite and put your weight loss in high gear. All that fiber is great for your system and it will help you stay full longer. Shoot for salad dressings that are less than 100 calories for 2 tablespoon and even better make your own. I was amazed at how much I enjoyed a dressing of olive oil with herbs and seasoning. Get creative.
4. Water, Water and More Water
Drinking 1/2 of your weight in oz’s may seem scary or even impossible, but it is a key in any weight loss strategy. If the idea of drinking that much water makes you want to cry, don’t worry I have got great tips to help you want to read this. .
