Toss out the Junk Food

Junk food, or sugary, fatty, processed foods are the biggest obstacle to effective weight loss. The first step to a slimmer, fitter body, is tossing out all of the junk food in your cabinets. Commit to losing weight by beginning the week with strong action towards changing the way you eat. Removing junk food gets rid of the temptation that leads to snacking and sliding back into your old habits.

Tip:  junk food is more than just sugary snacks and drinks. Also look for convenience foods like frozen pizzas or things with empty carbohydrates such as rice cakes.

You are What You Eat

Once the junk food is gone, fill your pantry with healthy basics that stimulate weight loss. Nutrient rich foods, foods with high fiber, and lean proteins help your body rid itself of fat and gives you the energy you need to get moving! Good fats such as olive oils, seeds and nuts add flavor to food while also providing the vitamins and minerals your body needs to lose 5 pounds in a week.

Tip: some basic foods to have in your kitchen include oatmeal, flax seeds, almonds, walnuts, or pistachios, fat bursting fruits such as raspberries, blackberries or blueberries, and lean proteins such as fish or organic poultry.

Plan Meals for the Week

Planning your meals ahead of time lessens the desire to reach for junk food by making sure you have nutritious diet friendly meals and snacks readily available. Save time and money by going to the grocery store once and purchasing all the snacks and meals you’ll need for the week.

Tip: make a list before you go to the store to avoid getting overwhelmed.

Eat Six Small Meals Per Day

Eating smaller more frequent meals helps you manage hunger, eat less, and maintain a healthy diet. Schedule your meals and snacks in addition to planning our meals to keep from reaching for sugary, processed foods as a temporary hunger or energy fix.

Tip: avoid eating meals close to bedtime to keep your metabolism from slowing down.

Drink Water

Increasing the water in your diet will help your body detox, provide hydration, add energy, clear skin, and lead to dramatic weight loss. It really is that simple! Drink 8 ounces of water as soon as you wake up. Drink another 16 ounces of water with breakfast, 16 ounces at lunch, 16 ounces with dinner, and 8 ounces with each of your three snacks. Drink another 8 ounces before bed. By following these guidelines, you will have more energy, feel more alert, feel healthier and see the weight slide off.

By committing to weight loss by changing your diet and drinking more water, you will see dramatic changes in the way you look and feel. Follow these simple guidelines to lose 5 pounds in just one week.
