I’ll be straight with you: I do believe that tracking your food intake is the most effective way to know where you are and to progress toward your fitness goals. That’s because weight loss is all about consuming les calories than you burn, and tracking them is the most quantifiable way to do that.
But remember, the best strategy is the one you will stick to. Some people like tracking calories as much as Han Solo likes being told his odds (he doesn’t). If that’s you, don’t start with tracking! Implement these tips to begin seeing some results. They will help you to reduce calories by default.
Eat more protein! Protein is satiating. Studies have shown that eating a high-protein breakfast can help you lose weight. Studies have also repeatedly shown that high-protein diets are better for fat loss and hunger than low-protein ones. This is true because protein is less likely to be stored as fat, and because it is more filling.
High-fiber, low-calorie foods are a secret weapon in the fight against fat. This is because the fiber is filling, but the foods themselves do not hog your daily calories. Eating fruits like apples, bananas, oranges, and berries and veggies like spinach, lettuce, broccoli, and cucumbers are great for this. Not only do they go a long way toward keeping you full, but they also provide excellent nutrition!
