The best way to lose weight is to improve your diet.
Fad diets almost never work and are terrible for your health. And while being active is generally good for you, research tends to show that what you eat plays a much bigger role in losing weight.
The problem is, the American diet is awful. It’s full of fat, sugar, and salt. People eat highly processed foods that contain countless ingredients, chemicals, colorings, and preservatives. You can’t lose weight and be healthy eating that.
Instead, you need to start eating real food, like fresh fruits and vegetables, seeds and nuts, whole grains, and lean meats. You don’t need a radical, restrictive diet. You just need to make a few simple changes. These 6 are a good place to start.
6 Simple Swaps For Better Health And Weight Loss Help
- Cereal and Pastries Out, Protein Smoothies In
Breakfast is no time for sugary cereals and pastries. You need to get your metabolism started off the right way with a healthy helping of protein.
Try making one using your favorite superfoods, like almond butter, flax seeds, berries, and bananas, for balanced blood sugar levels, long-lasting energy and accelerated weight loss.
- Bad Oils Out, Good Oils In
The most common cooking oils, like canola, vegetable, and corn, all have inflammatory properties because of the omega-6 fats they contain. Better options include extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil.
- Processed Snacks Out, Nuts In
When you’re looking for a snack you want something quick and easy. The problem is, most things like that are highly processed and full of sugar. A better alternative is to keep your kitchen stocked with healthy nuts.
Nuts are quick and easy and keep you full for longer. They help stabilize blood sugar levels and are packed with protein, fiber, and minerals. Just be sure to get them raw or lightly toasted and try to only eat a handful at a time.
- Cheap Meat Out, High Quality Meat In
Skimping on meat and eggs is one of the worst things you can do your health, as they are commonly filled with dangerous hormones, antibiotics, and GMOs.
You should spend the extra money to make sure your eggs and meat are free of pesticides and hormones by only eating grass-fed beef and free range eggs.
- Bad Fats Out, Healthy Fats In
Bad fats can cause all kinds of health problems including heart disease, obesity, and diabetes, and are far too common in the American diet. The inflammation they cause can you leave you feeling seriously ill.
But don’t denounce all fats. Good fats, like the kind you get from avocados, fish, almond butter, and grass-fed beef, are actually crucial to leading a healthy lifestyle. They play a key role in the health of your cells and can prevent a variety of diseases.
- Coffee Out, Green Tea In
While some recent studies have shown that coffee may have some health benefits, it also has definite drawbacks. In particular, coffee can disrupt the proper functioning of your liver and kick your stress hormones into overdrive, especially if you’re drinking multiple cups a day.
A better alternative is green tea. You still get a little caffeine, but with a healthy dose of antioxidants and no liver problems.
