Ok in today’s post I will be informing you on a few ways you can lose weight simply. These ways are not going to be mind-blowing at least I don’t think they will be. But very easy and effective making it no problem to implement into your everyday life.

Let’s get to it.

Simple Weight Loss Tips

You must eat protein fat and veggies – Throughout your day in each meal, you consume it should always include a protein source, a fat source along with low carb veggies.

Doing this will bring down your carb consumption down the safe ranges of 20-50 grams a day.

This is vital to losing weight.

Meat 1

Protein Foods

  • Meat, Beef, Chicken, Pork, Lamb, Bacon, and so on.
  • Sea Food Fish etc.
  • Eggs – those of you who follow my website have seen me mention this before. But eggs are high in Omega-3 fatty acids. I recommend you to buy enriched or pastured eggs. For they are the better.

Weight Lift At Least 4 Times A Week

If you have weights in your home that’s great no matter what kind of weight it is.

Be sure to lift it in 10-20 times with 3-5 reps per week. If you don’t have any weightlifting equipment at the house I would suggest you go to your local gym.

If you’re not sure what to do ask a trainer for some tips. Don’t just pick up weights and start pumping iron like it’s nothing.

Weights

But take the time out before you start to stretch and possibly some warm-up lifts to make sure you’re comfortable with the weight.

Lifting weights will burn some calories at the same time prevent your metabolism from decreasing.

That being a common side effect of losing weight. If weight lifting isn’t your thing or not an option for you. Then you can alternate to doing some cardio workouts running, walking, swimming, and jogging will all do just fine.

Honorable Mentions (Fast Short and Sweet)

 

  • Get a Good Night’s Sleep Always – Poor sleep is one of the strongest risks factors for weight gain.

 

  • Eat Your Food Slowly – Faster eaters gain more weight over time. Eating slower makes you feel more full and boots weight-reducing hormones.

 

  • Eat Whole Food Preferably Unprocessed – It tends to be more filling and healthier.

 

  • Use Smaller Plates – Can’t put unnecessary food in spaces you don’t have.

 

  • Choose Weight Loss-Friendly Food – Eat foods that are beneficial to you losing weight.

 

  • Avoid Sugary Drinks and Fruit Juices – I hate to say this but these are the most fattening things you can consume into your body. Stop drinking them will help you lose weight.

 

  • Eat A High Protein Breakfast – By eating a high-protein breakfast has been shown time and time again to reduce cravings and calorie intake throughout the day/week/year.

 

  • Drink Tea or Coffee – The caffeine in them boots your metabolism by 3-11%. I will share with you at the end of this post my green tea recommendation.

 

  • Eat Soluble Fiber – Soluble fibers will reduce fat. More so in the belly area. Which is generally the main target when weight loss is approached.

Do Not Starve Yourself For Weight Loss

If you have an eating disorder that’s one thing. But if you just approach weight loss with the plan of just not eating to accomplish weight loss is not the route to go.

It’s not healthy and can result in some very ugly encounters with the grim reaper.

Just eat low-carb meals its various meals out there you can fix quick and easy which are low in carbs.

Conclusion

  1. It is not very often that weight loss sites give you what you should eat, how you should exercise and how often to do each.
    This info is helpful to the beginner that is looking for a place to start. With so much information out there on this topic this is very helpful.
    SUGGESTION: Break down the list of foods you provide into a grocery list and then combine some of your favorite recipes from the list and make a eBook/cookbook as a guide to help the newbie along in the kitchen too! You can monetize this or provide as a free gift!

  2. Hi Gant,

    Short, sweet and to the point! I’ve started trying different diets lately this past year.

    I like that your site has most of the information broken down into doing this, do that, don’t touch this type of writing.

    I actually jumped on the Smoothie Train to help slim down a good amount with training on my M5 Bowflex Trainer. Have you heard of HIIT training? That to has helped tremendously.

    Also, what is your take on IF(intermediate fasting)? I’ve read some studies saying your body does not lose any protein in a 24 hour period allowing it to melt body fat.

    Maybe you could give some extra insight regarding HIIT & IF as you research.

    Love the options in the vegetable area. I’m trying to stay away from meats nowadays with the loaded GMO’s and processed foods.

    I could go on and on about this topic so I’ll end it here.

    Thanks for the awesome article,
    ~Kevin

    1. Thanks Kevin itermediate fasting is great. I have also heard of HIIT trianing as well. I however never tried it personally I’ll look into it definitely though.

  3. Good article. There are so many options out there for diets and weight loss. Your article is great in the sense it breaks down what you should be doing, what you shouldn’t be doing, and then how to work it into daily life. I, furthermore, like the fact you included exercise in your post. Too many sites offer guidelines for food, but seem to leave out the importance of exercise.

    1. Thanks Calvin, I appreciate it. I try to give all the how to’s fully in each post. I believe that It’s not good giving someone $5 dollars worth of in when you can give them $20.

  4. Pretty simple weight loss tips, I love it. I hate the complex diet that leaves me scratching my head, wondering if I am doing it right or not.
    Do you recommend counting calories? Do you know of a good calorie app? Or should I just concentrate on eliminating more carbs from my diet? Thanks for the helpful tips.

    1. If you choose to you can. Would I suggest it no. Because your mirror and weight scale will tell you if you are doing it right or not. I would suggest you focus on what you are consuming and how much off it you are consuming. All thee rest Lil fall into place. But if you choose to o it that way that’s fine to.

  5. I’ve been to your website a couple times before, and I keep finding more good stuff here. And I agree with all your good advice. Eating protein and low carb veg’s is excellent advice. And the weight lifting will sure burn the calories if you put effort into it. Keep up the good work, and I will keep visiting. Thanks, Jim.

  6. Most fitness and health sites I have read would simply have stopped at “every meal should have protein, a fat source along with low carb veggies”, but it is refreshing to see your site is not like most fitness sites. You went ahead and listed some protein sources, fats and low carb veggies. That’s literally a checklist for someone that wants to eat a healthy meal.

    I’m bookmarking this and coming back to it for sure! Great work man!

  7. Great post. I agree that if you would like to lose weight you should avoid not only sugar and sweeteners but also grains. Definitely, load yourself with a lot of green veggies. They will provide you not only with tons of vitamins but with energy.
    Exercising is very important. Though it does not necessarily mean that you have to go 4 times a week. Going to the gym twice a week will also boost your body if you will do full body exercises on each of those days and not focusing to train only certain part of your body.
    I heard that after the gym it is beneficial also to eat some light protein. Do you know anything about that?
