Weight loss is a common song among people but many are finding it hard to lose weight. There are several methods to lose weight a lot faster, but most of them will make you hungry and unsatisfied.
If you are not determined, then hunger will make you give up on some weight loss plans quickly. In this article, the plans you will learn will:
- Help you to reduce your appetite
- Help you lose weight quickly
- Improve your metabolic health
Here is the simple 3 step plan to lose weight quick.
1. Eat Protein, Vegetables and Fat
Each one of your meals should contain a fat source, low-carb vegetables and a protein source. If you can construct your meals in this way, it will automatically bring your carb intake the range of 20-50 grams a day, which is the recommended range.
Your protein source can include the following:
- Fish and seafood – trout, lobster, salmon, shrimp, etc.
- Meat – chicken, lamb, pork, beef, bacon, etc.
- Eggs – pastured eggs or omega-3 enrich eggs are better.
Eating protein has been shown to boost metabolism by 80-100 calories per day, so its importance cannot be overstated.
In fact, high protein diets can help you reduce obsessive thoughts about food by 60 percent, makes you full that you eat 441 fewer calories per day and reduce your craving for late-night snacking… just by adding protein to your meal.
Protein is the king when it comes to losing weight!
- Swiss chard
- Brussels sprout
Don’t be afraid to eat plenty of these low-carb vegetables. Even if you eat plenty of them, you won’t go over 20-50 net carbs a day.
All the vitamins, minerals and fiber you need to be healthy can be found in meat and vegetables, so there is no physiological need for grains in the meal.
- Olive oil
- Avocado oil
- Coconut oil
Eat 2 to 3 meals a day, but if you find yourself hungry in the afternoon, you can add a 4th meal.
Don’t hesitate to eat fat, because doing both low-fat and low-carb at the same time is just a recipe for failure. In the end doing low-fat and low-carb will make you miserable and cause you to abandon the plan.
Coconut oil is the best cooking oil because it is rich in fats known as MCTs (Medium-Chain Triglycerides). These fats are more fulfilling and can help boost your metabolism.
You have no reason to fear these natural fats because new studies have shown that saturated fat doesn’t raise the risk of heart disease at all.

2. Cut back on starches and sugars
The most important part of losing weight is to cut back on starches and sugars (carbs).
These are foods that simulate insulin secretion the most. If you have not read it before, insulin is the main hormone in the body that stores fat. When insulin drops down, it becomes easier for fat to get out of the stores and the body begins to burn fats instead of carbs.
It’s not uncommon to drop up to 10 pounds or more in the first week of eating like this. So cut your carb to lower your insulin and you’ll begin to eat fewer calories automatically in fact, without hunger.
3. Lift weight three times per week
On this plan, you don’t need to exercise to lose weight, but it’s recommended. What you have to do is go to gym 3 to 4 times a week, warm up, lift weight and then stretch.
Lifting weight will help you burn a few calories and prevent your metabolism from slowing down, which is the common side effect of losing weight.
Different studies on low-carb diets have shown that you can gain a bit of muscle while losing huge amounts of body fat.
If you don’t like weight lifting, doing easier cardio workouts such as jogging, walking, swimming, running or swimming will suffice.
- Drink water a half hour before meals
- Drink tea or coffee as caffeine in them boost metabolism
- Eat mostly whole, unprocessed foods
- Eat your food slowly
- Use smaller plates
- Get a good night sleep – poor sleep can cause you to gain weight
On the above listed plans, you can eat great food until fullness and still lose a lot of fat!
