“Sweet potatoes are a great source of dietary fiber, which helps to reduce blood sugar and insulin spikes, ultimately reducing belly fat,” explains Shana Maleeff a dietitian and fitness professional in New York City. Maleeff suggests substituting a sweet potato for potato salad, potato chips, or mashed potatoes at BBQs to save hundreds of calories. (We also love this recipe for mashed roasted sweet potatoes).
Omega-3 is an integral part of cell membranes, essential for nerve function and act a launchpad for the production of hormones that regulate the blood, heart, and genetic function. And this Omega-3 is also found to be useful in weight loss. However, instead of going for certain capsules, you can include omega-3 into your diet naturally. Here’s a simple recipe for Omega-3 shake. https://truweight.in/blog/recipes/weight-loss-omega-3-shake.html. 🙂
After 8 days of time-restricted eating, I not only have kept off the pound and a half I’d lost but have dropped another two, and my belly is noticeably smaller. I’ve discovered that I sleep more soundly on a semi-empty stomach and wake up more clearheaded. The diet is the most user-friendly fast around.
11. Bars. Whether you eat them as snacks, pre-workout, or as meal replacements, these bars are the ultimate in convenience. For staying power, look for bars with fiber and protein, such as Luna, Kashi, or Fiber One bars.
It’s also possible to achieve a good high protein weight loss diet by combining a high quality commercial dog food with low-calorie home-cooked foods. This should be accomplished with the help of your veterinarian or veterinary nutritionist.
Hi Mike. You answered an email for me this afternoon linking here and I simply wanted to say thank you for taking the time to help people. At first I freaked out at the recommendation to cut my cals even more but then I realized that you also suggested lowering my protein by 50g/day which is an automatic savings of 200 cals, putting me where you wanted. You really do make it easy. I’m having trouble staying at only 45g fat/ day because the eggs, cottage cheese, and protein sources I usually go for put me over but I’ll keep working at it. So far following your advice of eating MORE carbs for the past several weeks, my body is finally letting go of more fat so that’s exciting. Anyway, thanks again and I look forward to the future using this advice!
Heat the oil in a 2-qt. saucepan over medium heat. Add the curry powder along with the bay leaf, and stir for 10 seconds. Add the onion, carrots, garlic, and salt. Cover it, and cook 10 minutes, or until the onions are glassy.
“The best thing you can do for your belly is to give up processed foods. A study in the journal Food Nutrition Research found that our bodies burn only 50 percent as many calories digesting processed foods as they do real foods. So it’s like eating twice as much, even if the calories are the same!” — Mark Langowski, celebrity trainer and author of Eat This, Not That! for Abs

Pasta with meatballs: Toss 1 c cooked whole grain pasta in garlic and 1 Tbsp olive oil and garlic. Top with 3-oz lean meat balls (made with turkey, chicken or soy) and 1 tsp grated Parmesan cheese. Serve with cucumber salad (toss 1 c mixed greens, 1 c cucumber slices, 10 halved cherry tomatoes, ¼ c chopped red onions and 2 Tbsp reduced-fat Italian dressing).
Contrary to popular belief, potatoes are a great food for helping you lose weight. It’s what we put on top of our potatoes – butter, cheese, and bacon bits – that turn them into waistline-busting foods.
“Researchers around the world say what really works is not just cutting calories but satisfying your hunger with the right kinds of foods,” says Health’s Frances Largeman-Roth, RD. In fact, women following a low-fat diet who were allowed to fill up on all the fruit and vegetables they wanted lost 23% more weight than women on a low-fat diet alone, a new study from the United Kingdom reports.
The new study stands apart from many previous weight-loss trials because it did not set extremely restrictive carbohydrate, fat or caloric limits on people and emphasized that they focus on eating whole or “real” foods — as much as they needed to avoid feeling hungry.

Most of the dieters lose their reins at the end of the day and stuff themselves at dinner. But a controlled 300 cal dinner can keep things under control. It is best to finish up dinner at 8.30 PM at night because it allows the foods to be properly digested before going to sleep and the body can have a long gap of almost 11 hours before the next meal – breakfast. Some 300 cal dinner options for the 1200 calorie Indian diet are:
With the help of Nelda Mercer, RD, a dietitian based near me in Ann Arbor, Michigan, I figured out that eating 1,500 calories a day would have me losing one to two pounds a week based on my level of activity, which consists of running and walking three days a week. Mercer and her assistant, Rebecca DeKeyser, then pored over menus to come up with a week’s worth of meals. After a lot of calculating, they gave me a plan that satisfied most of my nutritional requirements. Calcium and fiber were low, however, so Mercer suggested that I take a multivitamin.
Additionally, they really do not stress organic in that diet. For example, I’ve known people on the Paleo diet where their diets consisted of consuming conventional butter and fried bacon — if you eat that every meal, it could be considered a Paleo diet.
Yet the new study found that after one year of focusing on food quality, not calories, the two groups lost substantial amounts of weight. On average, the members of the low-carb group lost just over 13 pounds, while those in the low-fat group lost about 11.7 pounds. Both groups also saw improvements in other health markers, like reductions in their waist sizes, body fat, and blood sugar and blood pressure levels.
“When you’re anxious, your body feels like it’s under a tremendous amount of stress all the time. This is why anxiety is a powerful trigger for weight gain. Two of the most proven cures for anxiety are exercise and spending time in nature. Combine both with an outdoor run or bike ride and race away from the anxiousness. Making this habit part of your lifestyle can help you stay lean for life.” — David Zinczenko, author of the Zero Belly Cookbook
Awesome! ! Just installed but I love it!! It talks of foods that uou can actually buy at your local grocery store whether it be a Winn Dixie, Piggly Wiggly or Publix. Nothing fancy or foods you have never heard of.
Iam interested in cutting and After much reading of your articles about the particular subject i can surely say that i got majorly confused as other macros i get using the calculator and other macros when i calculate myselft.
“A cup of blackberries has only 62 calories and is packed with fiber and phytochemicals, including powerful flavonoids and anthocyanins, which help to speed stool and toxins through your digestive system,” says Maleeff. Their high water and fiber content, plus sweet taste, make them the perfect refreshing summer weight-loss food. (These blackberry yogurt cheesecake parfaits are perfect for dessert!)
1) The macronutrient formulas here differ slightly from the BLS book (e.g. for bulking you suggest .3 grams of fat per pound of body weight, but in the book you suggest .4 grams). If I’m trying to be precise, which formulas should I follow?
Did you know that, when she wants to get into shape for a shoot fast, Kate Moss eats quinoa instead of cereal for breakfast? That’s because it’s what is known as a complete grain, combining protein, fibre, B vitamins and complex carbohydrates all in one. Eating grains like quinoa will help to boost your metabolism, and burn belly fat faster, as will…
Nut lovers don’t have to stick to almonds. These tiny bites pack the same heart-healthy fatty acids that quell hunger hormones and burn belly fat. One study found that swapping healthy unsaturated ones like those found in nuts for saturated fats helped overweight people lose weight without reducing calorie intake or upping their exercise.
Pros: According to the founders, while everyone is technically fasting every day — during the hours when we’re not eating — most of us do so haphazardly, which makes it harder to reap the rewards. Fat Loss Forever offers a seven-day schedule for fasting so that the body can get used to this structured timetable and reap the most benefit from the fasting periods. (Plus, you get a full cheat day. And who doesn’t love that?)
You can eat twice as much pasta salad loaded with veggies like broccoli, carrots, and tomatoes for the same calories as a pasta salad sporting just mayonnaise. Same goes for stir-fries, omelets, and other veggie-friendly dishes. If you eat a 1:1 ratio of grains to veggies, the high-fiber veggies will help satisfy your hunger before you overeat the grains. Bonus: Fiber is highly beneficial for preventing constipation, which can make you look bloated. Find out if your diet doesn’t have enough fiber.
As far back as the 1930s, scientists have been exploring the benefits of reducing calories by skipping meals. During that time, one American scientist found that significantly reducing calories helped mice live longer, healthier lives. More recently, researches have found the same in fruit flies, roundworms and monkeys. Studies have also shown that decreasing calorie consumption by 30 to 40 percent (regardless of how it’s done) can extend life span by a third or more. Plus, there’s data to suggest that limiting food intake may reduce the risk of many common diseases. Some believe fasting may also increase the body’s responsiveness to insulin, which regulates blood sugar and helps control hunger.
The key to losing weight is to burn more calories than you eat and drink. A diet can help you to do this through portion control. There are many different types of diets. Some, like the Mediterranean diet, describe a traditional way of eating from a specific region. Others, like the DASH eating plan or a diet to lower cholesterol, were designed for people who have certain health problems. But they may also help you to lose weight. There are also fad or crash diets that severely restrict calories or the types of food you are allowed to eat. They may sound promising, but they rarely lead to permanent weight loss. They also may not provide all of the nutrients your body needs.
One more question if you have a moment: I’ve heard some bro-science that claims Whey protein (powder) cannot be entirely absorbed by the body and is therefore inferior to natural protein from chicken for example. Your guys’ stance on Whey?
On Wednesday morning, I breakfast on deep-fried French Toast Sticks from Burger King but skip the syrup and at first eat just half because I still feel bloated and full from the nearly 3,000 milligrams of sodium — double a day’s worth, according to some recommendations — I had the day before. As I make myself continue eating, I remember a statistic I dug up in preparation for this story: One-quarter of Americans eat fast food every single day. I marvel at their stamina — and the state of their arteries.
Dear Adrian, Im not sure there are words to express the level of gratitude I have for you and the lessons you’ve taught me. Everyday I learn something new about what works for my body. I’ve been battling MS for the past 20 years and have survived stage III breast cancer. With that said, my motivation to workout isn’t to lose weight. I’ve been building my endurance, so I can keep up with the basics of life. The lovely part to come out of this is my overall attitude and mood are more positive. Thank you again for doing what you do. You’re making a difference one person at a time. Your kindred spirit, Jill
As funny as it sounds, sleep deprivation may make you fat — and not just because you’re susceptible to cases of the late-night munchies (although there’s that too). There’s tons of research that demonstrates getting less than the desired amount — about 7 hours — of sleep per night can slow down your metabolism. Plus, when you’re awake for longer, you’re naturally more likely to nosh. So don’t skimp on your ZZZs, and you’ll be rewarded with an extra edge when it comes to shedding pounds quickly.
