Dr. Lindsey Duncan, a nutritionist who’s worked with Tony Dorsett and Reggie Bush, is a big fan of pumpkin seeds. “A handful of raw pepitas or dry roasted pumpkin seeds can give you a natural jolt to power through a workout,” he says. “They’re a good source of protein, healthy fats, and fiber, keeping you feeling full and energized longer, and contain manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc, which provide additional energy support to maximize gym time.” Throw them into salads and rice dishes or eat them raw.

Like vegetables, fruits are fabulous weight-loss foods because they’re “big” foods, that is, foods that are bulked up by lots of fiber and water. With “big” foods, you’ll be eating a lot of food (which will satisfy your hunger) but not a lot of calories.
Eggs might just be the easiest, cheapest and most versatile way to up your protein intake. Beyond easily upping your daily protein count, each 85-calorie eggs packs a solid 7 grams of the muscle-builder! Eggs also boost your health: They’re loaded with amino acids, antioxidants, and iron. Don’t just reach for the whites, though; the yolks boast a fat-fighting nutrient called choline, so opting for whole eggs can actually help you trim down. When you’re shopping for eggs, pay attention to the labels. You should be buying organic, when possible. These are certified by the USDA and are free from antibiotics, vaccines, and hormones. As for color, that’s your call. The difference in color just varies based on the type of chicken—they both have the same nutritional value, says Molly Morgan, RD, a board certified sports specialist dietician based in upstate New York.
So while one lobbying board may tout the better-for-you benefits of blueberries, and another may up the antioxidant power of pomegranate, in the overall scheme of things it doesn’t matter so much which fruits and vegetables you eat “it just matters that you get them inside you,” Grotto tells WebMD.
With only 500 calories to consume, I chew slowly, which is more pleasurable, I discover, than snarfing. While the expected rumbles from my coddled stomach, which has never known hunger, are uncomfortable, they aren’t so excruciating that I cave in and order a pizza. The protein is satisfying, and the Sriracha-dipped veggies do an admirable job of taking the edge off. A study several years ago found that adding hot red pepper to tomato soup caused people to eat 60 fewer calories at the next meal—probably, the researchers speculated, because the spice acts as a mild appetite suppressant. (Here are 25 delicious things you can do with Sriracha.)
The Mayo Clinic Diet provides practical and realistic ideas for including more physical activity and exercise throughout your day — as well as finding a plan that works for you. The diet recommends getting at least 30 minutes of exercise every day and even more exercise for further health benefits and weight loss. The diet also emphasizes moving more throughout the day, such as taking the stairs instead of an elevator.
Vegetables have all the nutrients you need to sustain your body. Potatoes have carbohydrates, peas have protein, and carrots and beans are full of fiber and essential vitamins (2). After the relatively low carb day, this will replenish your carb stores and will energize you for the next day of the diet.
You’ve heard of a self-fulfilling prophecy? If you keep focusing on things you can’t do, like resisting junk food or getting out the door for a daily walk, chances are you won’t do them. Instead (whether you believe it or not) repeat positive thoughts to yourself. “I can lose weight.” “I will get out for my walk today.” “I know I can resist the pastry cart after dinner.” Repeat these phrases and before too long, they will become true for you. Try these other daily mantras that can help you reach your goals.
The plan focuses on limiting your weekly diet to eating fruits, vegetables, brown rice, and chicken. The diet focuses on consuming a combination of complex carbohydrates, low-calorie vegetables, and fruits, and increasing water intake to help achieve a weight loss of up to 17 pounds in just seven days.

I’m more prepared for it, but I still feel an odd disappointment at my disinterest in pastries and bacon that mere hours ago sounded irresistible. I’m seeing how little of my usual eating is driven by actual need. As I make my way through another day of alarmingly sensible meals and snacks, it occurs to me that I’m learning the difference between true hunger and boredom-stress-anxiety hunger—and how frequently I engage in the latter.
Don’t mistake this section as me railing against eating healthy foods. I’m not a fan of the people trying to prove that you can “eat junk and get shredded”–long-term health matters more than getting super lean while eating boxes of Pop Tarts every week.
