Think of each almond as a natural weight-loss pill. A study of overweight and obese adults found that, combined with a calorie-restricted diet, consuming a little more than a quarter cup of the nuts can decrease weight more effectively than a snack comprised of complex carbohydrates and safflower oil—after just two weeks! (And after 24 weeks, those who ate the nuts experienced a 62% greater reduction in weight and BMI!) For optimal results, eat your daily serving before you hit the gym. A study printed in The Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition found that almonds, rich in the amino acid L-arginine, can actually help you burn more fat and carbs during workouts.

Very Nice info, I am trying to lose some weight since few years but never succeed. My approch was wrong, i was targeting Workouts but didnt work on Diet. Will follow your diet and hope will also lose some weight just from Diet.

While it is a myth that celery is a minus-calorie food (that it takes more calories to digest it than it does to eat it) it is still a detoxing stem that can reduce water retention and help to purge your body of toxins.
“Salsa is low in calories and tastes great on all kinds of healthy foods (vegetables, salads, poultry, and fish). It has antioxidants, such as lycopene, which aid in cellular health. Use salsa in place of other high-calorie dips such as hummus, onion dips, and cheese dips and you’re guaranteed to cut calories,” says Ellis. Make your own at home with this easy recipe for roasted corn salsa.
There is a better way: Swap the all-or-nothing approach for one or two healthy switch-ups in your daily routine. “Doing this can lead to more weight loss than you ever imagined,” says Marissa Lippert, RD, author of The Cheater’s Diet.
Crunchy and salty, while being slightly addictive, this chip recipe can curb you off the store-bought stuff and greasy French fries while exploring the various veggies and seasonings that make the perfect chip. Besides the savory seasoning, the crispy zucchini rounds have a secret whole-grain weapon: amaranth in the breading. It makes them amazingly crunchy without overpowering the vegetable. Light, crisp, and just as good as their junk-food counterparts, these zucchini chips are a revelation.
My question is about Fat and Carbs. Currently, I’m eating (no whey shakes) all of my protein (about 170g/day). This causes my Fat grams to be suuuper high, but I can easily avoid carbs. So, is it okay–or what are the repercussions more accurately–of eating your required protein, hitting your target calories, but having higher fat grams and lower carb grams than a “stanard” diet plan?
Fill up on fiber. You can get that from vegetables, whole grains, fruits — any plant food will have fiber. Some have more than others. Top sources include artichokes, green peas, broccoli, lentils, and lima beans. Among fruits, raspberries lead the list.
Put into a soup pot 1 can of no-salt-added red beans (drained), 4 cups low-sodium vegetable juice like Knudsen’s Very Veggie Low-Sodium Juice, 2 to 3 teaspoons oregano or Italian-style seasoning, and 2 cups of any veggies you already have sitting in the refrigerator bin, such as carrots, celery, and onions. Rough-chop the vegetables into bite-size pieces and bring to a boil, simmering until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. If desired, top with a tablespoon of fat-free sour cream.

Start by cutting back on ultra-processed foods, bubbly drinks, gum, and sugary beverages. While no single food can “spot train” belly fat, some smart swaps can ease bloating, improve gut health (eliminating cramps and gas!), and help you feel less puffy. Fill up on these foods instead…
Notes: Bake the mahi-mahi at 400°F (200°C) until firm to the touch, 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the thickness. Chop and steam the carrots and broccoli until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes for the carrots, 3 minutes for the broccoli. Drizzle everything with the teriyaki sauce and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
Preheat oven to 400°. Slice 1 small potato into fry shapes; toss with 1 teaspoon olive oil and 1 teaspoon chili powder. Roast on baking sheet until golden (about 30 minutes). Grill 1 (3-ounce) sirloin steak until desired degree of doneness; slice into thin strips. Fill 6 Romaine lettuce leaves with steak. Top with 1/2 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper; drizzle with 1 tablespoon balsamic vinaigrette.

BUT-I really liked the 2nd article. I have bought into the “getting older BS” due to having a low thyroid, hormones going whacky, etc. But that doesn’t mean I have to be weak and and inactive forever, nor is it too late to begin. I love these 2 lines:
“There are many foods that aid weight loss, but one that I often recommend to my clients and eat myself is grapefruit. Researchers at Scripps Clinic in San Diego found that when obese people ate half a grapefruit before each meal, they dropped an average of 3.5 pounds over 12 weeks. Apparently, the tangy fruit can lower insulin, a fat-storage hormone, and that can lead to weight loss. Plus, since it’s at least 90% water, it can fill you up so you eat less. However, if you are on certain medications you should not have grapefruit or grapefruit juice, so check the label on all your prescriptions, or ask your pharmacist or doctor. — Patricia Bannan, MS, RDN, author of Eat Right When Time is Tight.
Can I eat less than the recommended amount? Yes, only if you feel satisfied with less food. Do not starve yourself. It will add an unwanted stress to your mind and when people get stressed they adopt bad eating habits, like more frequent meals and large portion sizes (1).
Intermittent Fasting also increases blood flow to your abdominal region making it easier for your fat burning hormones (like adrenaline) to get into your abdominal region to burn a lot more belly fat than normal diets.
Anecdotal evidence isn’t really practical. Most likely they weren’t eating 3000 calories a day but closer to their TDEE. Also low carb for a few days will cause some water and glycogen loss so in the short term it can make it seem like a great strategy. This will go into the details and explain the factors in play. https://legionathletics.com/low-carb-diet/

Acai berries are well known for their anti-oxidant properties, but did you know they’re are also rich in essential fatty acids and dietary fibre? The tiny purple fruits can help to speed up digestion and provide more energy – something we all need if we want any hope of hitting the gym after work. Add them to your porridge in the morning or whip up a smoothie bowl for a nutritious snack. Delish!
“Before I got in shape, a friend convinced me to take photos of myself wearing nothing but a sports bra and underwear. Anytime I fall off the wagon I look at those pics—that’s all the motivation I need!”
First of all. Love all your articles; as a guy who has been lifting on and off since age 16 (am 29 now) your “7 years of lifting got me this” picture and the “I changed my reps/volume and here I am 2.5 years later” picture spoke directly to me. That “7 years got me this” picture is me and every non-pro-athlete friend I’ve had (down to the workouts/reps/sets); so the following rep/volume advice was magical for me. Coupled with your cited sources/studies…it was motivational to read a non-bro-science article with the personal pics included; I’m looking forward now to never having an “off” period again.

I luv and appreciate your website. It really made a difference in my psychological barriers to overcoming my weight issues. I have tried different macro calculators and come up with different ratios; therefore I’m confused about my daily calorie/macro intake. I’m a 45 year old female, weighed 190 seven weeks ago prior to beginning weight lifting and now am at 194lbs! I workout weight/cardio combo about 3 hours/wk (should I increase that?) and body fat is approx 30-32%. According to your instructions (if I did the calculations right) my daily intake should be as follows: 1532k; 135g protein; 39g fat; 158g carbs. Is this ratio correct? My beginning goal is to lose about 25lbs and not even sure what my body fat percentage range should be!?! Also how does low thyroid function play into flexible dieting – are the results still achievable?
8. Cooking Liquids: Dieters have discovered that wine adds wonderful, low-calorie flavor to soups, stews, casseroles, and finishing sauces. Beef, fish, vegetable or chicken stocks come in fat-free varieties and add lots of flavor with very few calories. A secret ingredient to add sweetness to dishes is apple, orange,or pineapple juice concentrate.
Go back to basics. Go through your meal planners and food logs to see what does not match up. Look for possible processed foods or artificial sweeteners in new foods you’ve added to your diet recently. If you’ve stopped logging or planning your meals, take this opportunity to start again. Most often just that one step will pull you out of a plateau.
