You read a lot of articles out there that tout how easy it is to lose weight, but often times they are all talk. Nutritionist Rob Hobson is here to set the records straight and give you a no gimmicks approach to melt body fat without totally changing your lifestyle! These methods are actually easy, safe and highly effective. #1 Set Realistic Goals Don't get carried away and strive to shed, say, 30 pounds in a month. Set the bar low and you'll be pleasantly surprised if you surpass your goals with all of your hard work. Decide upon a goal of 2 pounds a week, as it corresponds with the changes you're making to your diet and fitness routine. #2 Implement These Little Changes Here are the simplest habits to change in order to see instant results such as reduced bloating, fewer cravings and more energy:
  • Cut down on bread and pasta.
  • Cut out soft drinks.
  • Eat more naturally sweet foods like smoothies with bananas, fresh berries, cocoa and no added sugar.
  • Consume more lean protein like shellfish, nuts and tofu.
  • Add an extra percentage of veggies to your dinner plate.
[bctt tweet="An expert weighs in on weight loss! "] #3 Eat More Fibre You will find that you stay full longer and have more energy when you fill up on high fibre, high protein meals. Quinoa, brown rice, beans, whole grains, dried fruit and nuts are wonderful sources of fibre. #4 Don't Skip Meals Skipping a meal will leave you famished and wanting to compensate later with a bigger lunch or dinner. Eat a good portion for each more, or try eating smaller blocks of meals throughout the day to stay constantly satisfied. The more frequently you eat, the lower your risk of having a blood sugar crash and craving junk food. weight loss #5 Snack Smart Try these guaranteed good-for-you snack ideas that keep you fuelled, full and getting enough nutrients throughout the day. Not to mention, these suggestions are quick and easy!
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Veggies and hummus
  • Dried fruits
  • Nuts such as almonds
  • Miso soup
  • Berries and yogurt
#6 Have Eggs For Breakfast Eggs have been proven to be the most effective breakfast addition, as they keep you satisfied for longer than any other common morning meal. Make an omelette with veggies or add eggs to a smoked salmon bagel. #7 Mix Things Up Boring food can lead us to crave junk food, so keep your diet rich in variety. Try experimenting with new recipes like turkey chilli, sweet potato burgers and smoothies with a plethora of new fruits and healthy flaxseed, chia seeds and protein powder. For exciting meal and snack ideas, check out the BodyRock Meal Plan! weight loss #8 Don't Avoid Fat Good-for-you fats are different from trans and saturated fats. Healthy fats can even encourage a balanced weight, so let them in and enjoy them! Think salmon, nut butters, avocados and olive oil. #9 Include High-Water Meals Meals that have a high water content are exceptionally good for you. Opt for tomatoes, soups, stews and cucumbers. This inclusion will keep toxins flushing from your system while hydrating your entire body. weight loss #10 Ditch Sugar Say goodbye to insulin spikes and totally rid your diet of processed sugars. Look for sugars hidden in foods like ketchup and bread, and remember that sugar can go by different names like sucrose. Satisfy your sweet tooth with natural fruits, raw honey and maple syrup.
