1 – Push Yourself (Just A Little) More
If you ride the bus, walk part of the route. If you walk, walk faster. If you run, run farther. These small tweaks will seriously raise your body’s metabolic rate, and you’ll see a few pounds drop off in a few months without changing anything else.
2 – Rethink Cheese
Americans eat, on average, around 30 pounds of cheese a year! You can slash hundreds of calories a week if you stop eating whole cheese, which is high in saturated fat and sodium, and reach for low- or no-fat varieties or tofu to get your calcium.
3 – Power Up Your Yogurt
Combine 2 tablespoons finely ground zero-sugar cereal (such as Post Shredded Wheat Cereal), 2 teaspoons chopped walnuts, 4 tablespoons whole or 2% low-fat yogurt, 1 tablespoon organic lemon juice, 1 teaspoon honey, and 1 teaspoon flaxseed oil—for five mornings in a row, plus fish, poultry, or eggs and tons of veggies for lunch and dinner. Not only will you feel better, but you will shed up to 3 to 5 pounds in a week, while giving your body necessary nutrients and boosting your energy level.
