Oolong Tea in Mornings
Oolong tea speeds up your metabolism - leads to weight loss, lowers cholesterol, improves digestion, and helps stabilize blood sugar. It also increases concentration, making it a great choice to start your morning with. You can have 2 cups of oolong tea a day, so you can enjoy this delicious beverage first thing in the morning and repeat later in the afternoon as well.
Only 1 cup of Coffee a Day
If you prefer coffee in mornings, you don’t have to give it up on this diet. All you’ve to do is to sweeten it with nut milk and stevia, and keep it one cup.
Consume 1/2 an Avocado for Breakfast
Rich in vitamins and minerals, avocados are extremely nutrient-dense. Containing monounsaturated fatty acids, the same ingredient in olive oil, avocados can maintain weight loss, reduce cholesterol level, decrease your risk of breast cancer, target stomach fat, and improve the condition of your skin and nails. While you can eat an avocado on its own, you can also enjoy it with a serving of grains per day, like a slice of Ezekiel toast or quinoa.
Have 3 Snacks per Day
The best method to fuel your metabolism and stay with curbed hunger in-between meals is by having healthy snacks throughout your day. As you pick your snacks make sure to incorporate healthy-friendly fats. Enjoy a 1/4 cup of nuts or a tablespoon of nut butter every day, unlimited non-starchy veggies with 2 tablespoons of olive oil daily, or a piece of medium-sized fruit or a 1/2 cup of berries as part of the 2 servings of fruit you should intake each day. These picks will fight your cravings for chips, since you can still crunch on something tasty and eat far less calories along the way.
Lots of Veggies for Lunch
Since non-starchy veggies are low in carbs and calories and high in vitamins and fiber, they make a helpful choice when hunger enters without knocks. Items, such as Brussels sprouts, radishes, Swiss chard, and kale register low on the glycemic index, so they won’t cause a jump in your blood sugar. For lunch, prepare a large spinach salad topped with a cup of lentils and 2 tbsp. pumpkin seeds, or one of other recipes available online on reliable sites.
Dinner without Meat
Because vegetable proteins like beans, tofu, seeds, and tempeh tend to have less fat than animal proteins; those who stick to plant-based diets tend to eat fewer calories and saturated fat in general. Going meatless can also help avoid cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity, making it an ideal decision for dieters headed to torch excess fat and keep them off for good. You should aim to get 3 servings per day of plant proteins, in sources such as a 1/4 block of tofu, 1 cup of tempeh, 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, or 1 cup of beans. For dinner, try having a burrito bowl with avocado, black beans, quinoa, any spices you prefer, and as many non-starchy greens as you like.
Track Your Animal Protein and Dairy
Poultry, fish, eggs, and red meat should be consumed no more than 2 times per week on this diet. Some more examples include milk and cheese.
What to Wholly Eliminate
Avoid processed food sources, artificial sweeteners, and added sugars. Condiments that are allowed on this diet include unlimited amounts of balsamic vinegar, low-sodium soy sauce, all spices, and sparkling water.
