1. Drink Water

It has been proven over and over again that drinking water helps you to lose weight. It is the most important aspect of any diet that you decide to use. First, water is a great way to help your body feel full, so if you are having cravings then drink some water it will help keep your appetite in check. Second, it is the single best way to flush toxins out of your system. It will help in aid of cleaning out the toxins that are in foods and air we breathe out of your system. This makes you feel more energetic and clean.

Water also benefits your metabolism. It helps your body function by allowing your internal organs to process the stored fat that has built up in your system. With a sped up metabolism then you are going to use those options to help you remove the unwanted fat from your system.

2. Eat Breakfast

Breakfast they say is the most important meal of the day. This is very true when it comes to dieting. Since, your metabolism is most active in the morning hours eating a small, healthy breakfast will help you burn fat throughout the day. Skipping breakfast while you are dieting is going to make you more fatigued in the mornings and sluggish throughout the day. When that happens you will most likely need to eat more because your body will require you to give it the energy it needs. At, the very least try and have a liquid breakfast shake it will help fuel your body for the morning ahead.

Fiber helps you feel fuller without more food resulting in you not eating other foods to fill the void. High fiber is also able to help you cut your calories that you intake. Fiber will attach itself to the fat molecules in your body and help you break them down.

Fiber is also great for the digestive system. With a new diet, it may be taking a small toll on your body for it to operate effectively. This can cause irregular bowel movements that can be come uncomfortable. Eating more fiber in your diet will actually help you become a little bit more relaxed as you gentle ease your body into a more efficient and healthy routine.

4. Eat Healthy Fats

Yes! Believe it or not there is such a thing as healthy fats. The body needs a certain kind of fat that will keep it functioning properly. Fat is a natural part of our nutrient chain, so some fat is healthy. Fat is used for many regulating prospects in the blood like blood pressure, blood clotting, and joint arthritis relief.

So, when you are shopping for healthy alternatives think about things that will give you naturally healthy fat content. Fish like salmon, nuts, and even olive oil can provide these nutrients that your body needs.

5. Lean Protein

Another thing that your body needs but will still allow you to lose weight is protein. Protein is vital to the healthy function of your body and is a great way to keep full. It is essential for the fat burning in your system and to help you build muscle mass. At least one fourth of your diet should contain protein on a weekly basis.

    Not drinking water is a better way to lose weight. I sipped a half of cup of water over a 24 hour period and lost 2.4 lbs. Hospitals often put patients on restricted liquid intake control. I know someone who lost 60 lbs. in 2 weeks by being limited to 14-oz of liquid intake daily. David Russell
