There's no shortcuts to weight loss, some people lose weight just by taking the stairs everyday and some change their entire lifestyle, but at the end of the day if you can create a calorie deficit on a daily basis, simply put it if your activity outweigh what you consume, lets not go in depth on how different food secretes different type of hormones that increase fat burning blah blah blah.
This 3 tips can be practice year round that have work for me in keeping a healthy weight and maintaining my muscle mass ( this my friend is very important) once you start lifting weight your body becomes a furnace, it burns more fats throughout the day even when your not doing anything, your muscles are helping you burn your fats.
Drink when your thirsty, drink a gallon a day, whatever work for you just make sure you drink up, it keep you full, helps you with your digestion and your body is mainly made up of water.
keep a food log
Every month i would do a food log sheet and save it on my desktop and at night before i sleep i would type every single thing that went in my mouth, some days i would notice that i have eaten more than required some days i could do with more food, therefore writing it down and seeing exactly what i eat help with making tomorrow better and being more cautious with what i am allergic too.
pack snacks with you (photo credit)
I am never hungry because i travel with snacks every where i go! i have a protein bar and a bag of nuts , if i have a little more time i would pack some eggs with me! but the idea of having a snack is never keeping your body from starvation because you would eat way more during your next meal to fill the void, never deprive yourself from food, listen to your body if its hungry, feed it even if its 10pm i would eat nuts, yes its calories but i care for my well being and i never want to be HANGRY(angry because i am hungry)
