One of the fastest ways and in my opinion healthiest ways to lose weight is to limit processed carbohydrates. I lean toward low-carb, high-fat paleo diets. Limiting carbs has been the easiest way to maintain weight-loss in my experience. Here is a sample menu to get you started:
1 Cup Cottage Cheese with 1/2 Cup Peaches mixed in
1 Apple, small handful of Kale, water and ice blended into a juice
2 Cups at least of Spinach or Romaine Lettuce with 1/2 Cup Grape Tomatoes, 3oz Organic Turkey Breast served with Annie’s Organic Lite Mustard Vinaigrette Dressing.
1 Cup Whole Milk or Half and Half and 1/2 a banana Smoothie
3oz of Meat: Beef, Chicken, Fish, etc. Get Organic and Grass-fed/free range where possible.
1 Cup Green Vegetable such as asparagus, broccoli, or brussels sprouts
1 Tablespoon of butter on veggie
1/2 cup carrots
1 Tablespoon Butter on an Organic Graham Cracker
This roughly equals 1400 calories. I hope this helps you get started. The great thing about this diet is you don’t get hungry or famished as on other diets because the extra fat keeps you satisfied!
