3 Super Easy Tips To Speed Up Weight Loss and Say Bye Belly Fat!



My new favorite magazine, “For Women First”, is always such a wealth of helpful and simple ways to do so many things and this latest bit of information on how to rev up your weight loss is no exception. I suppose that the two mini Snickers bars and diet Pepsi I just engulfed (yes before 7:00 a.m.) are going to have to go. Usually I am good and have fruit and green tea but remember that I am a wannabe health nut and we all have those days where the beloved chocolate and diet Pepsi vices are a must-we are all human after all. Hopefully these 3 little tips can help you out!

Eggs, eggs, and More Eggs For Breakfast –Women who eat two eggs each morning shed 65 percent more weight (and 83 percent more belly fat) than those who have a bagel of equal calories, according to a recent study. Eggs are chocked full of protein and stabilize blood sugar while increasing your metabolism by 25 percent for two hours and curb appetite to cut daily calorie intake. I despise eggs but have found if I cover them in hot sauce and cheese I can do it. I wonder if this counts? I think it should since it is all protein, right?

Vegetables At Every Meal-According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, adding veggies to every meal helps women to lose 25 percent more weight than reducing fat in their diet. Veggies have low calorie density so you eat more food but consume less calories and are still left feeling full and happy!

Psyllium Powder
-Okay so the name does not bring to mind an enticing treat in the least but the people at Yale University research say that by increasing your fiber intake by 5 grams a day (equivalent of ½ tbs of psyllium husk powder mixed into a glass of water or juice) can melt 13 pounds of belly fat yearly. This is apparently double what women lose when counting calories. Fiber has the ability to slow carb absorption and balance blood sugar. If you have a better source of fiber as some fruits and vegetables you could add more of those to your diet as well.

I've never loved eggs very much, but lately I've been eating more due to the protein they provide.

And I'm typing this as I just finished a candy bar...LOL. But as you said, we all have those days when the chocolate is needed. Thanks for the great tips always :)

Why do you dislike eggs? I love them! Oh yeah, I forgot you are a vegetarian!

Vegetables contain fibre so that helps, I guess.

Psyllium powder? Yeah, not very enticing! haha! But if it helps to lose weight, why not?

The more weight you lose, the more you can indulge in your chocolates and Diet Pepsi and Snickers, no? LOL!
I just add a little ketchup to my scrambled eggs to perk them up a bit. I have to go buy some more!

Heidi:

Very interesting post. I had never heard that about Psyllium Powder. Must give it a try. The egg thing is a little controversial--I never trust the egg industry to fund an objective study and report after they took that big hit several years ago. But I try to keep an open mind.

Happy trails.

Thank you for the info. I guess I should add more eggs to my diet. And veggies too!

Hello Heidi,

This is definitely good news for me. I love boiled eggs...and to be able to have 2 a day? Sounds wonderful, indeed.

Thanks for the info.

Thanks also for visiting my novel site.

I love eggs, but I love fried eggs with bread, which I guess is no use at all. but if you do not eat your eggs with bread, then what do you eat it with?
Thanks for stopping by my blog, always value your input.
Colin.

Good to know about the eggs and I would never have thought of that powder stuff but it makes sense. Thanks Heidi!
James Anderson said...
Thanks for sharing your thought..Your diet is the most of it. I would also cut sugar and carbs definitely. Lots of water and stay active everyday. Weight is easy to put on and hard to lose. Just eat better, and less.

Psyllium powder? Isn't that one of the main ingredients of Metamusil and similar products?

Wish I had tried these tips two weeks ago, maybe then I wouldn't need Spanx under my Catwoman costume.

Happy Halloween! Not sure if you were getting dressed up this year, but if you did...don't forget to enter the Supericial Gallery (Ghoulery) Costume Contest!
I like eggs...would eat them anytime of the day!

Cheers
