There is no doubt that there are many ways to lose weight, people constantly bring up different ways and steps to lose weight every day. To add to the list of weight-loss schemes, dietary supplements are now everywhere in the market, confusing us even more.
However, this 3-step plan outlined here will
1. Curb your appetite distinctively.
2. Improve your metabolism and
3. Accelerate your weight loss.
FIRST STEP: Cut down on carbs
In losing weight, you have to cut down on carbs like sugars and starches. This is because these carbs stimulates the secretion of the insulin the most. Insulin is the main fat storage hormone in the body.
When your insulin is down, fat therefore has an easier time getting out of the fat stores and therefore the body burns fats instead of carbs. Also, your kidney releases excess sodium and water from your body when your insulin is lowered therefore reducing bloat and unnecessary water weight.
When starches and sugars are removed from your diet, your insulin level would automatically lower, curbing your appetite and make you lose weight.
SECOND STEP: Eat protein, healthy fat and veggies:
When planning your diet, these three things are very essential.
Proteins are very essential to the health. Protein has been shown to boost metabolism by 80 to 100 calories per day. High amount of protein also reduces obsessive thoughts about food by 60%, it reduces the desire for late snacking by half and fills you automatically.
Also, low-carb veggies like spinach, kale, cabbage, lettuce, cucumber, broccoli, Brussels, etc. helps intensively in losing weight.

Also, healthy fats like olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, butter and tallow oil helps to slightly boost your metabolism. The best cooking fat is coconut oil. This is because it is rich in fats called Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs).
THIRD STEP: Lift weights 3 times a week
The best option is to go to the gym 3 times a week. Warm up, lift weights and stretch. When you lose weight, you will burn few calories and increase the speed of your metabolism which is a known side effect of losing weight.
You can also perform easier cardio workouts like swimming, jogging, running, walking, etc.
You can have one day of the week for carb refeeds. This is acceptable, although not necessary. Most people prefer Saturdays.
Most importantly, drink water regularly, take teas, eat fibres and choose weight loss friendly foods. Thank you.
