There is no doubt that there are many ways to lose weight, there’s practically a new diet every month. To add to the numerous fad diets like “Master Cleanse”, “Atkins” and “Cambridge” are thousands of dietary supplements which also promise to make you slim. So we’ve done our homework and come up with the a 3-step plan to:
— Curb your appetite, preventing over-eating
— Speed up your metabolism, and
— Accelerate your weight loss

FIRST STEP: Cut down on sugars and starchy foods
In losing weight, you have to cut down on carbohydrates like bread, rice, cassava, yam, biscuits, chin-chin, plantain chips, soft drinks, beer, cakes, puff-puff and so on . These carbs are ‘high glycemic index’ foods which means they rapidly increase your blood sugar once you eat them. In turn, if the sugars in your blood aren’t converted into energy through exercise or any activity, the sugars will be stored in your body as fat.

SECOND STEP: Eat lean protein, healthy fats and veggies:
When planning your diet, these three things are very essential.
Protein has been shown to boost metabolism burning an extra 80 to 100 calories per day. High amounts of protein also helps reduces over-eating.
Veggies are high in fiber which keeps you full longer and helps you flush out fat. Try spinach, kale, cabbage, lettuce, cucumber and broccoli.
Add healthy fats like olive or coconut oil to slightly boost your metabolism.

THIRD STEP: Exercise, combining weights and cardio 3 times a week
Warm up for thirty minutes with cardio then move to lift weights and finally end with stretching. Easy cardio workouts are jogging, swimming, cycling or fast walk.
