Easy Weight Loss is All About Food

You can exercise as much as you like, but if you eat junk food, you’re going to struggle to ditch excess fat. You have to start thinking about what you’re eating and how you can change your eating habits.

This free 1-day meal plan will show you how easy it is to eat healthier.

Here are the changes you need to make to your food:

Stop Eating Processed Foods

Avoiding processed food is the number one easiest way to lose weight.

ultra-processed foodsProcessed foods are full of salt, sugar, and chemicals, all of which are designed to extend the life of the food and make sure you enjoy the taste.

Alongside the fact that these elements are likely to lead to weight gain, studies also show that people who eat processed foods eat more calories in general.

Start your new habits today by ditching processed foods altogether. Join FF30X today and check out an extensive array of recipes and eating ideas to make it easy to avoid processed foods.

Instead of processed foods concentrate on whole foods, such as:

  • Leafy greens
  • All vegetables
  • Fruits
  • Beans
  • Legumes
  • Nuts & seeds
  • Lean Meat

That’s the reality. Simply avoid the foods that are highly processed, and you’ll be on the right track.

Prepare in Advance

Temptation can be a killer.

meal prep for easy weight lossIf we’re being honest, it's far more appealing and easier to grab a pizza on the way home than it is to cook yourself a meal.

But if you start preparing your meals in advance, you can avoid this temptation.

Simply allow yourself a couple of hours twice a week.

During that time, prepare meat, vegetables, and anything else that you want to eat in the next few days.

Then, when you get home from a hard day at work, you simply need to select your ingredients, heat and enjoy.

Preparing your food in advance is sustainable, time-saving, and can make easy weight loss for men possible.

Get a Smaller Plate

Another technique to help with easy weight loss for men is to reduce the size of your plate.

man looking at empty plate easy weight lossWhether you’re eating at home or enjoying a buffet, it’s common to fill your plate, and then eat everything on it.

While in some cultures leaving something on your plate is considered polite, this isn’t the norm in the US.

If you put less on your plate, you’ll feel that you’re depriving yourself. But, if you shrink the plate, then you won’t even notice the difference.

In fact, you’ll still be able to fill your plate and reduce your calorie consumption, helping you to lose weight!

Adopt the Perfect Plate

Take your smaller plate and pre-prepared meals and add in an easy way to ensure you have enough nutrients without over-eating.

perfect plateThat’s what the perfect plate approach to food will help you to do.

In essence, you focus on having ½ plate vegetables, ¼ plate protein, and ¼ plate carbohydrates.

This approach makes mealtimes much simpler, and you can even eat out without worrying about how many calories are in each item on the menu.

In short, the perfect plate approach will give you the freedom to live life normally, that makes it sustainable.

Slow down

You’ve probably heard this before but it really does work.

family eating dinner easy weight lossSlow down your eating and you’re less likely to overeat because your stomach will have had the time it needs to tell your brain that you’re full.

Simply place your fork on your plate every time you take a mouthful, don’t pick it up again until you’ve finished chewing your current mouthful.

It’s a small gesture and easy to incorporate into your daily routine, but it really works.

Try it; it’s easy and sustainable, helping to make easy weight loss for men a reality.

Count Your Calories

Counting calories is easier today than it has ever been.

how to lose 10 pounds in 2 weeksTake a look at your app store, and you’ll find several apps that can help you count your calories.

Some of these apps can even tell you the calorie content just by taking a picture of the food.

However, it should be noted that calorie counting is time-consuming and not a particularly sustainable option for the long-term.

Getting an app can help you to lose weight at the start of your journey, which will make sustaining the weight loss easier.

Drink More Water for Easy Way to Lose Weight!

You absolutely need to start drinking more water if you want to lose weight.

glass of ice waterWater is essential for the transfer of energy between your cells, keeping them hydrated, flushing out toxins, and maintaining healthy brain function.

Drinking water can do a lot to benefit your health. Drinking a glass before you eat can help you to feel fuller; effectively reducing your appetite.

It’s also a good idea to drink water when you feel hungry.

It is common for thirst to be mistaken for hunger.

If you drink a glass of water and still feel hungry 30 minutes later, then you need food!

It’s not just plain water that you can drink to help keep you feeling fuller.

Black coffee, green tea, and even herbal teas can also work the same way. Just don’t give in to the urge for sugar-filled drinks.

It should be noted that just because a drink is sugar-free, doesn’t mean it’s good for you. Many of these drinks are full of artificial sweeteners, which can be just as bad for you as sugar. Water should be your primary choice, but green tea and coffee are great for adding variety.

Use Intermittent Fasting

The trick to easy weight loss for men is to adopt habits that can be maintained.

easy weight lossYou need to eat, but you can easily adapt to eating less for at least two days a week.

Intermittent fasting simply involves reducing your calorie intake on specific days. The best approach is to limit your calorie intake on two days a week, albeit, not consecutive days.

You don’t need to eliminate food altogether, simply limit your caloric intake to 500.

Assuming you’re eating healthily and not consuming more calories than you need for the rest of the week, the calorie reduction on two days will help you to lose weight.

The trick to successfully practicing intermittent fasting is to eat a light breakfast, two snacks, and a light dinner.

You can, with a little planning, do this for less than 500 calories but you won’t feel like you’re being deprived.

Sleeping is the EASIEST Weight Loss Strategy!

Now you finally have a good reason to stay in bed for that extra 30 minutes, despite what everyone else is saying.

man sleepingResearch shows that not getting enough sleep makes it more difficult to control your appetite and encourages weight gain.

When you sleep, your body has the opportunity to repair its cells and balance your hormone levels.

This is an important part of your easy weight loss for men strategy. Sleep reduces the level of cortisol (the stress hormone), in your body.

When cortisol is being produced, your body is unable to regulate the production of leptin and ghrelin, the appetite and fullness hormone.

When these are properly regulated, you’re less likely to feel hungry during the day, and that has to help your long term weight loss goals.

From now on, you’ve got a good reason to sleep between 6-8 hours a night!

Intensity Equals Efficacy 

What you eat is the most important aspect of weight loss, whether you’re looking to lose weight fast, slowly, or even maintain your existing weight loss.

man doing dipsBut you shouldn’t underestimate the power of exercise.

When you exercise, you burn more calories, and this can help you to lose more weight or simply maintain your weight.

Exercise is also a good way of boosting your overall health and helping to reduce your risk of age-related diseases.

If you’re wondering what exercises you should be doing, then the easy answer is any!

Just 30 minutes of exercise between 3-5 times a week will help you to lose weight and improve your health.

How's that for easy weight loss?

man doing intense exerciseSimply choose exercises that you enjoy doing. This will help you to stick to them, even when you don’t feel like doing them.

The trick is to adopt a high-intensity approach with regards to exercising. This doesn’t mean pushing yourself to exhaustion and potentially injuring yourself.

High-intensity workouts burn more calories and allow you to work out for less time with the same results as much longer workouts.

Example High-Intensity Exercises

There are many different types of exercises that can be classified as high intensity. Try including some of these into your schedule.

hiit exercise for easy weight loss

Any exercise can be done at high intensity; you simply need to get your heart rate at between 80-90% of your maximum heart rate.

Your maximum heart rate is 220 less your age.

For example, if you’re 44, your maximum heart rate will be 176, 80% of 176 is 140 beats per minute, while 90% is 158.

To maximize your weight loss and the effectiveness of high-intensity exercise, your heart rate should stay within 140-158 beats per minute.

You can use a heart rate monitor to ascertain this, but the talk test is also effective. If you’re working out at high intensity, you should be breathless and only able to talk for a few words at a time.
