I have to comment here. I workout 5-7 days a week – HIIT, yoga, weight lifting, downhill & cross country skiing – and it doesn’t matter how much I if I don’t watch my diet, I gain weight. It really is 80% diet. I have great muscle tone when I weigh 125-130, but when I gain 10-15 pounds almost every winter, the muscle tone is hidden by fat, even when I’m still working out every day.
Go for Mix and Match Diet! Add two glasses of milk (once in the morning and once in the evening) to your vegetables-rich diet. For snacks, you may have a platter of steel-cut oats, pearled barley, long-grain brown rice, whole wheat bread, etc.
Water is considered a natural weight loss drink. It takes up room in your stomach, preventing you from overeating. Drink a glass of water before every meal or take sips in between to control overeating. Drinking 2 liters of water daily boosts the metabolism, speeding up the weight loss process. It also flushes out the toxins from the body, accelerating weight loss. Keep a bottle of water handy and take a sip every 12 minutes. This will reduce your craving for sugary beverages. Water also helps the body to absorb nutrients, keeping you energized.

Gaming used to conjure up teen boys sitting on the sofa for hours on end. But today’s “exergames” are helping males and females of all ages torch serious calories. Researchers from Brigham Young University found that middle school students who played active video games that required the most movement, like Wii boxing or Playstation’s Dance Dance Revolution, got enough exercise to meet physical activity requirements (60 minutes per day for children and 150 minutes per week for adults). Their study, published in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, examined the energy expenditure of 39 children with various body types and found that kids burn 4 to 6.7 calories per minute playing active video games, compared with the 4.4 calories per minute they would burn by walking on the treadmill at 3 mph.

Want to lose weight without going hungry? Wild salmon is a must-have.

The smoothie ingredients — grapefruit, beetroot, kale, spinach, coconut oil and sunflower seeds — stimulate enzymes in the blood that break down fat by stimulating bile production in the gallbladder and liver.
Plain and simple: We just don’t feel full by liquid calories in quite the same way as we do real food. Drinking a juice or caramel coffee drink, for instance, won’t make you feel full the way eating a bowl of veggie- and protein-packed stir-fry will. So monitor your intake of juice, soda, sweetened coffee and tea, and alcoholic beverages. If you consume each of those beverages during the day, you’ll have taken in at least 800 extra calories by nighttime — and you’ll still be hungry. (Incidentally, alcohol may suppress the metabolism of fat, making it tougher for you to burn those calories.) Some other ways to skip sugar? Check ’em out here.
Obesity hinders the production of testosterone, and lower testosterone makes it easier to store more fat. Low testosterone is also associated with insulin resistance, which in turn means carb intake will more likely be stored as fat. Basically, it’s a vicious cycle  that has the potential to never end.

Level of difficulty: This diet is highly restrictive and requires cooking your own food most of the time, but its popularity has spawned hundreds of food blogs and cookbooks so there is no shortage of recipes.
Bottom line: The 30-day timeframe makes drastic eating changes (many that we know we all need to do) seem doable, and meal plans typically provide adequate energy. I’ve done a few “rounds” of Whole30 or similar plans, and while I regress to many of my old eating habits, I do seem to incorporate one or two healthy takeaways each time I do it.

Because fiber is not able to be digested once consumed, plus it absorbs so much of its own weight in water, these foods help slow your body’s digestion of glucose (sugar), keep you feeling full and beat cravings. Many foods high in fiber are also very nutritionally dense, meaning you get more bang for your nutritional buck.
