Cut These Foods Out for Quick Weight Loss Results
By Genevieve Cunningham
When we're ready to lose weight, we're ready now. It's hard to be patient in the weight loss process. For the most part, losing weight takes time. It takes dedication and consistency. It takes effort. But for anyone who needs results fast, there are things you can do to jump-start the process and help you get motivated. Interested? To get your weight loss moving quickly in the right direction, take a look at these three foods to cut out right now.
You already know you need to quit. Soda is empty calories. It counts against your daily total, but it provides zero nutritional value. It's packed with sugar and probably caffeine. It just offers nothing. And you're probably consuming way more than you realize. Many people find that they lose up to 10 pounds just by giving up soda. Add some other healthy habits and some exercise, and you'll be well on your way to goal weight.
Bread is so good. It's comforting and delicious. Unfortunately, it's also calorie dense and heavy in carbohydrates. If you want to lose weight, try cutting out bread. This slashes your total calorie intake and also slashes your carb intake. Many find that lowering their carbs is not only effective, but also works quickly to help them drop some pounds. It's a win-win all the way around.
Along with cutting out bread, it's also a good idea to cut out noodles. Pasta is another delicious food that is heavy in carbs. We love pasta dishes, but they don't love us back. Try substituting with whole wheat noodles or even with a vegetable like spaghetti squash or zucchini. This is a simple little switch that can make a big difference in your overall health.
There's no such thing as a miracle when it comes to weight loss. Your best friend in the process is time, so get comfortable and get ready for the long haul. But if you need a head start to help you feel success and motivation all at once, just cut these three foods from your diet now. You may find that these simple changes get the process rolling, make you feel better in your body, and help keep the motivation alive to reach your ultimate goals before you know it.
