1) Drink more water
Drinking a lot of water helps fill you up and keeps you feeling full for longer. In addition to that, drinking water helps flush toxins from your body and aids in the digestion process.
2) Eat more protein
Adding more protein into your diet is going to help you in two big ways. It will help by keeping you feeling full, as well as giving your muscles the nutrients they need to recover properly.
3) Eat meals slower
Eating meals slower will help you become more mindful of how much food you're actually eating. By taking it slower while eating, it will help you realize when you actually become full and will allow you to stop when you're "80% full".
4) Eat more fiber
By consuming more fiber you will actually slow down your digestion, which in turn keeps you feeling full for longer bouts of time. Only 5% of Americans actually get the recommended amounts of fiber in their diets.
These are all simple things you can do everyday to start losing weight and leaning up. But just because they are simple it doesn’t mean that these changes are easy. Anytime you adjust your lifestyle it is tough no matter how simple the shift may be.
Take it one day at a time, be consistent but give yourself grace if you fall short a day or two.
