Here’s what worked for five people who lost weight and kept it off

 Tip #1:  Go slow and steady

“I’ve been overweight my entire life. I’d try different diets, lose a few pounds and then gain it back. When I turned 25, I was 485 lb. and I knew I was fighting for my life. I want to have kids one day and be more active with my husband. I wanted to stop sitting on the sidelines of my own life. At the beginning of 2016, I started tracking my calories, working out and making healthier versions of the foods I loved. Ultimately, I fell in love with taking care of myself. My advice is to focus on each day, not how far you have to go. Weight loss is a journey, not a sprint.”

Lexi Reed, age 26, lost 278 lb. in 16 months.

 Tip #2:  Keep a journal

“Don’t just write down everything you eat. Write down how you feel that day, what is going on in your life and how you feel after eating. After a while, look through your journal for patterns. Chances are you’ll find some. I’m a recovering food addict, and nothing was more freeing than realizing what behaviors or events were triggering my addiction. It wasn’t that I had no willpower; my brain was reacting to certain habits that made it hard for my willpower to do its job. Once I removed those patterns—like keeping cookies around the house—my willpower muscle could finally flex.”

Erika Nicole Kendall, 33, lost 170 lb. over two years.

 Tip #3:  Give yourself a break

“You don’t have to eat salad all the time to lose weight. There are so many ways to tweak ingredients and make food you actually love to eat—even pancakes. (Try almond flour.) That being said, the type of food you eat also defines your lifestyle. You can eat junk food and lose weight, but you will probably be hungry all the time. So give yourself an occasional cheat day or reward for sticking to your plan. In the end, you want to lose weight in a healthy way, without feeling like you’re hurting yourself.”

Nivedith Renga, age 26, lost 65 lb. in nine months.

 Tip #4:  Find something that sticks

“When I graduated college in 2012, I was at my highest weight ever. I was embarrassed about my weight and what I looked like, and I was terrified of being the person in the gym who didn’t know what they were doing. I sat in my doctor’s office and remember deciding that I was going to do whatever it took, however long it took, to change my life. I tried a variety of different diets that worked, but I felt like I was losing my mind not being able to eat certain foods, and I hated that even though I was ‘losing weight’, I still had a really disordered relationship with food. Food is supposed to bring joy and happiness.
I decided to give ‘macro counting’ a whirl. It’s similar to calorie counting, but rather than keeping track of your calories, you keep track of the number of grams of protein, fat, and carbs you eat per day. Following this is what ended up giving me the biggest change overall. I felt like I wasn’t starving myself or depriving myself to lose weight. You have to find something you can stick to. What works for one person may not work for another. Whatever you choose, it has to be for life.”

Kelly Rojek, 27, lost 50 lb. in 18 months.

 Tip #5:  Manage expectations

“You have to make slow and steady adjustments, that worked for me. I measured and weighed food to become more aware of portion size. I wrote down what I ate and ate more frequent, smaller meals throughout the day. I try to include protein in each meal to control hunger. I don’t deprive myself, and I’ve gotten rid of ‘all or nothing’ thinking. People could still look at me and consider me overweight. You have to accept you’re never going to be a willowy model, but I am at a very good weight that I can manage.”

Jody Jeans, 52, lost 75 lb. over five years.


Keto diet -

Keto is everywhere; it's the new buzzword, the new favorite among those looking to shed pounds, and the new hate victim of the food-pyramid-spouting-eat-your-whole grains mainstream medical industry. The keto diet, while it is not the magic cure-all for every single disease on the planet, does a pretty dang good job at being the potential causer of healing many horrible conditions. So let's cut through the science, separate fact from fiction, and look at the benefits of the keto diet.

    Benefit #1: Weight Loss    

Okay, so this one isn't so astounding, but it is one of the most common reasons people embark on the keto diet. So why is weight loss usually so easy on the ketogenic diet instead of other regular diets? For all of the following reasons:

  • The keto diet is composed of approximately 75% fat, 20 % protein, and 5% or less carbohydrates. The high fat content and lack of sugar means diminished cravings, lack of blood sugar swings and binges, and increased satiation. Increased satiation=eating less. Many people also have food sensitivities to grains, even gluten-free ones, so eliminating them may lead to an increased ability to absorb minerals like magnesium and potassium, which in turn means your body is more nourished and you have fewer cravings
  • Ketones. When your blood sugar is running low, your body turns to its glycogen stores for energy. Typically glycogen stores house about 2000 calories of "backup" energy for when you run out of glucose. Like the intelligent machine it is, your body depletes the glycogen stores and then turns to your own body fat for fuel.


IMPORTANT: The ketogenic diet is not a free-for-all eat however much cheese or super low-carb fat bomb treats you want diet. If you are eating way more calories than you need, you will not lose weight. So focus on keeping your diet around fatty cuts of grass-fed meat, butter, eggs, avocados, lots of green veggies and cruciferous, and be modest with the keto desserts, dairy, and sweets.

    Benefit #2: Brain Function    

A poorly functioning brain, as you may have already experienced, leads to lessened work productivity, which in turn means an unhappy boss, lack of job satisfaction, sugar cravings for energy, and depression. It's a horrible domino effect. The original ketogenic diet was formulated by Dr. Russell Wilder in the early 20th century to treat epilepsy. The success rate was phenomenal and it is still used today to treat epilepsy and other brain disorders. Research also indicates that ketones are more efficient brain fuel than glucose. (Source:

    Benefit #3: Potential Cancer Benefits    

One study showed implementing the ketogenic diet led to a dramatically increased survival time and slower tumor growth. (Source:

 There’s a better way to lose weight. These dieting tips can help you avoid diet pitfalls and achieve lasting weight-loss success.

How to lose weight and keep it off -

What’s the best diet for healthy weight loss?

Pick up any diet book and it will claim to hold all the answers to successfully losing all the weight you want—and keeping it off. Some claim the key is to eat less and exercise more, others that low fat is the only way to go, while others prescribe cutting out carbs. So, what should you believe?

The truth is there is no “one size fits all” solution to permanent healthy weight loss. What works for one person may not work for you, since our bodies respond differently to different foods, depending on genetics and other health factors. To find the method of weight loss that’s right for you will likely take time and require patience, commitment, and some experimentation with different foods and diets.

While some people respond well to counting calories or similar restrictive methods, others respond better to having more freedom in planning their weight-loss programs. Being free to simply avoid fried foods or cut back on refined carbs can set them up for success. So, don’t get too discouraged if a diet that worked for somebody else doesn’t work for you. And don’t beat yourself up if a diet proves too restrictive for you to stick with. Ultimately, a diet is only right for you if it’s one you can stick with over time.

Remember: while there’s no easy fix to losing weight, there are plenty of steps you can take to develop a healthier relationship with food, curb emotional triggers to overeating, and achieve a healthy weight.

   Four popular weight loss strategies   

1. Cut calories

If you’re looking to boost your metabolism, proper nutrition can offer up some easy solutions—outside of the gym. Integrating fat-burning foods into your diet can serve to boost thyroid function, revving up your entire system to naturally detox the body.

From avocados to lean protein, fat-burning foods are invaluable for building lean muscle mass, reducing cravings, and kick-starting weight loss. Foods that naturally have a high thermogenic effect offer up the best bang for your metabolic buck. You’ll be burning off calories even as you chew. There also exist a handful of specific nutrients and compounds that skyrocket metabolism.

Our favorite peak-performance foods for ridding the body of excess fat stores also happen to be delights in the kitchen. Establishing a routine that you look forward to each day will set you up for success. Enter our list of MVPs. Science is about to make summer ab upgrades all too easy.

It takes good fat to burn fat. The monounsaturated fats found in avocados trigger fat-burning hormones while simultaneously serving as the perfect energy boost for exercise. Avocados also contain mannoheptulose, a sugar that blunts insulin release which is a function key to fat loss.

 They’re also full of antioxidants and low-calorie, vitamin-rich fuel. According to a study published in Nutrition Journal, participants who ate just half a fresh avocado with their lunch reported a 40% decreased desire to eat for hours afterward. We knew guacamole was a life force. 

Add some to your daily diet to stabilize glucose and insulin response and stay satiated long after mealtime.

Boost your metabolism with antioxidant-rich green tea. A low-caffeine alternative to coffee that's loaded with nutrients, green tea’s benefits include increased brain function, curbed cravings, and improved mood, in addition to its natural fat-burning potential. Green tea may reduce free radicals in the body and lower the risk of cancer.

Have a few glasses each day (four cups may be enough to boost metabolism) or try it as a matcha latte. The potent green tea powder is grown in the shade, reducing photosynthesis and boosting amino acid levels in the plant. A ceremonial Asian tea, the superfood matcha packs a potent amount of catechins, powerful antioxidants that naturally detox the body.

Lean meats have a high thermogenic effect on the body. In fact, up to 30% of the calories in lean meats are burned up during digestion. Red meat provides essential proteins for building muscle and bone. It also contains immune-boosting zinc and plenty of B12. Bison meat ranks among the highest-quality meats you can consume. Rich in amino acids and CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), bison has less than half of the fat and cholesterol of beef.

Omega-3 fats improve insulin sensitivity, thus naturally trimming abdominal fat. A perfect protein, eggs contain nine essential amino acids and polyunsaturated fats that naturally decrease inflammation by suppressing the production of enzymes that erode cartilage in the body. Make sure you’re selecting cruelty-free and ethically sourced animal products. For the best eggs you’ve ever had, we highly recommend hitting up your local farmers market for the farm-fresh version every week. It’s worth the marginal extra cost. Trust us.

High in vitamins A, C, B6, and K, as well as potassium, red-hot chili peppers make a strong case for eating spicy foods. The most notable fat-burning compound found in chilis is capsaicin, which has a thermogenic effect that may cause the body to burn more calories.

Clarified butter is at the top of our list of surprising healthy foods. “Fat is very likely the most misunderstood of the macronutrients,” says nutritionist Renee Fitton. “Fats are essential to our health. While trans fats can cause serious health damage, other fats, like those found in butter, can be vital to proper nutrition.” High in butyric acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid that reduces inflammation, ghee is significantly easier to digest and contains vitamins A, D, E, and K. Ghee also contains conjugated linolenic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid that improves lean body mass when consumed daily. Adding ghee to your daily routine can boost effective weight loss. Did we mention it’s also crazy delicious?

Author and slow-carb-diet advocate Timothy Ferris swears by a dose of grapefruit preceding any big food splurge. Ferris recommends using grapefruit juice to maintain steady blood sugar levels, offsetting the insulin spike that follows consuming extra carbohydrates on a “cheat day.” High in soluble fiber, grapefruit takes the body longer to digest, enabling the fruit to serve as a mild appetite suppressant when consumed before a meal. One glass of grapefruit juice before a feast is likely to help you consume fewer calories overall.

Keeping your diet alkaline will naturally prompt the body to detox and burn fat. When you’re reaching for leafy greens, add in some raw sprouts. An excellent source of dietary fiber, sprouts are chock-full of health benefits. Rich in vitamins A, B, C, and E, they contain potent minerals such as calcium, potassium, and iron.

 Mung bean sprouts are also fat-free and a great source of vitamin B2, which helps to boost metabolism and burn fat, and fenugreek sprouts are a potent digestive aid. The high enzyme content in sprouts helps the body to effectively assimilate nutrients and aids in proper digestion.

One of the best natural anti-inflammatory foods, sweet potatoes are high in dietary fiber, with a concentrated vitamin and mineral content. These complex carbohydrates contain vitamins B6 and C along with beta-carotene, as well as manganese to fight inflammation. Some research suggests sweet potatoes may boost the hormone adiponectin, which serves to mobilize fat in the body.

 The low glycemic index carb is also wildly easy to cook and pairs with plenty of delicious recipes. 

Make sure to include these seven fat-burning foods into your regular routine. They’re full of the vitamins and minerals your body needs to help you feel your best.

The fastest way to lose weight at home -

The fastest way to lose weight at home is using a diet that involves calorie shifting. You can lose up to ten pounds quickly by following this proven method. The way the diet works is that you can eat the foods you like, and typically will eat three meals and two snacks, to keep the metabolism burning calories.

By eating foods that you already have at home, you can alternate the types of calories, such as carbohydrates, protein and vegetables, to fool the metabolism. The problem with typical diets is if you lower your calorie intake too low, the metabolism goes into “starvation” mode and holds on to the calories and burns less fuel, giving you less energy. That is why some dieters complain of feeling tired when they are on a fad diet.

By eating foods that keep the metabolism burning, not only will you have more energy, but the metabolism will naturally burn more calories, because it knows it will be getting more shortly. That is the principle behind eating regularly and snacking in between. That way the metabolism doesn’t think it has to hold onto calories, because it knows more are coming in a couple hours.

That is why this is the fastest way to lose weight quickly at home, because you eat your normal foods, you just have to follow the diet to alternate the type of calories you eat daily to keep your weight loss from “plateau-ing”.

That is the problem with many fad diets, you may lose a few pounds the first couple of days by starving yourself, but soon you will stop losing because the body has learned to adapt to the reduced calorie intake.

This comes from the body’s fat storing and fat burning hormones that are sent out depending on what the brain subconsciously is thinking. You can eat whatever you want in moderation, it is the kind of calories that determine whether the body wants to store them or burn them. The reason this is the fastest way to lose weight quickly at home is that you will be eating more fat burning foods than fat storing foods.

Because you are not depriving yourself of food, you can eat anything in moderation and not skimpy servings that leave you wanting more. Once the body is full of fat burning, lower calorie choices, the metabolism will burn the calories, because it is not in starvation mode, which releases the fat storing hormones.

In caveman days, the body evolved to avoid starvation between hunts, and stored fat to live on at a later time. The metabolism has not evolved to the fact that you can go to the grocery store instead of going weeks between hunting down food. This natural metabolism cycle can be broken by calorie shifting, to keep the body from going into starvation mode, like it tends to do on ultra, low calorie fad diets.

By following a calorie shifting plan, the fastest way to lose weight quickly at home allows you to eat the foods you like, have the energy you need and can help you lose ten pounds in a week.
