This article will show you 4 simple steps to lose 20 lbs in 6 weeks without doing anything crazy like cutting carbs or starving yourself.
Step #1 Eat 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight.
Out of the three macronutrients (Fat, Carbs, & Protein), protein is the most satiating meaning it makes you feel the most full.
By eating 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight, you'll feel very full and eat fewer calories as a result.
Step #2 Eat foods with a low caloric density.
Caloric density refers to the number of calories in a food compared to the weight of the food.
Multiple studies have shown that the weight of food/drink, not the amount of calories in it, ultimately contributes to a feeling of fullness.
That's why drinking plenty of water can help you eat fewer calories.
To keep this email brief, we won't attempt to list the caloric density of every food but an internet search will pull up all you need to know.
Step #3 Stay within a calorie limit.
We know this isn't anything new but it matters and, if you do steps 1 & 2 this should be easy.
To find out how many calories you should eat, Google "calorie calculator" and choose one, there are millions.
It's common for people to underestimate how many calories they're actually eating and as a result, they feel frustrated when they don't see the results they're after.
Pay attention to the nutrition label and consider using a simple kitchen scale to weigh your food so you know exactly how many calories you're consuming. It's actually really easy and simple.
Step #4 Don't deprive yourself of foods you love!
As long as you stay within a calorie limit, you can eat dessert or whatever it is you crave & still lose weight.
We believe that doing anything short-term is a waste of time when you could be creating habits that will serve you for the rest of your life so choose the sustainable way.
Follow the steps above, and you can lose 20 lbs in 6 weeks and create a healthy habit that will serve you for much longer!
