Swaps to Shed Pounds Fast

Swaps to Shed Pounds Fast

Need a weight-loss kick? No need for extremes: Simple moves can work just as quickly as big ones. You can go to spin class every day, but no amount of exercise is going to work faster than small diet changes. In fact, intense exercise may increase your appetite. I recommend eating three meals and two snacks per day that have protein, fiber and healthy fats. Start with these swaps.

Skip Fresh- Pressed Juice: It’s all-natural, but the concentrated sugar and lack of fiber makes it a treat rather than a go-to.

Choose Instead A Smoothie: This gets you protein, fiber and healthy fat. Blend 6 ounces of Greek yogurt, half an apple, one banana and seven almonds.

Skip Mashed Potatoes: They are all starch and let’s face it: You’ll probably load them with salt and butter, too.

Choose Instead Mashed Cauliflower: Blend a cup of cauliflower with a pinch of Parmesan. It is far fewer calories, and the fiber will fill you up. Pair with roasted turkey.

Skips Chips and Guacamole: You can make a healthier version by adding in edamame, but regular guacamole lacks a lot of protein.

Choose Instead All-Natural Beef Jerky and an Asian Pear: Make sure the jerky is preservative-free. The pear skin is all fiber, and the jerky is a good protein source.
