It’s that time of year again when many of us regret past diet decisions as we realize our jeans are too tight. Look your best, and get ready to slip into your skinny jeans with these tips to help you shape up quickly:
Eat protein at every meal.
Eating enough protein will help you stay satisfied and resist the temptation to snack excessively between meals. If you want to lose weight, aim to eat approximately 0.7 grams of protein for each pound of your body weight. Just multiply your body weight, in pounds, by 0.7 to determine the number of protein grams to eat each day. Protein also helps boost your metabolism, since it takes more calories to metabolize compared to fat and carbohydrates. Some high-quality protein sources include: lean beef, chicken breast, fish, lentils, beans and Greek yogurt.
