for Rapid Weight Loss After 50
When you follow all the weight loss rules, seeing the scale drop is very fulfilling. But when the scale rises or stays the same, it's aggravating.
Include 20 to 30 grams of protein per meal
Protein helps you maintain lean muscle tissue, which burns more calories than fat and fuels your metabolism.
Start your meal with fiber-rich non-starchy veggies.
Fiber slows digestion and stabilizes blood sugar, so eating carbs at the start of the meal reduces their impact.
Make more homemade meals
Nothing beats cooking a healthy dinner from scratch. Plus, you can regulate portion sizes and know all the fresh, healthful components!
Add more produce to your day
Studies show that eating more produce and variety lowers body weight, waist circumference, and body fat.
Select wholesome, unprocessed carbs
The blood sugar increases we mentioned? You should avoid ultra-processed, refined doughy carbs like bagels, crackers, cookies, and pastries, which might cause the increase.
