Rapid weight loss diet secrets needed

Best foods to eat and worst to avoid

If you are looking to reduce stubborn fat at menopause, I recommend the following tips;

Add fiber to your meals

Fiber helps in reducing appetite and increasing insulin sensitivity; factors greatly contributing to weight loss. You can eat foods like avocados, sprouts, and flaxseeds, which leave you filled for longer, thus reducing the chance of overeating.

Ensure to eat proteins

Proteins help reduce muscle loss, especially during weight loss. Consuming them also increases the body’s metabolic rate, and just like fiber, proteins can keep you free from hunger for extended periods, helping reduce more calories intake. But proteins, including red meat should be eaten in moderation to prevent their negative effects.

Reduce alcohol intake

Most alcoholic drinks carry numerous calories that overwhelm the body possibly causing weight gain. Alcohol consumption can not only cause unhealthy weight gain but also increases the risk of liver damage, especially when taken in excess.

If possible, stay away from sugary products

Do you have a sweet tooth? Well, research indicates that the average American diet contains around 300 calories of added sugar. Most of it is loaded in beverages and sweet drinks like soda, flavored waters, and energy drinks.
