Quickest Way to Lose Weight
The Quickest Way to Lose Weight?
OK, so you gained back a few pounds. Maybe it was the Holidays, an especially stressful time in your life, or even a special occasion. I hate to admit it but it happened to me over the Holidays this year. Over indulging, even moderately, has left me feeling sluggish and bloated. But with the New Year here it’s time to let go of the guilt and get back on track!
So what is the quickest way to lose those unwanted pounds and inches? For me it’s focusing on the basics of healthy eating. Fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, nuts and whole grains!
When I want to drop a few pounds fast, and reset my mindset when it comes to eating, I take two weeks off from: red meat, sugar, wheat, corn, alcohol, starch and cheese.
It’s a lot easier to stick to my plan when I’ve stocked up on the essentials like steel cut oats, fresh fruits and vegetables, tomato juice, nuts, and lean meats like chicken, fish, cottage cheese and Greek yogurt.
And this is my very favorite way to take the guess work out of what to eat when hunger strikes. My home made soup. Always ready, super healthy, nutritious and full of fiber.
You can adapt the recipe to suit your tastes and include your favorite ingredients. A 2 cup portion can have as much as 4 servings of vegetables!

Breakfast (I rotate these 3):
Steel cut oats with blueberries and Greek yogurt
Two eggs scrambled with fresh spinach and red onions
Large serving (11.5 oz) of V8 juice with a handful of almonds
Big bowl of home made soup
Another big bowl of home made soup
1 serving of lean meat
Salad with home made dressing
Fresh vegetables (all you want to eat!)
Of course sticking to, or getting back to, a regular exercise routine, and including LOTS of water every day are also part of the Quickest Way to Lose Weight!
