Losing fat is the hardest thing to do, especially if you’re not actively working out (which, by the way, you should). Dieting to achieve fat loss is even harder, because it takes time and motivation to resist the things that we like to eat or drink.
Imagine having to completely cut off sugar, and having to drink bitter coffee with no added cream or brown sugar in it. A complete nightmare for a lot of us! However, nothing can be achieved without the willingness to try it. Here are a few of the easiest diets you can follow to lose fat.
One Week Trial Low Carb Diet
We know, no diet truly only lasts for one week. You won’t achieve any results in that period of time either, and on that note, you should never trust diets that claims you’d lose weight in only one to two weeks.
This one week menu is just for you to try and see how much you can take on and later determine your own meal plans. For example, maybe you can’t bear the hunger and one beef jerky for snack just does not satisfy you. So maybe, you can add something else and see if it will satisfy your hunger.
And remember, satisfying your hunger does not mean you have to feel full. It means that, basically, you’re no longer hungry. It’s an important distinction between finding out what food makes you full, and what food relieves your hunger. Two burgers might be the only thing to make you full, but if half a burger relieves your hunger, then you should stick with that.
Portion Control Diet
Related to our previous discussion about food that makes you full and food that relieves your hunger, this diet focuses solely on that. Everyday, you are allowed to eat anything you want, but in a smaller portion and more frequently. For example, you’ve ordered a huge sandwich for lunch with a side of french fries and a piece of pie for dessert.
Portion control means knowing that half of what you just ordered is more than enough to satisfy your hunger, so you can eat half the sandwich for lunch, half the pie four hours later as a snack, and the rest of the sandwich for dessert. What about the rest of the pie? You can eat it the next morning for breakfast.
The portion control diet usually tells you to eat five times a day: breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner. All of this should be in a portion that doesn’t make you feel full, but still relieves your hunger.
