1. Drink Lemon Water Each Morning
A lemon drink is a great boost to your metabolism. You should stir three teaspoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice into a glass of water. This should then be drunk as soon as you wake, before you have anything else to eat or drink. This drink is very effective at removing toxins from your body and will also help to cleanse your liver.
2. Eat The Right Foods For Breakfast
Eating the right breakfast can help to set you up for the rest of the day. A combination of fruit and nuts is often the best choice. Stick with citrus fruits such as oranges and grapefruit, and mix it up with some apples.
If you find that you are still feeling hungry after you have eaten your fruit, then eat some almonds or hazelnuts that will provide you with the good type of fat.
Ninja Tip: Make smoothies combining your favorite fruits and nuts, and you end up with a satisfying yet super slimming choice! The free 100 Smoothies for Weight Loss kindle book by Jackson Nash is a great way to easily incorporate smoothies in your weight loss routine.
3. Your Lunch Should Be Full Of Healthy Fats and Protein
Opt for eggs wherever possible as this will provide you with the protein that you need. Greek yoghurt, coconut and avocadoes can also add some great protein and fats to your meals. Eating a lunch that is full of fat and protein can help to keep you full for at least four hours, which will see you through to the middle of the afternoon.
4. Healthy Snacking Is OK
There will probably come a point during the middle of the afternoon where you find yourself getting hungry. A snack at this point is a good idea because it can stop you overeating at dinner. As long as you ensure that the snack is healthy, then this will not slow down your weight loss, it can actually help to increase it. A ketogenic fat bomb like I mentioned before is a great example.
Ninja Tip: If you don’t have time to prepare your snacks, make sure you don’t fall into the quick junk food trap. Be prepared by always carrying some superfood bars in your bag, like these delicious bars with chia seeds!
5. Don’t Eat Dinner Too Late
You need to give your body time to digest your dinner properly before you go to bed, and therefore it should really be eaten before 6pm, or as close to this time as possible. You should always leave at least an hour before eating and going to bed.
Ninja Tip: Stock up on a natural digestion tea to soothe your bowels and stimulate your metabolism – sipping dandelion root tea has become one of my favorite quiet down rituals before bedtime.
