It sounds simple, but reducing or eliminating highly processed foods is the best starting point for most people. Highly processed foods (think candy, chips, cereal, baked goods and even some so-called ‘healthy’ energy or protein bars) are full of sugar, refined carbs and unhealthy fats that can lead to blood sugar imbalances, weight gain and increased inflammation.
By cutting out these foods you automatically reduce your intake of some of the worst foods for weight gain, and then have to replace them with more whole food options such as proteins, vegetables, nuts and seeds and cellular carbohydrates.
There is a lot of talk of cutting carbs, cutting sugar, cutting out dairy, going keto or paleo. What is the most successful way you’ve seen people have success with limiting their diets?
I am often my client’s last resort when it comes to weight loss, they have tried everything but nothing seems to work. Personally, I’ve found that a low carb, higher protein diet with lots of vegetables and healthy fats is the best way to achieve healthy weight loss. This helps to balance blood sugar, boost their metabolism and switch their body into fat burning mode, even when nothing else has worked before.
