Weight Loss Tips


These are seven quick weight loss tips to jump start your healthy New Year, and aid your New Year’s Resolution of losing weight.

Fat loss is important, REMEMBER THAT. That’s why I shy away from saying weight loss only. Changing the body’s composition from fat to lean muscle is the number one goal. Weight loss will naturally follow. Implement these quick hitter weight loss tips to your weight loss arsenal and see results. Good luck to everyone and keep those New Year’s Resolutions!

1. Chew more gum, try 4 sticks or pieces a day (try sugarless).

Method to the madness: If you keep your mouth engaged and chewing you cut the chance of filling it with junk. A fresh mouth is a clean mouth and keeping that feeling doesn’t involve Big Macs!

An added bonus is the extra calories you’ll burn chewing (not a lot I must admit) and not to mention the awesome jaw development you will enjoy. Happy chewing future Jay Leno.

2. Brush your teeth five times a day.

Same theory as the gum, the fresher your mouth the more effort it took to make it clean the less likely you will be to ruin it with overeating. Plus you’ll be all sexy with your new white teeth. Yipeee!

3. Eat 2 pounds of Blueberries a day.

As close to God’s food as possible. Good fiber source, tons of antioxidants…some benefits that scientist haven’t even uncovered yet. Blueberries are also excellent for eye health for all your four eyes.

4. Eat 2 pounds of unsalted, unsweetened mixed nuts.

Get super charged with Omega-3 fatty acids with almonds, walnuts, pecans, peanuts, etc. Lubricate your arteries with the right fats that nuts possess. Also enjoy nuts as a protein source. Mix them with raisin and dates for a pick me up.

5. Drink 7 cups of Green Tea, no sugar.

Cleanse your insides and detoxify. Antioxidants and a serene calming affect is what Green Tea offers. Drinking Green Tea is also a great way to take in more water, since its main ingredient is water, I’m a genius.

6. Eat green leaf salads, no dressing, just Olive oil twice a day.

Green Leaf vegetables provide iron, fiber, and essential vitamin and minerals. Some up your intake of spinach, watercress, and romaine lettuce. Salad is a key player in digestion and gives our bellies the right roughage needed to process our foods most efficiently. Use olive oil as the only topping. Olive oil is awesome on its own, I drink it right out the bottle twice a day.

7. Don’t drink any juice, of any kind.

While trying to lose weight do your best to reject juice. Unless you are “juicing” yourself with a processor and fresh vegetables and or fruits. My stance on this is firm, just take a look at the back nutritional label of your favorite juice. You will find the sugar content per serving to be 32 grams on the low and up to 45 grams. Too many preservatives as well. Concentrate, not from concentrate, who cares just stay away. I am a fan of pomegranate, cranberry, blueberry and raspberry juices but for the initial 8 weeks of your training program you should refrain.

Good luck and I have seven more Weight Loss Tips coming.

    Brushing your teeth 5 times a day is NOT a good idea or something you should be advising. It would wear away the enamel.

  2. FrankNo Gravatar says:

    Thanks for the tips. I’m planning on loosing a few pounds in the new year, and I’m sure these tips will come in handy. Thanks.

  3. SteveNo Gravatar says:

    Fat loss tip number 4 seems commendable, particularly on the aspect of packing the body with Omega 3 nutrients. Though I would recommend a daily supplementation of milled flax seed instead of 2 pounds of mixed nuts. The benefits of flax seed begins with the dietary fiber contained in its husk that helps with weight loss and the Omega 3 nutrients in its oil that regulates our metabolic functions.

    Adam is right, gentle brushing or maybe listerine. thanx Adam can i get a free visit to your dental office, you are an orthodontist, right?

  5. BrettNo Gravatar says:

    Nice list, the thing I liked most is that they are not the usual list of tips. I like the variety, the juice one is the one I think I will have the most problem with, I need to start drinking more water!

  6. Dennis RosatoNo Gravatar says:

    Brett attack the water! Cleanse the kidneys! Try for 12 glasses a day at first. Then work your way up to 18 to 22 a day. You will improve your skin and give your joints much needed lubrication. Muscles love water as well. I must admit you have to work your way up to that level of water consumption. But embrace it and you’ll never go back. Only draw back is that you became really acquainted with the restroom in the early stages. But as you see clearer urine you feel a sense of accomplishment. (HOPE THAT WASN’T TOO GROSS.) Best of luck Brett.

  7. BrettNo Gravatar says:

    Defiantly not too gross, hah. Well explained though. I want the start drinking more water for overall healthy instead of weight loss and I look forward to seeing the results. Too many people don’t consider water as important as it actually is. Thanks for the responses Dennis and Fat Man!

  8. WOW! I really liked your tips. Mainly the 6th tip on green leaf salads, definitely i will use that tip. Thanks for the tips.

  9. 5 times a day would work – besides, just as the advice to “floss every day” might not be followed, perhaps with mentioning 5 times a day folks would start brushing 3 times instead of 2 times a day. Once you have brushed you resist the urge to grab an additional meal or snack. Its a great idea.

  10. I agree with Adam, brushing 5x daily is bad for the teeth.

    Not sure I agree on the juice thing. In moderation I think it is fine.

    I lost 15kg myself by not eating all that different, a little healthier but not much more. I didn’t cut anything out.

    I simply started to eat less. A good breakfast to start the day then I take a typical hot meal and eat half of it in the early afternoon and the rest in the evening.

    Now I eat what I’ve always supposed to have eaten and not a “plate full” which is simply too much food for me.

  14. John KNo Gravatar says:

    Nice and useful tips but I agree with Adam(#1), 5 times sounds too much.

  16. KikaNo Gravatar says:
