Detailed Secrets On How To Lose Weight The Easy Way!

Lately, everyone has been saying, “Britt, it looks like you’ve lost some weight!” And my response is always, “Really? You think so?!” I say that because I have my days where I have my cravings for donuts, ice creams, chips n all haha! But on a regular basis, I normally eat pretty well!

However, I didn’t realize that I’ve been losing weight. I guess because I see the same body in the mirror everyday, I don’t really notice the change! I actually weighed myself and I did lose about 5-7 pounds (and I’m not even trying to lose weight!) So I figured I would share my meal routines with you and other helpful tips!

MORNING MEALS

OATMEAL: For breakfast, I normally eat when I’m at work. I like to eat oatmeal but not just the “Plain Jane” oatmeal, no no no! I like to spice it up a bit! Check out the different combos that I use:

-banana, peanut butter, cinnamon

-apple, peanut butter, cinnamon

-peanut butter, cinnamon

-dark chocolate chips (use in moderation), peanut butter

-strawberries, honey

-other flavor combos to try

Oatmeal Flavor Combos

Oats are rich in carbs, and protein which will help you stay full longer. It also contains soluble fiber which helps with lowering the LDL “bad” cholesterol.

EGG MUFFINS: I’ve also been making egg muffins which contains pretty much everything that’s in an omelet, but in the shape of a muffin. It’s great for those who don’t have time to make breakfast! Here is my recipe below:

If I don’t have time for breakfast then what should I eat?

FRUIT: If you don’t have time for breakfast, grab a piece of fruit or a Greek yogurt!

-apple

-banana

-pear

fruits low in sugar:

-peach

-berries (strawberry, raspberry, blackberries)

-kiwi

-oranges

Fruits With Low Sugar

NUTS: Nuts are also a great option for a quick bite. Nuts are filling and are said to prevent weight gain. Some nuts that would be good to eat are almonds, cashews, peanuts, walnuts, macadamia nuts. Make sure to buy the unsalted nuts to avoid too much salt.

But what if I don’t eat breakfast?

GREEN TEA: If you don’t eat breakfast, I would suggest drinking a cup or two of green tea! Green tea benefits:

-loaded with antioxidants which help fight disease and aging

-increases fat burning and physical performance

-boosts your energy levels

-suppresses your appetite

SNACKS!

It is VERY important to snack throughout the day! If you don’t snack between meals, this can lead to you overeating during your normal meals.

Snacks that I normally eat throughout the day are popcorn, nuts, veggies, rice cakes, piece of fruit like an apple or banana, and a new discovery that is so delicious is dry roasted edamame beans! They taste just like nuts and they’re so addicting!

LUNCH AND DINNER MEALS

For lunch, 90% of the time, I eat leftovers from the dinner my husband or I made the previous day. I think a big reason why I’ve been able to maintain my weight is because I eat cooked foods instead of always buying take out. I also try to limit eating pork and red meat as well.

My leftovers normally contain some type of protein such as salmon, shrimp, or chicken. My side will be either pasta, white or brown rice, etc. But I make it mandatory to incorporate vegetables into my meals whenever I can!

I know some people don’t cook or have the time to cook, so here are some healthy options when ordering out!

Here are some examples of the dinners that I’ve made:

-Shrimp Pasta With Garlic Bread and Green Beans

-Coconut Curry Chicken With Garlic Naan

-Shrimp and Calamari Pasta With Breaded Calamari Rings

-Chicken Burrito

-Asian Style Chicken Ramen Soup

-Salmon Steak And Rice With Veggies and Eggs

And this weight that I’ve lost is just from my eating habits alone! I exercise for about 20minutes maybe once a week. But I’m telling you guys, just by eating correctly you can shed those pounds!

I also drink water everyday! I make my lemon water mixture every morning (sometimes I’ll add a capful of apple cider vinegar for added nutrients) and I drink this every single day during the work week!

I hope this was a helpful guide for you! It may be time consuming, but once you get the hang of everything, it will come so easily afterwards!

*Make sure to check with your doctor before trying any new foods!*

  1. Thanks for all of the yummy looking suggestions! I’m occasionally able to lose weight in such a way, but more often have to try. But it looks like you have a reasonable eating lifestyle that serves you quite well.

  2. These are some great tips! I have a thyroid problem and as a result I have been told I should avoid gluten. In doing that I’ve found that I prefer to stick to buying primarily whole foods and have avoided even most of the “gluten free” alternatives to things like bread and pasta. I’ve been using a lot more vegetables as a base for meals like cauliflower, spaghetti squash and zucchini. I love how I’ve been feeling!
