To lose weight, you need to eat more protein for breakfast and cut down on alcohol intake, says nutritionist Melissa Mitri.
According to the publication Eat This, Not That!, Mitri listed five simple rules for every day to help lose weight:
The nutritionist cited a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition that confirms the effectiveness of high-protein diets. She added that eating protein for breakfast helps you stay satiated longer.
According to Mitri, alcohol contains empty calories and sugar and can lead to a bloated stomach. It's also harder to avoid junk food when intoxicated.
In order not to make a mistake, you should pay attention to the composition of the food.
For example, sugar may be contained in juice, convenience foods, and flavored yogurts.
Specifically, she suggests drinking a glass of water before meals. "Water helps improve digestion, provides energy and curbs appetite. One study showed that those who drank 200 milliliters of water before meals ate less and felt more satisfied," she explained.
Until a person realizes exactly what their mistake is, she said, attempts to lose weight will not yield the desired result.
