Want to drop a size or two this month? It’s more possible than you think!

Incorporate the following nutrition secrets into your daily routine to naturally boost your metabolism, automatically lower your daily consumption of calories and keep your motivation going strong so that you drop excess fat quicker than ever before.

Diet Secret #1: Weigh In Daily (7 to 14 days)

Tracking your weight on a daily basis for 7 to 14 days straight is a really simple way to drop kilos.

A recent Duke study showed that participants who weighed themselves daily lost substantially more weight than participants who weighed themselves five times per week or less.

The act of getting on the scale and seeing your weight helps to understand how certain behaviours translate into weight gained or lost. If you ate a salty, carb-filled meal for dinner then you’ll visibly see the number go up when you step onto the scale the next morning. This will likely prevent you from repeating the weight-promoting behaviour again and will keep your motivation on track. If on the other hand, this creates a unhealthy obsession, stop immediately. Do what works for you.

Diet Secret #2: Switch to Green Tea

Drop weight by simply switching from soft drinks to unsweetened green tea.

The average soft drink consumer ends up consuming over 65,000 extra calories from their beverage of choice each year, calories that quickly add up to kgs gained. Even if your soft drink of choice is diet, there is evidence that the chemical compounds found in diet soft drink spikes your hunger hormones, causing you to overeat. Unsweetened green tea, on the other hand, contains catechins that have been shown to help increase metabolism. Unsweetened green tea also has zero calories.

Diet Secret #3: Go Gluten Free

You don’t have to be allergic to gluten to benefit from a gluten-free diet.

A Columbia University study reported that gluten triggers fattening biochemical changes, due in part to genetically altered wheat. These fattening biochemical changes are in addition to the high-calorie counts of most gluten-containing foods, which means that avoiding gluten will help you drop weight twice as fast.

Rather than jumping from gluten-filled grain products to gluten-free grain products, do your best to trim even the gluten-free grains from your diet. This can be achieved by swapping out tortillas for large lettuce leaves and traditional noodles for noodles made from vegetables.
