Lastly, feel free to make healthy adjustments to your recipes as needed. For example, if you are vegan, vegetarian, paleo, or primal, you can modify your recipes to suit your lifestyle.
Also, we all metabolize food differently. So you may discover you thrive on limited carbs and more fat, or vice versa. Alternatively, you may find that when your weight plateaus, you need to stop eating grains for a few days or longer.
Experimentation is key!
See what works for your unique body. Do not worry about experimenting because weight loss will happen as long as you eat three portion-controlled meals a day and two snacks, stick to low-glycemic carbohydrates (veggies & fruits versus breads, pastas, rice, etc), stay active, and stay away from sugar and processed foods.
Also, you can step up your game by doing exercises such as doing HIIT (High Intensity Interval training) like rebounding, sprinting, cycling, or elliptical, three to four times per week. Exercise will jumpstart your metabolism and support natural detoxification process.
