2. Eat bread, but make sure it’s rye

Bread is an essential food in any healthy diet. However, we need to choose the right variety to go with the food we’re going to be eating.

  • The most beneficial is, without a doubt, rye bread. As with cinnamon, this grain helps regulate blood sugar levels.
  • It’s really filling—more so than any other type of bread. In fact, when it comes to dropping a pant size, toasted rye bread is a huge help.
  • Rye bread is also ideal for breakfast. Its carbohydrates release slowly to provide you with a steady source of energy for hours.

3. No more sauces. Olive oil is the best dressing

When we’re making a salad or cooking on the grill, we all love our sauces, dressings and marinades, like barbecue, Caesar, sweet and sour, tartar sauce…

  • We know it makes food even more delicious. But in order to drop a pant size, you’ll need to limit the sauces and dressings you eat.It’s not about completely eliminating them from your diet, but limiting them to occasional use.
  • The best dressing for your food is olive oil. It keeps fat from accumulating in the abdomen and it’s good for your heart.
  • When it comes to weight loss, saturated fats are key. Despite what many people think, foods like olive oil help manage cholesterol levels and promote weight loss.

To take advantage of all its benefits and drop a pant size, consume a teaspoon of olive oil every morning before breakfast with a little lemon juice. Wait half an hour before eating breakfast.

4. If you crave something sweet, eat some dark chocolate

An ounce of dark chocolate a day is good for your heart’s health and will satisfy your craving for something sweet. It also stimulates the digestive system and provides plenty of nutrients that your heart needs to stay healthy.

And how could you resist? When you’re hungry between meals, snack on a piece of fruit, some nuts and a little dark chocolate.

You’ll enjoy the endorphin boost!


5. Instead of a latte, get a tall coffee

Coffee is really good for weight loss. It speeds up the metabolism, suppresses your appetite and is an excellent diuretic.

However, you need to watch what you put in it. Milk is high in fat and doesn’t digest well. Adding sugar isn’t good either.

  • Try using other natural sweeteners like coconut sugar or cinnamon. Drinking a large black coffee is best.
  • Adding a little extra water to your cup of coffee is, without a doubt, a good way to make your breakfast healthier, easier to digest and more filling.
