When you are thirsty, drink a glass of plain water. Water does not con­tain calo­ries, improves diges­tion, removes tox­ins, pre­vents con­sti­pa­tion, main­tains the body’s water bal­ance. Drink­ing 6–8 glass­es of water a day will speed up the weight loss process.

2. Cit­rus


Cit­rus fruits are low-calo­rie foods. They are also a source of vit­a­min C and fiber, strength­en the immune sys­tem, facil­i­tate the absorp­tion of iron by the body, remove tox­ins and help fight stress. The com­bi­na­tion of water, lemon and hon­ey helps break down fats and improves diges­tion. It is rec­om­mend­ed to drink this drink in the morn­ing on an emp­ty stom­ach. And an orange or lime would be a great mid-after­noon snack.

3. Green leafy veg­eta­bles

Green leafy veg­eta­bles are a store­house of vit­a­mins and min­er­als. Broc­coli, let­tuce, spinach, etc. rich in iron, fiber, help cleanse the intestines. In addi­tion, green leafy veg­eta­bles con­tain vir­tu­al­ly no fat and car­bo­hy­drates and are there­fore very use­ful for a low-calo­rie diet.

4. Yoghurt


The lac­tic acid bac­te­ria found in yogurt help nor­mal­ize diges­tion and stim­u­late the immune sys­tem. Includ­ing yogurt in your diet will kick-start the weight loss mech­a­nism. Of course, it is bet­ter to use unsweet­ened yogurt with­out any fruit addi­tives.

5. Salmon


Salmon is a source of vit­a­min D, phos­pho­rus, vit­a­min B12, niacin and many oth­er ben­e­fi­cial sub­stances. Salmon con­tains omega‑3 fat­ty acids, which aid in the break­down of fat tis­sue and sup­port heart and brain health. Eat­ing salmon also boosts metab­o­lism well, which means it is indis­pens­able for those who want to lose weight.

6. Nuts


Nuts are very high in calo­ries, so many peo­ple think that los­ing weight should be exclud­ed from their diet. Actu­al­ly it is not. Nuts not only speed up the process of weight loss, but also sta­bi­lize the result. Use nuts as a snack. They are good at damp­en­ing the feel­ing of hunger. The main thing is not to over­do it. It will be enough to eat a hand­ful of any nuts in the inter­val between the main meals.

7. Chamomile tea
