Not only do we all wish we could lose weight, we always want to lose it fast! You know, those extra pounds of fat sitting in the bottom half of our tummy and staying around all summer. And to help make sure that our dreams having a great beach body don’t fade away, it will take some different exercises and some healthy eating plans to get us where we want to go.
Sometimes, adding a healthy food combo to our exercises helps us lose weight faster than relying on our endless hours of doing sit ups. So in this article, we are going to highlight some weight loss diets that you should know about if you want to shed those extra pounds fast!
You know that there are certain foods you shouldn’t eat when you are trying to lose weight. And eating unhealthy food is one of the leading causes of obesity and overweight in individuals. While the foods highlighted below are not complete diets per se, they are foods that can be eaten alone or paired together to give you the very best.
So check them out, try them in your weight loss journey, and let me know what you think!
Vegetables high in fiber: For anyone who has thought about losing weight and has sought advice, this is always the starting point. Veggies are high fiber, potassium and are indeed the sources of countless nutrients needed for anyone who wants to shed weight fast. By incorporating these into your meals, you will be on your way to achieving that body you really want.

Low calorie shakes/meals and nutrition bars: It is obvious that most of the regular foods we take in on a daily basis contain a ton of calories. And in order to lose weight fast, there is the need to substitute these foods for far healthier ones. Nutritional bars are one way to go, low calorie shakes are another, and they take care of your cravings while leaving your body with the perfect amount of nutrients and calories it requires to work.
Fruits: The importance of fruits can never be undermined. Just make sure that you’re not taking them in as a juice since their sugars are highly concentrated in this form.
Salmon: Though this fish is fatty, it contains Omega-3 fatty acid which is great for your health. Known specifically for its low calories, this fish is an ideal meal if you’re looking to lose weight in no time.
Sweet Potatoes: These are a must add to your meal. Sweet potatoes are low in calories and are a great source of Vitamins B6 and C. They can in fact be added to the salmon dish above to create an awesome low calorie main meal.
Quinoa: I playfully call quinoa “the legendary rice replacement.” High in fibre and protein, this meal can keep you filled for hours hence why you don’t feel the need to munch on something shortly afterwards.
Tuna: This is another food that is high in protein and low in calories.
Soups: Soups are an excellent way to eat your solids and as studies have shown, helps to reduce calories. Because of their high water content, you can eat soups in small quantities, feel filled while saving yourself from consuming too much than is necessary!
Though there are tons of foods that can be incorporated into your weight loss diets (and would help you lose weight at an amazing speed), these are definitely the ones you want to get started with!
