1. Avoid Starch and Sugar
Starch and sugar stimulate insulin in the body, which stores fat. If your insulin level is high, and cannot be utilized or burnt, the body will store it as fat.
2. Eat more Protein and Veggies
Ensure every meal you consume consists of low carb vegetables and a protein. Intake of protein can boost your metabolism and keeps you fuller for longer. Veggies contains minerals, fiber and vitamins that keep you strong and healthy.
3. Keep healthy snacks at hand
Always keep healthy snacks on you when you leave the house to avoid temptations when having to shop for snacks or buying unhealthy snacks.
4. Drink loads of water
Drinking water helps to boost your metabolism, cleanse your body of waste, and acts as an appetite suppressant.
5. Try my nutrition plan

6. Drink green tea
Green tea is a natural diuretic that has been found to burn up to 70 addition calories in the body. Green tea also contains caffeine which is known to boost your metabolism.
Heavy weights are best for building muscle and improving strength. If you can keep building muscle while dieting and doing your cardio, you are in for some serious fat-burning. Give my 8-minute workouts a try every morning and evening for fast results.
8. Reduce your stress levels
Stress releases cortisol, the stress hormone that also causes weight-gain especially round the belly area. Practice calming breathing techniques or set time aside for meditation (as little as 1minute for beginners and work your way up to longer periods) or just listen to calming music focussing only on the music.
9. Spice up your meals
Spicy foods, and spices like cayenne pepper, contain a compound known as capsaicin which increases the body’s ability to burn calories and speed up metabolic function.
10. Get enough sleep
This is such a common one. Short sleep duration is one factor that contributes to obesity. Studies have shown that people who have good sleep make better food choices and intake low calories.
Walk, run or hike. If you go for a run before dinner your metabolism level will be elevated for the next 2-3hours, which will aid you in burning more calories.
12. Eat a light dinner
Supper should be your lightest meal because most of what you eat will be stored while you sleep.
