Carbs, or carbohydrates, are a lot of the times the main culprits for people gaining weight, so eliminating or limiting foods high in carbs can pay dividends in your weight loss journey. Although pasta and bread are really tasty, they aren’t doing you any help with losing weight.
Processed foods are abundant nowadays and are present in almost every American household. The problem is these foods are in no way good for your health. These processed foods often contain a large amount of preservatives that help keep the product on the shelves at the store. These preservatives are terribly fattening and an overall no-no for weight loss. An alternative to giving into these processed foods is finding your favorite all natural foods and incorporating those into your new diet.
Calories are a big part of weight fluctuations. It really is simple when it comes to calories though. The more calories that you eat above the needed amount, the excess calories will be put towards gaining weight. The less you eat, the more the body will need energy and target fats and burn them off, which leads to losing weight. You can ask your doctor what your target caloric intake is and from there you can closely track the calories you intake and make adjustments when needed.

This strategy consists of designating a feeding period; where you will eat all your meals, and a fasting period; where you refrain from eating. Further research should be done about this to find the right ratio for your schedule and your needs.
