Always eat breakfast and high water content foods to lose weight
If you eat too little, your metabolism will shut down & you won't lose weight. Always eat breakfast to rev up your metabolism and balance blood sugar. Remember that water moves fat out of the body and keeps the kidney in better running order. Eat high water content foods like cucumbers, watermelon, brocolli, peppers, asparagus, radishes, zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes, cantalope and see the pounds melt off. Raspberries, Strawberries, well any berry are good too!
I like to eat light two days a week (my lower calorie limit) and moderately 3 days a week (in the middle of calorie limit) and splurge 2 days a week (top of my limit both days, and even 100 to 200 calories over my limit one of the two days).
This way my body doesn't know what I'm doing and it keeps my metabolism revved up. 9
