The Best Nutrition for Weight Loss

It seems like every week there is new information available about the most nutritious foods or the very best way to lose weight. Navigating the field to find the best nutrition for weight loss can be very challenging, so it helps to have a professional like Jason Kozma available to you! Read the nutrition tips below and then contact Jason to set up a personalized nutrition plan that will help you meet your goals.

1) Slow down. It can take 20 minutes for your brain to register feeling full, so eating too quickly often means eating too much. Slow down, savor the food you are eating, and you may find that you eat less in the process.

2) Use a smaller plate. Playing mind games works! Using a smaller plate helps you eat appropriate portions of food, and also makes you think you are eating as much or more than if the same amount was on a bigger plate.

3) Eat breakfast. A breakfast with plenty of protein and fiber will keep you satisfied all morning and help you follow your nutrition plan for the rest of the day.

4) Enjoy an occasional treat. Savoring small treats — an ounce of dark chocolate, for example — will help you avoid the danger of overindulging in off-limit foods.

5) Turn off the TV. When you are eating, don’t engage in other activities like TV watching or reading. Focusing on your meal will help you stop when you are full, instead of mindlessly eating more calories than you intend to.

6) Eat water-filled foods. These foods help you feel full, and usually offer vitamins and minerals to boot: watermelon, cucumbers, soups, and salads (go easy on the dressing!).

7) Go nuts. Nuts like pistachios and almonds can help drive weight loss, so feel free to add a small amount to your daily snack or meal. Be aware of the high calorie content of nuts, and use them as a garnish or small snack.

8) Boost your fiber intake. Fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains should comprise a large portion of your daily food intake, and they boast high fiber content that will keep you feeling full.
