The following suggestions may be helpful in your attempts to speed up weight loss. Give them a try!

Include protein in your breakfast

Protein is a fabulous nutrient if you want to speed up weight loss. Not only does it keep you feeling full and satiated but it also helps to build muscle tissue. You may not find yourself craving any snacks during the hours before lunch time.

Eggs are an excellent source of protein to have during breakfast time. You can boil them, poach them, fry them, or even make an omelette. Boiling and poaching eggs will help keep the calories down as they do not require the use of oil, butter or fat.

Have some water before eating

Try having a glass of water when meal-time is just around the corner. It may help reduce the amount of food that you will consume. In addition, people often mistake thirst for hunger. So you may find yourself looking for snacks during the course of the day when in fact you may be thirsty. Be sure to hydrate adequately during the day.

Reduce sugary beverages

Avoiding or cutting down on sugary beverages can save you from taking in hundreds of unwanted calories. Opt for some water or other drinks that are lower in calories instead.
