The Store-Bought Weight-Loss Snack You Should Be Eating but Aren’t

For many years, beef jerky had a bad rap, but the tide has shifted in its favor. Ever since becoming a preferred snack of Paleo dieters and CrossFit enthusiasts, it’s been reintroduced into the healthy mainstream, and many clean, low-carb eaters looking to shed a few pounds are singing jerky’s praises.

Snacking on jerky in between meals is an ideal way to get protein in your diet, a must if you’re trying to lose weight. One study published in The FASEB Journal shows that in addition to a regular exercise routine, doubling your protein intake may be the key to losing fat pounds without dropping muscle mass. In addition to offering 6.6 grams of protein per piece, beef jerky doesn’t raise your level of insulin, one of the hormones that affects how your body stores fat.

With that said, not all jerky is created equally. The best option to ensure your jerky is free of artificial ingredients is to make your own. If you can’t dedicate the kitchen time, just be sure to opt for a brand with all-natural ingredients that’s free of preservatives and nitrates and isn’t too high in sodium. And if you steer clear of beef, turkey jerky is a great option to help you reap these high-protein benefits. Krave Jerky and Epic Bites are two brands we love!

Nutritionists Reveal the Biggest Weight-Loss Mistakes

Nutritionists Reveal the Biggest Weight-Loss Mistakes

If you’re no stranger to the struggles of trying to lose weight| the solution might be a few tweaks to your regimen. We enlisted the expertise of three nutritionists u2014 Stephanie Clarke| RD| and Willow Jarosh| RD| of C&J Nutrition| as well as Mitzi Dulan| RD| author of The Pinterest Diet: How to Pin Your Way Thin and CLIF Bar nutrition partner. Check out what they say are the biggest mistakes most people make when trying to slim down.

| Not Planning Ahead

When hunger strikes and you’re not prepared| that’s when unhealthy decisions are made. Stephanie Clarke| RD| recommends planning ahead as much as possible. If you can| sit down and plan your meals and snacks out for the next week or two in advance| and then hit the grocery store with a list to stock up on everything you need from fruit to veggies to the containers you need to make a week of salads. It means that you’ll have the food you want to eat on hand when you want to eat it| “”which is the key for sticking to healthy eating for the long term.””

| Keeping It to Yourself

If it ever feels like the people closest to you are unknowingly sabotaging your healthy eating efforts| Willow Jarosh| RD| says to “”consider whether you’ve shared your goals with them.”” Tell your family| friends| or co-workers that you’re trying to lose weight| so instead of suggesting going out for ice cream after work| they’ll invite you for a predinner workout. Having the support of everyone around you will make it much easier to stay on track.

| Too Much Protein or Not Enough

While carb-free| high-protein diets are all the rage| and they do offer results| Willow says| “”It’s not sustainable or healthy for the long term| as you’re missing out on vital nutrients”” from fruits| veggies| beans| nuts| seeds| and whole grains. This variety of healthy foods “”helps keep your gut bacteria happy| your digestive system regular| and keeps you feeling satisfied.”” On the contrary| Mitzi Dulan| RD| urges that not eating enough protein can also cause weight gain. She says| “”Since protein helps you to stay satisfied| it is important to make sure you are eating it at every meal.””

| Compensating For Eating With Exercise

Whether you think that run earns you the right to inhale four slices of pizza| or you hit the gym just so you can eat whatever you want later| you’re not only promoting an unhealthy relationship with food| but it can also lead to weight gain| warns Stephanie. A 30-minute run only burns about 250 calories| so if you devour 300 calories worth of dessert| it’s no wonder you’re not losing any weight and actually gaining instead. Use workouts to complement your healthy diet| not to make up for unhealthy eating habits.

| Skipping Dinner For Cocktails

This is detrimental to weight loss for a number of reasons. Willow reminds us that “”drinking on an empty stomach can lead to quicker intoxication|”” so even if you planned to just enjoy a few drinks| you’ll end up losing the ability to make healthy choices and are more likely to order tons of food off the bar menu! Or even if the calories level out because you skipped dinner| you’ll still have missed out on valuable nutrients| dropping your blood sugar levels. The result? Hunger coupled with the effects of alcohol will quickly nix that trip to the gym you planned. If you do enjoy your drinks with a meal| don’t forget they add hundreds of calories without making you feel satisfied| warns Mitzi. The bottom line is to limit calories from beverages| and if you do go out for happy hour| enjoy one drink and spend the rest of the time sipping water.

| Swearing Off Treats

Skipping out on your favorite foods like chocolate| french fries| wine| and ice cream can make a weight-loss diet seem pretty bleak. Since including these foods in small amounts on a regular basis can help prevent an urge to go overboard later| Stephanie and Willow encourage clients to have a “”treat bank”” of 150 to 200 calories each day. Or find healthier ways to indulge u2014 these vegan chocolate mousse cups are only 100 calories!

| Having Cheat Days

You stay on track all week| so you deserve a little reward| right? Not so fast. “”One cheat day can undo all the weight-loss work you’ve put in during the week|”” warns Willow. If you devote an entire day to eating foods that don’t push you toward your goal| “”the only person you’re cheating is yourself . . . and that’s not good in the short term or long term.”” Instead| stick to the one small treat each day| and you shouldn’t need a whole day to let loose.

| Not Keeping Track

Monitoring your daily calorie intake is key when trying to lose weight| Mitzi says| and one of the most accurate ways to keep track is with a food journal. You can write it down with old-school pen and paper or use websites or apps| but make sure you keep track of every bite. “”Research has shown this to be a major key to success for people who lose weight and keep it off|”” Mitzi explains.

| Eating Diet Foods

Reduced-fat peanut butter may have fewer calories| but you’ll find unhealthy ingredients and extra salt and sugar to make up for the flavor. Willow points out that a recent study showed that we might not feel as satisfied with these low-everything diet foods and “”that could cause us to end up eating more in the long run.”” All three nutritionists agree on choosing real food over “”diet”” foods and limiting the processed foods because it’s healthier and more filling.

How Eating Chocolate For Breakfast Can Help You Lose Weight

If you love chocolate, you LOVE chocolate ¡ª there’s no in between. You think about it all the time. You’d eat an entire bar if it didn’t affect your waistline. But it does. So you hold back. You deny yourself the chocolaty goodness you crave until you can’t handle it anymore and end up eating that entire chocolate bar you were trying so hard to ignore. There’s a solution to end this crazy, unhealthy cycle. Just eat chocolate for breakfast.

Yes, you heard it right. To deal with an insatiable sweet tooth, giving into your cravings can actually curb them, preventing sweet binges later in the day. We’re not suggesting you eat half a dozen chocolate-frosted doughnuts with your coffee, but go ahead and have a little taste. Add a few chocolate chips to your overnight oats, sip on a chocolate protein smoothie, or bite into a homemade chocolate almond protein bar. Getting a little taste of something sweet in a healthy way will take your mind off it, so you’ll devour fewer chocolate calories later.

How Often Should You Weigh Yourself If You Want to Lose Weight?

If one of your resolutions is to lose weight, keeping track of your progress is an important part of the process. But how much is too much when it comes to weighing yourself? Experts used to suggest hopping on the scale once each week, but more studies are showing that daily weigh-ins may have more successful payoffs.

Asmall study run by Cornell University found that men and women who weighed themselves daily and tracked the results not only lost weight, but after two years, the average weight regained was close to zero pounds. That’s huge considering many other studies show 40 percent of weight loss comes back within a year. In another small study of college students, those asked to step on a scale every day during the first 12 weeks of classes didn’t put on any weight ¡ª helping avoid the “Freshman 15” altogether. In a different small two-year study of obese gym members, those asked to weigh themselves every day and chart their results lost significantly more weight and were able to keep it off.

On a personal note, I have been weighing myself daily since the end of the Summer, and I’ve found that the constant checking in has kept me on track. My self-control has improved because I know if I mindlessly nosh on a snack before bed, I’ll be seeing it on the scale in the morning. I also have been writing down my weight each day on the Notes app on my phone, and seeing the progress in numbers is its own form of motivation.

Of course, many experts still advise against hopping on a scale every day because the natural fluctuations can create unhealthy obsessions about weight and lead to depression, especially if you have a history of those tendencies. There are other ways to keep track of your progress such as by monitoring how your clothes fit, as well as your energy levels during the day and during workouts, or by using a fitness tracker. But if you’ve been struggling with sticking to your healthy ways, this could be the nudge you need. It’s worth giving it a shot, so try weighing yourself daily for a month or two and see what happens. Just be sure to weigh yourself at the same time every day, such as in the morning after you use the bathroom and before jumping in the shower. Use the same scale every time and it might be worth investing in one that also tracks your body mass index (BMI).

Nutritionists Reveal What to Eat at Lunchtime to Lose Weight

Lunchtime! You know scarfing down a burger and fries isn’t the best choice if you’re trying to slim down, but how do you know what is? We’ve enlisted the expertise of two nutritionists ¡ª Stephanie Clarke, RD, and Willow Jarosh, RD, of C&J Nutrition ¡ª to share the perfect equation for how to make a delicious and satisfying lunch that will help you lose weight. Follow their advice below to start seeing results.

Calories

If you’re trying to lose weight, aim for the 400-to-450 range. If you’re trying to maintain your weight, especially if you work out, aim closer to 500 calories.

Carbs

Yes, you need to eat carbs! Go for 50 to 65 grams, which is 45 to 55 percent of your lunch calories. Carbs offer your brain and your body energy, so skimping can leave you feeling sluggish. Overdoing it can also have the same affect, so stick to this range. Avoid refined carbs, like foods made with white flour and white sugar, and go for whole grains, whole grain breads and pastas, and starchy veggies and fruits.

Protein

Go for the gold and get 20 to 30 grams of protein, which is about 17 to 25 percent of your lunch calories. A healthy dose of midday protein will help prevent the dreaded afternoon slump and will keep you feeling satisfied post-lunch so you’re less likely to reach for sugary pick-me-ups.

Fats

Including healthy fats in your lunch makes your meal more satisfying, so strive for 13 to 18 grams, which is 30 to 35 percent of your total lunch calories. Including healthful sources like nuts, seeds, oils, avocado, and olives can help beat sugar cravings later.

Fiber

Shoot for at least eight grams of fiber, which is 30 percent of the daily recommended total of 25 grams per day. Including fiber-rich carbohydrates (whole grains, starchy veggies, and fruit) and fiber-containing fats (nuts and seeds) will help you reach your fiber goals.

Sugars

Healthy lunches should have four grams of sugar or fewer, but if you enjoy foods that contain natural sugars (like grapes or dried cranberries in your salad, sweet potato or squash in soups, whole pieces of fruit, or natural sweeteners like maple syrup or honey in sauces or dressings), then aim for fewer than 20 grams of sugar. Be mindful of the hidden sugars in certain products like sandwich bread; read labels, and choose those without added sugars.

Timing

Enjoy your lunch about one to three hours after your morning snack. If you eat breakfast around 7:30 and your morning snack around 10, aim to eat lunch around 12. Or if you like to exercise at noon, enjoy your lunch when you get back around 1. If you tend to forget to eat because you’re so busy, set an alarm on your phone or computer to remind you to stop and nosh!

This Snack Hack Can Help You Lose Weight Faster

This Snack Hack Can Help You Lose Weight Faster

Just as you map out your week of lunches (we love mason jar salads!) and dinners (here are the dos and don’ts of meal planning), getting your week’s worth of snacks ready at the beginning of the week is just as important on your road to weight loss. Four- and eight-ounce mason jars make it easy to keep portions under control, and here are some great ideas for morning and afternoon nibbles to add to them.

| Hummus and Veggies

Pack your jar full of veggies to keep the hummus on the bottom.

| Fruit, Yogurt, and Granola Parfait

If you want less sugar, use plain yogurt and plain oats instead.

| Fruit Salad

Adding a little lemon juice will prevent your fruit from browning.

| Veggies With Dip

You can use store-bought dip or make this creamy white bean dill dip.

| Dried Fruit and Nuts

Keep these jars small as nuts and dried fruit are high in calories.

| Carrots and Almonds

A unique yet delicious and fiber-full combo.

| Layered Plain Veggies

The layers make it more fun and easier to pack a week’s worth at a time.

| Chia Seed Pudding

Here’s a simple three-ingredient chia seed pudding recipe you can doll up any way you choose.

| Apples With Nut Butter

If you’re nut free, go for this homemade sunflower seed butter.

| Pretzels With Cream Cheese

Mix chopped fruit and cinnamon or veggies and herbs into the cream cheese for a sweet or savory twist.

| Energy Balls

Here are some of our favorite energy ball recipes.

Want to Lose Weight? Do These 6 Things at Every Meal

Before you lift that spoon, fork, or cup up to your lips, make sure you’re doing these things every time you sit down to eat.

    Drink this: Grab a big glass of water and drink half of it before even starting your meal. It’ll help you feel fuller faster, so you’ll eat less.Your mama was right: Make sure to eat veggies at every. Single. Meal. Yes, even breakfast! Throw broccoli and beans in your smoothie, some mushrooms and tomatoes into your omelet, or zucchini into your oatmeal. And for either lunch or dinner, make your meal one enormous salad ¡ª it’s an easy way to fill up without eating tons of calories. Aim for half your plate to be filled with veggies, and use grains and protein to accent that meal. This is the magic combo: Woman can’t live on carbs alone, and if you tend to feel groggy after your morning bowl of cereal or your midday pasta, this is why. Fiber and protein are both a must. Fiber makes you feel full for longer and protein will sustain your energy and also help keep hunger at bay. Figure out a combo that adds up to at least 25 grams of fiber and between 50 and 100 grams of protein per day (depending on your activity level). Calories count: Keep each meal between 300 and 550 calories. This will allow for two 150-calorie snacks and ensure you’re not dipping below 1,200 calories, which can make losing weight impossible. Mindful munching: When you’re on your phone, computer, or watching TV while eating, it’s easy to be so distracted that you just inhale your entire plate within a matter of minutes. Since your brain hasn’t been given enough time to register that you’ve eaten your fill, you’ll still feel hungry afterward and go to reach for more. Do what you need to do to slow down, whether that be to shut down Facebook, enjoy your meal with a friend, use a set of chopsticks, or eat with your less dominant hand.Three-quarters is the magic number: Eat until you’re almost full, but not quite. If you keep going, that stuffed feeling not only means you ate too many calories for your body to burn off, but working that hard will make you feel foggy and tired. Do not subscribe to the clean plate club! Once you’re almost full, if you still have bites left, wrap up the rest for later.
