Everybody knows that weight loss isn’t easy, but losing weight in NYC is especially challenging.  A busy schedule combined with fast and delicious food on every street corner is a recipe for disaster.

Luckily, there are simple yet effective ways to get rid of those excess pounds. By incorporating the following tips into your daily life, you’ll not only lose weight, but you’ll improve your overall quality of life:

1. It’s Not All About the Calories New-york-nutritionist

Of course, counting calories can be a great tool for weight loss. But if you want to avoid feeling ravenous for food all day, eating the right kind of calories is essential.  Eating high-volume foods that are low in calories with leave you feeling fuller for longer. Try adding fresh fruits and veggies to your meal or eat them as a snack.  The high fiber content will help to eliminate cravings.

2. Key Combinations 

If your goal is to lose weight, focus on combining foods that are high in fiber and protein. These combinations pack a powerful punch because fiber works like a sponge, absorbing water and expanding in your stomach. While eating protein sends a hormone signal that tells your brain ”I’ve had enough.” Consider combining meats, beans, and nuts with whole-wheat bread and produce.

3. Eat More Fat 

Sure, fat has twice as many calories as protein or carbs, but that doesn’t mean you should try to cut it out of your diet. If you don’t get enough of it, your brain tells your body to hold on to every ounce of fat you have. Unfortunately, eating more brownies won’t do the trick. Eat a balanced amount of healthy fats found in foods like avocados, nuts, olive oil, and fish.

4. Get Your Zzz’s 

Losing weight in NYC, the city that never sleeps, is tough. If you’re not getting enough sleep, your body is losing water, muscle, and other tissue because of it. Also, lack of quality sleep makes your body feel stressed because it has to work that much harder to keep up with constant demands. Instead of losing fat, you’re losing other precious resources needed for weight loss. Aim for at least 7 hours every night.

Losing weight in NYC can feel like a struggle. But by making a few changes to your diet and schedule, you can boost your metabolism, burn fat, and feel great.
