As we already mentioned, it’s vital to consume foods that are organic only. You can consume as much meat, eggs, and dairy products as you like in order to prevent cravings.
Sugary foods such as store-bought desserts and sodas are off the menu – this will detoxify sugar in your body and make you feel and look much better.
You can consume fat, only if it’s the healthy kind (butter, organic meats). If you have a craving, you can eat a low-carb meal. Avoid counting calories, as it’s not about them at all. Instead of sodas or fruit juices, you can only drink water or unsweetened tea.
Make sure to check the cans of the drinks you’re buying and avoid those with a high amount of carbohydrates. It’s better if you just stick to water – it will keep you hydrated and is vital for the weight loss process.
