Yes, intermittent fasting could help you lose a significant amount of weight-but what if you only want to lose like, 10 pounds?
Your solution: tiny tweaks. “Small lifestyle changes can really add up and be pretty easy to implement-ifyou know where to begin,” says Amy Gorin, R.D.N., owner of Amy Gorin Nutrition in the New York City area. “They key is finding changes that seem very doable within your day-to-day routine. These can really add up to big weight-loss benefits if you keep up with them over time.”
So which of your daily habits should you start rehabbing first? Here’s how to lose 10 pounds the easy way.If your scale’s been holding steady at the same number for weeks, you might need to think about portion control. It’s easy to accidentally overindulge, so Gorin says learning to eyeball portions is key.
“I often recommend that clients measure foods at home for a couple of weeks, so they can get used to what serving sizes look like and can better judge,” she says. A tablespoon of olive oil, for example, should be about the size of a poker chip.
The good news is that you don’t have to measure veggies-as long as you’re steaming them or eating them mostly raw, they’re so low-cal you can load up your plate with them.
