You want to lose weight the fast way? Some may object to what im going to tell you..but i find it works really well...
1)Drink lots and lots of water, your body needs to flush itself out!
2)Cut down on fat grams, and refined carbohydrate grams...ex
ont go eating smokies and hot dogs and beef burgers..there is nothing wrong with beef, if its lean... Forget bread, pasta and stuff that contains anything white aka: White flour, white sugar, white bread, pastries, cakes,cookies.
3)Eat lots of colorful veggies, you need the fiber.
4) Exercise daily..Get 30 minutes in..thats it..start there and work your way up..And when i mean exercise.. i dont mean lollygagging around.. i mean really giving it your best.
5)Continue to keep soda out of your diet..if you have to..drink diet.
6) Get at least half you weight of protein grams in your diet.. Here is an example:
breaky: 2 egg omlette with a cup of veggies and some skim milk cheese shredded
Snack: Pickles or veggies along with a protein shake ect.
Lunch: Sandwich on whole grain bread or lettuce roll up(aka..lettuce as your bread) including low sodium lean deli meat, pickles tomatos... OR ...tuna or chicken salad.
Dinner: 8-12 oz of protein(weigh this before its cooked) Make sure your calorie count for your meat isnt above 300-400 calories or its too much fat.
Include a side green salad with a vinegrette or cook some veggies with a tsp of olive oil and have on the side.
Dessert: Try a sugar free reese penut butter cup or a sugar free jello cup..
If you are in search of a diet thats going to help with your belly..it needs to be a lower/moderate carb diet... But it also needs to have a lower fat content..because calories still count.
As far as getting yourself into losing weight: That comes from the inside, no one can make you lose the weight..no one can be your excuse not to and no one can do it for you..YOU have to do it for you because you want to.
PS: your vegetarian..sub the meat above for veggie/soy products and eggs..
There are lots of options out there and lots of diets, you have to find what works for you and stick to it.. So in the words of NIKE "JUST DO IT!"
