4 Keys for How to Lose 20 Pounds
While the keys to how to lose 20 pounds are simple, they’re also very specific. Yes, there are foods you need to get rid of, but I’m going to point you to the ones that can wreck your metabolism. Meanwhile, you’ll learn about what fat-burning foods to consume more of, what exercise style works best for fat burning and the kinds of supplements that can assist your efforts.
1. Remove the Metabolism Death Foods
These three foods can absolutely ruin your weight-loss efforts. I call these the metabolism death foods. You will want to remove and replace this foods with healthy alternatives if you want to see quick results.
Brown and white cane sugar cubes isolated.Processed Sugar: Contrary to popular belief, fat isn’t the first thing that will make you fat … it’s consuming too much sugar. Sugar can be hidden under names like corn syrup, dextrose, fructose, juice concentrate, maltodextrin, raw sugar and brown sugar. These sugars can often be hidden in things that sound like health foods, including fruit juice, granola bars, dressings and protein bars.
What to do instead: Eliminate and replace all of these types of sugar with natural sweeteners like green stevia and raw honey, but even both of these in moderation.
Caution Tape Wrapped Around Whole GrainsWhole Grains: I know it may seem like “whole grains” like wheat bread are healthy, but most are far from helping your metabolism. Three of the main compounds in grains are gluten, starch and phytic acid, all of which can cause issues. Gluten causes inflammation, starch turns into sugar quickly, and phytic acid binds to minerals, so you are not really getting many nutrients when you consume whole grains.
What to do instead: Replace your daily intake of grains with fruits and vegetables or consuming up to one piece daily of a sprouted grain bread or sourdough. When it comes to using flour, switch to coconut flour — it’s the perfect flour for fat loss.
Canola or Vegetable Oils: Canola oil or other vegetable oils are sure to slow down your fat loss and cause you to store unwanted body fat. Genetically modified hydrogenated oils cause inflammation throughout your body, cellular toxicity and are high in calories.
What to do instead: Replace all vegetable oils with beneficial coconut oil and grass-fed butter to promote more rapid fat loss.
