Whether you are just starting a weight loss program or trying to lose those last few kg, these tips can help in reaching your nutrition goals. Simply put, here are the ten most important things you need to do in order to reach your target weight. Do all ten and I can guarantee you won’t have to worry about your weight when summer hits. If you continue following fad diets that don’t utilize these ten basic tips, you’ll discover the reason you’re still holding onto that wintertime belly.

1. Fill up on fibre. That includes fiber-rich sources, such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables, which all help increase satiety and fullness at each meal.

2. Be cautious about liquid calories. That means limit juices and high-calorie coffee drinks. Instead, try swapping out your regular glass of O.J. for any whole piece of fruit.

3. Stay hydrated. Not only is water important in delivering nutrients, it also plays an important role in weight loss. Often times, hunger is confused with thirst, so staying hydrated will keep you from craving extra calories.

4. Practice smart snacking. Eating every three to four hours fuels your metabolism and prevents you from overeating at meals. The best combo: Always include a portion of carbs and protein with each snack, such as trail mix or low-fat cheese with whole-grain crackers.

5. Avoid skipping meals. Saving your calories for the evening often leads to overeating and discomfort. Instead, eat regularly throughout the day for optimum energy levels and portion control.

6. Be carb smart. Carbohydrates serve as the body’s primary source of energy. To maximize their impact, always select nutrient-dense carbs, such as whole grains and fruit, instead of simple, processed carbohydrate foods.

7. Limit your alcohol. Just four ounces of red wine contains 80 calories. Limiting those few extra cocktails per week can certainly help lose those last few pounds.

8. Aim for variety. Changing your food each week will help you stay motivated. Eating the same foods over and over again causes boredom, which may lead to quitting your weight loss efforts sooner than expected.

9. Focus on healthy fats. Fat is an important energy source for the body and serves as the delivery system for vitamins A, D, E and K, so don’t avoid them thinking you’ll lose more weight. Instead, choose more plant-based fats, such as nuts and olive oil.

10. Practice mindful eating. Take at least 20 minutes to eat meals. Also, avoid eating in front of the television, computer or while chatting on the phone. By focusing on your meals, you’ll drastically improve your satiety, which can help prevent overeating.
