27 Easy And Surprisingly Effective Weight Loss Tips

21. Completely eliminate modern wheat from the diet.

“Completely eliminate modern wheat from the diet. Even a tiny bit of it screws with (actually stimulates) appetite. Then the weight will fix itself since you will eat less due to feeling less hungry. No calorie counting needed—those methods are not sustainable and not necessary.

Actually, google the book Wheat Belly by William Davis. There are also a few his talks on YouTube. In spite of cheesy title it explains how modern wheat (Triticum aestivum specifically; you can continue consuming other ones such as Einkorn or Emmer) is different and what does it do to your body rather well and references huge body of existing research.

It’s been 2 years and I keep slowly losing weight by doing nothing, and definitely not counting calories—ever since I made that single change. I did try many other methods in the preceding 12 years with no result.”


22. Don’t eat fried foods.

“Don’t eat fried foods. Fried oil is bad for you. Eat lots of good saturated fat (from meats and veggie sources).”


23. Only eat within an 8-hour window every day.

“Intermittent fasting. I only eat within an 8-hour window most days. Actually, usually 6-7. Lunch around 12:30, dinner around 7. No other calories during the day at all.

And no snacking. Ever.”
