Swap your morning cereal for a protein-rich breakfast

Fill half of your dinner plate with vegetables
Carbohydrates are converted to sugar in the body and if these sugars aren’t used for energy, they’re likely to get stored as fat. Avoid foods like white rice, pasta, noodles and bread. Cauliflower rice and courgette spaghetti make great alternatives to your standard rice and pasta.
At dinner, instead make sure that at least half of your plate includes mostly green veg and other low-carb vegetable options, such as mushrooms or tomatoes.
Get one portion of good fats in all of your meals
You eat fat – contrary to what you’ve been told. “You might think that eating fat leads to gaining weight, but actually the opposite is true. Fat is not only essential for health, but numerous studies have shown that a diet lower in carbs but higher in healthy fats is the best – and quickest – way to lose weight.”
So the key point is healthy fats – so what sort of foods can we find this in?
Good fats can be found in oily fish, nuts such as walnuts and seeds like flaxseeds and chia seeds. Aim to include a moderate portion of healthy fats at each of your meals during the month
Only eat three times a day – and don’t snack!

For example, you might have breakfast at 9am, lunch at 2pm and dinner at 7pm. It’s also always a good idea to avoid eating late in the evening.
Drink a pint of water before each meal
We at Woman & Home did some digging, and according to recent studies, gulping down a pint of plain old water could also help towards shifting a pound in one month. A study undertaken by the University of Birmingham monitored 12 adults over 12 weeks. Half of the group were asked to drink 500ml of water before each of their meals, and half weren’t. The six that drank water before their meals lost around 2.8 pounds more than those who didn’t, which lead to them on average losing around of 9.4 pounds each over the 12 weeks.
Limit yourself to just one treat meal a week
We all have to have a treat now and again – just not that often!
An order for a quick weight loss programme to be effective, it needs to be something you can stick to. Allow yourself one treat meal per week where you can eat whatever you fancy. Or, spread your treats over the week.
