You’ve been trying to lose weight, but haven’t had much luck because you’re not sure how to get started. Even one small change can offer big results and here are over 40 ways to make it happen.
1: Snack on Protein
Satiate hunger longer by reaching for a protein-packed snack. You can make protein balls ahead of time like these chocolate chip peanut butter protein palls, or get yourself beef jerky from the store.
2: Fruit For Dessert
Skip the empty calories and get a hold of your sugar addiction by eating fruit after dinner instead of reaching for cookies or ice cream.
3: Go Mini
Even healthy recipes aren’t void of calories, so if you tend to go overboard on the portion sizes, make mini versions of your favorite foods like these 100-calorie bite-size strawberry cheesecakes.
4: Bring Beans to Dessert
Considering beans’ fiber, protein, and iron content, everyone should include more legumes in their diet. If you’re having trouble stomaching a bowl of beans, you can still reap the healthy benefits without your taste buds even realizing it. There are tons of bean-loaded dessert recipes, like these chocolate chickpea doughnuts, to appeal to your sweet tooth.
