Have you been trying to lose weight but just can't seem to get the nutrition part down pat? Here are the best nutrition tips to help you get over the hump and lose the weight once and for all. 

Most good personal trainers will tell you that in order to lose weight a healthy diet is a must. Some go so far as to say that losing weight is 80 per cent diet, 20 per cent exercise. Having a healthy diet full of nutrition and stripped of added sugars or fats will put your body in the best position possible to reap the rewards from your time in the gym. Here are some of the best nutrition tips to help you achieve your weight-loss goals once and for all.

Best nutrition tips for losing weight

While exercise is vitally important to achieving your weight-loss goals, not backing it up with the right nutrition can sabotage the whole endeavour. Here are some of the best nutrition tips for weight loss, courtesy of our top personal trainer in Calgary. 

Reduce your carb intake

When it comes to the biggest nutrition tip for losing weight, reducing the amount of starches and sugars — or carbohydrates that you consume, is top of the list. By doing so, you'll find that your less hungry as the day goes on and you'll generally eat less as well. Some dietitians even say it's not uncommon for people to drop as much as 10 pounds within their first week of instituting a low-carb diet. Without exercising.

Make sure you get enough protein, vegetables, and healthy fat

Once you've cut out carbs or reduced your intake of them substantially, you need to replace those foods with protein, vegetables, and healthy fat. Getting enough protein is the pillar of this plan, with some experts saying increased protein consumption can cause you to burn an additional 80-100 calories a day. It will also make you feel fuller for longer and reduce your cravings to binge eat unhealthy food late at night. When it comes to vegetables, you'll want to make sure that you're eating low-carb ones as often as you can. Some examples of low-carb vegetables include: 

  • Cauliflower
  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Kale
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumber

Lastly, you'll want to make sure you're getting the healthy fat your body needs now that you've cut out carbs, otherwise it could be very difficult to stay on track with your new weight loss diet. You can find healthy fat in: 

  • Avocados
  • Olive oil
  • Canola oil
  • Peanut butter (as long as it doesn't have any added sugars or trans fats)

Try to exercise at least three times a week (and lift weights when doing so!)

While it isn't necessary to exercise in order to lose weight after instituting the above nutrition plan, it can aid greatly in helping you achieve your weight-loss goals faster. By exercising at least three times a week — and lifting weights while doing so — you'll burn a high amount of calories and help stop your metabolism from slowing down, which is a common side effect of losing weight. If you're not sure where to start at the gym, get in touch with us and we'll show you the ropes. It's a lot less daunting than you may think.
