Whether you’re just starting a diet, or you’ve hit a plateau, you’re probably looking for easy ways to diet and lose weight — I mean, why make a diet harder than it has to be, right?

There don’t have to be all these hard-to-remember rules, or weird foods to eat or to avoid… and I can prove it.

Here are 10 easy ways to diet and lose weight.

1. Skip Soda

Check the label and you’ll see it’s true: your favorite soda contains a ridiculously high number of calories in each bottle, usually at least 120. And none of those calories come from anything remotely healthy — they’re all empty, worthless calories, designed only to make you crave more of them. And a recent study from the School of Medicine at The University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio suggests that diet soda can actually contribute to weight gain, rather than weight loss, likely because the artificial sweeteners in it trigger your brain to crave high-calorie foods. The bottom line? Skip soda, lose weight.

2. Forget Fast Food

Fast food has one thing going for it — it’s fast.2

But one incredibly easy way to diet and lose weight is to ban fast food, right along with soda.

Why?

Because one fast food value meal (burger or fried chicken sandwich, fries, and soda) can contain all of the calories you’re supposed to consume ALL DAY.

And most of those calories come from fat.

If you can’t avoid fast food, then opt for something healthy from the menu, like a salad (minus the meat, cheese, and dressing) or a grilled chicken sandwich (minus the mayo).

Don’t be fooled into thinking any of the breaded chicken options are any healthier than the burgers — they’re not.

3. Try for Five

So if you can’t have soda and you can’t have fast food, what CAN you eat?

Experts recommend a diet that includes five servings of fresh fruits and vegetables each day.

These five servings will give you all the fiber and antioxidants and other vitamins your body craves, providing a rush of natural, long-lasting energy without the crash, and without the fat of other sweet or crunch snacks.
