Make these simple changes and lose fat.

Do you want to lose weight fast? One expert claims to know the trick. Kimberley (@heal_with_kim) is a weight loss and nutrition expert who regularly shares tips and tricks with her followers. In a recent post, she revealed simple ways to lose weight fast. "This is what you're gonna do if you wanna lose 10 pounds. Now, we're all different. I know. Just try it ten days," she says. Body Network's Resident RDN, The Diet Diva Tara Collingwood, also weighs in.

Eat Protein in the Morning


Kimberley recommends starting your day with a protein-rich breakfast. "You'll have less cravings, you'll have more energy and you'll eat less throughout the day," she says.

Pair Carbs with a Healthy Fat or Protein


"Eat your carbs with a healthy fat or protein," she continues. "Foods such as breads, pastas, and rice have a very high glycemic index. Eating these types of foods together will slow down the absorption of sugar in the bloodstream."



Next, "workout, exercise just a little bit," she recommends. "Even the smallest amount of muscle mass growth can help you burn calories throughout the day."

Try It for 10 Days


"Try for ten days, a 12 or 13-hour fast, which means you're going to stop eating at night and you're gonna wait 12 to 13 hours before having your breakfast. You got this," Kimberley said.

"And your last step that you're gonna do every single day for these 10 days is to believe in yourself. Take out a journal and write every single day why you deserve to be healthier, why you deserve to have the body that you love. To feel stronger, to have energy, to feel good within yourself, to feel confident. Remind yourself each and every day why you're doing these things," she concludes.

Body Network's Resident RDN, Tara Collingwood, MS, RDN, CSSD, LD/N, ACSM-CPT, a Board Certified Sports Dietitian and co-author of the Flat Belly Cookbook for Dummies agrees with some, but not all, of her suggestions. Protein with breakfast "is always a good idea to keep you satiated and provide lasting energy and has been linked to fewer cravings later in the day," she says. And balancing protein and fats along with carbs provides better blood sugar control and also keeps you more satiated than carbs alone.

12-Hour Fasting Is Good

Intermittent fasting concept with a woman sitting hungry in front of food and looking at her watch to make sure she breaks fast on the correct time. A dietary modification for healthy lifestyle.

Collingwood does agree that building muscle is great for weight loss. "The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn every single minute of the day." As for fasting, "going 12 hours each day without food is a good guideline for fasting," she says. "You don't need to go 16 or more hours as some intermittent fasting plans recommend." And journaling is a great habit. "Motivation goes a long way when sticking to healthy habits," she says.
