3 best diet secrets
Want to drop a size or two this month? It’s more possible than you think!
Incorporate the following diet secrets into your daily routine to naturally boost your metabolism, automatically lower your daily consumption of calories and keep your motivation going strong so that you drop excess fat quicker than ever before.
Diet Secret #1: Weigh In Daily
Tacking your weight on a daily basis is a really simple way to drop pounds.
A recent Duke study showed that participants who weighed themselves daily lost substantially more weight than participants who weighed themselves five times per week or less.
The act of getting on the scale and seeing your weight helps to understand how certain behaviors translate into weight gained or lost. If you ate a salty, carb-filled meal for dinner then you’ll visibly see the number go up when you step onto the scale the next morning. This will likely prevent you from repeating the weight-promoting behavior again and will keep your motivation on track.
Diet Secret #2: Switch to Green Tea
Drop pounds by simply switching from soda to unsweetened green tea.
The average soda drinker ends up consuming over 65,000 extra calories from their beverage of choice each year, calories that quickly add up to pounds gained. Even if your soda of choice is diet, this simple swap will result in pounds lost.
While diet soda doesn’t contain calories, there is evidence that the chemical compounds found in diet soda spike your hunger hormones, causing you to overeat. Unsweetened green tea, on the other hand, is calorie free and contains catechins that have been shown to help increase metabolism.
Diet Secret #3: Go Gluten Free
You don’t have to be allergic to gluten to benefit from a gluten free diet.
A Columbia University study reported that gluten triggers fattening biochemical changes, due in part to genetically altered wheat. These fattening biochemical changes are in addition to the high calorie counts of most gluten-containing foods, which means that avoiding gluten will help you drop weight twice as fast.
Rather than jumping from gluten-filled grain products to gluten-free grain products, do your best to trim even the gluten-free grains from your diet. This can be achieved by swapping out tortillas for large lettuce leaves and traditional noodles for noodles made from vegetables.
Don’t forget to exercise: the quickest way to reshape your body is with a combination of exercise and smart eating. Please feel free to call or email me to get started on your body transformation. That’s what I’m here for!
Bonus Diet Secret #4!
You’ve heard that eating small meals throughout the day helps to keep your metabolism going strong, but you should really think of these as “mini meals” rather than small meals. Eating too many calories in these mini meals will do more harm than good in your quest for pounds lost.
An effective mini meal must contain a serving of healthy protein – BUT it’s important that you avoid eating too much of a good thing. Consuming more than 3 ounces of protein in a single sitting is counterproductive towards fat loss and could easily result in weight gain.
Turkey Snack Meatballs
Wholesome snacking can be just as quick, simple and convenient as junk food snacking. Really! All it takes is a little bit of forethought. Make a batch of these Turkey Snack Meatballs on the weekend to set you up for a week filled with smart, healthy snacking. And just like that you take another giant step towards that leaner, healthier, more energetic you. The best version of you.

My results over the last 18 months have been superb. The general improvement in conditioning has been augmented with better posture. I'm honored to have this opportunity to recommend Moe's services to others, particularly to folks who feel they've been underserved to some extent by other professionals in this field.
Moe coached me to move beyond my comfort levels. He was great at providing motivation to stick to the program on those weeks where nothing seemed to go right. It was those sticking points that were my down fall when I was on my own. Over the course of three months, he worked with me to get my body fat down to 11% - enough to see my ab muscles flex.
The results I have achieved through following Moe’s program have well exceeded my expectations. With Moe’s organization, dedication, knowledge, and the complete program he puts together, he makes it virtually impossible NOT to succeed.
