1.Eat Protein Bars

There are protein bars on the market that are not loaded with sugars or fake sugars, that can supplement your diet with protein throughout the day. Look for bars that have at least ten or more grams or protein per bar to make it worthwhile. Have on hand for a snack or anytime you're hungry, or need a little boost.

2.Drink Protein Shakes

Protein smoothies are a great way to add protein to your day. There are vegan friendly sources of protein to choose from, then mix it with your favorite fruit and vegetables, a little coconut milk and some yogurt, and you've got yourself a protein rich meal, anytime. A great idea is to invest in a food pulverizing machine to make great smoothies, that give you the pulp, skin and all the nutrients of your fruits and vegetables.

3.Do Aerobic Exercise

Aerobic classes, interval training, running, biking or anything that elevates your heart rate into the fat burning zone, is a great way to stay fit and lose weight. A thirty to forty minute session, three times per week, is recommended to see the most results, while maintaining a healthy diet.

4.Build Muscle

A body at rest with a higher ratio of muscle to fat, burns more fat than a body that has less muscle. A true fact that gets you thinking. If you add some lean muscle to your body, you can be burning fat all day long without lifting a finger. Weight resistance training is a great way to build muscle.

5.Lots of Water

Water flushes toxins from the body and aids fiber in doing its job. Drink at least eight 8oz. glasses of water per day for clearer skin and a healthy intestinal tract. Keep things flowing by flushing your system with enough water, and eat water rich vegetables for an added boost. Spinach is one such vegetable that adds water to your body.

6.Green Superfoods

Green leafy vegetables have so many benefits, there are just too many to list. Broccoli, spinach, kale, bok choy, collard greens, and more, provide cancer fighting properties in addition to calcium for strong bones, teeth and hair. Calcium also aids in weight loss. So add a green leafy vegetable to every meal for a healthy way to lose weight.

7.Lots of Nuts

Nuts are an excellent form of protein for vegans. With important enzymes, a handful of nuts does your body good. Toasted nuts make the protein more easily assimilated by the body than raw nuts, but raw nuts contain more enzymes. Use them on salads, in yogurt and in stir fry meals.


8.Cut Back on Sugar

Overconsumption of sugar is one of the biggest culprits in developing type 2 diabetes. Sugar causes a spike in blood sugar, which in turn causes the pancreas to release insulin to remove the sugar from your blood. Over production of insulin can cause fat storage, and in the long term, can shut down, causing type 2 diabetes.

9.Don't Switch To Soy Meats & Cheese

Soy meats and cheeses can contain lots of fat. Soy can also cause an increase in estrogen in the body, which has been proven not to be good for either gender. You can get your protein from other sources, such as beans, nuts, and powdered proteins, that are much better for your waistline.


10.Don't Drink Fruit Juice

Fruit juice can be almost as bad as eating candy. That may sound surprising because everyone is always told how great fruit is for you. However, it's the pulp and skin that contain the nutrients and fiber, that make it healthy. strip that away, and all you have is the sugar.

11.Choose Sprouted Grains

Sprouted grains are about as real as you can get. This is the healthiest form of carbohydrate you can eat, which will not just convert to sugar in your blood stream. The grains contain fiber for slower absorption, which doesn't cause an insulin spike or fat storage, like white bread or other whole wheat breads.


12.Increase Fiber Intake

Increasing fiber is the number one way to control weight and stimulate weight loss, especially if you eat carbs. Every gram of carbohydrate you eat can be counter balanced by a gram of fiber. So a slice of bread with 15 carbs, can be reduced to just 5 carbs, by eating 10 grams of fiber with it.
