DON'T be a slave to your scale. SCALES LIE! Did you know you can lose INCHES but still GAIN WEIGHT? As you enjoy a vegan diet combined with exercise (!), you will begin to build muscles where you didn't have them before. No, not "he-man" muscles, but muscles which help you tone to get rid of the flab. Muscle is denser than fat; therefore, as the muscles grow and the fat is burned off you will see a reduction in inches while the scales remain where they were. Hide your scale away, and pull out your measuring tape instead;
Whether salty soup or beer is to blame for your bulging belly, lemon tea can help fight the bloat thanks to its D-limonene content. The antioxidant compound, which is found in citrus rind oil, has been used for its diuretic effects since ancient times. But until recently, there were no scientific findings to back the claims. An animal study published in the European Journal of Pharmacology confirmed D-Limonene has a therapeutic effect on metabolic disorders in mice with high-fat-diet-induced obesity
In order to help you slim down and optimize your health, vegetarian or vegan meals should contain plenty of vegetables, fruits, beans, lentils, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and healthy plant-based fats like avocado. I’ve met tons of “junk food vegetarians and vegans” who don’t eat the minimum recommended servings of produce and live on highly processed foods like faux pepperoni pizza, veggie hot dogs, vegan cookies, candy, and ice cream. It’s not just about getting the animal-based ingredients out; it’s also about eating whole, nutrient-rich foods.    
Like protein, fiber slows the rate at which your body plows through carb calories so you feel full for longer and maintain steadier blood sugar levels, one reason why research consistently links fiber intake to weight loss. That means fibrous whole grain bread tends to be a better choice than white bread and also explains why fruits, which contain fiber and valuable vitamins in addition to sugar, beat straight-up candy every time.
In other words? "Drinking makes you more likely to eat sh*t," Dr. Seltzer says, referring to drunk foods. At the same time, he stops short of asking patients to quit alcohol cold-turkey to lose weight. Plus, research suggests you don’t have to, as long as your intake is moderate—i.e., less than about a drink a day. "If you drink a glass of wine every night and notice you eat more afterward, eat less early to account for this," he says. "Or, if you’re drinking four glasses of wine a week, drink three instead so you’ll won’t feel such a big difference."
Olive oil and avocado both have high levels of vitamin E, which is excellent for your skin health, as well as high levels of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. Walnuts, chia and flaxseed (ground flaxseed is best) are high in plant-based omega-3 oils, an anti-inflammatory that helps your body release excess water or toxins. Coconut oil contains lauric acid, which protects the lining of your gut, preventing nutrients from seeping through (leaky gut syndrome) and the development of food sensitivities.
Trim calories without feeling deprived by dividing your plate like this: Fill half the plate with low-calorie—yet satisfying, fiber-rich—vegetables. Divide the other half of the plate into two equal portions (quarters). Fill one of these quarters with a lean protein, such as chicken, fish, lean beef or tofu. (Research suggests that, gram for gram, protein may keep you feeling fuller longer than carbohydrates or fat.) Fill the other quarter with a filling, fiber-rich whole grain, such as brown rice or quinoa.

Another weight loss aid that is available in the UK is orlistat, a medication that works by reducing the amount of fat absorbed by your body from the food you eat. It is a prescription only medication and a GP or online doctor need to assess whether it’s suitable for you. Orlistat does not affect your appetite and you need to eat a low fat diet while taking it.
This supplement is the #1 best seller on Amazon for carb blockers, but we think the appetite suppressant is the better selling point. It has 1000 mg of Garcinia Cambogia and potassium, chromium, and calcium to make sure your body is suppressing your appetite, all while avoiding the possible negative side effects of dieting. And with its unique formula, this supplement is designed for maximum absorption.
In my research, I sometimes find that even products and approaches with studies behind them carry more risks than benefits. For these reasons, many experts maintain a skeptical eye. One University of Alabama professor made quite a few headlines earlier this year by calling most weight loss aids a waste of money, including some celebrities swear by.

I have personally experienced many wonderful anti-aging benefits with cleansing tea detox. The skin starts looking healthier as it gets all the nutrition it needs at the collagen level. All of the vitamins and minerals repair and restore the skin’s healthy glow. My hair is also looking shinier. Since the antioxidants fight free radical damage, you are unknowingly fighting many harmful age-related diseases as well.
You probably think that vegetable juice is just a way to get more veggies in your diet, right? That's true, but veggie juice has also been shown to fill you up. In fact, when people drank vegetable juice before a meal, they ended up eating 135 fewer calories. Now that's some appetite suppression! Just be sure to drink the low-sodium varieties, which are less likely to make you bloat.
