Make sure you're covering your bases in the nutrition department. Read labels and keep track of your protein, carb, and calorie intake. Make sure to get plenty of protein to lower hunger, increase your metabolism, and maintain lean tissue. Steam your food or sauté in a little avocado oil. To add flavor, use vinegars, herbs, and spices instead of fatty, sugary sauces. When you dine out, ask to have your food grilled, steamed, or broiled instead of fried.
