How to Lose Up to 8 Pounds in One Month
It. Is. TIME!
2018 is finally HERE, ladies and gents, which means it's time to get the New Year's Resolutions going!
And if yours happens to be dropping a few pounds, we've got your back!
Keri Glassman, dietician and founder of The Nutritious Life, dropped by with three weight-loss plans — tailored to the amount of time you have to get to your goal.
Whether you have a month, a week or even just 24 hours to get in shape, we've got the diet plan for you!
But here, we're focusing on your one-month diet plan.
If You Have One Month to Lose Weight
1. Eat whole and real!
Start by cutting out processed and packaged foods, alcohol, added sugar and refined carbs as much as possible. Your kitchen should be stocked with foods like veggies, fruit, nuts, nut butter, eggs, avocado, faro, brown rice, olive oil, salmon and grass-fed beef.
2. Treat every meal like a Monday morning.
If you slip up on one meal, this doesn’t mean that the whole day has gone down the drain. Treat every opportunity to eat as an individual one.
3. Follow this formula:
Protein + veggies + healthy fat = weight loss. Don't forget it!
4. Protein pack your morning.
This prevents overeating in the afternoon.
5. Eat greens twice a day.
You can get them from salads, smoothies, soup or eggs.
6. Take a probiotic and add in fermented foods 1x per day.
Getting into the habit of having a full glass of water with a probiotic every morning will seriously help your gut health.
7. Skip the sugary drinks!
Drink water, tea, a little coffee and that’s it!
Estimated weight loss? Two pounds per week -- which means up to 8 pounds for the month!

If You Have One Week to Lose Weight
If you're trying to lose weight in under a week — you know, you wake up on Monday and realize you have a wedding on Saturday 😱 — Keri says to mix green tea (for your daily dose of caffeine while boosting your metabolism!), berries, peanut butter and protein.

If You Have One Day to Lose Weight
If you have just 24 hours to be able to zip into that dress, Keri says to start your day off right — with a mix of water, lemon and ginger. After that, you're going to turn to green tea, too — and milk thistle (which is said to lower both cholesterol and blood sugar levels!).
