What I’m eating instead to lose weight fast

Trading in steaks and pork chops for fish can significantly impact your health and waistline, according to my nutritionist, Keri Gans. She says that fish, including shellfish, is high in protein, low in fat and calories, and rich in heart-protecting omega-3 fatty acids. And it's yummy!

It's best to grill, bake, or broil fish with seasonings for added flavor. My favorites are garlic, chili powder, and a squeeze of lemon juice. You should avoid frying fish, cooking it in butter, or adding anything creamy.

Keri says health experts recommend eating seafood twice a week. So grab a tuna sandwich for lunch one day and grill tilapia for dinner at night.

For portion size, stick to three ounces for fatty fish, like salmon and tuna, and four ounces for white fish, like tilapia, sole, or shellfish. And if you like sushi, be sure to steer away from fried tempura!

Since I turned 40 it has been increasing harder to lose weight. I have tried every diet, watch what I ate etc., nothing worked. One day my husband came home and told me about this system, I thought why not. Three months later I lost 34 pounds and 3 sizes. Now that I’m on the maintenance part of the system I lost a total of 38 pounds and now down 4 sizes…. This system works. It really had me change my eating habits. I have learned valuable nutritional information to ensure I keep the weight off and look great. Three months later I lost 34 pounds and 3 sizes, just following this system: https://leanbellybreakthrough1.club
