1) Eat almonds and other nuts
Nuts are an excellent source of fiber, protein, and healthy fats, including Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, and have been proven to be a useful addition to a weight loss diet. For a long time, people avoided nuts because of the fat content, but it is precisely that fat content that helps you lose weight, really. Numerous studies have shown that because nuts do such an excellent job at satiating your hunger, you are less prone to overeating. Those who add nuts to their menu have been proven to be less likely to go off of their diet.
There was also a study dealing specifically with almonds that showed that eating around 30 almonds a day led to a reduction in abdominal covering fat.
