5. Eat every 4-6 hours

Not huge meals every 4-6 hours, but smaller portions every 4 hours or so will help to keep the blood sugar on a more even level so that you don’t binge eat. Eat whole, unprocessed, quality foods as often as possible combined with some sort of strength training exercise to help with building up the lean muscle tissue. Did you know that fat burns 70 times less calories than muscle?! But you must eat to develop and sustain muscle!

6. Take a Probiotic

According to a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, probiotics could help you lose weight (in addition to providing nutrients that help you stay healthy). By the end of this study, they found that the group that had taken the probiotics lost 60% more weight than the group that was given a placebo, and continued to lose 1.8 more pounds on average in the maintenance portion of the study. In addition, the probiotic group had less of the intestinal bacteria related to obesity in their systems.

In addition to aiding in weight loss, probiotics assist in improving nutrient uptake and balancing the effects of bad flora in your intestine.
