We get it. You just need to shed those five stubborn pounds to button those cute little shorts for the summer but you don’t want to give up your favorite foods either. We’ve got good news — experts say making six small changes to your day is one of the best ways to lose those pesky five!
1. Peanut Butter
Buy natural peanut butter and discard the oil sitting on top. Each serving of natural peanut butter will have 20 fewer calories and 2 to 3 fewer grams of fat than their traditional supermarket brands. It’s a small change that’ll add up to a couple of pounds per year.
2. Befriend Fibre
Skimping on fiber will make you gain weight. Research have found that women who doubled their daily fiber intake from 12 to 24 grams absorb 90 calories less per day. Increasing your fibre intake means that you could lose almost 10 pounds in a year!

Switching your routine up will challenge your muscles in new ways while toning you up and burning extra calories.

So, try healthy snacking at 3pm and 5pm, for example, to keep you full enough for a later dinner at 7:30pm. That way, you’ll be eating late enough to stay full for the rest of the evening
5. Drink Less Alcohol
Downsizing your wine glass from 6 ounces to 4 ounces could potentially help you drop more than 20 pounds a year!
6. Eat Slowly
Do what the French do — eat slowly. Make sure you’re the last one to start eating and also the last person to finish. This way, your brain will have enough time to tell your body that you are full before you start overeating. Eat this way and you’ll take in fewer calories at your meals.
7. Try the Red Tea Detox Program
