You want to lose weight quickly but don't have the time to prepare elaborate meals. Low-carb diets provide quick weight loss because foods with zero to few carbs allow the body to burn fat stored in the belly, stomach and thighs instead of the sugars found in carbohydrates. Do not attempt to only eat meals with zero carbs, however. Carbohydrates serve an important role in body metabolism, and dietitians recommend low-carb diets over no-carb diets.
Roasted Broccoli With Lemon
Roast the broccoli because it concentrates the flavors. Bake the broccoli on a baking sheet at 450 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Squeeze lemon on it for added flavor.
Pre-cooked Chicken or Turkey and Cheese
Cook a whole chicken or turkey on a free evening. Store the meat in small containers in the freezer, keeping a couple of day's supply in the refrigerator. For a quick lunch, eat a helping of the stored meat with a couple of cheese and celery sticks.
Mix a can of tuna with boiled eggs, onions and low-fat mayonnaise, and eat it out of a bowl. Add bacon bits for more flavor without adding carbohydrates.
Fish cooks quickly and provides an excellent source of protein, with low fat. Eat alongside broiled broccoli for a dinner meal.
Crock Pot Meat
Place a roast or other favorite meat in a Crock-Pot. Add water, and put on low to cook through the day. It will be ready to eat for dinner, along with a light salad.
