Top 10 diets for quick weight loss

1.    Low-Carb Diet

The low-carb diet focuses on low carbohydrate content foods and promises to lose weight quickly.

This diet involves eating foods that are low in carbs and fats but rich in minerals and vitamins such as broccoli, spinach, tomatoes, herbs, strawberries, chicken breast, sea bass, milk, etc.

A low-carb diet presumes that excessive carbohydrate consumption can cause insulin levels to become highly unbalanced, which in turn may lead to excess weight gain.

With this diet approach, 10 percent of your daily calorie intake comes from carbohydrates, 60 percent comes from fat, and 30 percent from protein. You should consume lean proteins and healthy mono and poly-unsaturated fats, such as olive oil, flax oil, fish oil, nuts, seeds, and peanut butter.

5.      Big Bowl salad

The idea behind these salads, make them so big they are hard to finish! Often I can only eat ½ a big bowl salad, I save the other half for a “free” snack. By using part of your lunch as a afternoon snack, or half your breakfast as a mid morning snack you eat fewer calories during this detox cleanse. You’re not adding calories but just spreading them out.

6.      Detox Meal Recipes

These detox meals are 30% lean protein and 70% vegetables, so if you have a favorite chicken recipe, use it in lieu of one of these recipes, enjoy it with some grilled veggies or a salad. Just do your best to skip bread, pastas and sugar this week. I’m not against carbs, but for maximum results it’s good to avoid flour or sugar based carbs on this cleanse diet week.

 

Chicken Fajita Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients:

1 teaspoon olive oil

4 oz chicken breast cut into thin strips

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon dried or fresh chopped oregano

1 teaspoon garlic powder

2 bell peppers cut into thin strips

1 onion cut into thin rings

1 jalapeno, all seeds and ribs removed, thinly sliced (optional)

4 large butter lettuce or romaine lettuce leaves

In a skillet heat the olive oil on medium heat, add in the chicken and brown on all sides for about 5 minutes. To the browned chicken add chili powder, oregano and garlic powder and toss together until the chicken strips are all coated.

Add the bell peppers, onion and jalapeno to the skillet and cook until soft, about 10-15 minutes.

Scoop into the lettuce leaves and serve hot.

 

Vegetarian (or turkey) Chili

This chili can be made vegetarian, or with ground turkey or leftover shredded chicken. To add ground turkey, brown it with the onions, to use leftover chicken, add it in with the tomatoes.

You can also make this in a crockpot, once the onions and bell peppers are soft, move to the crockpot and continue the rest of the recipe in the crockpot. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 7. Freeze the leftovers in individual containers, this chili is great over an omelet or atop a baked potato.

Ingredients:

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 yellow onion, chopped fine

2 red bell peppers, chopped fine

2 cloves garlic, chopped fine

1 jalapeno seeds and ribs removed, chopped fine

3 tablespoons chili powder

1 teaspoon cumin

2 bay leafs

28 oz can of chopped or crushed tomatoes

15 oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed

15 oz can of kidney beans, drained and rinsed

1/2 cup frozen corn kernels

Greek yogurt (optional topping)

Chopped red onion (optional topping)

Hot sauce (optional topping)

 

In a large sauce pot heat the oil on medium. Add in the onion, bell peppers, garlic and jalapeno, cook for 10-15 minutes until the veggies are soft and most of the onions transparent.

Add in the chili, cumin and bay leafs, toss with veggies and cook about a minute until you can smell the spices, top with the crushed tomatoes and stir. Cook for 1-3 hours on low, the longer you cook it the better the flavors will be. (see recipe description for crock pot directions)

10 minutes before you serve the chili add in the beans and the corn and stir together.
