“If I had to pick one food for weight loss, I would choose oatmeal. It’s a whole grain, high-fiber carbohydrate that sticks your ribs, so it keeps you full and satisfied. Eating it also leads to a slow rise in blood sugar, which has been shown to keep insulin levels from spiking, leading to less fat storage. The key with oatmeal is how to make it so it’s not a calorie bomb. I recommend making it with nonfat milk in place of water, stirring in chopped raw nuts or natural nut butter, and topping with fresh or frozen fruits. If you need some added sweetness, a drizzle of maple syrup should do it. — Jessica Fishman Levinson, MS, RDN, CDN, culinary-nutrition consultant and founder of Nutritioulicious

Recommended Range for Fat Loss: The balance of the calories remaining after protein and fat are factored will go towards carbohydrates. This is calculated by subtracting the calories from protein (grams of protein * 4cal/gram), the calories from fat (grams of fat * 9cal/gram), from your recommended daily calories. Take this value in calories and divide it by 4 to yield the number of grams of carbohydrates per day.

You’ll feel fuller for longer and better curb your appetite until the next meal.
Generally speaking, consuming 20-30% of your calories from fat is a great place to start. You might consume different amounts each day. However, over a period of weeks/months – they should average out.
Do exercise, and do it double-time. You’ll probably need to exercise twice as much to meet your goals. Better pick a couple exercises that you really like, because chances are you’ll be doing a lot of them in order to burn 10 pounds in a week.
Get involved in a sport. The great part about sports is that they’re competitive. Competition makes us push ourselves harder than we would have by ourselves, for the most part. You may be thinking: I’m not good at any sports, or I’m not comfortable doing any sports. Just remember that people respect other who try hard and who respect themselves. If you think doing soccer, basketball, or swimming would be fun and keep you engaged, then go for it. Let your competitive streak burn the calories for you.

“When clients come to me, many of them have been through the diet wringer. They’ve tried every fad and gimmick and, of course, they’ve failed to maintain long-term success. The key to weight loss is to never feel like you’re on a diet, because diets don’t work. If you feel deprived, you will never make it past a few weeks. The only way to achieve long-term weight loss is to learn to appreciate food as fuel and slowly replaced processed food that cannot properly energize the body with real food that can. After a while this will become second nature and won’t feel like a daily struggle.” — Laura Burak, MS, RD, CDN
