May, 2009 - "Drop 5 Lbs. In A Week"

Ban White Bread and Pasta
Cutting out all white grain products-such as white rice, spaghetti, sandwich rolls- will instantly slim you down because the simple carbs in these foods cause bloating, especially around your belly. "Simple carbohydrates wreak havoc on your weight because they're digested very quickly, leaving you hungry and more likely to overeat later," says Jana Klauer, MD, author of The Park Avenue Nutritionist’s Plan.

To go a step further, instead of replacing them with healthier yet still bloat-triggering whole-grain bread products, substitute vegetables for the week.  This way, a chicken sandwich becomes chicken salad, and chips and dip turn into carrots and dip.  The complex carbs from vegetables are digested more slowly, so you remain full longer.  And because veggies are mostly water, they also help flush out excess water weight. 

Drink Coffee an Hour Before Working Out
This is the one exception to the stick-to-water-only rule: Just as a coffee run makes your morning at work more productive, a pre-exercise cup of java with a splash of skim milk (about 11 calories) or black (just 5 calories) will energize your workout, explains Dr. Klauer.  “You’ll burn more calories without realizing you’re pushing yourself harder.”
