It seems everywhere we turn, something makes or keeps us heavier than we should be. Food is obviously a biggie: We consume more than we used to, and today’s overly processed foods often trick our bodies into craving seconds and thirds. Our diets also tend to fall short of certain healthy nutrients, like calcium and vitamin C, which studies have shown help promote weight loss.
Beyond what and how we eat, we also have to do battle with sneaky saboteurs in our daily environment that set the stage for fat accumulation. As part of The Digest Diet, our new breakthrough weight-loss plan, we combed through the latest studies to find which foods help release fat-and also, which habits help shed fat. These simple tips are easy to adapt, and might help reverse the scale’s upward climb.
