Day 2: Water Log

All of our RD experts agree: H2O is crucial.

“Water is so important when trying to lose weight since it helps to you feel full between meals,” says Amy Shapiro, RD, founder of Real Nutrition NYC in New York City.

Here’s a simple hydration rule of thumb: Shoot to consume half as many ounces of water as your total body weight in pounds.

(So if you weigh 180, sip on 90 ounces of water each day.)

Day 3: Stop Counting Calories—Yes, really!

It’s just as important and beneficial (if not more so) to focus on diet quality rather than quantity, says a 2018 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Focus on real foods rather than a strict number of calories and you’re more likely to stay slim over the long term.

Shapiro recommends these shedding superfoods, in particular:

Celery, cucumber, and asparagus: “All are natural diuretics, so they will also help to remove fluid from the body.”
Spinach: “It’s filling since the leafy greens are very high in fiber.”

Fish or chicken breast: “The ample amount of protein keeps the body busy breaking it down so you stay full longer.”
Olive oil: “Fat helps food taste better and tames your appetite.”
