Losing weight doesn't have to be a struggle--there are tons of ways to lose those excess pounds. Best of all, most of them are easy to incorporate into your daily routine, like this one from celebrity nutritionist Paula Simpson: Eat your proteins and starches separately. Called food combining, it's a method that involves eating your proteins in one meal and your starches in another, in order to aid in optimum digestion. Many who follow it report more energy, significant weight loss and a decrease in indigestion.
Add a scoop of this slimming powder to a glass of water right before you eat to naturally amp up your metabolism. It features rice protein, probiotics, linoleic acid and seaweed extract to control your appetite, promote lean muscle mass, minimize bloating and reduce sugar and fat absorption.

It will restore your body's balance, give you more energy and, yes, help you lose some of those stubborn extra pounds you've been trying to shed for years.
When it comes to your meals, celebrity fitness guru David Kirsch says you need to go back to basics. "Follow the ABC's of nutrition: No alcohol, bread, starchy carbs & coffee, dairy or extra sweets. This will help you to lean down and de-bloat," he says. "Eat 5 small meals a day full of lean protein, healthy carbs like beans and quinoa, and lots of vegetables"

"Many of us suffer from digestive issues that make us feel bloated and look two waist sizes bigger than we actually are," says Simpson. To prevent this bloat-induced weight gain, she recommends incorporating live active cultures and probiotics (aka good bacteria) in your diet to help support a healthy digestive system. Add yogurt to your morning meal, or look for supplements that include lactobacillus acidophilus, saccharomyces, or bifidobacteria.
