Fat loss starts with adequate protein. Over-consume protein, and minimize everything else. This is the one piece of advice I get the most resistance. If you can have some faith and try it, you’ll see how much easier it makes losing weight and achieveing a more youthful body.
It’s one of the reason’s I like Cordain’s Paleo Diet. Cordain’s research and writings indicate that a contemporary diet that precisely mimics hunter-gatherer diets is “obviously impossible, as most of us don’t have unlimited access to wild game and plant foods.” However, Cordain’s studies indicate that “our health, well being and mental state improve, and we can emulate Ishi’s personality, psychological state and health” by consuming fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats and seafood, as documented in his book The Paleo Diet. Dr. Cordain’s dietary recommendations in The Paleo Diet include avoiding processed foods, grains, refined sugars, refined vegetable oils, and salted foods.
