Brown rice is nothing but rice with its outer husk intact. This husk is a good source of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals. By consuming controlled amounts of brown rice with veggies and protein, you can get an extra dose of nutrients. These will help cleanse your colon and improve digestion. As a result, your metabolic rate will increase, and you will lose weight without feeling hungry all the time. Korean scientists found that consuming brown rice regularly led to decreased waist circumference in type 2 diabetes patients.

Soak brown rice in water 30 minutes before cooking it. Have it with 3-4 different grilled or blanched vegetables and a source of protein to have a balanced lunch.

Shoo, low-fat milk! Gone are the days of low-fat or fancy “slim” milk. New scientific evidence suggests that full-fat milk can aid weight loss. Scientists at the University of California, San Francisco conducted an experiment and found that full-fat milk and dairy consumers were on the lower side of the obesity scale. They have hypothesized that the butyric acid present in milk helps lower inflammation and inflammation-related fat gain. Full-fat milk also increases insulin sensitivity and metabolism.
How To Consume
Consume pasteurized full-fat milk with oats, in a smoothie bowl, or just drink a cup of it in the morning or before bed.
