Like alcohol. According to registered dietician Keri Glassman, going dry for one month can result in a 3-pound weight loss.
Then, give up fried foods – like chips and fries – for a month, and you’ll drop up to 5 pounds. Plus, because fried foods are harder to digest, you’ll also lose bloat and heartburn.
Finally, if you only want to give up one thing to lose weight: Ditch your morning muffin. After a month you’ll be down 3 pounds. Give up cookies, too, and you’ll bring that total to 5 pounds lost.
