2. Munch on Veggies
Vegetables are the absolute best thing to eat for rapid weight loss. They’re low calorie and full of vital nutrients needed to burn off excess calories. Not only are they a better food choice than other snacking options, but they can be convenient. It’s just as easy to grab some carrots as it is to grab potato chips.
3. Eat Smaller Portions
Not only will you save time by splitting up your portions, but it’s also healthier to eat more frequently. You may be wondering how eating more often saves time. Well 2 – 3 of those meals will be simple healthy snacks. They can fit in your schedule while you watch a movie or check your e-mail.

Frozen veggies, unlike canned veggies, still hold on to many of the vital nutrients. They are easy and quick to prepare and can usually be cooked in the bag. In addition to being convenient, they will also save you money. No more throwing out the veggies that have gone bad.
5. Use Healthy Salad Dressings
Salad dressings can be very deceptive. There are a lot of calories packed into salad dressings. A little bit can go a long way. To get moving in the right direction, try to avoid cream based dressings and opt for balsamic vinaigrette.
6. Pre-Make Your Food
By making your food in advance you accomplish two very important parts of losing weight while saving time. First, you are going to spend less time making food. Second, you will be less likely to deviate from your diet because you will have an easier time controlling your cravings.
7. Eat More Carbs
