Hot sauce is versatile and tastes great so you can add that as well if you are not a fan of raw or cooked peppers.
Do NOT skip meals
When you wish to skip a meal, just drink one of weight loss smoothies instead. Smoothies are healthy and nutritious, so your body will say thank you. And skipping meals only slows down your metabolism and while you may lose a pound or two initially, your metabolism will quickly catch on and start to slow down to fit your eating schedule.
