7. Ditch the dressing and other salad toppings
Salads with loads of leafy greens are marvelously nutritious and low-cal, unless you cover them in salad dressing and croutons. One of the fastest ways to lose weight is to have as much salad as you can, only substitute the dressing with some vinegar, olive oil or lemon juice. Your body will be spending more energy on digesting these salads than it will be getting out of them, so you'll be shedding pounds like never before if you start eating a couple of salads without traditional dressings every day.
