Nutritionist Sally O’Neil has revealed that it doesn’t matter what diet you follow as long as it’s high protein, high fiber and minimally ultra-processed, and there are fewer calories going in than outgoing.
“Certain food-related factors influence your hunger, your energy expenditure, your feeling of satiety.”
Nutritionist Reveals Her Favorite Diet Tips For Weight Loss
- Make sure you stay low calorie, i.e. you consume fewer calories than you burn
- Minimize ultra-processed foods that “don’t fill you up”
- Increase your protein intake
- Increase your fiber intake
People should minimize ultra-processed foods, increase protein and increase fiber for best results, she explained in the Instagram reel.
The exasperated nutritionist said people would have ‘no idea’ how often people sued her for the ‘perfect’ weight loss diet.
When in reality, “it all comes down to science”.
The first tip is to minimize ultra-processed foods that “make you eat more.”
“They don’t fill you up, there’s hardly any fiber,” she explained. “There are very few micronutrients and most of the time they don’t fill you up.”
The second thing she recommends is to “increase protein intake.”
“Having a high volume of protein in your diet is really helpful because it has a high thermic effect,” she said.
This means that it is very filling and you feel full. it also helps preserve muscle when you are in a calorie deficit.
“Nobody ever said, ‘OMG last night I ate ten steaks,'” she joked.

The key thing to understand is that you need to burn more calories than you consume, she said.
Third is increasing fiber, which she says is “super important” for weight loss.
“It helps curb cravings,” she said.
“And as a bonus, it actually helps your microgut,” she added.
“No matter what diet you’re on, just focus on these three things and make sure your calorie intake is lower than your calorie intake,” she says.
And her followers were impressed – thanking her for the informative reel.
‘So simple, isn’t it? We need to stop listening to white noise and get back to basics,” one woman said.
“Sound and sound advice as always,” said another.
“Thank you for breaking this down – so easy to understand,” added a third.
