10 Top Tips for Weightloss

  1. Eat only when you're hungry
  2. Don't drink calories (no soda, no juice)
  3. Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies per day
  4. Swap reduced fat dairy for full fat (milk and cheese)
  5. Eat whole wheat bread and pasta instead of white
  6. Keep a food journal and count calories at least for a week, so that you can assess where you are at and make the necessary changes
  7. Choose exercise you enjoy! The best exercise for weight loss is whatever you enjoy enough to actually get up and do it.
  8. Be mindful when eating. Avoid things like eating in front of the television.
  9. Make healthy eating fun by trying new recipes, experimenting with spices you rarely use, or bringing home the weird vegetable you don't recognize at the grocery store.
  10. Give yourself a break. Allow yourself a slice of cake for a birthday, and an occasional treat. If you have a bad day where you eat nothing but chocolate, forgive yourself and try again the next day. It's a marathon, not a sprint. It's more important to be building lifelong healthy habits that it is to be perfect.
