Incorporating these small lifestyle changes can make a big difference in your weight-loss goals.
Have a Plan
Confronting our food-centric world without a plan is a recipe for diet disaster. Temptation really is everywhere. But losing weight doesn’t have feel like work—or like a punishment.
Every Sunday, take 15 minutes to plan what you’ll eat for dinner in the coming week, and then hit the grocery store with a list. If you’ve got what you need to make dinner each night, you’re less likely to reach for other convenience foods. Eating fresh foods like fruits, vegetables, lean meats and fat free dairy options from our program means you’re a lot less likely to overeat or cheat.
Eat Every 4 Hours
Eating regularly both fuels your metabolism and makes it less likely that you’ll be ravenous at mealtimes and overeat. To get the most mileage from your snacks, eat them when you’re hungriest—namely 3 to 4 hours after your last meal.
Cut Out the Soda
Our program allows you to drink diet soda but if you really want to drop weight quickly then cut them out of your diet and only stick to water, coffee and tea.
Stop Eating Two Hours Before Bedtime
Eating just before bedtime, causes a calorie pile-up! Most of us end up making unhealthy food choices, and what’s more, our bodies won’t efficiently burn the calories while we sleep.
Eat a healthy breakfast
Just as snacking helps
prevent overeating later, so does eating breakfast first thing in the morning.
Eggs are a great breakfast and keep you feeling full for a while.
Eat Protein Three Times a Day
Every meal should include protein, which is equivalent to a portion of chicken or meat that’s the size of a deck of cards or 2 small eggs, for example. Your body needs protein to promote lean muscle mass. Excess is stored as energy or fat, instead being used to feed muscles.
