10 Tips for Lasting Weight Loss

  1. Skip the diet. Just eat healthy & make better choices.
  2. Find a workout (or trainer) you love. It will make exercising each day less of a drag.
  3. Find a “wind down” or “stress reliever” routine to do at the end of each day. Set a time where you do it every night, then get in bed right after. Sleeping more is major.
  4. Know that it’s okay to be a little hungry.
  5. When you eat, focus ONLY on eating. Overeating happens when you’re distracted.
  6. Protein, Produce, Plant-based fats (avocados, nuts, plant oils).
  7. The answer is always water. Hungry? Water. Headache? Water. Hungover? Water.
  8. Drink at least 8oz of water when you first wakeup.
  9. No eating 2.5 to 3 hours before bed.
  10. Never grocery shop on an empty stomach & always have a prepared grocery list before shopping. Sticking to your list will help you stay away from junk food & impulse buys.

Anyone that knows me knows that I’m mildly obsessed with sweet stuff. I literally crave it ALL the time.

Here are some of mine just to share with you all 🙂
