Eat within an hour of waking and every 3-4 hours thereafter
Eat a protein and carbohydrate every time you eat
Eat just enough to keep you satiated for 3-4 hours. If you are gaining weight you are eating too much at each meal time
Eat whole, real food. Get all the junk and processed food out of your house! Avoid the sweets and junk at the office – just say no!
Do not drink your calories – drink water, water and more water
Move your body every single day – do something everyday to burn calories. As you get stronger and more active, incorporate a strength training routine and increase the intensity of your activity to keep challenging yourself.
Remember, everything in moderation – enjoy a nice glass of wine, drink that cocktail, get some fried goodies in your belly and splurge on dessert from time to time
Eat vegetables at least 3 times a day – half your dinner plate should be veggies!
Know what you are putting in your mouth. As you become more aware of what you are eating you will avoid the junk. If you cook at home, you can get rid of all the junk and know exactly what you are eating.
Be nice to yourself, give yourself and break and realize that it is FUN to be healthy and well.
It aint quick and it will take some getting used to, but you will keep the weight off and change your life for the better. Now that is sexy!
