Weight Loss Tips and Strategies

  • Drink 3-4 liters of water throughout the day, everyday. Drink a glass of water right before a meal to help you feel fuller.
  • Calories that you drink count. Alcohol, soda, juices, energy drinks, iced tea, lemonade, sports drinks and cream in coffee can tilt the scale in the wrong direction. Water is the only drink that we need to have, so develop a healthy habit and simply choose water.
  • Say yes! It’s not about saying NO to food, it’s about saying YES to your health and well-being.
  • Eat less without feeling denied. Using a smaller plate gives the visual signal that you already have more while a small portion served on a large plate can leave you craving more food.
  • Portion control is important to get the correct amount of nutrients without overeating.
  • Count calories. Measure food (at least initially) to guarantee portion control and know how much is necessary for your body.
  • Keep a food journal and be accountable for it. Tell the truth! Seeing what you eat will help you stay on track and choose healthier, more nutritious foods.
  • Little things add up. Avoid a taste of this, a bite, lick or sip of that.
  • Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, don’t skip it!
