Don’t Skip Breakfast

“Eat breakfast. It’ll energize you for the day and keep your diet in check.”

Nibble, Don’t Gobble

“Use the three-bite rule with dessert: Have three small bites and put your fork down.”

Keep the Burn Going

“During your workout, rest no more than 30 seconds between exercises. This will dramatically bump your calorie burn.”

 

Avoid Late-night Snacks

“Finish eating three hours before bedtime. Your metabolism slows down when you sleep so you shift from fat burning to fat storage.”

Don’t Forget the Dumbbells

“Increase the strength component of your workout. Adding lean muscle to your body not only tones, it also increases your metabolism.”

Question Your Cravings

“Before you eat, ask yourself, ‘Am I hungry?’ Unless a craving comes from hunger, eating won’t satisfy it.”

Don’t Skimp On Sleep

“Get six to eight hours of sleep a night. Without it, the appetite hormone ghrelin increases, which could result in weight gain. And schedule at least two three-minute breaks during the day to practice deep-breathing exercises. It will reduce the stress hormone control.

Make Your Own Lunch

Brown-bag it. According to a 2012 study in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, dieters who eat out for lunch even once a week lose 5 fewer pounds on average.

Train Your Brain

“Be specific about your weight-loss goal. The brain detects a difference between where you are and where you want to be, so when you’re specific, your brain throws resources like willpower at it.”

Start With Greens

“Eat in the right order. Eat vegetables first to naturally have more of them and ultimately eat fewer calories.”

Use Tried-And-True Methods

Take your cue from dieters on the National Weight Control Registry who’ve lost 66 pounds (on average) and kept it off:

–75 percent weigh themselves at least once a week

–78 percent are breakfast eaters

–62 percent limit TV to less than 10 hours a week

Snack Away

“Eat every three to four hours so you’ll be equipped to say no to temptations.”

Be Goal-Oriented

“Set a tangible goal with a firm deadline — for example, schedule an ‘after’ photo shoot. It will help you stay motivated.”

Steel Yourself

“Expect some discomfort. You’re leaving your comfort zone of old eating habits. Knowing that it can be uncomfortable will help you get through it.”

Schedule a Cheat Day

“Resist cravings by postponing indulging to a future day when you’re free to eat whatever you want.”

Take Notes

Keep a food journal. Women who do lose six pounds more on average, according to a 2012 study in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Use Your Arms

“When you are doing a treadmill workout, add arm exercises with light weights to increase your calorie burn.”

Never Shop Hungry

Always grocery-shop on a full stomach with a written list and a cart (heavy baskets trigger instant-gratification decisions, research shows).

Say No to Soda

“Put the soda down [and] step away. Regular soda drinking may make muscles less likely to burn fat

Fill Up On Fiber and Protein

“Enjoy so many no starchy vegetables, nuts, seeds, and lean proteins that you’re too full for anything else.”

p

Skip the Salt and Fizz

“Cut sodium and carbonation! Carbonation can bloat your stomach, making it appear distended for hours or even days! Sodium holds onto fluid.”

Use the Apple Test

“If you’re not hungry enough to eat an apple, you’re not hungry.”

Have a Carb-Free Afternoon

“No carbs after lunch is one of the hardest (rules) to follow. But if you follow this rule YOU WILL lose weight.”

Do the Math

“Add a zero to your weight and use that to figure how many calories you should have if you’re moderately active. If you weigh 140pounds, aim to eat 1,400 calories.”

Walk It Off

“Take a 15-minute walk after each meal to burn a quick 100 calories.”
