"Determination today leads to sucess tomorrow"

Here are some smart tips that have helped me with my weight loss.
  •  Plan your grocery shopping.
  •  If you know you have a busy day, plan ahead
  •   If you’re headed to a party, munch on a healthy snack first.
  •  Brush your teeth after every
 meal. This will send a clear signal to your brain that the meal is over.
  •  Make sure to get enough sleep. Being over tired ca be a trigger for snacking and over eating.
  • Eat until you feel satisfied not until you feel stuffed
  •  Use Vegetable and Chicken broth instead of butter or oil.
  •  Don’t multitask while you eat. Pay attention and enjoy the food you take in.
  • When sitting down at a restaurant start the meal with a glass of water.
  • Wait  15 minutes to eat something you think you want to eat. If you still thinkinng about it 15 minutes later, you really want it, other wise it was a passinng urge.
