Since 2018, I’ve lost 100 pounds and gotten into the best mental and physical shape of my life. I did so without giving up my favorite foods or making myself miserable by following these 3 simple tips:
Tip #1: Make Slightly Better Choices Each Time You Eat.
Feel like pizza? Great! Choose a thin crust, or limit yourself to 2 slices instead of 3-4. Want ice cream? Find a lower-calorie ice cream treat that you love. I found a 60-calorie ice cream sandwich that makes me just as happy as eating a whole pint.
Tip #2: Find A Way To Move Your Body That You Find Fun!
Hate the gym? Then don’t go to the gym. You’re not going to be able to stick to something long-term if you don’t enjoy it. Instead, find a way to move your body that you look forward to each day. Once you do, getting exercise will become one of your favorite parts of your daily routine.
Tip #3: Drink More Water.
Sometimes when you think you are hungry, you’re actually just thirsty. I now drink a large glass of water 20 minutes before eating, and as a result, I end up eating much less than I used to. I can’t believe how much better I feel and how much healthier my skin is now that I am well-hydrated. I start each day with two large glasses of water before my coffee. I want my coffee badly, so getting through that water quickly is easy.
Seem simple? That’s because it is! Using these 3 tips, I was able to easily lose one pound each week and stick with it over time. Over the course of 100 weeks, I lost 100 pounds.
I hope these simple tips help you as much as they helped me!
