If you’ve watched more weight loss workouts than you’d like to admit or eaten grapefruit for breakfast lunch or dinner, then read on to learn tips for successful weight loss.  

 

Do you: 

  • Eat too many refined grains (white bread or rice)? 

  • Eat big portions? 

  • Skip meals? 

  • Eat a lot of meals away from home? 

  • Graze all day on high-calorie snacks? 

  • Frequently drink high-calorie coffee drinks, juice drinks or regular soda? 

  • Consume too much alcohol? 

  • Eat for emotional reasons? 

  • Eat in front of the screen like your phone or computer? 

 

Changes are coming 

  • OK, let’s get real. Pick at least one habit from above and work on changing this habit. For example, try limiting sweets and treats to only 200 calories a day, cutting out fried foods or only eating out once per week. 

  • Replace the old habit with a new lower calorie habit, such as trying new fruits or vegetables or a new type of exercise class. 

 

On track 

  • Self-monitor. You can do it. Studies show that people who self-monitor their meals lose more weight and keep it off.  

  • Weigh yourself. The most successful “losers” tend to weigh themselves about once a week.
