Quick tips

1. Eat lots of produce

Eat 5 or more portions of produce daily. Green vegetables are low in calories, and rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals :Collard Greens, Spinach, Swiss Chard, Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli, Cabbage.

2. Drink lots of water

Sweetened drinks are not low in calories. Before eating a large meal , or when you feel hungry, practice drinking water a 1/2 hour prior to eating. The mind commonly mistakes thirst for hunger. This will allow you to feel more full, and eat less.

3. Don't be inactive!

Instead of sitting on the couch and watching TV, put on your tennis shoes and go for a walk with the dogs, ride bikes with a loved one, or take a dance/martial arts class with your partner! If there is a program on television that you just can't miss, march in place while watching it or do jumping jacks during the commercials. Pace while you talk on the phone, or blast your favorite CD, and dance in the mirror.

4. It's the little things that matter!

Instead of eating one whole piece of your favorite chocolate cake, eat half a piece! This will reduce the amount of calories you intake, and still allow your taste buds to tingle in satisfaction. Go for healthier snacks, like Nutella or hummus on pretzels.

Switch to " reduced fat" , " low fat", "light" and "fat free" products. Generally, these versions of certain foods and condiments taste exactly the same as the regular. Try to skip high calorie condiments all together, and find condiment re-placers, such as avocado instead of mayo!

5. A little excerice won't kill you!

Every Time you go to the grocery store, park your car in the farthest parking space. A little walking isn't so bad, and burns calories. If you live in a apartment complex or development, instead of driving to the mail-boxes or trash disposal, walk. This saves gas, and burns fat. Instead of laying out on a hot summer day, start a volleyball match or go for a swim!

6. Stay committed!

Schedule a certain time to walk every day, and stick with it. Stay consistent in eating healthy snacks, and limiting portions. Keeping your self-esteem healthy will also help with losing weight! Surround yourself with those who love and support you. Remember to love yourself and never criticize your image. Good luck!
