  • Work out, eat right, no carbs (bad carbs that is), no sugar, no soda, cut back on your salt, and drink water.

  • Take baby steps with whatever eating plan you choose so you are set up for lasting lifestyle changes, drink half your body weight in ounces each day (100 lbs=50 oz), stay active, and I take Juice Plus to be sure I'm getting the nutrients my body needs. Lean protein and produce will never let you down.

  • 1. Watch portion size, but find foods you can enjoy so you can keep it up for the rest of your life. You'll want eating habits that even after you're done losing weight, you can still maintain a healthy lifestyle.
    2. Find exercise you love to do. You don't have to hate it. Get out and do a little each day.

  • use an online calculator to figure out how many calories you need to eat to lose weight.
    then eat as clean as possible.
    eat everything as close to nature as possible.

    now for the important part WEIGH YOUR FOOD AND TRACK CALORIES.
    if you guess, you won't lose.
    you can essentially eat anything you want .. as long as you have the calories. you learn to eat better and get the most food for your alloted calories.

    drink lots of water.
    have 30 grams of protein within 3 hours of waking up in the morning with less than 10 grams of net carbs.
