Tip #25: Grocery Store Shopping and Weight Loss.

January 25, 2013

30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, and see better results.

If you have kids, you’re going totally get what I’m about to say. Don’t go to the grocery store hungry, and for goodness sakes, don’t take a bunch of hungry kids with you. If you do, you’ll load up on more items you didn’t plan for like: sugary, high carb, high fat, added junk in your cart.

Before you go to the grocery store, have a protein bar, granola bar, protein shake,  hard-boil a couple of eggs, get rid of the yolks – they’re high in fat, and just eat the  egg whites.

Eat healthier. Shop smarter and spend less, take a list with you.

Whatever you do… don’t go to the grocery store hungry.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.

Tip #23: Eating Out – Save Calories and Lose Weight.

January 23, 2013

30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, and see better results.

When you know you’re going to eat out, take your own salad dressing with you. If your goal is to lose weight, stay away from the salad dressing, especially the creamy ones; it’s just tons of extra calories. 

Instead take a healthy option with you. I like the small wishbone spritzers.  You can pop them in your purse.  Or use some olive oil with some balsamic or red wine vinegar.  Add a little salt and pepper. The other thing you can do is use a slice of lemon, a little salt and pepper.

Please stay away from the creamy house dressings. They are just loaded in calories that you don’t want.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.

Tip #21: Cravings and Hunger – Weight Loss Tips.

January 21, 2013

30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, and see better results.

It’s a daily battle for so many people to make healthy choices. Ask yourself: What would a healthy person do? Stop and think. Even then, good intentions can still get put aside like when a sudden craving hit.  What do you do?

 

Cravings that hit you out of the blue typically last 10- 15- or 20-minutes.

Many times, people confuse hunger and cravings for thirst or dehydration.  Keep water handy.

This can also be a sign you need better quality nutrition, and possibly some vitamins.

Have a plan.

  1. Make a to-do list so that when those cravings hit you can keep busy and get past those first 15- to 20-minutes.
  2. Keep a glass of water nearby.  
  3. Distract yourself from the cravings and 9 out of 10 times, you’ll succeed, and those cravings will go away.
  4.  If you’re still hungry or craving, try an apple. If an apple doesn’t sound good you may be bored, tired, angry, or lonely.
  5. Get some rest.
  6. Call a friend, or your weight loss health coach.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.

Tip #20: Heart Health – Going Meatless Once a Week.

January 20, 2013

30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, and see better results.

Have you thought about having a meatless meal, and maybe going a little vegetarian once a week with your family?  

I know if you’re listening to this in cattle country, or you’re a big poultry or fish eater, you’re going think, no, no, I need my protein.

Studies have shown that people who do a meatless meal have better cardiovascular health.

 

So you might want to think of sautéing some veggies in broth, and maybe adding something like tofu. That’s probably a stretch for a lot of you.  So consider a salad, and steamed vegetables.  

Try going meatless  once a week instead of that turkey club, or steak. Your system will be happier. You’ll maybe shed a few more pounds, and feel lighter on your feet the next day.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.

Tip #18: Weekend Rewards to Lose Weight.

January 18, 2013

30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, and see better results.

So many times, we fall into the trap that we’re good all week long, and now we want to reward ourselves with something. And boom – we splurge on the weekend. Whether it’s an adult beverage, or something chocolaty and indulgent… we take the plunge.

The problem with being good all week and then bad on the weekends is as-soon-as Monday hits, you feel guilty that you messed up all those great days. So what happens is is you’re in a vicious cycle.

Get out of your own bad habits of rewarding yourself Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday, with food. Because what you’re doing is you’re setting yourself up for long-term failure.

This weekend instead of indulging in food, do an activity. Grab your kids, grab your significant other, put the dog on a leash, and go for a walk.  Take the family for a fun day. What you really want is long-term success. Don’t let those few hours on the weekend mess up all your good work.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.

Tip #17: Step into a Healthier Life.

January 17, 2013

30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, and see better results.

With winter here, it’s so easy, even for me, to go home, put on my warm snuggly clothes, turn on the TV or computer, sit on the sofa, and call the dog.  I’m done for the night.

So instead of going home and putting on your snuggly clothes, throw on your workout clothes. Even though it’s cold outside, you can bundle up, get out, get some exercise, and move. Then come back in and snuggle with your dog or the one you love.

So get out there, and exercise before you start to settle down for the night.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.

Tip #12: Transform Family Recipes, and Lose Weight.

January 12, 2013

30-tips in 30-days. Get better health, and see better results.

I love traditional family recipes, but I don’t like all the extra calories. So today, I’m going to share with you a couple of easy tricks you can do to make family favorites healthier, and taste great.

3-ticks to save calories, and not skimp on taste:

  1. Use broth for sautéing instead of butter. You can use organic chicken broth, beef broth, or vegetable broth.  Pour a little in your pan instead of butter. Your family will not know the difference. 
  2. Swap out your high fat mayo, for a reduced fat mayo.
  3. My last tip is to use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream.

Save yourself, and your family some unwanted calories, and slim down in the process.  

Transform Yourself.

 With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.
