Know your numbers. 

You can find your healthy weight by knowing your Body Mass Index (BMI).  You can calculate this number yourself or use a tool called the “BMI Wheel”.

Exercise.

Increase your fruit and vegetable intake. 

Using fruits and vegetable to replace high calorie foods in the diet like pop, chips, candy, cookies, etc. can lower your total calories per day, which will result in weight loss.  Fruits and vegetables are perfect snack foods. 

Increase your fiber. 

Fiber is found in fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains.  The recommend daily allowance for fiber is 25-30 grams of fiber.  Fiber is listed on the food label under carbohydrates.  Start counting your fiber grams per day and see where you are.  If you are below the suggested amount, add fiber gradually to the diet and drink more water as you add it. 

Increase your water intake.

 People often get the feelings of hunger and thirst mixed up.  When you think you are hungry, drink 16 ounces of water, then wait 20 minutes to see if you are truly hungry.  It is important to get a minimum of 64 ounces of fluids per day.  Water is calorie-free so it makes the best beverage choice for weight loss!

Watch out for high-calorie beverages. 

Pop, fruit juice, kool-aid, lemonade, alcohol and ice tea are all high-calorie beverages.  These should be used sparingly when trying to lose weight.  No more than 16 ounces per week is ideal. 

Stay away from fast food. 

Most fast food is high in fat and calories.  Eating fast food, even if it’s once or twice a week can really sabotage a persons weight loss plan.  Pack your lunch before you head off to work or school. 

Follow “your” food guide pyramid. 

Log onto www.mypyramid.gov to get the latest information on healthy eating.  You can get a personalized meal plan online as well. 

Keep food records. 

It is a proven theory that keeping a food journal or food record is a sure way to decrease what you are eating by 20% each day.   Start keeping track of what you eat and drink each day.  If you feel real motivated you can keep track of calories this way as well. 

Don’t do it alone. 

Find someone who is in the same journey as you and make do it with them. Please who have support around them tend to achieve goals faster.  Find someone to hold you accountable!
