Good answer.

7 habits of The Weight Loss Forever Society.


Does the idea of eating healthier make you queasy?  Been there done that, not even worth trying again


Is your first thought that you need to buy special food and completely change your lifestyle?


That would make sense because that’s all were typically marketed, the quick fix, lets do something miserable and nearly impossible, cross our fingers and hope for the best.


That’s not the way you got good at your job, or any other skill you developed.


What you can do instead is practice a few simple principles slowly over time until they just become what you do.


Well, here are seven tips you can incorporate today without ever setting foot in the grocery store or cracking open a cookbook.


Try these seven easy steps to improving your diet, right now:


It seems pretty simple, it is, but that doesn’t make it easy.  Real food is essentially stuff that doesn’t come in a bag, box or package.  Yes, there are exceptions and yes you will have to eat some things that are slightly processed.  However, focusing in real foods will lead you to more veggies (even if they come in a bag frozen), more lean proteins, fruits and healthy fats.  The less ingredients the better.  More real food will help you stay satisfied, full of energy and less likely to grab stuff from a package.  If fat loss is your goal minimizing processed stuff is your key, it’s just so easy to overeat and it is packed with extra calories.


Healthy fruit juice is a myth. Fruit is delicious but it’s high in natural sugar. It’s also high in vitamins and fiber when you eat it and don’t drink it! A serving of fruit can satiate your craving for sweets and fill you up.  Take away: fruit juice is not bad, it’s just super easy to drink a lot of it.  If weight loss it what you’re after, eat fruit and don’t drink it.


Grab and go eating is the norm for most of us. And unless you plan ahead, you’ll end up grabbing processed snacks and prepared foods that are filling your body with unwanted sodium, chemicals, and garbage. So instead of reaching for what’s convenient, take ten minutes to scribble out a game plan for the rest of your day and follow your playbook. A banana and a tablespoon of peanut butter will fuel you so much better than a bag of chips or a candy bar. Planning ahead, requires, well planning. Start slow plan one meal a day, heck even starting with a few meals a week will help you get better at planning, AKA. Practice.


Measuring is a hassle but portion size is everything. Regardless of WHAT you eat, if you eat too much of it you won’t lose weight. Those are just the facts.


The easiest way to mind your portions is to serve your portions based on the size of your hands:
Honestly, hand size varies, so you may be tempted to pull out the  measuring cups and spoons in the days ahead.
Don’t do it! It’s likely not any more accurate than using your hand. This easy guesstimate method can save you from overeating and help you reign in your portion size without carrying any special tools and while staying sane. Easy is good.
This sounds ridiculous but most of us have a sugar habit that makes dessert a day-long investment in crap eating. We eat sugary cereal, fruity yogurt, pancakes, and pastries in the morning and call it breakfast. We sweeten our coffee. We reach for candy at our desks. We have cookies after lunch and “treat ourselves” to ice cream after dinner.
All those things really add up. Choose ONE time of day to indulge in something sweet.. You will be amazed at how much better you feel when you limit your sugar without denying yourself.
Walk straight past the soda machine, skip the double mocha latte frappuccino and the fruit punch (no matter what kind of tricky marketing words are on the bottle), and head right to the water fountain. Water is your best friend. Drinking water is like showering your body from the inside out, rinsing away toxins, filling you up, hydrating your hair and skin, and yes, decreasing your appetite. DRINK UP.
This does not mean you should only ever drink water, work towards letting water dominate what you drink, especially if fat loss is what you are after.
Life is crazy. I get that. But eating is one of life’s essential pleasures. Don’t squander it by rushing through meals and snacks so quickly you can’t remember what you ate. Slow down. Savor every bite. Let your taste buds celebrate what you are offering them. When you take the time to enjoy your meals you’ll make every mouthful count. Adjusting your pace and making mealtimes a “time out” will help you focus on quality over quantity.
Every one of these seven tips are something you can try today without any significant extra preparation.  You can even turn each of these tools into a question you ask yourself before or after a meal.  Is this mostly real food? Eating better doesn’t have to be painful, it should be enjoyable. My whole weight loss and fitness philosophy is based on baby steps because making small changes slowly over time is really all us humans can handle, but they add up to huge change, change that is not fleeting, but that lasts!
