1. Eat more.

Well, actually you don’t need to eat more – you just need to eat more frequently. Eating 5-6 small meals each day a few hours apart will help keep your metabolism in check and keep you satisfied longer.

2. Drink water. Then drink some more.

You can’t lose weight without drinking enough water, so make sure you’re sipping on it all day long! This is super important and really seems to work for many different reasons….just trust me on this one…water, water, water!

3. Use portion plates.

The less food you put on your plate, the less you will eat. Instead of using regular sized plates, use saucers. Fill your plate up with veggies and you will still be satisfied, without going over your calorie intake for the day. Also, when you go out to dinner, ask for a “to-go box” before you even get your food. Yes, they may look at you like you’re crazy but that way you can package up half your dinner, lunch, breakfast before you see it and get tempted to eat ALL OF IT! If it’s in front of your face you will be more tempted to take a few extra bites.

4. Get rid of the temptation.

If chocolate is your weakness, keep it out of the house. If soda tempts you, it’s okay to drink it once in a while, but it should be a rare treat – not a staple in your refrigerator. Also, choose the dark chocolate next time, it’s much better for you!

5. Load up on veggies.

Your diet should be high in fruits and vegetables. They’re loaded with fiber, and will keep you full longer than the 100 calorie snack packs that are all the rage lately.

6. Workout smarter.

You can jump start your weight loss and keep your metabolism going for longer by doing 3 or 4 10-minute workouts instead of 1 big 30 or 40 minute cardio workout.

7. Track your food intake.

Keep a log of what you eat and drink every day for a week. You’d be surprised to see how high your calorie intake has been if you haven’t been tracking it. If you get in the habit of it now, you can continue to do it if you’d like. It’s not necessary, but it’s a helpful tool that many people use to stay on track.

8. Take an extra 1,000 steps each day.

Purchase a pedometer (don’t worry, they’re inexpensive), and take the stairs. Aim for 1,000 extra steps each day. They add up fast!

9. Buddy up.

Team up with a workout buddy to maximize your weight loss results! If you don’t feel like hitting the gym one day, send your buddy a text and he or she can motivate you to get your sweat on. You can return the favor when they feel like lounging a bit. 🙂

10. Avoid fad diets.

Though it’s tempting to try fad diets to try and lose weight fast, it’s best to follow the tips above to lose weight slowly so you can keep the weight off.

You’re turn….what are some tips you can add to the list for weight loss?!

  1. weight lifting. You burn calories longer than just cardio. Also, have a small cheat every 10th meal. It will help you not binge eat

    • I’ve been lifting for almost year. I’ve not seen results but then again my diet stinks! 😛 So I added cardio in today.

  2. Paula Keimig says

    There is a free app and related website called myfitnesspal which helps track your intake. You can even scan products. It’s like weightwatchers without the cost

  3. Valarie Bennett says

    Smart ideas!

  4. i agree with the small cheat. have a small portion of dessert every now and then so you don’t feel tempted to binge after 2 months of having no sweets.

  5. Don’t read recipes of rich desserts on your favorite blog 🙂

  6. I always have cut up fruit on hand. I’m a grazer and find myself opening the fridge many times during the day. To fight the extra calories I pick from a bowl of watermelon, pineapple, grapes, and whatever else I can toss together. The prep time is worth it and my son appreciates still having his snacks when he gets home.

  7. To tighten tone and firm, I have been using It Works. The wraps detox, tone, and tighten your body. It’s not water weight so it doesn’t come back with your tips above our supplements would be perfect!

  8. My best tip would have to be to schedule your work out like you do everything else. This is especially important for me. Otherwise, I’ll get too busy & not think about it or just not do it. Putting it in my schedule reminds me that it’s something I CAN’T afford to miss and is important.

  9. Moderation in all things. I’m not kidding.

  10. I just recently started a diet on June 12th called “The Simple Diet”. Basically you buy prepackaged meals from the grocery store, and eat those twice a day as well as three-five veggies or fruits with your meals.You also get to have three shakes a day, which ever ones you make. It gives a list of meals which they recommend you eating in the book, but as long as the meals are from 200-350 calories you should be fine. Since starting back on June 12th, I have lost 28 pounds.

    About a month ago i started following the book By Bob Harper, jumpstart to skinny. I have lost 12 lbs. so far of that extra baby weight that never wanted to go away. Its a calorie reduction diet. Its meant short term as far as the calorie reduction. He has another book I plan to follow when I am done with the low calorie side of this. Its been great! I dont do everything he says but fit it into my life and eat things I like that are easy but on the low calorie list (tuna, ground turkey, fruits, veggies, lower calorie greek yogurt, etc.)I dont do his meals and am still losing weight. Once you get your body used to less calorie intake, your stomach seems to adapt too and its easier to eat less. Its a good two week time period though of getting yourself into the routine. My hardest thing is late night eating. My fix, grabbing a banana at night if i am hungry instead of junk. Bananas go right thru you, junk doesnt. 🙂

    • Heather b. says

      Also sodium is somerhing to seriously watch. Check the labels of the foods you are eating. I was shocked at just how much was in the food I was eating. It’s like weight saboutage to load up on all that extra salt. 🙁 the water tip is so true too.

  12. I not sure if you would be interested in this fact but for many moms out there I researched something that may be surprising. I read that sometimes after a woman has a baby, some may develop diastasis recti a separation between your rectus abdominis muscles. Workouts like crunches and sit ups separate the two muscles even more. So pick your workouts wisely?

  13. Go Paleo! No kidding, just avoid eating grains and junk food. Eat real food and you don’t have to do small portions to lose weight and be healthy.

  16. Brittany P. says

    Something I like to do either once a week, or after eating a meal that wasn’t exactly the healthiest, is taking cucumber slices and soaking them in apple cider vinegar. Usually I’ll put them in the fridge for a little while to let them get cold. When I’m ready to eat them I add a little bit of black pepper and a dash of chili powder. Helps push out anything that’s, we’ll say, “lingering”. 🙂 Haha.
