Happy New Year to all…..and what a great time to make some simple changes in order improve your health in 2014!! ┬áHere are some simple strategies to help with your weight loss goals and notice that none of them involve starving…

  • Eat a health breakfast every morning in order to jumpstart your metabolism. A bowl of plain oatmeal sprinkled with cinnamon for an even greater metabolism boost is great. Add your own fresh or frozen organic fruit & some ground flax seeds.
  • Don’t get bogged down counting calories but rather eyeball portion sizes when it comes to protein, carbs & fat
    • Lean protein-about the size of your iPhone
    • Healthy carbs-about the size of your fist
    • Healthy fats-about the size of your thumb
    • Fruit-about the size of a large apple
    • Veggies (without butter), but still deliciously seasoned- Unlimited.
  • Include lean animal protein or veggie protein with every meal in order to feel satiated, as well as healthy fats.
  • Don’t allow yourself to become so hungry, that you may make unhealthy choices. Snack on nutrient dense foods in between meals such as an apple and several almonds.
  • Balance your blood sugar levels throughout the day. Highs and lows of insulin can lead to storage of body fat.
  • Limit processed foods that pack on the pounds and contain chemicals that are toxic to your body. Enjoy whole foods!
  • Read not only the food label, but the list of ingredients. Light and low fat packaged food may contain hidden additional sugars.
  • Never drink your calories, unless its a glass of wine or a nutritious smoothie. Drink water before meals to curb your appetite.
  • Never wear stretch pants to the dinner table!
