365 Tips for Losing Weight
by Liz Petersen
365 Tips for Losing Weight gives a new tip each day to help you stay focused on your weight loss goal day-in and day-out. I lost 50 pounds in 5 1/2 months and have kept the weight off since 2001 by using these tips. I did not use a specific program or system to lose weight, but if you do these tips will help you lose weight faster when your weight loss program and tips are used together.
A FREE eJournal, with printable pages for everything tips ask you to record, is available from the supporting website.
Losing weight is not a matter of knowing what to do. If I asked you right now to tell me what you need to do to lose weight, what would you answer? You would probably answer, without hesitating, “Eat less” and/or “exercise more”, like everyone else does.
If we already know what to do, why do we keep looking for a faster, easier way? We have been bombarded with messages and products promising easy, fast, effortless ways to lose weight. We want to believe it, but deep down, we know better. I've been there, tried that, learned that lesson. To me, losing weight isn't a matter of not knowing what to do, but a matter of knowing how to do it – day in and day out for long enough to get the results you want.
365 Tips for Losing Weight will help you from the first pound to the 30th pound to the 50th pound and beyond - and on to your maintenance phase too. Some tips are specific "to dos" to help you cut calories. Some help motivate you to exercise. Some teach the principles you'll need to succeed and keep it off for life. Some help change the way you think about losing weight. All tips are about keeping your head in the game!
Here are some of the actual tips you'll find in this book:
Day 13 - "Replace part of each meal with fruit or salad. Try new, different fruits and salad vegetables as they’re in season. Fresh fruit is obviously best. Frozen fruit is convenient since it doesn't spoil. Canned fruit isn't the best but if it's a better choice than you usually make, have it."
Day 14 - "One day at a time, one pound at a time. If you take it one day at a time, one meal at a time, and one decision at a time, you'll see results one pound at a time. ..."
Day 31 - "Use my "3-Bite Rule" for high calorie, high fat or high sugar foods - make it 3 bites, even if you can eat it in 1. The trick here is to eat the 3 bites slowly, really slowly, and really enjoy each bite. The first bite is just a warm up and your taste buds will want another, you really enjoy the second bite and look forward to the next, then that third bite is absolutely satisfying. And since you're satisfied, you don't need another bite!"
I know my story is not typical – and neither is yours. Everybody has obstacles, some more, some less, some more serious for sure. I KNOW you can do it, because I have been where you are right now. If I can do it, you can do it. Through these tips I will teach you everything I learned through this journey - the thoughts I had, the things I did, and the changes I went through. If you're ready to begin your journey, let's Start Losing Weight Today!
