Tip #13: Train Your Brain to Lose Weight.

 30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, and see better results.

My dad always used to say, “Baby, your eyes are bigger than your stomach.”  He was right. Now I know better, and how to train my brain.

Here’s a great tip, to trick your brain: use a blue plate.

It’s true.  The color blue will help trick your brain to not want to sit and linger. You’ll eat less.

Ever wondered my so many fast food places use warm colors like: red, brown, orange, gold and tan? Comfort colors go hand in hand with quick and easy comfort foods. They want you to order more and hope your eyes are bigger than your stomach.

Your new blue plate will help you to think and feel satisfied, so you won’t go back for seconds.

 

Next, choose a 9 inch plate instead of the 10 or 12 or 16 inch plate. These giant, platter size plates just make you want to fill them up, and eat more than you need.  

So go blue.  Train your brain. Shrink your plate, and shrink your waist.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.

Tip #12: Transform Family Recipes, and Lose Weight.

30-tips in 30-days. Get better health, and see better results.

I love traditional family recipes, but I don’t like all the extra calories. So today, I’m going to share with you a couple of easy tricks you can do to make family favorites healthier, and taste great.

3-ticks to save calories, and not skimp on taste:

  1. Use broth for sautéing instead of butter. You can use organic chicken broth, beef broth, or vegetable broth.  Pour a little in your pan instead of butter. Your family will not know the difference. 
  2. Swap out your high fat mayo, for a reduced fat mayo.
  3. My last tip is to use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream.

Save yourself, and your family some unwanted calories, and slim down in the process.

Tip #10: Canned or Frozen. Which is better for your health and weight loss?

30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, see better results.

I want to talk about which is the better choice when you can’t get fresh fruits and vegetables.

Q. Canned or frozen?

A. Frozen is going to be the better choice.  There’s less preservatives. The food is  typically flash frozen right out of the field, so you’re still getting as many of the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that that plant or fruit is going to provide you. 

But fresh is always better.

30-tips in 30-days. Get better health, and see better results.

Just because you have a crazy lifestyle, doesn’t mean you have to resort to fast food.

If you know you’re going to have a crazy day, plan ahead of time. Prepare and plan not just for you, but for your family. Shop bulk and cook on Sundays.

What we typically do on Sunday is grill a few days’ worth of chicken, and prepare all the salad fixings so they ready to go.

If you are in a pinch, instead of running into a fast food place, hit your grocery store. Pick us a rotisserie chicken, and grab a bag of lettuce. Head home with some healthy choices for your family.

 Just because we’re busy, doesn’t mean that we can’t eat good healthy foods.

Tip #6: Water and Weight Loss.

30 Tips in 30 days. See better results, get better health.

There was a funny show, back in the day, called: Saturday Night Live, where the cook yells out; Cheeseburger, cheeseburger, cheeseburger. Fast forward to losing weight, and you’ll hear me yell out; water, water, water.

There is not a better morning routine that you can do than to add water at the start of your day, and here it is: brush your teeth, weigh yourself (optional), and have a glass of water.

How much water should you drink a day?  

The rule of thumb will depend on your body weight. Start by taking your current weight, so let’s say you weigh 200 pounds, cut that in half, that’s 100. Now convert those hundred pounds to 100 ounces of water.

For a person who weighs 200 pounds, the ideal amount of water to drink in the course of your day would be 100 ounces.  I know this sounds like a lot of water, but as you gain better health, and shed pounds, your water intake is going to go down.

Bottom line: at the very least, drink 64 ounces of water, or decaffeinated drinks each day.  

Stay away from adult beverages, like wine and beer while you’re in the weight loss phase.

Water, water, water.  Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.  You’ll think clearer, your skin will look better, and you’ll improve your overall health, not to mention, it will help keep your appetite down which can help you lose weight.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.
