Tips

Choose fresh fruit over processed/canned fruit. Fresh fruit is higher in fiber and processed fruits almost always are sweetened.

People who focus on being healthy often have greater long term success with weight loss than those who focus on losing weight.

Have a sweet tooth, but trying to stick to that diet? Try freezing grapes; they taste even sweeter when frozen, and are a great, healthy snack.

Just because something is "low-fat" doesn't mean it's "low-calorie". Burning more calories than you take in is what causes weight loss, so double check the label.

Keep meaning to pack lunch rather than eating out but never seem to have the time? Next time you cook dinner, cook double the portions and take the leftovers.

Replace your morning glass of juice with a piece of fruit and glass of water instead. Fruit contains more fiber than the juice, and it will leave you feeling more full in fewer calories.

Studies have shown those who regularly partake in the habit of eating with their less-dominant hand have been successful with their weight loss goal. Picking up a fork with the other hand tends to slow down the eating process, and thus makes you focus on your meal.

You don't have to WANT to exercise - you just have to DO it. The hardest part is starting, but within a few minutes of beginning your workout you'll feel better, and once you've finished, you'll feel a great sense of accomplishment.

When eating a salad, keep in mind that creamy salad dressings like Ranch and Caesar have 75 calories and 8 grams of fat per tablespoon! Balsamic vinegar has only 15 calories and no fat. Making this small change can save you upwards of 120 calories and 16 grams of fat per salad!
