10 Weight-Loss Tips and Tricks That Work

  1. Be consistent. If you are starting a fitness plan, make it simple. But most of all be consistent. Do 30 minutes of some form of cardio every day. Don't miss it and make it a habit. Even if it's walking. —Connie
  2. Plan and prep. At the beginning of the week, plan and prep meals — and plan how/when you will get your body moving in a way that makes you smile. Planning joy into your life in terms of how you feed your body, how you move your body and how you nurture and care for your soul (managing stress, pampering yourself, etc.) seem to be the keys to me. —Elisa
  3. Stay busy! It burns calories and prevents boredom eating. —Cheryl
  4. Focus on how you feel. The less sugar you eat, the less you crave it, for real! NO fast food! I have found eating four small meals a day helps . . . and don't go by the scale, go by the way you feel. Seriously commit to 14 days, and you'll be hooked! —Amy
  5. Pack it up. Packing breakfast, lunch and a snack in the morning takes less than 30 minutes and helps me stay on track. "Fail to plan, and you plan to fail." Amirite? —Grisella
  6. Get back to basics. Exercise at least four days per week, eat real food, drink plenty of water and get some sleep. —Marian
  7. Batch your cooking. Cook for the week and portion out your food every Sunday. —Tara
  8. Get a hobby. Find a hobby that ensures your hands HAVE to stay clean and busy! Crochet, knitting, crafting of any type. You end up with a cool project, and since your hands are busy, you're not using them to eat snacks you shouldn't have!!! —Anne
  9. Keep it simple. Eat less. Move around more. —Jennifer
  10. And our personal favorite: don't diet! It's a lifestyle change . . . not a diet!! Eat more whole foods, exercise and sleep. If you tend to want to snack at night, brush your teeth for the night early … then you won't be as tempted to eat, because then you would have to do it all again. —Mindy
