1. Consider the Take Shape for Life Weight loss program.
Contact Dr. Julie Conner for more information or visit www.healthyweighs.tsfl.com to view the 80 different mini meal replacement options available.
2. Join an exercise class.
An alternative is to join an active meet up group, such as a local cycling group.
3. Drink lots of water.
Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue. Preliminary research indicates that 8 to 10 glasses of water a day can significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
4. Reduce or better yet eliminate your intake of high calorie beverages such as soda and juices.
Again, replace the soda with an ice cold water and you’ll feel the difference as the day progresses.
5. Eat small, frequent mini- meals throughout the day.
Reduce your portions and start eating from a smaller plate. Contrary to the grumbling coming from your stomach, skipping breakfast is not a healthy or effective way to see results. Instead of eating one larger meal at lunch, break your meals up into smaller healthy snacks.
6. Eat low fat protein throughout the day.
We recommend making an appointment with Dr. Julie Conner to get you on the right track.
7. Make sure that you get adequate sleep.
Getting a restful night’s sleep plays an important role in losing weight.
8. Keep your fruit where you can see it.
Add extra fruits & vegetables to your salads, sandwiches, smoothies and snacks. Eating a diet rich in fruits and veggies can drastically reduce the risk for stroke and other chronic diseases.
9. Increase your intake of non-starchy vegetables.
Non-starchy vegetables: typically flowering parts of a plant, e.g. lettuce (the greener the better), asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber, spinach, mushrooms, onions, peppers and tomatoes
10. Keep a food diary.
Be aware and accountable for what you put in your mouth.
