- Eat protein at every meal. Consuming protein at every meal will keep you fuller longer and help ensure weight loss is fat and not muscle. Here are some simple examples: chicken, turkey, lean ground beef, filet steaks, tuna, cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, and eggs.
- Eat veggies for snacks. Replaced a high caloric snack with veggies that you enjoy. Have them cut up and ready to eat. This way, you can grab and go. Many of the grocery stores have veggies that are already cut up and washed.
- Consume 64 oz of Zero calorie drinks. Calories in drinks can add up quickly. By choosing a non-caloric drink, you can save lots of calories and sugar. Here are some examples to try: seltzer water, teas, diet drinks, zero calorie sports drinks, or add flavors with Crystal light or Mio.
- Increase Movement. Go for a walk, ride your bike, or take a few extra steps while cleaning the house. You can even park a little further to get some extra steps in daily. Start tracking your steps with your phone that has a step tracker, a pedometer, or Apple watch, Fit bit etc. Ideally, 10,000 steps is the goal.
Pick one and start today! Repeat the same habit every day until you don’t have to think about it. Then pick another habit and repeat everyday. Do this until you complete all four simple habits.
