Diet Tips

  • Drink enough water and start your day with a cup. Our bodies consist mostly of water and requires between 1 and 2 liters of water each day so make sure to drink 8 to 10 cups of water daily.
  • Be physically active and incorporate exercise into your daily routines.
  • Losing weight is a lifestyle, not a diet
  • Make sure to eat your 3 full meals (breakfast – lunch – dinner) in the right time of the day, and eat your dinner 3 hours before sleeping.
  • Enjoy your meals and eat slowly, each meal should not take less than 15 minutes to finish.
  • Low fat and fat free products are not calorie free; they might contain high levels of sugars, thus resulting in weight gain. We advise to eat these products in moderation.
  • Choose food lower in saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol.
  • Cut back on sugary drinks, the average 12-ounce can of soda has more than 100 calories and 10 teaspoons of sugar.
  • Don’t eat just because you are bored; eat only when you are hungry.
  • Don’t eat too much pasta, bread, or rice. Eat more vegetables instead.
  • Don’t skip breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day.
  • In a restaurant, start your meal with a salad packed with veggies, to help control hunger and feel satisfied sooner.
  • Make sure to eat 5-8 servings of fruit and vegetables every day.
  • Skip the fast food. Fast food can be very high in trans fatty acids, sodium and calories.
  • When you feel full, it’s time to stop eating.
  • When eating out, order steamed, grilled, or broiled dishes instead of those that are fried.
  • Avoid after-dinner snacks, but if you want to munch on something, eat an apple or a healthy snack.
  • Lift weights. The more muscle mass you have, the more calories you burn.
  • Stay focused on getting in shape to be healthy, not on just getting thin.
  • Analyze why you overeat. If you have other issues (depression, boredom, stress) learn to cope better with them without using food.
  • Portion control, Portion control, Portion control!
  • Eat more grains and fiber. Eat less sugar and fatty foods.
  • Walk or jog everyday for at least 30 minutes.
  • Get enough sleep (7-9 hours), It is essential to weight loss.
  • Drink green tea instead of regular tea or coffee because it is a good antioxidant.
  • Weigh yourself on weekly basis on the same scale in the same time of the day, preferably in the morning.
  • Brush your teeth right after dinner so you can be reminded not to eat after that.
  • Never go food shopping when you’re hungry!
  • Size matters! Keep a track of your measurements, losing inches and dropping a clothes size is just as important and rewarding as what the scales are telling you.
