Just Lose It: Weight Loss Tips

• Eat at least three times a day

• Pay attention to your body. When you feel like you have had enough to eat, stop. Quit before you feel full, stuffed, or sick from eating. You can have more if you really are hungry.

• If you still feel hungry are unsatisfied after a meal or a snack, wait at least 10 minutes before you have more food. Often, the cravings will go away.

• Drink plenty of calorie-free drinks (water, tea, coffee). You may be thirsty, not hungry.

• Pick lean meats, low-fat or nonfat cheese and skim (nonfat) or 1% milk instead of higher-fat/higher-calorie choices.

• Get plenty of fiber. Vegetables, fruits and whole grains are good sources. Have a high-fiber cereal every day.

• Cut back on sugar. For example, drink less fruit juice and soda.

• Limit the amount of alcohol (beer, wine, and liquor) you drink.

• Keep all the food in the kitchen. Eat only in a chosen place, such as the table. Don’t eat in the car or the bedroom or in front of the TV.
