4. Eat Often

Keep your metabolism working: Eat reasonable portions every few hours. Don’t starve between meals.

5. Follow Guidelines, Not Rules

Guidelines (e.g., lemon water with every meal and no white grains) are easier to follow than rigid rules (e.g., 400 calories at each meal with 100 calorie snacks).

6. Chew, Chew and Chew Some More

Chew to the point that your food is completely liquefied. This slows eating to create fullness and improves digestion.

7. Drink Warm Water with Lemon

Drink warm water with lemon 10-15 minutes before you eat and with every meal. It helps you feel full, hydrates you and it alkalizes your pH level.

8. Embrace Exercise

Sweating promotes movement of the lymphatic and circulatory systems.

9. Consider Supplements

Consider having a nutritional consultation so you can figure out exactly what your body needs to function optimally. Supplements that work well for many people include the Mystique Patch, hemp protein powder, probiotics, digestive enzymes, DHA and Vitamin D.

10. Find Ways to Be Happy

Get fresh air, relax and have fun. Your new healthy lifestyle won’t last if you don’t enjoy it!

  1. 10-15mins of running or walking a day is a great help. Our routine after a walk during the weekends with my kids is cooking healthy food. We are enjoying our time together this time of the year. Great list.

  2. Thanks for your tip about drinking a glass of water as soon as I wake up. I do binge-eating whenever I’m stressed, so it’s really hard for me to achieve weight loss. Maybe I can look for herbal supplements for sale that can help my body lose some extra pounds in a natural way.

  3. I can lose weight quickly, but when it comes to maintaining, I failed most of the times. Your post is inspiring and glad to know that it works out for you!
