7 Tips To Help You Start Losing Weight

The Internet is flooded with tips to lose weight, but they may not all be evidence-based. In general, if something sounds too good to be true, it usually is! Always discuss any weight loss programs or efforts with your medical professional so they can rule out any problems that may be present and address those before you begin your weight loss journey.

  1. Water, water, everywhere!
    Did you know that drinking around 17 ounces of water can increase metabolic rate by 30%? Drinking water during the day is a crucial component to losing weight. Staying hydrated helps you avoid overeating, and it’s a much better choice than sugar-laden juices and colas.
  2. Pencil yourself in
    Many of us like to say we’re too busy to exercise. If that’s your regular excuse, you’ll have no excuse when you work yourself into your own calendar. That’s right—make a date with yourself, whether it’s with a pencil and paper or by setting an alarm on your electronic calendar, right next to work and other obligations.
  3. Find a buddy
    Holding yourself accountable to someone else is a great way to stay motivated and committed. Whether it’s in person or on an online forum, announcing your goals and encouraging others can be a great way to stay on plan. There’s even an app for that—several, in fact. Check out 25+ top apps for staying accountable during weight loss.
  4. Clean out the pantry
    If you know your weakness happens to be cheez-doodle consumption after 9pm, make it hard to follow through by cleaning out your pantry. Get rid of everything that may cause you to stumble that does not appear on your weight loss plan. Check your local food banks to see what they accept for donations, and you can turn your stumbling blocks into good deeds.
  5. Phase out refined sugar
    Sugar is in just about every processed food in some form or another. Learn to read labels to learn to identify hidden sources of sugar. Did you know that there are almost 100 different names for sugar and sugar alcohols on ingredient lists? Be a savvy shopper and leave those products on the shelf.
  6. Try a new vegetable
    Have you always shied away from the produce section because you weren’t sure what something was or how to cook it? Whether it’s baby bok choy or the Fibonacci-shaped romanesco broccoli, tantalize your palate with new flavors and textures.
  7. Select a long-standing diet with proven results
    Whether you’ve tried to lose weight before or are new to the entire process, following a diet under medical supervision, such as the hCG Diet, can help reset your metabolism and jumpstart your weight loss.
