you thought! Note what you drink, sauces,
spreads, etc., and any snacks. You’re probably eating 10% more calories than
- Eat three fewer bites of your meal (one of my personal
favorites). Reader’s Digest health
experts claim you can save at least 100 calories per day by doing this. This amounts to about 2 pounds per year –
which is what the average person is gaining!!
- Reach for food only when your stomach notifies you that it’s
time to eat!

be reduced! Plus, you’ll burn calories.

to packing on the pounds! Eating at home
lets you plan your meals and generally eat healthier!
- Bulk up your meals with vegies and eliminate anything ‘white.’ White rice, white bread, white sugar, white
flour…these foods are all devoid of nutrients and are therefore, empty
- Eat just a bite (maybe two) of that decadent dessert! The French claim it’s one of their ‘secrets!’

Now, here are a few tips of my own...
Ready for some serious
pound-dropping measures? No dangerous diuretics,
laxatives, or tapeworms here (which I
would, of course, never recommend)! Here
are my own ‘secret’ rapid weight loss tips for whenever I am desperate to drop a
- I eat an
early dinner - eating early allows me to burn off calories before bedtime
- I eat a
lighter dinner – a tossed salad with chicken or a bowl of soup – the next
morning I feel better (and lighter), too!
- I close
the kitchen after dinner – after cleaning up, I turn off the lights to
signal that ‘the kitchen is closed’
- I avoid
the salt shaker – salt causes water retention – reducing salt will help you
lose a few pounds of water-weight
increase my daily exercise – I’ll walk longer than usual, garden more, or
use the stairs more often
intensify my daily walk – I speed up, work up a sweat, and pass all the other walkers!
- I leave
more on my plate – my #1 all-time top secret tip!!!
- I get
plenty of sleep – this helps me avoid the kitchen, too

home – preparing my own meals helps me eat lighter and healthier
Just remember that cutting calories to unhealthy levels for
long periods can be dangerous. Your body
needs fuel for energy - and to build and repair tissues and cells. Depriving your body of nourishment will cost
you. Believe me, I’m proof.
