Measure Your Food
“My number one tip is to weigh and measure your food. It sounds tedious, but in reality it’s super quick and easy, and prevents extra calories from sneaking in. I weigh all protein servings and measure all liquids like oils and salad dressings. At this point, it’s just a habit for me… When I slip up and stop doing it for awhile, the scale inevitably creeps up.”–Kat Carney, who lost 90 pounds
Focus On What You CAN Have
Instead of thinking about all the foods you cannot have, such as donuts or bagels with cream cheese, focus on what foods you can enjoy regularly. Focusing on the foods you cannot eat will only make you unhappy!
Forget The Sugar
“My number one tip is to cut sugar out of your diet. The ketogenic diet, in addition to willpower, helped me lose the weight and keep it off. Also, a diet of delicious meats, cheeses, bacon and other fatty foods is very easy to follow.”–Chase Bowler, who lost 75 pounds
Accept Your Failures
“My number one tip is to let go of the all-or-nothing mentality and accept that your journey will not be perfect. Don’t use slip-ups as an excuse to go crazy and sabotage all of your hard work. My most successful clients are the ones that accept failure (aka slip-ups) as a part of the journey. The least successful people are the ones who try to be perfect 100 percent of the time and instead allow one misstep to derail everything.”–Jamie Morocco, who lost over 20 pounds
