Has your weight loss slowed? 4 secrets to kick-start your diet
Why not try some of my 4 secrets for kick-starting your diet:
1. Don’t deprive yourself! Denying yourself favorite foods usually ends up backfiring. Budget in satisfying treats that come in discrete units, such as Chocolate-Dipped Gingersnaps (157 calories for two cookies) or snacks that come in handy 100-calorie packages.
2. For just one week, commit to writing down everything you eat. Refresh yourself on what a healthy portion looks like and measure/weigh your servings to see how close you come to these.
3. Stick with recipes that provide built-in portion control. I love making Broccoli & Goat Cheese Souffles: so long as I don’t start sticking my fork into other people’s dinners, I will consume only 254 calories from this easy, filling dish.
4. Steal secrets. Talk with others who’ve successfully pushed passed a weight-loss plateau. Find out what works for them—and try their tips out for yourself.
