What if we told you that you could lose weight while continuing to eat all your favorite foods? You’d call us crazy, but we’d tell you it’s the easier way. Think about your last low carb diet; how long did it take until you caved and just ordered a pizza? We’d bet it was much sooner than you’d like to admit. And that’s because you’re trying to change what you eat rather than trying to adopt healthy eating habits.
You see, the reason that dropping those first few pounds is so difficult is because the majority of weight-loss strategies begin by eliminating foods from your diet. While that certainly makes sense, stacking up major diet change on top of major diet change is not only overwhelming, but it can also make you feel deprived and disheartened. As a result, you might lose weight initially, but it can just as easily come right back.
That’s where this list is different. Rather than changing what you eat, these tips focus on how you eat. That’s right, you can eat that pizza! Just make sure you’re sitting down at the dinner table, that it’s around 6:30, and that you’re taking breaks between bites to chat with your family. As you’ll soon find out, these minor adjustments to your late-night, loner pizza binges can actually pay off and keep off the pounds in the long run. Implement a few of these healthy eating habits, and you’ll lose 10 pounds in no time!
