Drink lots of water

Sometimes when we think we are hungry, we are actually thirsty!

Get plenty of sleep

Sometimes when we are tired, we feel hungry and eat more, even when what we need is more sleep!

Walk every day

Try to get at least 30 minutes of physical activity throughout the day.  If that seems like a lot, start small.  Walk your dog in the morning.  Take a walk after dinner with your family.  The steps and the minutes add up quickly!

Weigh yourself

Studies have shown that those who weigh themselves every day weigh less than those who don’t. If you weigh more today than you did yesterday, eat a little less today.  Track your weight and see the pounds drop off!

Eat breakfast

Studies have shown than people who eat a healthy breakfast weigh less than people who skip breakfast.  Try to get at least two food groups (fruit, dairy, grain, meat) into breakfast and start your day off right!

Fill up on veggies

Fill half your plate with vegetables to help feel full after your meal, but keep the calorie count low.

Plan ahead

Pack healthy snacks and meals so you are not tempted by unhealthy items when you are at work or on the go.
