I listed some tips for you that I learned through my journey: Please note I am not a physician or dietitian, just a regular person like you. This is my individual experience, and discipline.
# 1– Eat adequate food! Your body cannot function without it’s fuel! You require a MINIMUM of 1200 calories a day for a female. However, I suggest a minimum of 1500. However, you ought to consult your medical professional for a better quantity. Just keep in mind if you don’t eat enough, your body enters into starvation mode and will keep whatever as fat.

When you eat too much, you’ll gain! Remember 1lbs is 3500 calories! Your body burns calories when we do not do anything so don’t’ believe you’ll get 3500 calories if you consume that in a week.
# 2– Count your calories, a minimum of for the first week or two. You ‘d be surprised in exactly what you believe is healthy and is not. I was drinking a skimmed milk latte and a croissant for breakfast every day, and that was above 500 calories. Not clever, not to mention I was hungry after a short while after breakfast, which brings me to # 3.
# 3– Eat breakfast! As Mommy constantly said it’s the most crucial meal of the day, and it is. Your body requires fuel to speed up your metabolism and to get everything going inside your body. I like to consume yogurt with fruit and granola, or oatmeal with Greek Yogurt, and often eggs and pancakes. I prefer to eat about 300 calories for breakfast. Having complete hearty meals, with protein, a pinch of fat and carbs will keep me filled for 3 or 4 hours.
# 4– Snacks! Snacks are necessary to keep the metabolism streaming. I consume a mid-morning treat such as hummus and veggies, or a piece of fruit, boiled egg, granola or perhaps yogurt. Keep away from bad foods, like chocolate, fried things and absolutely nothing higher than 100– 150 calories.
# 5– Read Labels! If you choose to eat processed foods, read your labels, not everything is bad. However, some stuff is. I take a look at the calories, serving size, carbohydrates, protein, fiber and sugar. If it’s low in protein and fiber, don’t get it. High in fat and sodium? I put it right back on the rack. Be a smart customer and read those labels. If you can’t pronounce and ingredients, it’s most likely bad for you. Don’t buy something because the plan states low fat or no sugar added that doesn’t mean anything!! Sugar from alcohol is still sugar!!! If it’s low in fat, it made sense that it is high in some ingredients; they have to add something to preserve and include taste.
# 6– Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. If you do this, you can’t fail!
# 7– Drink lots of water. I have at least eight glasses of water a day, and if I exercise, I drink more. I need to recharge my body because I sweat it out and sweating benefits you !!
# 8– Workout! I attempt to Cardio a minimum of 20 min/day. I do 30 minutes of cardio 6-7 days a week. Do some short walk. I feel very good when I do, and it gets me off my butt! However, pursue a minimum of 5 days a week if you can’t make 6 or 7. Start slowly if you are just starting.

Tuesday Lower Body
Thursday Upper Body
Friday Lower Body
# 9– Make your very own meals from scratch and strategize ahead. If you make your meals, you understand what your eating, you know what enters into a meal and you can control the fat, sugar, and sodium. This is a huge one for me. I like cooking, it’s like an art to me! Plus I like to share my foods with my friends, household and you!
# 10– Do not deprive yourself. You do not have to give up the foods you like, just have them in small amounts, like when a week or every day if you fit it into your weight loss program. If you deprive yourself, you will probably fail.
# 11– Most notably, set an objective and work hard to attain it! Do not quit, even if you mess up for a day or two. Just get back on that horse and keep going. Along with that note, you need to reward yourself! If you reach a small objective, then treat yourself to a pair of denim or something you prefer.

# 12– I nearly forgot! Inform yourself and get support from family and friends. Tell people what your objectives are and be extremely pleased with yourself! You are doing a good thing for you and your family!
Well, that’s it for me! Don’t worry; I’ll make another Post when I have new discoveries and experiences. Oh and I’ll add images soon so that you can see my progress.
