7 Quick Tips to Lose Weight this Week

Here are my 7 tips to lose weight this week! Yes! It’s possible! You don’t have to do all of these things, but they give you options!

I don’t want your weight to control you, but these tips will help you take back control of the bad lifestyle habits you’ve developed.

Though I am not a big supporter of words like quick, fast, or rapid when it comes to weight loss, I do think that there ARE certain “quick fixes” that can help to re-set your mentality and get you on the right track to health.

TIP 1: Drink MORE water

I used to have a horrible diet soda addiction… like horrible; and one of the things that helped me was to substitute the diet coke with lemon, ginger, cayenne water.

To get myself in the habit of drinking more water, I bought 4 insulated bottles and made sure that I drank it all by the end of the day.

Generally you want to consume approximately 75% of your body weight in water.

TIP 2: Close the Kitchen

Set a time in which the kitchen is CLOSED! It’s crazy amazing how flat your stomach will be if you don’t eat a few hours before you go to bed.

TIP 3: Cycling your Macronutrients

On your heaviest training days, eat complex carbohydrates. But take note, that on your higher carb days, you want to have lower fat.

So for example, 2 days of a higher intake of complex carbs, followed by 2 days of eating less carbs more protein and more fat. For more details on this, listen to the episode!

TIP 4: Use Smaller Plates

This will work with your brain to help you not eat as much. Weight gain isn’t just about what you eat, it’s also about how much you eat! You need to do a better job of portion control and that starts with what you’re putting your food on.

TIP 5: What is your Nemesis

What is that trigger food? The food you mindlessly eat? The food you have no control over? STOP BUYING IT!!! Throw it away! Stop putting it in your life.

TIP 6: 3 Day Cleanse

Ok, hear me out. Look this is not a permanent solution. But it can spark your motivation to get on the right track. Cleanses often help you tap into your emotional reactions to food. Please make sure you check with your physician first.

TIP 7: Give Intermittent Fasting (IF) a Try

IF does not mean you necessarily consume less calories. It means that you consume about the same amount of calories, but in a smaller window of time. So for example, you would start eating your daily calories around 11 or 12 and would stop eating around 6 pm. IF is something you want to learn more about before you start it.

  1. Hi Lovely Lady,

    I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all you do for our health. Thank you for ALL the topics you present. I would love to go on iTunes and share my feedback but I don’t know how? I log in but I can’t find where to do that. The interview with Dr Zach Bush has been the most empowering interview I have ever heard in the 60 years.
