My go-to list for my clients contains these 3 tips:
We need to consume more and more water in order to see if we are truly hungry, or if we are socially and emotionally hungry. When I lost 50 pounds 7 years ago I was adding some lemons and cucumbers to my water bottles to make them more flavorful.
Now that I exercise in a hot yoga studio, I add a pinch of pink Himalayan salt or an electrolyte powder as well. It takes about three weeks for the body to get used to consuming g a gallon of water a day.
Take it in baby steps, increments up to about a cup a day. After three weeks your body will adjust accordingly.
2. Enlist a buddy. Accountability is key.
If someone is waiting for you to work out with them or check in daily with your meal plan and activity chart, you will be more likely to stick with the program. You may even help the relationship grow closer!
3. Keep a journal.
I believe in the power of writing down our thought and feelings along the way. Each tiny success is a “yes” to you in a healthy body. It’s a life-affirming book.
