While there are so many wonderful goals besides weight loss, I did want to share some advice and tips to support you, if losing weight IS one of your goals.⁠ As you all know, there is no “one size fits all ” diet for weight loss, because everyone’s body and lifestyles are different. That being said, there are some basic foundational practices that can not only help you lose weight, but also will contribute to you feeling your best. At the end of the day, being happy & healthy is the most important thing, and that will look different on every body (literally). 

When it comes to weight loss, you do need to be in a calorie deficit in order to lose weight. That doesn’t necessarily mean you need to make radical changes all at once, so start out small.  You’ll be amazed to see how quickly small incremental changes will make on your body & mind.  

Some of these tips can definitely help you reach your goals, mainly by limiting highly palatable foods and loading up on high satiety, filling foods.⁠ Tracking calories and macros for a period of time can also help you gauge your overall portion sizes, so you have a healthy baseline on how much food you should be consuming.  This will also depend on the type of food – whether it’s a protein, healthy fat, carbs, fruits, veggies, etc.  At the end of the day, you want to find a routine that feels sustainable & healthy overall. 

So without further ado, here are my 6 tips to lose weight the healthy way:

1️. Stop drinking your calories: This can be one of the biggest offenders to sabotaging your weight loss! With the exception of high quality protein shakes, avoiding sugary drinks like sodas, juices and even many store-bought smoothies can help cut back on these less-nutritious calories & save you the blood sugar spike & crash. 

2️. Limit the highly processed foods you eat: These foods are often easy to over-consume and while you definitely should enjoy your favorites in moderation, limiting the amount you eat on a regular basis will help your waistline & overall health.⁠

3️. Add tons of veggies to your meals: Veggies are great because they’re high in fiber, low in calories and add beneficial phytonutrients, prebiotics, vitamins & minerals to your meals. 

4️. Make sure you’re getting enough protein: Whether planted-based or animal, protein is one if the most important macronutrient & will help your feel full when you incorporate it into a meal.⁠

5️. Add in healthy fats: Fats are important for many functions in the body so don’t neglect this macronutrient.⁠

6️. Find the right amount of whole food carbs for you: Carbs are NOT the enemy. I repeat.  Depending on your activity level and goals, find the right amount for you 😁⁠

Remember, to be patient and kind to yourself.⁠ Changing habits takes time, but guess what?! YOU GOT THIS! I’m here to be your resource & help you along your journey.
