I focus on eating frequently n small portions. You will never see me not eating really. Ask anyone and they will say that if I don't eat I turn into a "Mangry" ( hungry angry) monster.
I also like to have a 12 hour fast. This means if I plan to wake up and eat at 8 before class or my workout then I stop eating at 8. This doesn't alway workout but it's a goal.
I pack all my food and plan ahead. I try to not eat out because I do not know where my food is coming from or how they prepared it.
I try to food journal and measure my food when it is appropriate. I do it for a week then take a weeks off. That way I am staying on severing size and more aware of how much I am eating.
I focus on basic foods that are minimally processed. If you don't know how to cook I suggest you learn. It will help you tremendously. Try making things from scratch instead of packaged things.
Mix it up and try new things. I'm always trying new recipes and new workouts. I like routine but I like to challenge myself and keep my body guessing.
Love what you do & practice what you preach. If you don't like what you are doing.. Do something different. If you don't like running try cardio or spinning or or Zumba or kickboxing or Cross fit. You are more likely to stick to things you enjoy doing.
Listen to your body. ThIs is the best advice I can give you. If something doesn't feel right then your body is telling you something. If I am tired the I need to rest. Getting worn down is just not an option. I fuel my body based of how hungry I am not on what someone else thinks I should eat. I know my body better than anyone so I should be the expert on how to treat it.
Try focusing on one tip every few weeks and keep reevaluating yourself. Set goals and dates to which you would like to achieve these goals. Leading a healthy life style is not always the easiest but I it will always be worth it in the end!
And don't forget- Shop the outer ring round your store!
