At this time of year, I’ve been focused on keeping off those extra pounds from all of the holiday celebrations. During these times, I am especially grateful for the guidance and support I get from my good friend, weight loss expert and #1 NY Times best-selling author, Victoria Moran!
I’ve been waking up every morning with My Weight Loss for Life Motivational Alarm Clock® Messages – Victoria’s personal success tips that helped her to lose over 60 pounds and maintain her weight loss for over two decades!
This is Victoria’s Top Ten Ways to Lose Weight for Life – to help you to stay healthy and trim during the holidays… and for life!
1. Get lots of greens in your diet. Romaine, broccoli, arugula, collards, romaine, and the rest can be steamed, sauteed, tossed as salads, blended as soup or green smoothies, or juiced into something luscious like the Green Goddess: celery, kale, apple, and lemon.
2. Experiment with a variety of kinds of movement until you discover ways to stay active that make you happy. Try walking, dancing, yoga, weight training, and maybe some sport you enjoyed as a child.
3. Make friends with healthy people whose own lives will reflect your healthy lifestyle back to you.
4. Don’t put yourself on a diet. Weight loss for life is living in that
lovely “grace space” between the diet and the binge.
5. Don’t try to solve your problem until you know what it is. Are you
someone who simply enjoys rich food, or do you “eat for a fix?” Take
the “Are You a Compulsive Overeater?” quiz at www.oa.org to find out.
6. Grazing is in fashion, but unless you have a medical condition that
demands it, three meals a day can be a godsend. When you only start
to eat three times, you only have to stop three times; and those hours
in between meals are delicious opportunities to learn how to live.
7. Minimize your intake of processed foods, especially anything made
with refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup, or white flour.
8. Eat plenty of fresh, uncooked vegetables and fruits with their full
complement of life force energy. Take a look at Raw Food Made Easy for
One or Two People, by Jennifer Cornbleet
9. Eat more of a plant-based diet: vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole
grains, and nuts and seeds. For ideas on how to do this, check out How
to Eat Like a Vegetarian Even If You Never Want to Be One, by Patti Breit-
man and Carol J. Adams.
10. If you use food for solace or comfort, find that comfort from within.
Learn to meditate, get into a yoga class that includes the philosophy
as well as the movement component, or join a support group like
Weight Watchers or Overeaters Anonymous.
