Change slowly.

You might want to change everything at once, but that strategy usually doesn’t work very well. Instead, improve your diet a little each week. This method will be easier to stick with and you’ll have a healthy diet before you know it.

Drink water.

I do this personally. I drink water with every meal. I can't tell you how many pounds I've kept off my body due to this.

Juices are often high in sugar or chemical sweeteners. Diet drinks are questionable from a health standpoint. Give your body the water it craves and it will reward you with better health – all the way down to the cellular level.

An added plus: drinking plenty of water helps keep you from consuming excess calories, too. If you're hungry, drink 8-16 ounces of water first. Then eat.

Make your lunch. Take your lunch.

This is a biggie and where most people put on the pounds.

Most of the things that are available in restaurants are just not very healthy. Even if you try, it's still a lot of calories and the pounds WILL add up.

It also can be challenging to order a salad when your coworkers are ordering bacon cheeseburgers. You will be healthier and save money if you make your lunch and take your lunch.

Disclosure: I make my own lunch each and every day. Takes 2-3 minutes. I'd be much larger in the waistline if I didn't do this.

 

Make your own dinner too.

Same story. The more you eat out, the larger your waistline will be - even with your best effort to eat healthy.

Cooking your own dinner at home does not have to be hard either. I start and finish in 15-30 minutes generally. Simple. Very tasty. Yum!

There are so many recipes online that can be prepared quickly and affordably.

You'll also be SAVING A LOT OF MONEY over the long term. It's expensive to eat out all the time. Even fast food garbage adds up to $$.

Make this deal...

At the outset, learn to substitute bad food with good food slowly.

1 - If you buy one box, bag or serving of junk food, you MUST also buy one serving of a healthy snack you will both enjoy and eat (fruit, nuts, fiber or protein bar, etc...).

2 - If you want to eat the junk food, you must finish the healthy snack first.

Once a week increase the proportions.

Example:

week 2 - for every 1 serving of junk food, you must finish 2 servings of a healthy snack.
week 3 - for every 1 serving of junk food, you must finish 3 servings of a healthy snack.
