Do The Little Things To Lose Weight

Don't forget the little things to help you lose weight.

It is important to do cardio exercise and strength training on a regular basis. And no one would argue that "you are what you eat." Sixty to seventy percent of your exercise goal's success or failure will be due to nutrition.

Sometimes, it's the little things that destroy our eating goals for the day. Here's some ideas to help you keep your eating habits in control:

2) Eat your food on a plate, not in a bag or jar. It helps you eat less.
3) Eat with a purpose---DON'T JUST GRAZE.
4) Eat at least 2 servings of a fruit or veggie at every meal.
5) Don't assume that LOW-FAT means LOW-CAL---Read the Label.
6) Speaking of fats, eat mainly "heart-healthy" unsaturated fats.
8) Skip the side orders like french fries and bread sticks.
9) If it's fried, let it slide!
10) Skip the meal appetizers unless they are low calorie.
11) Skip dessert, eat a small portion or split it with someone.
12) Eat until you are full, not stuffed (take a doggy bag).

I'm sure you could come up with dozens of these nutrition examples yourself. The little things do add up fast and they become nutritional habits---good or bad!
