Our weight loss products are a good way to "jump start"
your weight loss. However, they are not meant to replace a healthy lifestyle. Proper
eating habits are essential in order to prevent gaining back the weight you've lost.

1) Never go to the grocery store when you are hungry.
The best time to go is right after eating.
The same applies when making out your grocery list.
2) "Spoil" your appetite.
Remember that your brain does not receive
the "I'm full" message until 20 minutes after you begin eating.
Eat a light snack 20 to 30 minutes before eating a meal.
Eat more slowly.
Drink a full glass of water before every meal.
3) Don't let your appetite "sneak up" on you.
Do not skip any meals.
Eat on a regular schedule.
Eat four to six small meals a day rather than three large meals.
4) Don't buy "junk food".
If its not in the house, you
can't eat it. That's the first step in changing your eating habits. Instead, buy a variety
of healthy foods, for both snacks and meals. Note- if you make gradual changes to your
diet, your chances of success for changing your eating habits will be much greater.
5) Avoid too much sugar.
Your body needs some sugar in
order to survive. The USDA recommends 12 tsp. for a 2,200 calorie diet. The problem
is, the average American consumes about 20 tsp. per day. No wonder that over one third of
the U.S. population is overweight!
Much of the sugar
you consume is hidden in unlikely foods. Most people know there are 10 tsp. in a can of
pop, but there are 13 tsp. in Dannon French Vanilla yogurt. Certain Quaker instant
oatmeals contain more sugar than Fruit Loops. Mott's Apple Sauce has more than a Hershey
bar, and the sugar in Campbell's beans is equal to the amount in Count Chocula cereal.
Note that in the
ingredient labels, sugar can be called corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, sugar, brown
sugar, sucrose, molasses or honey.
1) Get regular exercise.
Muscle cells burn a lot more calories that fat cells do. One pound of muscle burns about
40 calories per day. One pound of fat uses only 2 calories per day. So the more muscle you
have, the more weight you will lose. Muscle cells burn calories 24 hours a day, even when
you are asleep. That's why a physically fit person can eat the same amount of food as
someone who is overweight, and yet still lose weight.
The best time to exercise
is early in the day, as this gives your metabolism an early boost. (See your doctor before
beginning any exercise or weight loss program.)
2) Eat more often.
Many persons who have lost
weight eat 5 small meals per day, rather than 3 large ones. This method helps to keep your
appetite from getting out of control. Also, it helps to speed up your metabolism, since
your body burns more calories while digesting food. In fact, 10 percent of the calories
you burn each day is spent on digesting your food.
3) Drink cold
The colder the better. By
doing this, your body has to work harder to maintain its core temperature of 98.6 degrees,
and will burn more calories in the process.
