The Weight Loss Phrase of the Day is SHOP WISELY! A friend of mine has lost 20 pounds just by changing her shopping habits. Melinda found that if she didn't have fattening food in her house, she wouldn't make a special trip to go get some. So she simply stopped buying it. Instead, she focused on fruit and veggies, lean cuts of meats and low-fat alternatives to her favorite whole foods. If she bought canned fruit, she made sure it was in water and not syrup. If she bought yogurt, she purchased the low-fat yogurt. All her soft drinks became diet drinks. She switched from whole milk to calcium added 1 percent. All these changes added up.
It's taken her nearly six months to lose the weight, but she hasn't felt deprived. "It hasn't even felt like I'm on a diet," she said.
So SHOP WISELY and see if gives your diet the boost it needs!
