Eat Breakfast

I found that eating breakfast has aided in my weight loss. I used to NEVER eat breakfast because I was in a hurry however since taking the time to do so, I've shed weight at a more consistent loss.

Plan meals and exercise at least one day in advance

I try to plan a day or more in advance - taking into account special events that will interfere with my "normal" eating and exercise routines. That way I can figure out in advance how to work around them or compensate for them.

Eat and drink water BEFORE you are hungry and first thing in the morning!

Don't wait until you are famished to eat. When you get up in the morning start with 1 glass of water and a banana or some small food item. Thinking this way promotes small meals through out the day which is proven to help with weight loss.

Keep a food diary

I have found that I am most successful at maintaining my weight if I track my food. At first it can seem tedious but eventually you get in the habit and if you are brutally honest with yourself it really helps keep you from overeating.

No more white sugar and white flour

I was so stuck at a certain weight. I was exercising, eating within my calorie range, but as soon as I stopped white sugar and white flour I have lost six pounds, which is a lot for me, being stuck for over 5 months!

Make Small Weight Loss Goals

Instead of looking at the 100lbs you want to lose by the end of the year, make smaller goals to loose 1.5-2lbs a week. That way when you reach your goal early or on time you are more motivated to keep doing the right things.

The 400 Rule

I have used this strategy for a long time and it works for me. I eat basically 400 calories at each main meal and one 100-200 calorie snack. If your calorie allotment is higher eat three 400 calorie meals and 2-3 snacks at 100-300 calories depending on your calorie range.
