Random Weight Loss Tips

- Drink a half gallon of water or so a day (one ounce for every pound you weigh)

- "Dip the Tip" instead of dunking your food in fatty sauces or dressings, dip the tip of your fork in the goop first, before putting the fork into your food. You'll get the flavor without all the fat.

- "A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips." Stay conscious of what you are consuming before it consumes you.

- Eat some fruit first thing in the morning, before anything else. It digests faster and by having it first you take the edge off the hunger and so it doesn't just sit on a pile of goop in your stomach fermenting for hours. Learn to combine (or separate) foods for maximum benefit and acid/alkaline balance.

- Eat less processed foods. If you are on Weight Watchers, give the core plan a try.

- Don't drink your calories. Drink mostly water and green tea. Switch to skim milk and be a designated driver.

- Lay off the pop and sweetened drinks. Diet soda is full of artificial sweeteners which they are finding may have the same addictive qualities as sugar and make you crave sweets. Instead of substituting, train your tastebuds to like things less sweet so you are not craving so much.
