1. Put health before weight loss. Make healthy food choices when you are trying to lose weight. Fad diets and low-calorie diets fail so why not eat healthier and reach your goal feeling better every day?
2. Set realistic goals. Break the goal you are trying to accomplish into little goals and concentrate on achieving each little goal until you have reached your big goal.
3. If you can’t ELIMINATE banned foods from your list LIMIT them. Limiting your intake in portion or frequency will avoid the feelings of deprivation.
