4 ESSENTIAL WEIGHT LOSS TIPS
Wanna know what the most powerful thing you can do for your weight loss right now is? It’s the first thing you should do, long before buying a gym membership or a diet plan. First thing is first, you need to learn how to-
1. Be Straight with Yourself. To take an honest, no-holds barred look at the way you are living your life. What you are eating, how much you are eating, what type of exercise you are getting, and how much. Also, you need to learn how to properly set your weight loss goals.
Okay, back to what I was saying…
It’s critical for you to assess where you are at right now.
This is the first thing I ask my clients before I even ask them what their weight loss goals are. Over the next Biotox few days, write down exactly what you are eating.

Having this Point A is critical to understanding what kind of changes you need to make to your life. Often having our past behavior written out in front of us makes it seem more real to us, and it also gives you the opportunity to take a more objective perspective of what your diet and fitness routine looks like.
2. Don’t Be Afraid to Plan. Many people fall back into their old habits because it is convenient and comfortable.
Look, eating properly is not going to a cinch. But it can be easy to manage your food prep time (and even save you a butt-ton of money) if you plan ahead.

3. Log and Monitor Your Diet and Exercise. This is my favorite tip, and is something that many trainers don’t talk about. (Yes, even some of the trainers at my home gym. Sigh.) Not only does it take only a couple minutes per day to update, but it is a powerful motivational tool to be wielded on those days when you feel your motivation sagging.
