1. Try eating breakfast within one hour of waking up.
  2. When eating do not skip meals.  If you prepare for success you will be successful. Meal success is all about eating medium proportions of whole, natural foods, that are lightly seasoned but seasoned well.
  3. Periodic intermittent fasting can be helpful for weight loss and improving mental focus,  but plan for it.  Determine when you will fast and how long during that day. Make sure you hydrated. Have a plan for healthy food and snacks to be ready for you at the end of your fasting period so you stay on track with your goals. You should talk to your doctor about what is best for you and you can find more info here: https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/intermittent-fasting-guide#benefits
  4. Stay away from adding a lot of salt and processed sugars, and unhealthy oils and fats.
  5. Only eat natural sugars from fruits. You can’t go wrong with fruits. They are nature’s candy.
  6. Only drink juice and smoothies made directly from fruit. The only way you can truly ensure this is to make your own with a juicer or blender! Use water, ice, almond milk, or coconut milk and a sweet fruit like a banana, dates, or ripe pear to make any smoothie sweet in a healthy way.
  7. Only cook with olive oil, coconut oil, or avocado oil. No. I repeat no vegetable oil or canola oil. Throw that away!
  8. Stay hydrated! Drink 4-6 16 oz bottles of water a day! In order to burn calories you must drink enough water. Dehydration slows down the fat burning process. Water flushes out the toxins and keeps your immune system strong and blood cells healthy!
  9. Stay away from processed foods. Usually anything in a bag, container, can, or bottle is a no -go.
  10. Learn to meal prep tasty and diverse meals https://sweetpeasandsaffron.com/healthy-lunch-ideas/
