    The 9 Food Groups: The Mediterranean Diet is the Key to Weight Loss

  • l h

    alot of f'n rules-bahahaha! **1. Drink one glass of water every hour. It will make you feel full. **2. Drink ice cold water. Your body will burn calories just getting the water to a normal temperature to digest. Also it is great for your complexion. **3. Drink 3 cups of green tea daily. It will help boost your metabolism, plus its anti-oxidants make your skin look great. **4. Take vitamins daily. *Do not take vitamins on an empty stomache, otherwise they have nothing to catalyze with (and could make you’re stomach upset). 5. Eat ice or gum when hungry. This will make your body think it had food without the calories. *6. Do aerobics until you want to faint. Aerobics burns alot of calories **7. Eat spicy foods. They raise your metabolism. *8. Take cold showers because your body will burn calories to heat you back up. **9. DON’T take laxatives. They don’t help you to lose weight. Take probiotics & fiber & lots of water for healthy natural elimination for weightloss. **10. DON’T use diruretics. They only dehydrate you. Your body is retaining water b/c you’re not drinking enough water, so it is storing it. 11. Brush your teeth constantly so you won’t be tempted to eat afterwards ,or drink anything but water, so you don’t stain them. (You don’t want to eat or drink anything an hour after brushing to prevent staining) 12. Wear a rubberband around your wrist. Snap it when you want to eat. **13. Clean something gross (toilet, litter box, boyfriend’s closet) when you want to eat. You will not want to eat after cleaning a litter box. (This also helps with boredom eating-be productive and keep yourself from the snack cabinet). 14. Avoid depressed eating, do something that will make you feel pretty, have a spa party girls night at home, do your nails, take a bubble bath, get your hair done… *15. Exercise twice the amount of calories eaten. **16. Use smaller plates and utensils so it seems like you ate more. **17. Chew each bite of food thoroughly and then take a sip of water between bites. You will feel full quicker and will not eat as much. **18. Buy a hot dress that you can’t fit into & schedule a cocktail party and tell everyone you’re going to have lost “10 lbs” . Hang the dress where you can see it with an invite attached. This will motivate you to lose weight to fit into it by the party. **19. Sleep at least six hours a day. If you get less than six this can lower your metabolism by 15%. **20. If you start to feel hungry do sit-ups or jumping jacks or push ups to remind yourself to eat healthy and keep those calories down. *21. Set a reward, schedule the date you’ll reach your goal and schedule yourself a facial, get your nails done, or have a spa day. 22. Get out of your house! Don’t sit around, get up and moving, go to the mall and walk if its not nice outside. Go to the park if it is, you might make new friends with similar weightloss goals. **23. Make a inspirational scrapbook with pics of fit models. Right down all the reasons you want to lose weight. Keep track of everything you eat. Look at it daily for thin inspiration. Also add other goals too. **24. Keep good posture, burns 10% more calories when you sit up straight. **25. Pack healthy snacks (nuts, avacado, teas) & instead of fast food, buy something else, a new shirt, flowers, jewelrey etc. *26. Make a list of all the “bad” foods that you crave and tend to binge on. Each day, pick one to take out of your diet that you absolutely, no matter what, cannot eat again. Take one off the list each day until there are no more bad foods you can have. 27. Avoid alcohol! A shot of liquor has 100-120 calories, a glass of wine has 80 calories, a lite beer has 110-120 calories, and a regular beer has 140-170 calories. **28. Portion control: Never eat anything bigger than what you can cup in your hands, your stomach will expand and then you’ll get hungry more. 29. Eat in front of a mirror naked. See how much you can eat then! :0 30. The smell of coffee is suppose to supress appetite. 31. Wear perfectly applied lip gloss. It makes you more aware of what’s going in your mouth. **32. Have 6 meals (3 small meals & 3 healthy snacks) a day. Take 2 apples, and split them so you can make 6 meals out of them. This will increase your metabolisim & let your body know it dosen’t need to store food. **33. Try to keep each meals around 400 calories, this is about how much your body can process at a time, the rest will go to storage. **34. Low calorie/sugar hot chocolate curbs chocolate cravings, and makes you feel full. *35. Take a picture of yourself wearing a bathing suit or something equally revealing, look at it when you want to eat. This will also make a good before picture. * 36. It takes 20 minutes for the brain to realize the stomach is full. So, watch your portions and try to eat on a schedule. **37. Eat lots of fiber. It makes you feel full and takes fat with it out of your body. The natural cleansing helps improve both your energy level and overall feeling of wellness. 38. Before you dig into that cake, bag of chips, candy, or whatever, take a deep breath and count to 100. Usually by the time you get to 100 you will have convinced yourself that you don’t really want it. **39. Drink at least one glass of water before every meal, it will reduce overeating. 40. Celery actually burns calories. Every hour eat a stalk of it. Not only will it fill you up, but it will also get your metabolism kickin’. *41. Your weight will fluctuate, weight yourself in the morning, after youve gone to the bathroom and measure your waist too ONE time a week on the same day to track your progress. 42. Read the nutritional information. Remember, fat-free does not mean calorie-free. Also keep an eye on fiber content. Get as much fiber into your diet as you can. 43. Cutting calories over fat is most important, remeber some fat is good for you like nuts, olive oil, avacado, fish. 44. Don’t eat high fructose corn syrup, the commercials are lies, your body CAN tell a difference. **45. Don’t think you can eat that sweet snack because its sugar free, or diet coke. You are better not eating because your body doesn’t know what to do with all that fake chemical stuff, its just going to sit in you. 46. If you like to drink alcohol, you’ll like this. Make a rule: You can only drink every time you lose 2lbs. So, if you lose 4lbs a week, you can drink Friday and Saturday night. However, if you only lose 2lbs a week, you only get to drink one night. *47. Do not eat in front of the computer or TV. This distracts you from recognizing you’re full. **48. Save the money you would have spent on that “ice cream” or “Sugar special coffee drink” and put it in a jar, watch it growinstead of your waist. **49. Stay away from Slim-fast and other so-called “healthy” candy bars and shakes… one look at the nutition facts will tell you why. With all the carbs and excess calories you may as well go eat a freakin pie or something. Not to mention the rediculous prices… save yourself the money, and the calories. 50. Imagine your self as a cave-man/woman, what did they eat? Vegitables, meat, fruit, nuts…thats what your diet should consist of to have a body of a goddess. *51. An occasional binge doesn’t hurt, in fact it’s quite beneficial if you have reached a plateau (stopped losing weight). Your body will think you have stopped starving yourself, and you will drop at least a pound overnight! Just don’t binge too regularly! *52. Someone told me that if you take a pure cold bath for 15-30 min and lower your body temp, your body burns around 200 cals for every degree it has to raise itself to reach a normal body temperture.
