Stay Hydrated: Water is essential for healthy weight loss. Not only does top trainer Chris Powell suggest drinking warm water in order to stay full, but research has shown that drinking 16 ounces of water before meals is proven to help with weight loss. While this is a great habit, be sure to refill your water bottle throughout the day, or if you don't get up that often, set an alarm to remind yourself to drink.
The Mayo Clinic Healthy Weight Pyramid is a tool to help you lose weight or maintain your weight. The triangular shape shows you where to focus when selecting healthy foods. Eat more foods from the base of the pyramid and fewer from the top.
