10 Skinny Techniques

Here are 10 skinny techniques that WORK. And not only do they work to help you lose weight, they are HEALTHY also. So if you are suffering from some preventable disease, they will help you out too.

1. Stop eating “diet foods”. NEVER eat pre-packaged meal plans or diet program foods. These serve to unfamiliarize you with real food, and you never learn good habits. Don’t fall victim to these horrendous scams. Eat real food.
Here is a GREAT shopping list.
Here are foods you should avoid.  And why.

2. Don’t eat breakfast the moment you wake up. Wait until you are hungry.

3. Eat carbs – in the morning. Have cereal or oatmeal with skim milk, fruit and a 4 seed mix.

4. When you are hungry, reach for a piece of fruit. Apples, plums, strawberries, melons, oranges, whatever, but no bananas for women.  Men can have bananas.

5. Have a good lunch – try a Superfood Salad or sushi. If you don’t have a decent lunch, you will screw up your whole day!

6. Don’t skip meals, just eat small portions.

7. Try and do some exercise every day for 30 minutes. Even a brisk walk is good, but I advocate an aerobics class or run for those who are more inclined. Drink a cup of coffee before your workout. Allegedly it is best to work out in the am before eating, and having coffee helps you work harder. But an evening workout is fantastic too!  (Works for me!)

8. Dinner – eat fish and vegetables. Try my Fish Pho. Experiment with variations. NEVER eat dinner and go straight to bed. Allow at least 3 hours before you retire. And NEVER eat rice or pasta for or with dinner. Carbs after 6pm make it very hard to lose weight.

9. Sleep well. Sleep is critical for metabolism and ensure you are hydrated before you sleep – green tea or water is good.

10. Everyone has to work at being skinny – there are no miracles! So stick with it, each day, every day. If you fall off the wagon, get right back on! But aim to not fall off, aim to stay on!

Love to you all!
