Start a food journal. In the beginning you will want to write down what you eat on a given day / week to see how it is you lack in the number of servings of good” foods that you should eat and how much of the “bad” foods you eat. You can also use a food journal to record how you feel throughout the process. It can help narrow down why / when excess eating happens (ie when you sad).

Start slowly. It will take some time to eat the amount you should eat because you will not get used to it. It’s like starting any other habit-it takes time. You’ll also be eating more so it may seem like it’s going against the whole “diet” thing but eating more of the right food groups will help you lose weight as your body will be healthier-get rid of the “bad” things and give you energy to help with the rest of your diet (exercise). Continue to use a food journal to record your progress and highlight the areas you still need to work on.

Exercise. Here you’ll want to start out slowly as well. Maybe take the stairs instead of the elevator park farther away from entrances take short goes lively around your neighborhood etc. After a while you will be able to add more training weights pilates yoga cardio your routine and it will not work as such a big jump.

Tips and Warnings
