Like these simple tips you can start doing today:
Whatever you do, don’t do a detox or cleanse.
“They can potentially wreak havoc on your body and be very unhealthy. Be wary of products that promote weight loss after a ‘7-day detoxification’ or a ’30-day colon cleanse.’ Marketers strategically construct these products and sell people on the notion that they’ll somehow become healthier, thinner, happier, and more attractive after using such products. My overarching mantra: A consistently healthy, well-balanced diet is the best ‘cleanse.'”
—Nita Sharda, RD, owner of Carrots and Cake Balanced Nutrition Consulting
Try not to make all your work breaks snack-based.
“Lots of people like to take a break from work by getting up to grab a snack, not necessarily because they feel hungry but just because they need to step away from their desk for a bit. Instead of eating when you’re not hungry, get up, have some water, and say hello to a co-worker on the way back. You’ll de-stress and forget about the snack you didn’t really want in the first place.”
