We asked our Belconnen Consultant and clients for some of their top tips for the weight loss journey! Here is what they shared:
Mel struggles to consume her fruit serves so she juices or blends half a cup of raspberries, half a ruby red grapefruit and a pink lady apple, to enjoy as a smoothie.
Lisa struggles to consume her fruit serves in conjunction with drinking enough water: “One thing that helps me A LOT is adding my pomegranate fruit serve to a tall glass with mineral water and ice. It fills me up and tastes delicious!” See here from more tips on infusing your water.
Loretta struggles with motivation so asked her Consultant if she could have a photo of her. Loretta popped it on her fridge to remind her that her consultant is watching! Loretta says it is a big help and the photo stops her from going back to the fridge when she is bored.
Bek suggests to her clients to put a photo of themselves (at a previous weight they were happy with), a celebrity that they admire or an inspirational quote as their phone or computer screensaver or wallpaper or on the fridge to keep them motivated. They can then look at their phone or computer at any weak moments to keep motivated and on track. The photo on the fridge will hopefully assist in choosing healthier options from the fridge!
Bek suggests to clients who plan on drinking alcoholic beverages to compare the possible kilojoules in the alcoholic beverage to a meal. This helps clients gain perspective on just how many kilojoules are in alcoholic beverages to help them choose whether or not all those extra, non-nutritional kilojoules are really worth it. See here from more tips on managing alcohol and your weight loss plan.
Gabriella suggests to her clients to keep free foods on hand, for example Vegetable Soup or a Vegetable Stir Fry, and keep changing up the method of cooking, for example roasting vegetables instead of the usual steamed vegetables. See here for other great free food and healthy recipe ideas.
