Resolving to Lose Weight In 2015? Start NOW With This Simple Diet Tip

easy diet tips, diet tips & tricks, how to lose weight fast

Are you resolving to finally lose that unwanted weight in 2015? Don't wait until January 2015 to begin. Start now to jumpstart your new year's resolution. It serves two purposes:
  1. It gets you mentally ready to prepare for your weight loss journey.
  2. It works. You WILL lose weight. Bonus! 
This is one of the world's easiest diet tips and you won't even feel like you're dieting. You don't have to starve, over-exercise or avoid certain foods. All you have to do is this: leave two bites on your plate at lunch and dinner.

Here's How To Do It
Enjoy both lunch and dinner but leave two substantial bites on your plate during those last two meals of the day. Don't leave baby bites. Leave two solid, full-fork bites.

Simple is that. The thing is, this works.

By leaving two big bites on your plate at lunch and dinner, you will save roughly 100 calories a day (Tweet this). If you start today you can cut about 700 calories by January 5th. Not a ton, but it's a step in the right direction and helps you get ahead of the game when you start that weight loss journey for real.

Now, if you're eating spinach and broccoli for lunch and dinner, that's a different story. But if you enjoy a sandwich and chips for lunch and pasta, steak or some other big meal for dinner, this tip is for you.

A Few Calories Here & There Add Up To Serious Weight Loss
Those little caloric savings add up. If you do this every day, you will shave about 36,000 calories over the course of the year. That's 10 pounds, friends. Without even trying! If you do it only five days a week, you will lose about seven and a half pounds in a year.

Me, circa 1999, close to 200 pounds
Why am I an expert? Friends, I'm a recovering fat girl. At one point in my life, there wasn't a Golden Corral buffet I didn't love. I have lost more than 50 pounds and kept it off for a decade. Most importantly, I know how to do it while juggling work, studies, parenting and other aspects of our chaotic lives that can derail even the most dedicated dieter.

I have been there....and am fighting to the good fight every day to avoid going back there.

  1. As a gal who has always been a runner/lifter o'weights, my goals have changed over the years. In my younger days it was about aesthetics, now it's about moving strongly through life. I just wanna keep moving and being able to kick ass while doing it!

  2. Patti, that is so true! I'm right there with ya, sister....but I do want to rock that bikini. :)

  3. My daughter graduates from high school next year - I want to be proud to be in the pictures....not trying to avoid the camera.

  4. This was just what I needed to hear - thanks for sharing your story! 2015 is the year, I'm telling ya! :-)

    1. You can TOTALLY do this Tamara! I'm with ya, not against ya.

  5. This is great. It's not a lot but the fact that you're okay leaving food on the plate can actually change the way you think about food and overeating. I'm going to try this. I love it.

    1. It's a tiny change that can make a big difference. If leaving food is an issue for you, save the rest for leftovers or ask for a doggie bag. I love getting 2 meals for the price of 1. :)
