The best weight loss tips (as reported by TIME Magazine) come from people who have lost and kept it off. In short:
- Be OK with slow and steady. (Remember: The tortoise won the race!)
- Pay attention to emotions and triggers and how they affect eating. This type of journaling can be more effective than simply counting calories.
- Be flexible. You will not be perfect.
- Find a way of eating that works for you and your life.
- Manage expectations. Be realistic.
