There are always great healthy habits that will help you lose weight and stay slim. And sometimes it’s so easy to get overwhelmed by all of the tips and tricks that are out there. But thankfully, there are just a few simple ways to keep in shape, and if you want to get there faster, then definitely try these out!

Don’t Eat When Stressed

Emotional eating is a difficult habit to break, but eating when upset, angry, or sad will lead to poor digestion and that is definitely not something skinny girls want. So leave the eating to when you’re feeling hungry.

Eat Smarter When Out

If you’re eating out, instead of choosing those greasy fries or pizza, choose a salad or a healthier entree to help you remain committed to your weight goals.

Foods Rich in Water

Consuming foods rich in water helps you to stay hydrated and feel fuller faster. Recommended foods rich in water are watermelon, celery, cucumber, and most other fruits and veggies.

Don’t Rely on Time to Eat

It’s easy to watch the clock and eat at 12:00 because that’s “lunchtime.” So instead, consider whether or not you’re actually hungry.

Get Back on Track ASAP

So, you had a cheat meal, that’s okay, really! But, in true skinny girl fashion, commit to getting back on track with your NEXT meal. Don’t procrastinate until “Monday” or “next week.”

Eat Fresh Foods

Skinny girls know that the true villain of a proper diet is processed and pre-packaged foods. So avoid eating boxed, bagged, and frozen foods that will be full of sugars and saturated fats. Cooking with fresh ingredients is always best.

Skip the Elevator

Taking the stairs instead of using the elevator is a must-do for skinny girls. Getting in those extra steps helps your body to continue burning fat and disrupts sitting for long periods of time (which usually occurs during the workdays).

Avoid Sugary Drinks

Those frappuccinos are delicious, but they’re also packed with sugar. Skinny girls avoid sugary drinks and opt for sugar-free or black when it comes to their daily coffee. And making these small changes will make a BIG change in your weight loss.

Lemon Water at Breakfast

Alongside your black coffee, try drinking lemon water to help jumpstart your metabolism. Drinking lemon water at breakfast has been shown to help aid in weight loss and burn fat.

Bring Your Own Lunch

Bringing your own lunch to work helps you avoid those impulse fast food runs during lunchtime (which you will more than likely regret later on). And it will not only be healthier but probably more delicious as well.

Don’t Watch TV and Eat

I know, I know, this is a hard one, but skinny girls know that eating while watching TV can aid in overeating. And this happens since you’re not paying attention to how much you’re putting in your mouth…you’re paying attention to that super addictive Netflix show.


If you’re wanting to lose weight more quickly, then definitely give these healthy girl habits a try and let us know how it goes! It’s so rewarding to actually see results.
