Quick Tip

If you want to add something to your drinks and food that keeps your skin looking younger, repairs your body (after working out), AND gives you energy throughout the day, then I would seriously recommend collagen protein powder which you can check out here.

ALSO, this brand is specifically great since it’s flavorless (which is awesome since I hate adding things that make my favorite drinks and food taste horrible). So I would definitely check it out here and see how you feel and look after using it for a little while.


Downsizing your dinnerware is proven to reduce your food intake. Larger plates always lead to more consumption, unlike smaller plates where you can only eat smaller portions.

Find Ways to Motivate Yourself

Don’t Drink Your Calories

Soft drinks are obviously bad, but have you ever wondered how much sugar is in fruit juice?

Well, it’s been shown that calories, that come from sugar in liquid form, maybe one of the worst things in our diets in this modern age. So consume fruits but try to avoid juices as much as you can.

Pre-Plan Snacks

Pre-plan and pack your snacks and put them in places where you’ll need them when hunger strikes (your car, your drawer in your workspace, etc.).

Slice up some fruits and vegetables and put them in the fridge. Nuts and seeds are also a healthy alternative to potato chips.

Journaling Instead of Eating

Let go of the things that bother you! There are many ways to do this but a well-known way is to journal.

Journaling is a great way to reduce stress levels as it allows you to turn to something else other than eating during stressful times.

Make Healthy Food Easily Accessible

Stock your pantry with healthy foods and try to cook meals for yourself as much as you can. But avoid dining out since a recent study revealed that eating out increases your calorie intake by 134 Calories!

There Might Be Something Better than Green Tea

A fermented Chinese brew called, Pu-Erh, is known to reduce triglyceride levels. It might be a good alternative to have in the morning instead of a creamy sugary coffee.
