Lose Weight in the Kitchen

Add caption
It is important to understand the food, body, mind connection when discussing healthy living.  Many times we assume that if we exercise regularly, we will lose weight. Not true! Most of us need to modify our diet at least moderately to truly see results. Here are 3 of my favorite quick and easy tips to get started:
1. Drink plenty of water: Need one good reason? It boosts your metabolism!
2. Avoid refined foods: Trade in your Cheez-Its for some baby carrots.  C'mon, they're both orange...and crunchy!
3. Stop overeating: Portion control can be tedious, I know, but with a little creativity you can do it. Example: 1 cup (frequent measurement for serving size) is usually about the size of your fist!
