Weeks 1 to 10

Make exercise a regular part of your day

Guidelines:
There are so many opportunities where you can do exercise, and many people don't use them. Look for these opportunities throughout your day, and goal for any type of exercise to do for at least 45 minutes. Do this once in the morning, and once in the evening.

Weeks 1 to 10

Writing Down Your Food Intake

Guidelines:
I think, writing down what you eat is important, when i first started doing this, it was in February of 2010. It amazed me how much each calorie was, and how easy it was to reach a high number. Being aware of what you eat can help dramatically, and eventually becomes part of who you are, and does not become a bother. Write down all the foods you eat, and make sure to see how each food affects your digestive system, and your mood, and filling factor. If you were to eat 100 calories for a chocolate, or 100 calories for an apple, try and realize which makes you fuller, and you can begin to learn better eating habits.

Weeks 1 to 10

Cheating

Guidelines:
cheating is a very complicated thing to try and understand. it sometimes can ruin a diet, and other times help it. I wouldn't suggest making cheating an everyday habit, as that's what usually makes diets go awry. but i think allowing a once a week, not more than 100-200 calorie cheating allowance would be ok. but- if you want to cheat, know that there are some circumstances. For Every 100 calories that you cheat, you need to do an extra half hour of exercise to burn it off. Because, cheating is not a good benefit, and exercise does release endorphins, so you'd be happy either way :D

Weeks 1 to 10

No Eating After 8:00 PM

Guidelines:
For some people, who have holidays, this may be impossible, so, if you must eat after 8 pm, eat very lightly, and very sparingly, try and eat a big meal before, so you will not be as hungry, when it comes to eating late. For others, Do not eat after 8, as that is usually when people eat out of boredom, or as midnight binging, and that ruins diets as well.
