Hello my loves, so forever, you know that I struggle with my weight but this July, I decided to take my health and weight seriously and as a result, I lost more than 15 lbs and I couldn’t feel happier. Sure, I have to pin up like every skirt I have but I seriously don’t mind. I see it as an accomplishment. I actually didn’t diet in the traditional sense. Instead, I chose to focus on having a healthy lifestyle where I only consumed food that was good and nourishing to my body. In the video below, I share with you all of the hacks I used in my life- from my daily detox to foods I stopped eating and even programs like OurSkinny that you can use to help you lose weight.
My metabolism was exceptionally slow so I decided to eat more foods that would help me to boost my metabolism. You should definitely incorporate some of these yummy foods in your diet!
I also try to swap out bad food for good foods. For instance, instead of using icky dips for your chips and stuff, you can use hummus which is much more wholesome and has way less calories and fats.
An easy way to make hummus is:
– 1 can chickpeas
– 2 cloves of garlic
– juice of 1/2 lemon
– 1/4 cup water
Blend everything together until you get the consistency of a paste.
Above I mentioned a company called OurSkinny which helps you to help yourself. I love programs like these because I understand being completely swamped by work and not have any time to do anything. Instead of just kicking back and using that as an excuse to binge on a ton of crap and fast food, you can supplement your diet with their shakes and protein packed bars-which are totes delicious might I add!
