Weight Loss Tipsl Eat at least three times per day.l Pay attention to your body. When you feel like you have had enough to eat,stop. Quit before you feel full, stuffed or sick from eating. You can have more ifyou are really hungry.l If you still feel hungry or unsatisfied after a meal or snack, wait at least10 minutes before you have more food. Often, the craving will go away.l Drink plenty of calorie-free drinks (water, tea, coffee, diet soda). You may bethirsty, not hungry.l Pick lean meats, low-fat or nonfat cheese, and skim (nonfat) or 1% fat milkinstead of higher-fat/higher-calorie choices.l Get plenty of fiber. Vegetables, fruits and whole grains are good sources.Have a high-fiber cereal every day.l Cut back on sugar. For example, drink less fruit juice and regular soda.l Limit the amount of alcohol (beer, wine and liquor) that you drink.l Keep all food in the kitchen. Eat only in a chosen place, such as at the table.Don’t eat in the car or the bedroom or in front of the TV.l Drink a glass of water before you eat. Drink more during meals.l Use smaller plates, bowls, glasses and serving spoons.l Do not put serving dishes on the table.

Exercise RegularlyPhysical activityYour weight is a result of the balance between the foods you eat and the amount of caloriesyour body burns in physical activity. As you lose weight, you may find it much easier to getaround. The more active you are, the more quickly you will lose weight! Ask your doctor beforebeginning any strenuous program.GoalYour goal should be to get about 150 to 250 minutes of moderate-intensity activity each weekon top of your daily activity (that’s about 30 to 50 minutes, 5 days per week).What is moderate-intensity exercise?Moderate-intensity exercise is where you feel like you are working “somewhat hard”. Yourheart may be beating faster and you might be sweating. You should still be able to talk, butyou probably will not be able to sing. Examples of moderate-intensity exercise are: jogging,brisk walking, biking, stair climbing and fitness classes.10 TBHC’S WEIGHT LOSS CENTER, 718.250.8920
Start wherever you are!You do not need to start out with 30 minutes a day. Start wherever you are! If you can walk for5 minutes without pain, then start with 5 minutes and increase by a few minutes each week.Try some of these suggestions to increase your physical activity:lWalk whenever you can. Walk the dog, go for a walk with a friend or family member,take a walk during your lunch break, get off the subway or bus one stop early.lTake the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator.lPark your car far away at shopping centers and walk through the parking lot.lTake a “walking break” at work instead of a coffee break.lDo some yard work, gardening or household chores that require brisk movement.lWhen it’s cold or rainy, get exercise indoors at malls, the gym or inside your own home.llLook for easy and fun new ways of exercising. Make a list of fun and exciting classes youmight take, such as Zumba or water aerobics.Search for exercise videos online, or check some out from the library, NetflixTM or RedboxTM.Common obstacles“I HAVE KNEE/BACK/FOOT PAIN.” Try non-weight bearing exercises like swimming, cycling orchair exercises, or talk to your doctor about getting a referral for physical therapy.“I DON’T HAVE TIME.” Look at your daily schedule and see if you can identify any activitiesthat could be cut down, modified or delegated to someone else. If you take a bus to thesubway every morning, see if you can walk instead. If you like to watch TV at night, try joggingin place or lifting light weights during the show, or try some of the strategies listed above tosqueeze in exercise, 10 minutes at a time, throughout the day.“I WALK ALL DAY AT WORK.” This is great, but chances are you are not getting your heart rateup during these daily activities and even if you are, your body has adjusted to this level ofactivity. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity on top of your daily routine.TBHC’S WEIGHT LOSS CENTER, 718.250.8920 11
Choose Your Beverages WiselyAdequate fluid intake is important for maintaining normal body function. Being properlyhydrated helps relieve fatigue, flushes out toxins and waste, prevents constipation, promoteshealthy skin, and aids in weight loss.Your goal is a minimum of 8 cups (64 ounces) of low-sugar fluids every day.This includes:lWaterlWater infused with fresh fruitlCoffee, tealFat free or 1% milk (Lactaid milk if lactose intolerant)lUnsweetened soy milk, almond milk, rice milk, cashew milk, coconut milklSugar-free flavored drinkslZero-calorie sport drinkslSeltzer waterAvoid beverages that contain sugar (even unsweetened fruit juice). Read the Nutrition Factslabel for sugar content!5 tips to help you drink moreIf you think you need to be drinking more, here are some tips to increase your fluid intake andreap the benefits of water:1. Have a beverage with every snack and meal.2. Choose beverages you enjoy; you’re likely to drink more liquids if you like the way they taste.3. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Their high water content will add to your hydration.About 20% of our fluid intake comes from foods.4. Keep a bottle of water with you in your car, at your desk or in your bag.5. Choose beverages that meet your individual needs. If you’re watching calories, go fornon-caloric beverages or water.TBHC’S WEIGHT LOSS CENTER, 718.250.8920 13

Food PreparationlllllPlan meals ahead of time.Try cooking methods that cut calories: Cook without adding fat (bake, broil, roast, boil). Use nonstick cooking sprays instead of butter or oil. You can also use wine, broth orfruit juice instead of oil when cooking. Use low-calorie foods instead of high-calorie ones when possible.Cook only what you need for one meal (don’t make leftovers).If you do make extra portions, put them away as soon as possible so you can save themfor other meals. Store the leftovers in containers that you can’t see through.Cook when you are not hungry. For example, cook and refrigerate tomorrow’s dinner afteryou have finished eating tonight.lMake fruits, vegetables and other low-calorie foods part of each meal.lDrink water while you cook.lDecrease portion sizeslPut less food on your plate.lPut all extra food away before eating; this makes it harder to go back for seconds.lUse a smaller plate to make it look like you are eating more food.lMeasure out your portions.lPractice leaving something on your plate.16 TBHC’S WEIGHT LOSS CENTER, 718.250.8920
SnackingSnacking can be part of your plan for healthy weight loss. You can eat six times per day as longas you plan what to eat and don’t eat too many calories.llPlan ahead.

Eating and EmotionsDo you eat to deal with feelings other than hunger, such as boredom, being tired or stressed?If you eat for these reasons, here are some other things you can try:lCall a friend for support.lUse inspirational quotes to help you avoid the temptation to eat.lTake a warm bath or shower.lListen to music or a relaxation CD.lTake a walk.lTry activities that keep you from eating. For example, it’s hard to eat while you’re exercising.If you are cleaning your home, you probably won’t eat while your hands are busy. Mindful EatingSuperhighways, express lanes, instant messaging, fast food, instant credit, drive-throughrestaurants and microwaves—perpetual motion is the modern way of life. We race from onetask to the next, barely aware of what we are doing in the present—including eating.Have you ever sat down with a bag of chips in front of the television and become so engrossedin what was going on that you only realized you were eating when your hand scraped thebottom of the bag? Would you know if the meal you were served were made from vegetablespulled right from the ground or from veggies frozen three years ago? Do you think abouthow your stomach feels before you eat and as you progress through a meal? All of theseconsiderations are components of mindful eating, or being aware of your food and your bodywhile you eat. Mindful eating means eating with complete awareness. It involves beingpresent in the moment.Whether you are preparing for weight loss surgery, preparing for lifelong weightmanagement after weight loss surgery, or just want to tackle weight loss without surgery,here are some tools for developing mindful eating skills.20 TBHC’S WEIGHT LOSS CENTER, 718.250.8920
Mindful Eating TipsSlow downlSet a timer. Plan to take 30 minutes for a meal. Aim to eat half of your meal by the15-minute mark.lChew each bite 20 to 25 times.lPut your fork or spoon (or chopsticks) down between each bite.lEat with chopsticks or a baby spoon to get smaller bites.lAllow 30 minutes for mealtimes.lTry eating with smaller forks and spoons, or even chopsticks, and set them down in betweeneach bite.lTake small bites and chew food to a liquid consistency before swallowing.lSavor each bite. Pay attention to flavors, textures and consistency.Notice your foodTo notice your food, ask yourself:lWhat are the colors of each food?lWhat is the texture of each food?lWhat are the smells?lWhat does the food feel like in my mouth?lHow does the food taste? Salty? Bitter? Starchy? Rich?lWhich bite is most enjoyable?Decrease distractionslEat in only one place at home and only one place at work, not your desk!lTurn off the television and talk radio.lClose your eyes while you eat each bite to fully notice the taste, smell and feel.lJournal about any distressing thoughts before you sit down to eat.Set them aside after you have written them down.TBHC’S WEIGHT LOSS CENTER, 718.250.8920 21
Notice your bodylHow do you feel before you eat? How can you tell you are hungry? What sensations do youexperience?lNotice how you feel after each bite.lHow can you tell when you are full and satisfied?lBefore each bite, ask yourself, “Do I really want this next bite, or am I mindlessly eating itbecause it is in front of me?”Make eating its own activitylChoose a spot at home just for eating, like the dining room or kitchen table.lMake a rule to sit whenever you put something in your mouth.llAvoid doing other activities while eating. Don’t watch TV, check email or play with yourcellphone.Pay attention to how you feel before and after eating. Were you hungry before you ate?Plan aheadllPlan what and how much you will be having for each meal and snack.Bring water and meals with you to school and work. Pack it the night before so you won’tbe rushed.Try activities that you can do instead of eatingllMake a list of 20 things you like to do or would like to try that don’t involve food and trythem out.Notice why you eat. Do you tend to eat when you are upset, anxious, depressed or bored?If so, then try music, a hot bath or shower, take a walk, do yoga, meditation or another formof relaxation.22 TBHC’S WEIGHT LOSS CENTER, 718.250.8920
