When I asked a young woman who had lost 200 pounds how she did it, she said that she treated weight loss like a job. No matter how she felt, she showed up. She showed up at the grocery store to buy the right food, she showed up to track her food, she showed up to walk, etc.
Hunger isn't necessarily for food!
Not only is drinking a minimum of 64 oz. of water essential to weight loss, squeezing a lemon into about 32 oz. a day can lead to excellent benefits. Lemons are very high in vitamin C, magnesium, calcium, and potassium. Drinking lemon water will help stimulate and filter your liver and kidneys. You'll reap the benefits by losing more weight and having a better complexion. You can also fight colds and the flu more effectively!!!!
When focusing on losing the fat, the weight will follow. It is the fat that is unhealthy on our bodies. Even thin people can carry too much fat if they do not exercise, and this as we all know leads to hypertension etc...
To get over the plateau and keep your metabolism reved up.
