Just because something is "low-fat" doesn't mean it's "low-calorie". Burning more calories than you take in is what causes weight loss, so double check the label.

So you know water is the best choice for hydration, but you don't like the taste of it... try adding slices of lemon, lime, orange, strawberries, cucumber, fresh mint, or even cubes of watermelon, cantaloupe, of honeydew to your water bottle for a touch of flavor.

Keep meaning to pack lunch rather than eating out but never seem to have the time? Next time you cook dinner, cook double the portions and take the leftovers.

Replace your morning glass of juice with a piece of fruit and glass of water instead. Fruit contains more fiber than the juice, and it will leave you feeling more full in fewer calories.

Studies have shown those who regularly partake in the habit of eating with their less-dominant hand have been successful with their weight loss goal. Picking up a fork with the other hand tends to slow down the eating process, and thus makes you focus on your meal.

When eating a salad, keep in mind that creamy salad dressings like Ranch and Caesar have 75 calories and 8 grams of fat per tablespoon! Balsamic vinegar has only 15 calories and no fat. Making this small change can save you upwards of 120 calories and 16 grams of fat per salad!

When trying to lose weight, keep in mind that you don't necessarily have to eat less, you should just be taking in fewer calories. By replacing your usual high calorie foods with lower calorie options (ex. fruits and vegetables), you won't be left still feeling hungry at the end of your meal.

Eat many different colors of fruits and vegetables. Different colored foods have different types of nutrients, and it's important to have a wide variety.

Eat until you've had enough, not until you feel stuffed. You'll know the difference.
