I’ve been gaining and losing weight over and over again over the last 15 years. This growing older has resulted in a metabolic rate is equal to that of a deep nap. Long gone are the days when I could come home from school and eat 6 bowls of corn flakes and not gain a single pound. It seems now if I eat one extra bowl of cereal in a week I have to run out and buy pants in a larger size. Over the years as I’ve dropped weight, I’ve discovered a few tricks that have helped me without all the stress that comes with sticking to a stricter than strict diet.
Not everything I’ve done will work for everyone, and none of the tips are major revelations or giant life changing events. But what I’ve found is that if I follow these few little adjustments I’ve discovered over the years, the weight comes off faster and I have a tendency to stick to the regiment for a longer period of time.
