My health tips

Disclaimer: I'm not a dietitian or anything like that. This is just what works for me :)
  • No soda - I've never been an avid soda drinker, we never keep soda in the house. The only time I drink soda is at a fast food restaurant or maybe a house party.
  • Rarely eat out - I never go out to eat because 1) I find it too expensive and 2) I always eat too much when I do. I go out to eat maybe 2-3 times a month, including fast food.
  • Vitamin C every other day - I have a weak immune system, and I tend to get sick quite a bit, so this just gives me a little boost.
  • Drink water when you feel hungry - Most of the time when I think I'm hungry, I'm just thirsty or bored. Buy a water bottle and carry it around. It'll really help.
  • Bananas! - They aren't my favorite fruit, but they're definitely good; I tend to eat one every day.
  • Stay away from pre-packaged food - This includes hot pockets, pizza rolls, frozen meals, basically anything in a plastic bag that you have to heat up. And chips (well I'm still working on cutting this out hahaha).
  • Nuts - If I'm ever hungry and it's not meal time yet, I just grab some nuts as a little snack to keep my hunger down. I usually buy almonds cause they're the cheapest... I also buy dried fruits too (so yummy).
  • Exercise - I've been slacking on this lately. Mainly I look up videos on youtube or run on the treadmill for 20 minutes (I hate running ok) every other day.
  • Park your car far away - When you're out shopping, don't park close to the store, park far far away and walk. Bonus: it'll probably be easier to find a parking spot.
This is how I lost about 8 pounds. You're probably like oh wow that's not a whole lot, but if I did lose more, I would be underweight and I'm not really going for that look. I hoped this helped anyone who decided to read! Click here for a picture of my oh so dramatic weight loss lol


  1. This is actually really helpful, since you pay attention to the little details. Props to you! x
