Don’t take on too much: Don’t change ev­ery­thing at once, oth­er­wise you will get over­whelmed and some­thing will have to give! Start with the eas­i­est things, like drink­ing more wa­ter and eat­ing good real food and then add on more changes from there.

Food is not the en­emy: There is no good and bad food (this of course doesn’t in­clude peo­ple who have al­ler­gies) and you don’t have to cut things out of your menu and never eat the things you en­joy again. Get­ting healthy and los­ing weight is about creat­ing a healthy re­la­tion­ship with food.

Eat real food: Try to make sure that the ma­jor­ity of what you eat is made up of real food and not things that are made in a fac­tory or come in a box or packet. Your body will thank you for it.

Build a sup­port net­work: Do you have friends or fam­ily mem­bers that want to get healthy too? Ask them to join a class with you and host healthy eat­ing get to­geth­ers where ev­ery­one brings a healthy dish. Hav­ing like­minded peo­ple around you will make stick­ing with it that lit­tle bit eas­ier.

Ex­er­cise doesn’t have to be a chore: If you re­ally, re­ally hate run­ning or go­ing to a gym – don’t force your­self to do it. Not ev­ery­one is a run­ner and not ev­ery­one en­joys it. Find an ac­tiv­ity that you en­joy and you will want to keep do­ing it. Danc­ing is nor­mally a good place to start, as it is fun.
