Getting Started for a Healthy Weight Loss Challenge? Easy Hacks for Weight Watchers
One of the biggest struggles with losing weight is getting started with the workout plan and staying persistent with it. Let us help you prepare for the weight loss challenge with some easy hacks to help you get started.
Go shopping and get prepared
First of all, prepare a shopping list and include fresh meat and veggies in it. Also make sure to include the seasonal fruits like strawberries, bananas, blueberries, blackberries, kiwis and a watermelon. Additionally, a head of Romaine lettuce, spinach, a variety of frozen fruit, a leek, celery, a red pepper, and an onion will make a healthy addition.
Get a water bottle to check and balance the amount of drinking water. Also, buy a blender, or a magic bullet, or a shaker cup to easily make shakes.
Let your family and friends know so they can support you
Get the extra motivation to achieve your exercise goals by telling your friends and family. Get the word out. Determine how to measure success. Get on the scale; take measurements, and a picture. The most accurate way to do this, is by body fat percentage lost. Ask them if they see changes in your weight. Let them stop you from binge eating.
Water is your best friend
Losing weight fast depends deeply upon manipulating your water and sodium levels. Drink half of your body weight in ounces of water.
If you weigh 160 pounds, you should drink 80 ounces of water.
This does not include your tea or fizz tabs.
Eat every 2 1/2 to 3 hours
Diet covers up at least 80% of the challenge. Eating small, balanced meals every 3 hours boosts your body’s fat-burning potential. Snack on veggies, 8 almonds, 2 tea spoon almond butter, and a green apple on the go. Drink a fizz tab or a detox tea. But remember! Do not go more than 6 hours without a meal!
Try to stop eating before you are full. Don’t take second servings. Serve yourself a reasonable portion, then package up the rest and immediately stash it in the fridge or freezer. Choose a size-appropriate plate or bowl. If you will use a smaller plate (8- 10 inches) instead of a large square plate (12 inches or more) you will feel fuller with the same amount of food. That’s just how human psychology works!
Keep a food journal
Keeping a food diary is one of the most powerful weight-management tools. It can also be used as a tool to get an understanding of the right portion size. Writing down how much you eat, and how many calories you consume, helps you to eat more mindfully. Only weigh yourself once a week and note it down. Seriously, STAY OFF the SCALE!

One great way to track your progress with your weight loss program is to capture before and after snaps of yourself. You will be so happy and proud on the 28th Day upon witnessing the progress. Keep it in your purse as an instant motivation to continue with the challenge.
If you are constipated you need to drink more water
Cut back on the fiber, add some ground flax seed to your shake. If you feel bloated and gassy, try to incorporate more water and less fiber.
