Stop struggling to lose that last 20 pounds! Start using these 3 tips today and within weeks you’ll look marvelous! Adapted from the Oprah Show with Bob Greene.

  1. Increase intensity and increase pace. If you have been doing aerobic activities your body has most likely gotten used to that intensity and you need to kick it up a notch. Using a treadmill is a great way to keep track of intensity and manually adjust your workout to get the best results.
  2. Burn more calories than you take in. You have to let yourself feel a little hungry. When you feel that gnawing hunger pain at night that is when your body is ready to “Eat the fat”. Do not feed your body crackers if it is ready to “eat the fat”.
  3. Exercise is not negotiable! Get rid of the “all or nothing” attitude. Decide what is right for you – how much you are willing to do, then adjust your diet. If you exercise more you have the liberty to eat more.
