Here are 3 healthy habits to help you lose weight along with their benefits:

  1. Drink 16 ounces of water before each meal. Not only does water keep you hydrated, it makes you “feel full” and can prevent you from overeating a meal (or reaching for dessert afterwards).
  2. Rest. Multiple studies have shown that people who slept at least 7 hours at night were less likely to overeat throughout the day. A full night’s rest has also been proven to reduce stress.
  3. Plan your meals. Having a plan is critical to achieving ANY goal. It is especially important when it comes to weight loss. “Knowing” what you are going to eat and the calories/macro nutrient content of each meal will keep you on track to reach your fitness goals.
