DIET and NUTRITION

Dr. Jo’s No Big Deal Diet encourages you to set your own rules when it comes to healthy eating. By setting your own rules she means, devising a healthy eating plan that accommodates your lifestyle, weight loss goals and your relationship to food.

Dr. Jo has numerous tips to help deal with the emotional eater, the person who is too busy to eat and ends up gorging at night, the person who turns to food for non-hunger reasons.

In general, you are encouraged to monitor what and how much you eat through a food journal; eat breakfast; determine what your calorie needs are and stick to them in order to lose weight.

Healthy eating and living tips include finding other enjoyable activities to do other than drinking and eating, waiting for ten minutes before giving in to a food craving, finding a healthy substitute for high calorie and high fat favorite food and using positive thinking to help you achieve your health goal.

EXERCISE

Dr. Jo’s No Big Deal Diet strongly recommends as a way to lose weight and boost confidence.

Tips for exercising include finding a physical activity you enjoy doing and making a habit out of doing it regularly, always keeping a exercise DVD on hand at home for the days when weather and time prevent you from working out at the gym or outside, hire a physical trainer and keep an exercise diary to monitor your progress.

A combination of cardiovascular exercise, which provides an immediate boost to metabolism, and strength training, which works to develop muscles all-day long, are both strongly encouraged as part of Dr. Jo’s No Big Deal Diet exercise plan.
