  • Make over your environment
  • Gather your support
  • Exercise your right to move
  • Learn to eat light home and away
  • Learn to handle temptation

One of the diehard keys to being successful with weight loss is keeping track of everything you eat. Something else you will learn in this book is eating for good health rather than eating for weight loss. When you eat for good health, you can maintain that eating style for the rest of your life. Bensen provides a grocery list full of guilt-free items that includes everything from snacks and produce to dairy items. There are several recipes included in the book.

EXERCISE

Including exercise in your goals to lose weight is very important. It is possible to lose weight without exercise, but exercise offers many benefits other than weight loss. Exercising will help you tone your body and reshape it as you lose weight. Exercise can also make a big difference on the heart, muscles, lungs and the brain. Exercising also comes with the benefit of adding calories to your diet so that you can properly fuel your body. Both cardio and strength training are recommended with Finally Thin! If you don’t like to exercise, start with small commitments and work your way up, but make it part of your new healthy lifestyle.
