drink a lot of water. get enough sleep. I know they seem obvious, but it's something we as teachers easily sacrifice without realizing that weight gain is connected.

My Dr. said to limit carbs to 100g per day and get 50g of protein. I also found a resting metabolic rate calculator online which stated that mine is so low at 1359 so if I want to lose weight my calories need to be less than that! I took the time (about 3 hours!) to plan a weeks worth of meals and snacks at 1200 calories (watching the carbs and protein too) and lost 4 lbs!

Keto. No carbs no sugar. Lost over 30lbs . Also intermittent fasting a few days a week for at least 16 hours. Good luck!

I keep individual packets of trail mix and mixed nuts at my desk. Some of my favorite things to pack are hard boiled eggs, cottage cheese, fruit, I also love “Well Yes” Poblano and Corn sipping soup

Cut our simple carbs, soda and sugar. That’ll do it.
