The war on obesity is piled high with casualties because “going on a diet” simply does not work in the long term.
Why go through the suffering, hunger, and deprivation to lose weight, only to slowly gain it all, or more, back?
Win the war on weight control once and for all, by following BeFit-Mom’s three “Lean for Life 80% Rules.”
Originally developed for new moms who needed practical solutions for losing extra pregnancy pounds, these simple tips can be done by anyone who wants both permanent weight loss, and a happier, healthier life.
All it takes is the ability to remember 80%
BeFit-Mom’s Lean for Life Rules:
- Serve yourself just 80% of what you would normally put on your plate.
Since everyone is susceptible to “proportion distortion” using smaller plates and bowls at every meal has a big impact over time.
- Make 80% of your daily calories high quality.
This leaves room for a small fun food, which prevents feelings of deprivation and cravings.
- Stop eating when you feel 80% full.
With this step you can leave every meal feeling satiated and proud. When was the last time you feel totally awesome after a meal?
Adopting these three easy yet powerful rules will create slow and steady weight loss without hunger, deprivation, and cravings, while developing healthy eating habits that can last lifetime. You too can be lean for life!
