Secrets to Ultimate Weight Loss
Losing weight is tough when you’re used to eating addictive foods like sugar and added fats. You have to rework your regular diet to make any noticeable progress.

One of the off putting things about dieting is hunger. Fruits and vegetables are highest in nutrients and lowest in caloric value.

The keys to ultimate weight loss include:

  • Commitment. Stick to your plan.
  • Compliance. Follow the guidelines you set for your weight loss.
  • Consistency. Take the correct actions every day.
  • Cooking. Prepare your own nutritious and filling meals.
  • Change. It must be more painful to remain the same than to put in the work to lose weight.
  • Community. Connect with people who support your choices and live healthy lives.
  • Compassion. Don’t beat yourself up as you work on yourself.
Start small. Add more fruits and vegetables to your diet. Walk a few more minutes every day. It adds up and can inspire you to make bigger changes.

Listen as Chef AJ joins Dr. Pamela Peeke to share secrets for successful weight loss.
