Cut 120 Calories Daily with Ziplock Bags
  1. Set Realistic and Tangible Goals - Simply stating that you want to lose weight is not effective. Be specific. For example, I want to lose 5 pounds of fat by February 14th.
  2. Measure Your Progress - Take your base measurements and then re-take them on a regular basis. You cannot measure your progress if you have no idea where you started from.
  3. Log Your Workouts - Each and every workout session should be logged. Keep all of your fitness logs in a binder and create your very own success journal.
  4. Mix Up Your Cardio Workouts - Cardio sessions should vary in intensity and in length. Try new Cardio activities and keep things fresh.
  5. Strength Training Is Not Just For Men - Everyone should strength train. Strength training builds muscle and increases bone density. Lean muscle also burns more fat. Train all major muscle groups 1-3 times per week.
  6. Rest - Try to get 7-9 hours of deep sleep each and every night. Also rest your muscles by not working out 1-2 days each week.
  7. Warm Up - Warm up for 5-10 minutes before every workout session. You should feel a rise in your body temperature and your heart rate.
  8. Cool Down - 10 minute cool down by stretching out your entire body. This helps increase flexibility and decrease muscle soreness the next day.
  9. Nutrition Is Half the Battle - Nutrient rich meals. Eating small meals throughout the day complements your fitness routine. Learn to eat healthy and kick diets out of you life forever.
  10. Stay Motivated - Find a workout partner. Work with a personal trainer. Do whatever it takes to remain committed. If you falter, let go of guilt and get back on your routine as soon as possible. Why do you think trainers have trainers?

Always consult your physician before starting any new exercise/personal training program.

Is a box of plastic sandwich bags all you need to easily shave 120 calories from each day? Research suggests it may be so.

As long as you use those bags to divide up your snacks -- be they nuts, pretzels, crackers, or popcorn -- into small servings. About 100 calories per bag. In a recent study, people whose snacks came prepackaged in low-calorie portions ate about 120 fewer calories each day compared with folks who munched from larger packages.

Mini-Snack Strategy
More and more research has shown that when people are presented with large servings of food, they typically don't know when to say when. The larger the serving size offered, the more people tend to eat, going so far as to completely empty an overloaded plate or jumbo snack bag even though they'd feel satisfied with a smaller portion. So when you make an effort to eat less and slim down, keep in mind that it really starts with your serving spoon, not your dinner fork. (Here's another important way you can set the scene for self-control in the kitchen.)

Don't Supersize Me
Divvying up snacks into little bags is one strategy for controlling the munchies. You could also make it a habit of serving yourself snacks in a small bowl or on a plate rather than eating from the bag or the box. Measure out a reasonable portion, and leave the package or container in the kitchen. For chocolates, cookies, or candies, stick them in the freezer and thaw only one portion at a time. Better yet, you can put together a week's worth of your own healthful, homemade 100-calorie snacks. Try making these quick at-home snacks.
