10 Weight Loss Tips From Girls Who Have Lost At Least 50 Pounds

Trick Your Sweet Tooth

After a cancer diagnosis sent her normally healthy lifestyle off-course, flight attendant Tracey Z. Dickson was heavier than she had ever been.

When she was declared cancer-free, she hopped back on the treadmill and got her diet in order—and went from 158 pounds to 117. One of her diet secrets?

“Instead of dessert, I’ll have a baked sweet potato sprinkled with cinnamon,” she says. “It tastes like I’m eating sweet potato pie, but for a ton less calories.”

Keep a Toothbrush Handy

This snack-busting tip comes from Tricia Minnick, who lost a whopping 128 pounds by cutting soda and processed carbs from her diet, filling half her plate with veggies at every meal, and brushing her teeth after eating.

“It’ll help stop night snacking,” she says. “Fresh breath makes you less tempted to eat more.” Wise up on other ways to stop mindless snacking with these tips.

Stock Up on Frozen Veggies

Think cooking healthy meals is difficult and time-consuming?

Think again. Annie Allen, a postsurgical nurse in Tampa Bay, Florida, let her freezer do half the work for her—and now she’s down 52 pounds and runs about 10 races a year.

“Frozen vegetables are as nutritious as fresh ones, and in minutes you have half of your meal prepared,” she says.

These frozen meals are also surprisingly healthy if you don’t have time to mix and match one of your own.
