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?

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.

“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.
