Happy Friday the 13th everyone! I trust you’ll be getting outside and doing something exciting this weekend.
I thought I’d share a few simple weight loss tools I learned this week hoping to send you off for the weekend on the right foot.
- Surely you remember that apples are full fiber (among other wonderful things). Due to this fact, research has shown that if you eat an apple every day before lunch, on an average you’ll eat 187 fewer calories at lunch, generating a loss of five pounds of weight per year. “Dieting” doesn’t get any easier than that!
- Normally I don’t drink juice because it’s full of sugar, I learned (seems so obvious now) if you dilute your juice with half seltzer water to cut sugar and calories, you could lose 13 pounds in a year! Yow! You juice drinkers take heed!
- You know you need to exercise, but did you know that if you workout just (fast walking counts) three times per week for just 30 minutes at a time you can lose 13 pounds a year. Imagine what you could do with a little more effort.
Enjoy your weekend, make it extraordinary!

I loves me my grape juice–fermented grape juice that is. You’ve inspired me to add a little sparkle to my evenings by doing half-wine, half-seltzer. If I can shift 13 pounds with this simple little trick, it’ll be worth it! Sipping a grapefruit-accented pinot grigio with bubbles now, and have to admit, it’s pretty refreshing. Besides, I won’t plow through a bottle so quickly either, so it’ll be as good for my wallet as my waistline.
