Drink plenty of water!
Drink at least eight to ten 8-ounce glasses of water every day in addition to your Cambridge Food For Life Nutrition
products! Coffee, tea, or diet soda is permitted although not as a substitute
for water. As you decrease the quantity of food in your diet, you also reduce
the fluid intake from those foods. Since the body composition is approximately
60% water, it is very important to replenish those fluids. So, drink up!
Don't skip servings.
Three servings of the Cambridge Food For Life Nutrition products
each day assure you that you are getting the vital nutrition needed
for good health. Do not skip any servings while on your weight loss
program. You will not lose weight any faster, but you will sacrifice
Use quality water.
The Cambridge Food For Life Nutrition drinks, soups,
and cereal are especially formulated for great taste! If your tap water
has a strong taste, we suggest that you try filtered or bottled water
so as not to distort the flavor.
For a long-term commitment, weighing
daily can be detrimental to your program. The weight of the liquids
you consume daily can add two or more pounds to your weight.
The first few days of your weight loss program will
probably be the most challenging, so plan to keep busy. If you feel
hungry, chew sugar-free gum, have a drink of water, or get involved
in some other activity to distract your attention away from food.
Be aware of what you are eating.
Become very conscious of any and all food that goes
into your mouth. "Nibbles" and in-between-meal snacks that
are not part of your meal pattern are easily forgotten, but the calories
they add are not! If you must snack, choose a small portion of a low-fat,
low-calorie food and include these calories in your daily total. A half-serving
of a Cambridge Food For Life Nutrition drink, soup, Super Oats, or bar
is a good selection. Awareness of what you eat is the key to good weight
Know your strenghts & weaknesses.
Get to know yourself - learn your eating habits, strengths,
and weaknesses. There are ways to control them. Be honest - no one else
has to know! Ask your Cambridge Distributor about the "Control
for Life" learning program for help. You can learn to say "no"
to food and learn when to say "yes" without feeling guilty.
Think of new rewards for yourself. There is life beyond
food! Enjoy a new dress, a good book, and a movie. Or, nurture yourself
with a home day spa.
Commitment is key. Follow your program with sincerity
and regularity, and you will succeed!
