Top 5 Tips to Help You Slim Down for the New Year

1.      Begin the day with a high protein breakfast. Protein-rich shakes, bars, and eggs make excellent choices that fill you up and stave off hunger for hours.

2.      Tuck away portion-controlled snacks in your purse and make sure to eat one every 2 to 3 hours. Your blood sugar levels will stay steady and so will your mood.

3.      Keep plenty of low-calorie fruits and vegetables handy to snack on – they offer an antioxidant punch to help reduce the stress of planning a wedding, and give your skin a healthy glow.

4.      Get plenty of sleep, 7-8 hours per night. Studies show it can help you attain that figure that you're looking for.

5.      Hydration, Hydration, Hydration! Drink water as opposed to calorie laden beverages.
