14. Seek Professional Insight – Ask your doctor what type of weight loss would be best for your body and discuss true goals

15. Add Supplements – adding protein supplements or shakes can help fight food urges, give your body needed additives as well as allow your body to feel fuller and longer

16. Body Appropriate Vitamins – relating to your doctor consultation, be sure to get your body’s measurements and medical numbers for cholesterol and other labs to determine deficiencies you could accommodate with vitamins or foods

17. Do what makes YOU feel great – any dieting should be done so long as you are feeling really happy and on board with the changes. If you’re not liking the diet, it is very likely you will not stick to it.
