Thirty-five healthy weight loss tips (#75-110), this page concludes 110 QUICK WEIGHT LOSS TIPS.
75. Mood Matters
Your moods and emotions play a major role in your food preferences. Research shows when you’re depressed you prefer sugary food. Stress makes you crave salty food.
76. Hormones & You
Your hormone balance influences emotions and emotions influence your food preference and interferes with the brain signal to stop eating because you’re full.
77. Food Fiasco
The three most damaging foods in the American diet are -- fast food, soda and bag snacks. You can throw salt and sodium in there for good measure.
78. It’s Your Life
Learn to say NO. It’s admirable that you put others needs before your own but DRAW THE LINE AT THE EXPENSE OF YOUR HEALTH AND HAPPINESS! Healthy Weight Loss Tips - 'No' is not a bad word.
79. The Emotion Meal
Emotions don’t taste good so stop eating them. Healthy Weight Loss Tips -- Walk daily and your outlook, attitude and emotions improve. Scientific fact.
80. Best Quick Weight Loss Tips
People who value time manage it and use it wisely. Those who don’t value time squander it and complain there’s not enough time. FACT: you must manage your time before you can ever hope to manage your weight.
81. The Wallflower
Stop being a wallflower. It’s demeaning and destroys your self-worth. Even if you’re pudgy and not considered eye candy, you’re a nice person and have every right to participate and contribute. Don’t allow other’s opinions to stand in your way. You’re important and your opinion matters regardless of your weight.
82. Social Butterfly
Seek out social situations and human interaction. You are as good as any size five. If society doesn’t recognize your value, that’s society's failure to evolve. Not yours. Dump the guilt Darlin’. Blossom!
83. Best Quick Weight Loss Tips
This is one of the best healthy weight loss tips ever. If you go from one diet to another. Research other diets while you’re on a diet. Spend 50% or more of your total time dieting. Been on four or more diets in the last year. Your appetite increases when you eat. There’s a good possibility you suffer from diet disease.
84. Staying Invisible
Janet from San Antonio writes, “The best thing about Foolproof Weight Loss was the kids at school didn’t know I was losing weight. I lost 20 pounds before any of my best friends noticed.” Heathy Weight Loss Tips -- Keep it invisible.
86. Change Is a Good Thing
From underwear to eating habits, change is necessary. You must constantly change and adapt to survive. It’s a core instinct. When fear and apathy prevent needed change the end result is emotional chaos, confusion and rebellion. It gives you one more reason to fail.
87. Burn Your Wagon
Getting on and off the diet band wagon for a lifetime is self inflicted pain, misery and suffering. You’re not a masochist so burn your diet wagon and start living.
Try friendship, communication, love, sex and human interaction for companionship instead of your television and a bag of chips. Like the old telephone commercial said, “Reach out and touch someone.” Face your fears, Darlin’, most are ghosts.
89. I Want to Hold Your Hand
Listen to the music of your youth. Your brain remembers those tunes and assigns various feelings, emotions and events to them. It fools the brain into making you feel younger. It works better than six cans of Red Bull. Healthy Weight Loss Tips -- Don't underestimate the value of this one. For more about music and dopamine see DOPAMINE, MUSIC & RESEARCH ON OBESITY.
90. More Psychology of Weight Loss Alert
Seek out exciting activities you can add to your life. Excitement is the opposite of boredom. Boredom is a prime cause of overeating. Sing in a choir, join a club, ride a bike, hike cross country, fire your congressman, but add excitement to your life and keep weight loss emotionless.
91. Snack Junky's Best Diet Tip
If you snack from dinner to bedtime, you may be consuming 50% of your daily calories in useless snacks. Chips, dip, pretzels and beer non-stop until bedtime qualifies you as a snack junkie. See Quick Weight Loss Tips #90 for the cure.
92. Jerk Revenge
The next time a mental giant says, “You would look real pretty if you lost weight,” respond with these exact words, “Are you saying I’m not pretty now?” Then sit back and enjoy watching the jerk squirm and sweat. It will make you feel great.
93. “How’s the diet goin’ hon’?”
Lose weight with a single minded determination not to become emotional. Keep it to yourself so you don’t have to answer, “How much ya’ lose so far?” It’s nobody’s business but yours. Weight loss is a personal responsibility, not a community project.
94. Rehearse Success
Window shop while you’re losing weight. Walk briskly from store to store. Move from rack to rack like you’re in a hurry. Don’t buy anything in anticipation, it will fit when you reach ideal weight. But begin selecting outfits now you can try on when you reach ideal weight. Rehearse your success.
A client told me she was doing the mall rehearsal strategy with great success. She got a good cardio walk, beat boredom and had a great time. Not to mention the positive psychology of weight loss benefits from literally touching and envisioning a better future. I told the story in my newsletter. The result was instantaneous. My inbox filled with notes of ‘applause’. They loved it. And thanks to Alexandria from Michigan for sharing her valuable discovery with me. Healthy Weight Loss Tips - Rehearse for success.
96. Perfection Paralysis
This is from Neil in California. “I write software and have to be a perfectionist. I wanted my diet to operate without a glitch. I could never get started and when I did I couldn’t stay with it. Now for the first time in my life I understand why I was my own road block to getting it off.”
97. Weight Loss Is Not About Perfection
It’s not about size five. It’s about your health, happiness and well-being. Nothing’s perfect. So don’t try to be or use it as an excuse for not taking action.

101. The “I don’t believe it” Tip
Kraft mayo with olive oil has 45 calories per tablespoon compared to Hellman’s Real Mayo at 90 calories for the same amount, 50% less. Now we can eat mayo again. I’m sick of mustard. Compare at the store.
102. “No, get out of here” Tip
One quarter cup of Maple Grove Farms sugar free syrup has 30 calories. The same amount of Kellogg’s Eggos syrup has 240 calories. You save 210 calories with Maple Grove and it tastes better to me.

When you quickly regain weight, levels of blood cholesterol increase. Fast weight gain speeds up the rate cholesterol is deposited in the blood vessels. I can’t think of one good reason to crash diet other than selfish instant gratification. Can you? Healthy Weight Loss Tips - Dieting hurts.
BONUS TIP -- Please Take My Advice
There’s a difference between having an overweight problem and an overweight threat to your life. If your weight impedes your movement to the extent you’re immobile, others must take care of your needs, you’re diagnosed as morbidly obese -- I recommend you speak to your doctor about the benefits of an inpatient obesity clinic. Bariatric surgery may also be an option to consider. I’ve seen the results that come out of Duke University and I’m impressed.
BONUS TIP -- Your Weight May Be Only a Symptom
If you cry and get severely depressed for no reason. Hide food. Get up in the middle of the night for a snack. Lie about what you eat. Avoid human contact. Feel shame or extreme guilt about your weight. You should ask your doctor to recommend proper professional care and counseling. You need to talk about it.
