Everything I Ever Needed to Know About Weight Loss I Learned from My Cat
My cat Kali is my weight-loss guru. She’s maintained a svelte 10 lbs her entire adult life. Here are Kali’s tips for weight management:
Get some exercise every day. Make it something you enjoy doing.
Take naps. Getting plenty of rest is important.
Stop what you’re doing to do some stretches several times a day.
Don’t eat food you don’t enjoy. Life is too short.
Don’t be too serious. Take breaks. Do something playful, just for fun, each day.
Drink enough water, and insist on fresh. Don’t drink water that’s been sitting in a bowl for a few hours.
Even with food you do enjoy, stop when you’re no longer hungry, and walk away.
A few bites of something you like can be enough.
Don’t eat the same things all the time. Insist on variety.
When you’re eating something you really love, give yourself over completely to the pleasure. Savor each morsel. Closing your eyes and purring can enhance the experience.
Laughing Cow Light is a great treat.
