What habits do skinny people or people who have lost a lot of weight have that are different from you? Studies show that people who are naturally skinny have some habits in common.
Many people have lost weight by incorporating these 7 habits into their daily routines and you can too.
7 Habits Of Highly Effective Skinny People
1) They eat what they want
This may sound strange but people who are skinny don’t tend to put the “bad” food label on certain foods.
When you deem some foods off limits you are more likely to crave those foods, especially in times of stress.

People also tend to binge on these foods bringing on feelings of guilt or shame and then repeating the cycle. This is particularly true for emotional or stress eaters.
If you allow yourself to indulge in your favorite treat now and then you are less likely to feel deprived and over indulge in them later.
2) They eat more real food
Skinny people tend to eat less junk food or fast food.
When you eat whole real food your body gets all the nutrients it needs to stay healthy. This means less cravings and binge eating.
Eating whole organic food is the best way to a thinner and more importantly, healthier you.
3) They drink plenty of water
Staying hydrated is one of the most important things you can do to be healthy.
Drinking a glass of water before a meal will help you eat less.
Don’t drink water or other beverages during a meal though as it waters down your digestive enzymes and you won’t digest your food as well.
Smoothies are a great way to stay hydrated. Drink a smoothie for breakfast and you will be less likely to get dehydrated throughout the day. This is because smoothies include healthy juice from fruit and usually some liquid such as water or coconut water.

4) They get regular exercise
Making exercise a priority is very important to maintain a healthy weight.
Find something you enjoy doing everyday. Work in the yard, build something, volunteer somewhere you have to do physical work. Exercise doesn’t have to be done at the gym.
5) Cook at home and make healthy meal plans
When you cook at home you have full control over the ingredients that go into your meal. You can choose healthy oils and organic ingredients.
Restaurant food is often over processed and full of chemicals, preservatives and pesticides. When your body gets overloaded with toxic chemicals it stores them in your fat cells creating extra fat in your body.
Creating healthy weight loss meal plans and preparing foods in advance will keep you from grabbing fast food on the go or eating something unhealthy.
Pick one day a week to shop, prepare foods and store them in the fridge. This will make cooking easier and faster.
No time for healthy meal planning? Don’t worry – I’ve done all the hard work for you.
6) They have a max weight on the scale
Setting a limit to the amount of weight that is acceptable for you is a habit that anyone can incorporate into their life.
When you reach your upper limit weight it is an indication that you need to watch what you are eating and get more exercise. Remember though that crash dieting is not the answer to maintaining or losing weight.
7) They have a positive body image
Feeling good about your body no matter what your weight or weight loss goals are is important. A healthy body image will keep you from eating for the wrong reasons such as shame, guilt or unhappiness with your body.
Do positive affirmations everyday such as “ I love my body” I am healthy and happy” or I am sexy no matter what I weigh”.
Remember that the number on the scale in not important. Everyone has a different healthy weight that is right for them. Your healthy weight cannot be compared to someone else.
If you eat organic whole healthy food and exercise you will find that it will balance your hormones and the weight will naturally come off without dieting.
There are many times that I have switched my diet to a completely unprocessed plan and the weight has come off naturally as a result. But equally, there are times when I have eaten far too much healthy food and I have struggled to lose any weight because my portion sizes were way too big.
If you are struggling to lose weight despite a healthy diet, or you’re not sure how to get started with healthy eating, then check out my 7 day diet plan.
It has been working for thousands over the last few years and I hope to get an email from you soon letting me know it’s worked for you too.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
