8 Clever Diet Tricks From Weight Loss Superstars

Inject “Fun” Into Fitness


Jen believes that in order to make exercise a permanent part of your life, it needs to be fun, not torture. So after experimenting with all sorts of activities, she discovered — and embraced — the playful world of hula hooping. In the beginning, she could barely keep the hoop up around her hips, but practice makes perfect, and Jen kept improving. Two months after starting this entertaining exercise program, Jen dropped 20 pounds (no surprise, since a half hour of hooping burns about 200 calories). Today, Jen is 135 pounds lighter and teaches 15 hooping classes a week!
