Keep slimming down simple for 2014

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
Ready to lose weight in 2014? Lori Pratt with Weight Watchers shares tips on how to slim down in the new year.
 
1. Start slowly. Replace one meal a day with power foods (rice, beans, vegetables, other dense foods) that will keep you satisfied until your next meal time.
 
2. Place your foods at the front of your refrigerator or pantry, ahead of your family's food, to keep you on track.
 
3. Chop, clean and organize your foods as soon as you get them home. This will save time in preparation for cooking.
 
4. Schedule your meals to avoid unnecessary snacking.
 
5. Celebrate your success!
