Experts are unanimous that drinking enough water is crucial for your health. The Mayo Clinic explains that water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues. Men should drink about 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids a day and women about 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of fluids, says the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.

Eat a Salad a Day

Next up, Carmen recommends eating "a salad a day," which she calls a "non-negotiable." She says "it doesn't matter what time during the day, but I preferably would like you to do it for lunchtime, okay? That means that for lunchtime, no matter what, you're going to have a salad with your protein. Try to avoid heavy dressings, but to build the habit, if you got to have some ranch, whatever, just don't make it a soup of ranch, but I want you to just build a habit of one salad a day. You can literally lose so much weight with that habit."

Eating a healthy salad is a great idea not only for weight loss, but all the other benefits that veggies and protein offer. Most experts recommend eating around one gram of protein per pound a day, so aim for at least 30 grams of protein for your salad.

Her last recommendation is to stay on a schedule. "Being on a schedule is going to help you be consistent. You know why? Because when you go to the gym, if you're going to the gym, or if you're going to your home workouts, you're going to be prepared. You don't have to worry about what the heck am I going to do today? I already did that for you. All you have to do is show up, girlfriend and I want you to show up at least three times a week." She explains that in order to build a habit, you have to do something a few times a week.
