How did the first week go? Have you been eating healthier meals and staying on track with your goals? If so, great! And if not, now’s your chance to wipe the slate clean and start fresh again. Our 500-calorie dinner plan is full of crazy-good recipes and this week’s tips are designed to help you overcome sneaky weight-loss mistakes you may be making.

Day 8: Watch out for too many liquid calories (even in “healthy” beverages like green juice!).

Day 9: Make sure your snacks don’t have as many calories as a meal.

Day 10: Here’s why you really (I mean really) need to make a grocery list.

Day 11: What you do at night affects what you eat all day. It might be time to up your sleep.

Day 12: Rethink the way you set your plate and take a seat to eat instead of running around.

Day 13: Keep an eye on portions, but don’t drive yourself crazy measuring everything you eat. Try this nifty middle-ground trick.

Day 14: No time on your calendar for an hour-long sweat-sesh? Try these tips to squeeze in activity.
