Laura shares what she does on a daily basis to maintain her weight.

My daily routine is pretty simple. I do have breakfast and then I have a snack around 10:00. I have a medium-sized lunch. Another snack around 3:00, dinner, and then another snack, and they are not all large meals, but it spreads the food out during the day so I don’t have any blood sugar highs or lows. It’s really good for type-2 diabetes people.

And then I make sure I set aside 45 minutes to an hour a day for some sort of exercise. The dog loves me now because I walk him or I hike up the hill and get my endorphins going, or I go to the health club and work out on the bike or weight machines and take care of it that way, but you have to mix exercise with spreading out your meals and portion control – that’s the key.

One of the main things that Lindora program really stresses is to have snacks and by that, I don’t mean cookies and candy and cupcakes – that sort of thing. It would be Lindora protein snacks. So I will have a yogurt peanut crunch bar at 10:00 or actually when I get up, my morning part of it is the creamy hot cocoa, which I love and have it every day. But the snacks have to be healthy protein snacks, which keeps your body in ketosis if you are in the weight loss phase, which just means you are losing fat, not muscle, when you are losing weight.

I have enjoyed walking as exercise whether I was trying to lose weight or not for a long time. If my dog wasn't such a spazz, I'd take her on walks with me. Maintaining weight loss is hard, which is why anyone setting out on a journey to lose weight has to account for it.
