You have to know where you stand at this move. It gives you motivation and hope. When you start to waiver, you will remember this first step.

3. Drink a lot of water.
When you’re going to eat, it is best to drink at least 1 glass of water. Water not only cleanses the body but it can allow your stomach detect that it has content therefore you won’t eat more than you need.
