The Biggest Loser’s Jen Widerstrom Dropped the Best Weight-Loss Advice on Us

Are you ready to take the leap of faith and change your life, starting with your health? Jen Widerstrom, trainer on The Biggest Loser, and author of Diet Right for Your Personality Type, has some weight-loss advice for you if you’re just beginning your journey.

“Don’t make it harder than it really is,” Jen told POPSUGAR. When we talked to her about her best words of wisdom for weight-loss newbies, she explained that it’s all about small, simple steps — and all it takes is one day to get going.

“One day of quality eating is like two weeks of workouts.”

“One day of quality eating is like two weeks of workouts,” she said. It’s that simple — you need “one quality day of food, water, sleep — which to me means get good rest, get your water in, get some healthy food in (like almonds with protein and fat, leafy greens).” And once you have that one day of solid nutrition, you’ll start to build and gain traction.

“Start simple,” she said. “One day at a time, and then what starts to happen is you’ll start to accrue good day after good day, just by being consistently simple. You will find the momentum, you will get there, but you’ve just got to be patient.”
