Each weekday this month, check out BettyConfidential’s exclusive tip from top trainers and nutritionists, and take a look at the daily three-meal menu from NutriFit, a health-conscious food delivery program that works with A-list stars like Angelina Jolie.

Tip of the day

Make a weight-loss list. Molly Wangsgaard, RD, corporate dietitian for the Jenny Craig weight-management program, suggests that you write a specific list of reasons why you want to lose weight – to be able to play with your kids, wear a new dress, feel more confident at a job interview. “Keep it in a visible place,” says Wangsgaard, “and add to it whenever you can.”
