How did Ree Drummond achieve success in weight loss journey?

Drummond shared on her blog how she went about her journey to weight loss. She said she didn’t use a trainer or did any of those diets like Keto or Paleo. The Pioneer Woman star detailed that she ate fewer calories, consumed smaller portions, weighed her food, and exercised by walking and lifting weights. Drummond also said that she “ate more protein, ate less sugar, and drank no alcohol.” Lastly, Drummond said she weighed herself daily and switched to a standing desk to move around more often.

Another tip that Drummond shared was that during the first five months of her journey, she was intense and then started relaxing during the summer months. Throughout the first months, she was able to get “a good sense of portion sizes, calorie amounts, and protein percentage, and I was able to go about daily life with a general sense of the choices I needed to make.”

Drummond also shared that she doesn’t have a list of banned foods but has also been more mindful of “wasted calories.”

“I’m so grateful for that initial five months of nutritional boot camp I put myself through because, in addition to resetting my whole understanding of portion size, it also made me much more aware of wasted calories, and the importance of minimizing them as a percentage of my diet,” she wrote.
