Seven Suphi issued the advice during a recent interview in which she extolled the virtues of being physically active and taking a mindful approach to everyday life.
The advice comes after research from Groupon showed that approximately 40 per cent of the UK population currently feel "stuck in a rut" in their day-to-day lives, with diet and exercise no doubt playing an important role in these feelings.
Eating more fruit and vegetables, rather than fatty foods,has been proven to boost your immune system and promote overall feelings of wellbeing.
Meanwhile, taking up regular exercise like running is a sure-fire way to boost mood and help alleviate any feelings of stress or anxiety that may lead to comfort eating.
And while combining these two as part of a regular regime will prove key to weight loss, Ms Suphi believes that being mindful and proactive in all that you do can help quicken the process.
Above all else, the life coach believes that effective weight loss starts and ends by setting clear targets.
"Visualise – imagine in a year's time or five years' time, if you do what you've always done where will you be? If you change what you've done where will you be in five, ten, 20 years time?" she said.
The expert also recommended incorporating exercise into your daily or weekly activities, whether it be cleaning the kitchen,vacuuming or even just sitting on the sofa.
"If you're watching TV, could you be doing exercise or stretching while you're doing that? I hold my stomach muscles in when I mow the grass or vacuum," she added.
The crucial component for effective exercise regimes is to ensure they remain fun and challenging. By setting exciting and fun activities to enjoy, getting your weight down and feeling good about yourself will come sooner than you think.
