Being at your ideal weight can make you look and feel your best as a transgender woman or crossdresser.
It makes sense, doesn’t it?
Males and females tend to gain weight in different areas. The more fat you store in the abdomen and upper body, the harder it is to create that classic feminine body shape.
The good news is that there are tons of diet and exercise programs that can help you lose weight and achieve your body feminization goals.
The bad news?
It can be totally overwhelming to sort through all the conflicting weight loss advice out there!
That’s why, in this blog post, I share simple, proven principles that apply to any diet or exercise program.
Here are 8 must-know weight loss tips for a slimmer MTF female figure:
1. Listen Your Body’s Hunger Signals
Most diets try to control what you eat without considering your body’s actual needs.
This is a problem for two reasons:
- If you ignore your hunger and don’t eat when you’re physically hungry, you set yourself up to overeat later.
- If you eat when you’re NOT physically hungry – for example, when you’re bored or eat because it’s “time” to eat – you consume calories that your body doesn’t need.
The solution is simple: eat when you are physically hungry – and stop when your body is satisfied. That’s how naturally thin people eat.
This approach is called intuitive eating and it’s been a total game changer for me. To learn more, check out these books:

2. Don’t Skip Breakfast
Breakfast is essential for revving up your metabolism for the day. A 2011 study shows that a protein-rich breakfast can reduce cravings and overeating later in the day.
But what if you’re not hungry in the mornings? This is the only slight exception to tip #1: Aim to have a light breakfast or a mid-morning snack.
But don’t wait until lunch to eat. By then, you’ll probably be TOO hungry, which can set you up to overeat.
3. Increase Fiber
Did you know that 95% of Americans don’t get the recommended amount of fiber per day? This can have a big impact on your weight loss and body feminization goals.
Fiber helps with fat loss in several ways:
- It helps balance blood sugar levels and aids digestion.
- It helps you feel full and acts as a natural appetite suppressant.
Tips #3 is to eat more high fiber foods and add a fiber supplement to your diet.
4. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
If you want to lose weight, drink more water. It’s that simple. Water is a natural appetite suppressant, it helps remove waste, and it also increases fat burning.
Be sure to drink a minimum of 6-8 glasses of water per day.
5. Drink Tea
Tea is an awesome ingredient for weight loss! Research shows that tea reduces your appetite and speeds up fat burning.
To get the full fat-burning effect, you must drink black tea, green tea, or white tea. These teas are high in catechins, which can increase metabolism and aid in fat loss.
6. Cut the Secret Sugars
Sugar is one of the worst foods to eat if you want to lose weight. Sugar raises your blood sugar level, which increases insulin. Insulin promotes weight gain and fat storage.
Did you know that most of the sugar you eat does NOT come from candy bars and cookies? Processed foods are loaded with sugars that can secretly make you fat!
Here are the top sources of hidden sugar to watch out for:
- Salad dressing
- Peanut butter
- Spaghetti sauce
- Hamburger and hot dog buns
- Microwave meals
- Fast food
7. Get Enough Sleep
Studies show that poor sleep or a lack of sleep can decrease the metabolism and increase calorie intake.
If you’re having trouble losing weight, take a look at your sleep habits. Aim for a minimum of 7-8 hours of “beauty sleep” per night.
8. Think Yourself Thin
Have you ever tried to diet or exercise, only to fall off track a few weeks later?
Most weight loss programs fail because they only focus on the PHYSICAL. However, lasting change is all about your mindset and your habits.
So how can you change your mindset? Try hypnosis!
Hypnosis is an effective way to reprogram your subconscious mind, helping you to make permanent changes that lead to a thinner body.
