Look; Drink lots of water. Pills and fad diets like Atkins, quickie diets (loosing 7 pounds in 7 days & fruit/veggie diet) and diet herbs don’t work and they are just gimmicks to make money for food industries so that you will continue buying their products. You will gain all of it back once u eat normally again too. Include more fiber and pre portioned meals So theres no chance of overeating. Eat breakfast, drink tea, cut back on beer. To lose weight, you need to take in fewer calories than you use. Decide if you want to eat less, exercise more, or do a combination of both. If you want to eat less, you can use the links that ill provide for you to find out the cals in the foods you eat. Weight loss does not occur evenly and Whatever you choose to do, do it consistently. Inevitably, to lose weight, 500 calories could be subtracted per day for each pound you want to lose every week, you know? However, total calorie levels < 1200 calories are not recommended and weight loss of > 2 pounds per week is also not recommended. One pound of body fat has 3,500 calories. By just cutting out the calories equivalent to one slice of buttered toast from your diet, you can lose 15 pounds in one year and a half! Weight loss is accelerated by reducing calories. The best diet is one that can be maintained for months; and then healthy eating habits become a way of life. 

By the way when going out to eat for a special occasion you can try to “bank” your calories. If you eat less calories than your calorie goal for the day, you can “bank” or save your calories for the next day. This again will be helpful when planning for a special occasion. 

The following snacks are great: 100-Cal pudding, Jello, packaged 50 cal applesauce, Nature Valley granola bar, Matzo, Kashi Cereal (one cup in a nice plastic bag), A Tootsie Pop. Pack your own lunches or little meals when you go out in a cute little brown bag or in a cute bag the night before you leave your house. I encourage my mother to bring almonds and/or peanuts w/ her before she leaves. Eat breakfast too beore leaving house. Never shop on an empty stomach b/c when you get hungry at a mall or grocery store, you’ll pack your Cart with a lot of junk! Each week, make up a little menu that focuses on nutritious whole foods, & try to do some of your cooking in advance. You could make extra portions on days that you  cook for example and package some for lunch the next day. Eat more food without packaging and look for foods with fewer than 5-6 ingredients if you can. Check for hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats, b/c this = Trans fat. Trans fat aren’t always listed on food labels! If the product has either one of those words please don’t eat it! As an adult you need 25-35 grams of fiber a day and fiber is said to push food through the intestines causing great digestion. Foods with fiber include, popcorn, quinoa, oats (I buy Quaker oats, raw, old fashioned, 140-150 per half cup), Matzos in the kosher aisle, Special K Protein Plus cereal, Kelloggs All Bran wheat flakes cereal, Wheatie’s, and Kellogg’s total, original (it’s a light blue and white box). My top of those are Special K protein plus and Kellogg’s all bran wheat flakes because it tastes awesome! I like silk soy milk too, the organic kind and silk soy vanilla. Please read labels hun; a lot of labels are tricky. All you have to do is look at “Total Fat” to ser how much fat is in each serving. I would cut back on all red meat and perhaps go for seafood, You know? Eat more legumes and whole grains and avoid packaged foods (except the two-four cereals I just listed of course haha). Eat more raw foods you know?-like vegetables and fruits. I like cut up mushrooms and spinach in my salads. I like kiwi, apricots, tomatoes, garlic powder on salads, carrots, and broccoli. I like to bake mangoes, peaches, pears in the oven for like 2 minutes or less and the juices just POP OUT, like its friggin Christmas and it just tastes amazing. You may try it in the microwave too, just to test this out. I like TruVia too, Its in the baking aisle. I sprinkle it in my warm white tea with a little bit of lemon juice (like a teaspoon) when I just want to relax. I like truvia with oatmeal, over fruits that sometimes taste too dry like Papayas (which is great for your face mind you). Cantaloupes are amazing and strawberries; eat moderately because although fruit is good, it has a lot of sugar, (good sugar though). While “natural” sugars might be a better choice than table sugar from a health and nutrient standpoint, the caloric load is still the same: Sugar is empty calories. If you’re counting calories, you want every calorie to count! Hope this helps and email me anytime.

  1. You don’t need help. All you need are proper eating habits and whatever exercise you can work into your lifestyle. Check out these fitness facts.

    • If you consume fewer calories than you burn, you have to lose fat eventually. There are no exceptions to this fact.

    • There are only two nonsurgical things you can do to sculpt your body and they are (1) add or lose fat and (2) add or lose muscle. Muscle can only be lost naturally through atrophy.

    • A pound of fat will yield about 3500 calories (Kcal) of energy.

    • An average person must run or walk about 5 miles (8 km) every day to burn one pound of fat per week BUT THEIR DIET MUST ALLOW IT.

    • An average person must run or walk about 350 miles (563 km) to burn 10 pounds BUT THEIR DIET MUST ALLOW IT. If they walk 350 miles (13.4 marathons) at 3mph it will take them 117 hours or about three full 40 hour work weeks to burn 10 pounds of fat.

    • If an average person consumes 500 calories per day less than they burn, they will lose about a pound a week with no extra time or physical effort required.

    •Running does not burn any more fat than walking as long as the distance remains the same.

    • It does not matter if a person runs or walks a given distance…they will burn the same number of calories. Calories are energy and energy expenditure is not time dependent. How fast a person runs has nothing to do with how many calories they burn. Only the distance determines the calories burned.

    • There is no exercise which will remove fat from a particular place on the body. Your body (genetics) determines where you lose fat, not you nor your diet nor your exercise. Spot fat removal by diet or exercise is a myth which is why people spend so much money on liposuction.

    • It is not necessary to do “cardio” to burn fat. Cardio is aerobic exercise while maintaining a heart rate of 80% of max or more which is used to maintain cardio-vascular fitness. You can burn fat in your sleep.

    • Most of the calories you consume will be spent just keeping your body temperature at 98.6F.

    • It doesn’t matter how hard or how long you exercise, you will not lose any fat if you eat too much. You can always eat more calories than you can burn. When it comes to burning fat, diet always trumps exercise.

    • There are no supplements which will make your body burn fat. Only you can do that with diet control.

    • An average natural bodybuilder who is just starting to train may gain as much as 4-8 ounces of muscle in a month. An average dieter who is burning fat will lose about a pound a week. Anyone can gain a pound in a few minutes just be drinking a pint of water.

    Green tea, acai, and supplements won’t help. It’s all about proper eating.

    Here’s how to burn fat. Forget all the fad diets, myths and misinformation, and just plain bad advice you’ve learned in the past. Here’s the only fat loss plan you need and it’s approved the US National Institute of Health.

    Eat a diet of varied, wholesome, and high quality foods such that your daily caloric intake is about 500 calories less than your daily caloric burn while keeping your macronutrient ratios at about 55/25/20 (%calories from carbs/fats/protein) and not doing anything to defeat the foregoing plan such as taking supplements, drinking alcohol, abusing drugs, using cleanses or emetics, etc. That’s it. It’s that simple.

    Here’s the only two websites you need to do that.
    1. This site has a wide range of information about foods, fat, diets, and exercise with calculators, diet tips, food facts, etc. —> http://www.freedieting.com/

    2. This website is a great way to track calories, macronutrients, water, and exercise. It also does all the math for you and makes it super easy to look up foods to enter into your online food intake diary. There’s a discussion forum where you can exchange info with thousands of other dieters. —>http://www.myfitnesspal.com/

    Good luck and good health!!


  2. This whole acai berry thing is a scam.
    Acai berries are high in antioxidants.
    A diet high in antioxidant foods can increase your metabolism.
    An increase in metabolism can burn more calories.
    More calories burned can result in weight loss.
    Acai berries cause weight loss!
    That is the big “stretch” these con artists are selling.
    Acai berries don’t have any more antioxidants in them than regular blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries. At 10 times the price because they are “exotic”.
    The “cleanse” that usually come with them contain nothing more than psyllium husk powder to help you poop more. There is no such thing as a “fat burner “.
    Burning more calories than you consume is the only fat burner.
    None of these weight loss supplements guarantee anything unless you establish a healthy diet and exercise program.
    So why not just establish a healthy diet and exercise program and keep your money?
    You are spending somewhere between $ 2 and $ 4 per day on products that are not approved or guaranteed to do anything!
    The same “stretch of the imagination” applies to the green tea, maquiberry, hoodia, moyoberry, gojiberry, fruta planta, and african mango seed extract pills out there.
    That kind of money pays for a great gym membership.
    The only weight loss supplement I recommend is a basic multivitamin.
    A healthy diet high in both soluble and insoluble fiber is the only safe way there is.
