Dieting Tips

Don't try to skip meals or starve yourself, you'll only end up binge eating which causes you to gain even more weight.

Don't eat 3-4 hours before going to bed. This little change in lifestyle can result in significant weight loss.

Drink plenty of water. You may be overeating because you think you're hungry when you're actually thirsty.

Avoid consuming empty calories. Junk food, candy, and soda contain a lot of sugar, fat, and calories, but not much nutrition. They don't do anything good for your body, and they will only cause you to put on weight.

Examine the types of food you are eating and think of ways you can cut down on calories, fat, and sugar. For example, if you make yourself a sandwich, be careful how much cheese and mayonnaise you put on it. These condiments add flavor but they can often double the calories and fat of the sandwich. Use salad dressing sparingly. Pay attention to how much butter you add to your bread or baked potato. Try putting less sugar and milk in your coffee or tea.

Eat more vegetables than fruit. Fruits are great for you but they are higher in calories because they contain more sugar than vegetables. Vegetables are low in calories but filling because they contain a lot of fiber.

Eat less more often. Rather than eating 3 larger meals each day, enjoy 5 or 6 small meals. Eating too much at one sitting leads to weight gain by placing extra strain on your digestive system.

Avoid all Diet Drugs. Diet drugs are not a safe way to shed extra pounds. Steer clear of any advertised "quick fix".

Combine exercise with healthy eating. Even small amounts of exercise can help to boost weight loss and lead to better dieting results.

Stick with it. Don't give up if you hit a plateau. Dieting takes a strong commitment to enjoy lasting results. Keep your long term goals in mind.

Cool Re: Dieting Tips

Take your time eating meals. On average, it takes about 20 minutes for the stomach to send a signal to the brain saying "hey, I'm full." If you eat too quickly, you can overstuff yourself in short order!

Satisfy that craving for something sweet if you wish but do it smart. For example, instead of devouring a big slice of cake, just take a bite or two. It's often just enough to satisfy that craving. Just be sure to have the discipline to put is aside afterward.

This is very simple - AVOID DRINKING SODA. Cutting out the sugar/high-fructose corn syrup in the soda alone will help you lose weight quickly!

Don't discount hypnotherapy and/ or self-hypnosis as a tool. In several studies that out different weight-loss methods side by side against each other, hypnotherapy yielded the best results. It seems that if you can convince your mind to eat healthily, the work is done.

You should be eating 5 small meals a day every 3 to 4 hours. This keeps your metabolism working, thus burning the calories faster.

Avoid "fad diets," such as Atkins, Hollywood Diets, etc., as many of these will help you lose weight, but not keep it off once you've achieved your goal weight. Also, on many of these diets you will lose "water weight" which will come right back as you replenish yourself with liquids.

When it comes to weight loss, the old adage is true: slow and steady wins the race. If you drop a lot of weight all at one time, odds are you have done it in a very unhealthy way and you will gain it back just as rapidly as you lost it. But, if you adhere to a strict regimen of eating less (and eating healthier foods) combined with more exercise, while the weight loss may not be as sudden, it is more likely to stay off and you will be healthier.

A great way to control how much you eat at restaurants is by ordering kids meals. Something like a kids pizza or a sandwich is a great way to cut some of those extra calories.

Use salad plates instead of dinner plates. The smaller plate will make it look like you have more food so you won't overstuff yourself with filling up the bigger plate. Remember that saying: your eyes are bigger than your stomach.

Try simple portion control. Figure out haw many calories are in each meal you eat and if your are having too many - cut back. Shaving off 100 calories a day can lead to significant weight loss over time.
