    it is not only the food you eat, it when how and how much food you take, the more timely you enjoy your meals, the smaller amounts of food you have at a time, not twice a day, but 3, 4 or even 5 times a day an modest meal, that will help you a lot to reach best results all direction wise.

    If you want to be healthier and maintain your weight try eating healthy fats like avocado and olive oil. You can add avocado to salads, sandwitches and drizzle some olive oil on salads. And make simple swaps e.g eat wholegrain bread instead of white bread, have wholegrain cereals instead of processed cereals and nuts instead of chocolate.Try to do about 20 minutes of walking a day or join a local sport team.
    Good luck!

    If you eat healthier you might actually gain muscle, therefore weight more on the scale, and still look slim.

    Eat whole grains, chicken, fish and tofu. And tons of vegetables.

    Here is a wonderful web site with delicious recipes that do not take long to prepare:

    Making the time to eat healthier is the biggest challenge for me, so I got a rice cooker, a slow cooker, etc.

    You can still exercise, use your bodyweight, Pushups, knee bends, etc. Add some PROTEIN to your diet! It will go a long way and benefit you in the long run. Try a protein drink some are not expensive and taste good others are expensive and taste like crap! Myoplex and EAS are both great.

    As a general rule, if you exercise enough you will put on muscle, and muscle weighs less than fat.

    Also, eating protein (which is healthy) will help you put on muscle.

    Then, just keep eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, fibre, carbohydrates, and moderate amounts of sugars and fats.

    No, offence to you but you’re kinda like my one friends who eats like a horse (healthy and unhealthy) but still stays really skinny. I reckon it’s just a matter of what food you eat ie. lots of fresh fruit and veggies. Plus you could also have one, two days a week (depending on how you feel) where you only eat vegetarian food. It’s what my family does. Also try drink at least 1 litre of water a day. By this I’m not saying you can’t have a chocolate or whatever, just try keep it to a minimal. Hope i helped! Oh, try and do sports you like at school. this also helps. By the way, I’m not the thinnest girl ever so i should know.

    No matter how you slice it, diet is a dirty word. It smacks of deprivation and hunger pangs. To overcome the pain, you need a plan.

    So WebMD asked the experts for advice, and put together their quick tips on how to get your weight lossgoing.

    1. Know Your Weight Loss Goals

    Consider how much you need to lose before you decide how to do it, recommends Brian C. Jacobson, MD, MPH, assistant professor of medicine and a gastroenterologist at Boston University Medical Center in Massachusetts.

    Very overweight or obese. “For someone obese, I refer them to our weight loss center,” says Jacobson, who says people with a lot of weight to lose can probably benefit from a structured, supervised program.

    If you’re slightly or moderately overweight. “I advise controlling portion size,” Jacobson says. “If you control portion size, you cut calories.”

    To learn correct portion sizes, consult a registered dietitian or take a look at the new food pyramid at MyPyramid.gov.

    Exercise also has to be part of your plan, Jacobson tells the do-it-yourselfers. But that doesn’t necessarily mean joining a gym. “Buy a cheap treadmill,” he says, and when you’re watching TV, hop on and take a walk.

    Before starting a new exercise regime or weight loss plan, however, remember to talk with your doctor.

    2. Understand Your Weight Loss Personality

    Personality plays a role in our attitude towards food, says Thomas R. Przybeck, PhD, assistant professor of psychiatry at Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, who has published on the topic of diet and personality. Know your tendencies and tailor your plan to conquer the unproductive inclinations.

    Impulsive. “If you have a tendency to be impulsive, you might see a pint of Ben & Jerry’s in the freezer and go for it,” Przybeck says. Clearly you are a dieter who needs to remove those temptations.

    Oblivious. If you tend to not pay attention when you eat — maybe you’re a TV snacker? — you need to avoid such situations if you want to control portions.

    Uptight. “If you are highly anxious, you will probably have more difficulty,” Przybeck says. “Those who are anxious, nervous, and depressed might eat to feel better.”

    Tenacious. Certain personalities don’t find it that difficult losing weight. “If you are highly self-directed, cooperative, and have a lot of stick-to-it-ive-ness, you are going to have an easier time,” Przybeck says.

    Sociable. You tend to monitor your food intake better than others, Przybeck found.

    3. Double Up: Diet & Exercise

    When her heartburn patients ask which should come first, diet or exercise, Lauren Gerson, MD, MSc, director of the Esophageal and Small Bowel Disorders Center at Stanford University School of Medicine in California, says: jump in and do both.

    “It’s a combination of diet and exercise [that will lead to weight loss],” she says.

    4. Make a Firm Weight Loss Commitment

    To be successful, it helps to understand why you want to lose weight. So before you begin a weight loss plan, ask yourself:

    * Am I ready to do this?
    * Is my motivation coming from within?
    * Can I deal with occasional setbacks or lack of progress?
    * Can I focus on weight loss fully? (If you’re in the midst of a job change or other distractions, for example, it might be better to resolve those issues, and then focus on weight loss efforts.)

    Finally, be sure you’re committed to losing weight for yourself — not because someone else is pressuring you to do so.

    Then, take things slowly, keep these tips in mind, and you should be on the road to weight loss in no time.
