    It’s not so much about “cutting things out” as much as it is about cutting DOWN.

    The first thing you need to do in that, though, is to begin to be aware of how much you’re eating now. Most people have NO IDEA how much they are eating or what they SHOULD be eating — so how in the world can they possibly expect to improve?

    Drinking only water (i know it is hard but i dropped a good bit of weight doing so, if you can’t at least stay away from pop (soda) that will do it.)

    Try eating more fruits and veggies in place of other fatty meals, like junk food, cookies, or high calorie meals. Like most people (I’m guilty sometimes!), you’ve probably brainwashed yourself into thinking that fast food tastes better than healthy food, but that’s not entirely true! Try eating more grapes, clemintines, apples chunks in vanilla yogurt (good for sweet cravings!), blueberries, hummus (it sounds gross but it’s really not, especially with Wheat Thins or Food Should Taste Good brand whole grain chips! I personally like garden vegetable or tomato flavored), granola, low-fat yogurt, low-fat string cheese, LITE whole wheat bread, 100 – calorie popcorn / kettle corn bags, steamed broccoli with a buttery garlic sauce etc. I also snack on South Beach Diet oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, they’re good AND pretty healthy! And eat SLOWLY. Take one bite at a time, chew completely, then take another bite. If you eat slower, you’ll become fuller quicker, and you won’t overeat.

    Incorporate more exercise into your daily life. Take the dog for a 20 minute walk, do jumping jacks while watching TV, do laps around the block, or the house for that matter. Don’t let yourself sit down for too long. If you can, get a gym membership. I use an elliptical for 30 minutes 5-6 times a week and it works great for me.

    And don’t eat out of boredom! It’s a nasty habit to break, TRUST ME. Whenever you feel like eating, watch a movie with no commercial breaks so you don’t have time to get up, call a friend, read a book or magazine, or get out of the house, away from the food.

    And don’t “DIET”. Because the moment you go off your “diet”, you’ll regain the all the weight you lost quickly, believe me. Instead, make “healthy living choices.”

    I recently lost weight, about 20 lbs, and what really helped for me was planning my meals. I planned when and what I was going to eat, and made sure the calorie count was 1400. It may be different depending on your needs, but never go under 1200! Whatever you do, don’t let yourself stray from your plan. Write it all down or type it out and leave it up on your computer so you don’t forget, that’s what I do.

    You’ll never get to your “ideal” body by eating crap food and sitting around, no matter how much you want it to happen. It takes dedication to get the body you want! Make it like a game. How much weight can I lose? Prove it to yourself you DO have the willpower to get what you want. Hang pictures of the body type you want on the fridge and cupboard to stop yourself from mindless snacking or overeating.

    But allow yourself a cheat day every now and then. Life is too short! If you restrict your body of all the “good foods”, you will one day EXPLODE and eat everything in sight. Trust me!

    One more thing: Once you do become thinner, DON’T think you can eat whatever you want now! You’ll regain all the weight back, which is absolutely mortifying, especially after all the hard work to lose it.

    Good luck! Hope that helps (:

    OH, and sitting up straight burns more calories than slouching. Try it!

    water, water and more water. you should drink at least 60 oz. a day (at least 8 glasses) to help keep your body from retaining water. also, instead of eating 3 good sized meals a day, eat 5 small ones to help keep your body from feeling starved and eating too much at the next meal. another tip: never eat past 7 pm and do at least 30 minutes a day of cardio (running, walking, jogging…etc.) hope this helps 🙂

    Stay away from cheap (usually white)
    BAD CARBOHYDRATES and drink one 8oz glass of WATER for every 20 lbs of body weight, every day. Increase you MOVEMENT incrementally every day. Keep your food PORTIONS smaller but more often. Avoid binging. Keep FOCUSED on your goal.

    Sugars and bready things and fast foods. I started limiting those things and I finally got over a weight plateau.
