    i hate to say it, but diet and exercise. i actually GAINED weight when i started exercising, but i look better. Muscle weighs more than fat. I crave all of that stuff, too. try gum for the sugary foods and diet soda or crystal light. good luck!!!

    If you eat sugary, fattning suff like you crave, you’re going to keep craving it. There’s no way you can lose weight by this summer if you continue to eat that stuff. You must not eat it! Fruits! Apples (I recommend macintosh) and grapes and strawberries and make sure you get some meat in there. Keep working out, though. Everything will fall into place.

    I wouldn’t recomend a fad diet, but Atkins is good for loosing weight fast. You would have to cut out all the foods you seem to love though and people tend to gain the weight back.

    I do have some tips to help you with a healthier diet, because we seem to have the same tastes in food.

    Cut out coke, even diet. Iced tea is better. I really like the Passion Iced Tea. Try and cut caffienne out of your diet.
    Eat healthier foods, but spend time while making it.
    I.E. If you are going to have grilled chicken or something. Make sure you maranate it and such. Spending a lot of time to make healthy foods good meals makes a huge difference.
    Don’t just eat carbohydrates when you do. If you add proteen or cheese it helps you fill up faster. Plus gives you more energy to exersize.
    For sweet things I eat a lot of sugar free ice pops (15 calories!) and they have mini fruit roll ups (40 calories)
    you don’t feel like you are dieting.

    Dear friend,

    You’re about to discover what might be the most powerful fat loss system ever developed. It’s the same system that has been documented and scientifically proven by weight loss experts all over the world.

    This incredible system has already had a major impact on the health and lives of countless people all over the world… people just like you.

    This is the only diet concept that results in MASSIVE weight loss… and it will work for you, even if you are only 75% committed to following my quick and easy weight loss plan.

    What am I talking about…

    “The Low Glycemic Index Diet —

    Better Known as The Low GI Diet”

    Finally, a diet program that WORKS!

    The LOW GI Diet focuses on foods that are ‘slow-release’ in your body. What this means is that when you eat any food, your body digests that food either, quickly, or slowly depending on the Glycemic index of that food.

    Why is this important…

    Well, quick ‘release foods’ are your bodies worst enemy as they are digested quickly by your stomach and your body is unable to burn off the calorie from that food… causing fat deposits to stick to you.

    So, our diet “must” consist mainly of ‘slow release foods’ which allow us to burn off the calories ingested.

    Slow release basically means that your body is getting energy from your food throughout the day and therefore your fat stores will be limited as the calories from your food will be burnt off throughout the day.

    The Shortest Time Possible.. While Still

    Eating The Foods You Love…

    Unlike many diets you will still be able to enjoy the foods you love and enjoy.

    The key to the LOW GI Diet is… Moderation! … and the best part is, you don’t need to starve yourself, do weird exercises every day or run hundreds of miles every month… and… certainly you don’t need to take any dangerous or unpredictable drugs for you to see these kinds of amazing results.

    The LOW GI Diet is simple… for a weight loss program to be successful it has to be EASY TO DO!.. It’s a basic truth that people just don’t do well on programs that are difficult to follow.

    But you don’t have to worry about that with the LOW GI Diet. This plan is so incredibly easy to follow even a kindergartner could do it (and actually it would be very beneficial for kindergartners’ health if they did follow this plan instead of eating all the junk food that today’s youth consume).

    Let me ask you a question: How much easier would your life be if you lost 5 to 25 Kilos, had tons more energy and felt healthier than you had in many years? And if you are overweight and feeling bad now, how much worse will it be in 5 or 10 years?

    I can tell you from experience that, without a doubt, you will either fix this situation now or your weight will continue to increase and your health will slowly spiral downward.

    Turn around your future now… allow me to introduce.

    Achieve Permanent Weight Loss..”

    At last!.. every ounce of information you need to succeed with the LOW GI Diet is here.

    Over the last 30 years, research into food and blood glucose response has completely changed our carbohydrate classification system.

    It has been learned that it is impossible to predict the impact on blood glucose levels by certain foods, instead people are fed carbohydrate foods and the response measured.

    This response is known as the Glycemic Index (GI), it is a measure of how quickly carbohydrate foods are digested and absorbed, and ranks carbohydrate foods according to their impact on blood sugar (glucose) levels: as indicted by elevated blood glucose

    Foods with a high GI are absorbed quickly into the blood stream and cause a rapid rise in blood glucose levels. While foods with a low GI are broken down more slowly over time and keep blood glucose levels more stable (Remember that low is slow!).

    Some carbohydrate foods will maintain your energy levels for hours, while some may cause your blood glucose to rise and fall. Different types of carbohydrate can also affect feelings of fullness in the stomach and this can influence hunger and your ability to control your body weight.

    Why is the GI important?

    When our blood glucose levels are stable we have plenty of readily available fuel for the brain and muscles. If our blood glucose levels drop too low (hypoglycemia) we feel tired, dizzy and generally unwell. If our blood glucose levels rise too quickly a rapid drop usually follows this.

    Include low glycemic index foods in meals and snacks to slow the release of glucose into the bloodstream. A low glycemic index snack a few hours before exercise will help maintain your energy levels for more effective training. After high intensity exercise (strength training) a high glycemic index snack should be consumed within 30 minutes. This will help to replace energy and start the recovery process.

    Low-GI foods take longer to digest and help delay hunger pangs that little bit more and thus promote weight loss. So please choose your carbs carefully as this will lower your insulin levels and burn more fat. The secret is to swap high GI foods with low GI foods.

    Simple steps to a low GI diet.

    Step No 1

    Start with a healthy, well balanced and varied diet based on a good nutrition program. The diet should be low in fats, moderate in carbohydrate and protein. The program should be high in fibre and contain a varied amount of foods to provide the required amount of vitamins and minerals.

    Step No 2

    Look at the type of carbohydrates that you consume during the day. Look at the carbs that you eat the most, as these will have the most dramatic impact on your diet.

    Try to change the carbs you eat the most with at least one low GI one. (Replace potato with sweet potato, use noodles instead of rice) By substituting half of your daily carbohydrate from high GI to low GI will result in an overall reduction in the GI of your diet.

    Reducing the GI in your diet reduces your insulin levels and increases the fat burning apparatus in your body. Try to reduce the high GI’s in your diet by substituting them with low GI’s.

    Regular consumption of low GI foods increases the feelings of fullness and satisfaction and so prevents weight gain. Try taking in six small meals a day of healthy low fat low GI foods to prevent overeating at meal times and control appetite.

    Remember, that it is also important to look at the calories in food too Rice and bread might be low in fat but when your body is burning the carbohydrates in these foods it doesn’t burn as much fat. So if you are on a low fat diet, you wont loose as much weight if your calories are still high.

    Have a look at the table below for the different GI food ratings.

    Low GI(<50)
    Medium GI (50-70)
    (High GI (70>)

    Grapefruit (26)

    Baked Beans (15)

    Lentils (29)

    Peanuts (13)

    Soy Beans (15)
    Pineapple (66)

    Raisins (64)

    Sweet corn (59)

    Potato Chips (51)

    All bran (51)
    Cornflakes (80)

    W/M Bread (72)

    Brown Rice (80)

    Carrots (92)

    Baked Potato (98)

    Compare these two menus and try to adjust your diet accordingly.

    High GI Menu

    Breakfast: 40 Grams of cornflakes with milk. Two slices of whole meal toast with margarine and jam.

    Snack: Two sweet biscuits with a white coffee.

    Lunch: Ham and salad whole meal Roll with an apple.

    Snack: Four crackers with cottage cheese and chives

    Main Meal: Serving of Roast chicken with a large baked potato, peas. and Small piece of cake.

    Low GI Menu

    Breakfast: 40 Grams of bran with low fat milk. Two slices of low GI toast (Try Burgen) with margarine and jam.

    Snack: Two oatmeal biscuits with a coffee (Low fat milk).

    Lunch: Ham and salad Roll (Low GI bread). Soft-serve vanilla yoghurt with toasted muesli sprinkled on top.

    Snack: Two bananas.

    Main Meal: Serving of Roast chicken with a small baked potato and peas. Two scoops of low fat ice cream with half a cup of canned

    Chicken, beef, fish, eggs, nuts, and avocados contain very little or no carbohydrates. These foods if eaten by themselves will not have much effect on your glucose levels and are very low GI. Alcoholic beverages especially wine are also low GI so can be included in your diet but remember to count them in your daily caloric intake.

    Low GI foods are ideal for loosing weight due to the slow absorption from the stomach. Low GI foods also help to keep blood sugar levels more stable and this has an effect on reducing sweet cravings.
