 How To Follow The Mel Diet:

Try to go without any beef or pork products for as long as possible and just stick to chicken and fish. No frozen meals because of the high sodium. Eggs, fruits, and vegetables are wonderful. Down water!! Keep a bottle with you at all times, leave them around the house. Drink a glass immediately when you wake up. If you want a snack you can have a 100 calories snack pack, a glass of 2% or lower milk (coats your stomach), or a vegetable or fruit serving. Have 3 meals a day, 2 snacks. Only green vegetables are recommended. If you end up eating bread or pasta, cut your serving in half and use whole grain products. For example, if you want to have a tuna sandwich use little to no mayonnaise and only 1 slice of bread. Try and avoid all condiments as they are extremely high in fat and sodium-this includes diet and fat free condiments. You'll eventually get used to the simpler, more "plain" taste but can always use seasonings to spice things up. Don't eat any full meals past 7:00 and don't eat anything 2 hours before you will go to sleep. If you can, always try and leave a little food on your plate because chances are your stomach is full-you don't need to stuff it. As with any diet exercise and vitamins can only help keep you healthy and will compliment the diet. Just remember, it's about quantity and healthier, simpler choices.

kristinkali's top tips

1.Never ignore portion sizes as they are important in any diet.
2.Don't eat big meals and then go to sleep. You will just be adding on calories and won't be able to burn those off.
3.Work out. It can only help. If you do, you will probably see more progress in inches lost versus pounds lost.
4.This is a diet of dedication, and not one of "cheating". While there aren't any specific phases, it's a life-change diet that you need to commit to.
5.If you choose this diet you will probably have more energy as heavier, more fatty foods tend to make your body feel tired and can be more addictive.
