Lrichtn's top tips

1.Tell someone you trust what you weigh, that you are dieting, and ask them for encouragement. Be accountable to yourself by discussing how you are doing on your diet in the mirror with yourself. Look yourself in the eye!
2.Eat protein heavy meal for breakfast - keeps you from being hungry longer throughout the morning. Eat protein at every meal
3.Eat a larger lunch than dinner if possible so you have more time to burn some of it off before sleeping
4.Drink plenty of water throughout the day, especially after exercising. Stay away from as much processed food as you can - always choose fresh (or frozen) and prepare yourself - JOURNAL EVERYTHING YOU EAT - EVERYTHING! Remind yourself that if you are going to eat it, you will have to journal it!
5.Eat a midmorning and late afternoon snack to keep from being "starved" when trying to think about what to eat for your next meal
6.Make a grocery list and stick to it. Eat right before you go grocery shopping.

About / History

We all know "natural" foods are better for us than processed anything. I have noticed that low carb dieting seems to work better for me than any other diet type - and it appears to work well for a majority of people. However, I don't like the "extremes" of some diets or the "buy our product" focus - or the "eat this weird thing that I end up hating" focus. So I decided, with the help of the fat secret easy food lookup, to journal what I'm eating, monitor my carbs and try to keep them under 100 daily, and watch my calories as well (keep them under 2500 right now based on my weight). It's working and that's all I have to say!
