    Re: What Diet?
    hey ashley, 1st off don't listen to all this adkins, zone, etc, diet crap. If you are intrested in losing weight eat healthy and eat often. The rule of small portions, eat small meals 250-350 calories about every 3 hours this will make it so that your body is burning off the calories before you put in new ones and the previously consumed calories are not turned to fat. Find your basal metabolism and subtract 500 calories a day to lose a pound a week for women its body weight x12, for guys its body weight x14. Eat only good calories no empty ones like soda, sugars, starches are sugars too. Cut fat to about 20 grams a day and keep a log of what you eat and the disection of protein, carbs, fat, and fiber.
    fiber and fat will make you feel satisfied and full. But timing is important in the morning eat whole oats like oatmeal, bran flakes, cereals with low sugar. And about 3 pm stop eating most of your cards and turn to proteins and veggies, so chicken breasts, fish, with broccoli, spinach salds, etc.
    take a multi vitamin also because you never know where your diet is missing nutrients and it will help you stay healthy.
    exercise can help you fell better and eat more with out gaining weight. If you do a half hour of biking you can burn 300 calories and that allows you to eat 300 more without gaining any weigt.
    don't eat late if you are hungry and its 10 pm just go to bed. Also drink a ton of water it'll fill you up and sometimes your body is just thirsty and not hungry but people eat instead. So drink up.
    cut alcohol down. Its empty calories that just slow you metabolism down and hinder your gains.

    No More Damn Diets
    Try watching Dr Phil. Seriously.

    Losing weight shouldn't be about a diet. It is a LIFESTYLE. If you view it as a diet, you'll never succeed.

    Eat a variety of foods and if you find you get hungry, eat healthy things imbetween meals, NOT things like museli bars cause they are loaded with sugar.

    Eat healty and exercise every day. Don't deprive yourself of your favourite foods, the key with 'bad' foods is to eat them in moderation so you don't binge.

    "Bhudda said to take food was to fuel the physical and to clean the
    systems of operation." Correct portions are measured to organ operation of digesting and assimulation. Not to age or tire body with over eating and digestive demands. Here are some of the meals suggested for warm days.

    Summer high protein meals
    Eat leaves of lettuce as you would bread and cut out white flour items
    Completely. Have only five small meals a day and do not consume anything after Sunset. Small meal means; contents not more than a cup full. Eat for fuel source every two hours, avoiding the feeling of hunger. That's ten hours of eating time a day! These can be made ahead of need and are better marinated anyway. Also can be carry in for lunch and meals while in transit.
    You can expand on amounts for number of people, considering a cup is a
    Meal portion.

    Well, as I know there is a word 'eat little but more meal', it mean You should not eat too much every time you taking your meal, instead of having more meal a day with little serving. The breakfast is the most important and should not miss it no mater how busy your are. In chinese society it is say that eat moderate because you need to start a new energize day but not end up with discomfort stomach pain, eat much at noon because you need to refill your energy that lost at morning and store the rest for later, eat less at dinner because you don't need much energy at night. This is also because everyone do not have much action at night and sleep after some time and ti is not good for digestive system. You could listen to thouvie for nutrient and you, what star girl say is right. Losing weight shouldn't be about a diet. It is a LIFESTYLE.
