At some point, just about everyone struggles with their weight. People go on a diet, lose weight, only to gain it back, and maybe more. With all the clutter in the diet marketplace it's hard to lose focus on which plan works best. The fact of the matter, from everything we've read on line, is that you need to do what's right for you and your lifestyle.
Every diet will instruct you to drink more water. Exercise more and drink less soda, so we'll leave those out. Instead we found some tips, through various sources, that got us thinking about weight loss.
Here's one from www.dietsinreview.com : eat a diet full of color. Make sure your plate is a rainbow of color with fruits and veggies.
And speaking of that plate, don't fill the entire plate with food. Leave room so you can see the design of the plate. Better yet, many experts say order the kids portion and you'll definitely be eating less.
And at www.livestrong.com we're reminded to eat fat, just make sure it's the good fat.
Then there were interesting "tips" on www.1is2fat.com : "the purpose of getting together with people is to enjoy their company, not eating." Then there's this one: "Eat to live not live to eat. Overeating can kill you."
So remember to drink you water, skip a soda or two and work out a bit more. But also remember diets are not fool proof and you will have a bad day, and that's ok as long as you get back on the plan.
