Get It When You Want It!!

Do not give up on never getting your favorite foods when on a diet. Eat healthy, but when you really have a craving for a candy bar, ice cream, cheesecake, or some other calorie laden delight, eat it then!!
If you do not get what you are craving, you will probably eat a lot more unhealthy stuff!!

Eat 3 a Day

You need to eat to lose weight. I have found out through the years that you cannot lose weight if you starve. Your body hangs on to the fat and you do not lose any after you have lost a little fluid. Eat at least 3 meals every day and a snack, but keep it healthy and low on fats & sugars.

Small Bites

I have found that eating about 5 to 6 mini meals a day keeps my weight down. If I eat 3 big meals and a snack every day, I will gain more than I should. I am not a very active person so I have to do what I can without relying on exercise to help me keep my weight down.

Soda Versus Water

I love sodas, but know that they are not good for us since they have no nutrients whatsoever. I drink at least 1 a day, but no more than 2. When I drink a soda, I drink as much water as was ounces of soda behind.
