Dieting is a life style change. The easiest option is to take it one day a time. Each time you make a decision, think about it. Do you really want to eat that or drink that? Think how hard some things are to work off. THINK then act. One step at time.
Slow and steady wins the race =}
I have found out recently that there is a solution to being hungry throughout the day. EAT more often! I began scheduling my meals 2 - 3 hours apart and drinking a bottle of water with each meal. I also made sure that my meals consisted of fruits, vegetables, and meats, eliminating all processed foods. Not once have I felt hungry with this plan. Do I desire the old foods, of course? Do I cave to the desires? 95% of the time NO! Because I don't need them. Weight loss is moving towards my goal.
The benefits of eating this way is a steady (but slow) weight loss, never feeling hungry, and content with what I eat.
