    Its sure not easy. But getting portions under control was where I started. To do this I started planning snacks between meals to keep from getting as hungry. Then as I went on I worked more and more on what kind of foods I was eating. Before long I came to actually enjoy it. For me anyway, I don't listen to too many people who say you must not eat this or you must do that. The old balanced diet still makes sense. The things I removed from my diet were bleached flour, most sugar, and no deep frying. I cut back on red meat quite a bit. And I increased vegetables and fruits. Once you get portions and good nutrition going, you just have to use common sense. Try to plan what you are going to eat each day and stick with it the best you can. At least that is what is working for me.

    I saw your post for the article discussing portion sizes. You will feel much better if you get a scale, about $20. I think this example is not helpful unless you are starting out at a weight 100 lbs. Use the scales and measuring cup religiously, eat good healthy food, and you will lose weight. Good luck to you! emoticon
