Dieting is hard enough; you never know what will work for you and what will not.  However, doing small, simple things can really help you achieve large results.  Here is a list to get you started.  1.  Don’t skip breakfast. 2.  Eat for your body type.  Figure out which way (high protein, 50-50, or more veggies) makes you feel good.
Your mom shares it. Your best friend shares it. Your spouse shares it. Your favorite magazine shares it: diet and weight loss advice. And more likely than not, all the advice they’ve shared has varied greatly from true (eat your veggies) to downright silly (sprinkle this powder on your pizza and the fat “melts” away) and from one person to the next.
I recently came across a one liner that really intrigued me. The question was something along these lines, 'When you eat, does your hunger come from below the neck or above the neck?"
Someone asked me the other day why I thought there was so much obesity, issues with diabetes, and other health issues connected to weight. I believe that some people are not only passed down bad genes, but bad habits.  I’m not discounting genetics all together, I’m trying to reinforce that none of us are stuck with parts of what get handed down to us.
You know how I feel about "magic pills" or "just eight minutes a day" re: weight loss.  There really is no big secret it's still about calories in being less than calories burned.  Having said that I do use a couple little tricks to jump start weight loss.
It's easy to become careless when you are out with a group of people and everyone is eating and drinking.  Those appetizers pack a punch in the calorie department!
Almost all of us love a good sandwich! If you steer clear of the mayo and cheese and fatty meats you can feel good about your lunch. Here is one of my favorites! It’s not too complex so it’s really easy to make; just 4 ingredients. 2 Slices of Wheat Free Bread 3 Slices of Turkey 1-2 T Mustard or Olive Tapenade As much as you want - Arugula
Fueling our bodies is what gets us through each work meeting, each test, each workout, each errand, each day. We need to constantly refuel every few hours and the choices we make reflect so many things; mood, energy, strength, appearance, overall feeling.
Chances are that right after a workout you’ll have a healthy appetite. But resist the urge to rush to the fridge and eat the first thing that catches your eye without first giving some careful consideration to what you body really needs. Otherwise that snack or meal could inadvertently undermine some of the positive benefits of your workout session.
Whether you’ve chosen to brown bag it for financial reasons or health reasons, what you put in that bag matters.  When you make good choices, you’ll find you can escape that mid-afternoon slump that affects so many people in your office.  Plus, you can make sure your lunch is helping you stay healthy, no matter what bug is going around the office this week.
