I’m starting a new diet. and i always give up in the middle. I’m thinking of starting an eating log but i don’t know if that will help me. Any tips or pointers on what to eat, exercise, and stuff like that?

    No bread.

    1. Add just one fruit or veggie serving daily. Get comfortable with that, then add an extra serving until you reach 8 to 10 a day.

    2. Eat at least two servings of a fruit or veggie at every meal.

    3. Resolve never to supersize your food portions—unless you want to supersize your clothes.

    4. Make eating purposeful, not mindless. Whenever you put food in your mouth, peel it, unwrap it, plate it, and sit. Engage all of the senses in the pleasure of nourishing your body.

    5. Start eating a big breakfast. It helps you eat fewer total calories throughout the day.

    6. Make sure your plate is half veggies and/or fruit at both lunch and dinner.

    Are there Any Easy Tricks to Help Me Cut Calories?
    7. Eating out? Halve it, and bag the rest. A typical restaurant entree has 1,000 to 2,000 calories, not even counting the bread, appetizer, beverage, and dessert.

    8. When dining out, make it automatic: Order one dessert to share.

    9. Use a salad plate instead of a dinner plate.

    10. See what you eat. Plate your food instead of eating out of the jar or bag.

    11. Eat the low-cal items on your plate first, then graduate. Start with salads, veggies, and broth soups, and eat meats and starches last. By the time you get to them, you’ll be full enough to be content with smaller portions of the high-calorie choices.

    12. Instead of whole milk, switch to 1 percent. If you drink one 8-oz glass a day, you’ll lose 5 lb in a year.

    13. Juice has as many calories, ounce for ounce, as soda. Set a limit of one 8-oz glass of fruit juice a day.

    14. Get calories from foods you chew, not beverages. Have fresh fruit instead of fruit juice.

    15. Keep a food journal. It really works wonders.

    16. Follow the Chinese saying: “Eat until you are eight-tenths full.”

    17. Use mustard instead of mayo.

    18. Eat more soup. The noncreamy ones are filling but low-cal.

    19. Cut back on or cut out caloric drinks such as soda, sweet tea, lemonade, etc. People have lost weight by making just this one change. If you have a 20-oz bottle of Coca-Cola every day, switch to Diet Coke. You should lose 25 lb in a year.

    20. Take your lunch to work.

    21. Sit when you eat.

    22. Dilute juice with water.

    23. Have mostly veggies for lunch.

    24. Eat at home.

    25. Limit alcohol to weekends.

    How Can I Eat More Veggies?
    26. Have a V8 or tomato juice instead of a Diet Coke at 3 pm.

    27. Doctor your veggies to make them delicious: Dribble maple syrup over carrots, and sprinkle chopped nuts on green beans.

    28. Mix three different cans of beans and some diet Italian dressing. Eat this three-bean salad all week.

    29. Don’t forget that vegetable soup counts as a vegetable.

    30. Rediscover the sweet potato.

    31. Use prebagged baby spinach everywhere: as “lettuce” in sandwiches, heated in soups, wilted in hot pasta, and added to salads.

    32. Spend the extra few dollars to buy vegetables that are already washed and cut up.

    33. Really hate veggies? Relax. If you love fruits, eat plenty of them; they are just as healthy (especially colorful ones such as oranges, mangoes, and melons).

    34. Keep seven bags of your favorite frozen vegetables on hand. Mix any combination, microwave, and top with your favorite low-fat dressing. Enjoy 3 to 4 cups a day. Makes a great quick dinner.

    Can You Give Me a Mantra that will Help Me Stick to My Diet?
    35. “The best portion of high-calorie foods is the smallest one. The best portion of vegetables is the largest one. Period.”

    36. “I’ll ride the wave. My cravings will disappear after 10 minutes if I turn my attention elsewhere.”

    37. “I want to be around to see my grandchildren, so I can forgo a cookie now.”

    38. “I am a work in progress.”

    39. “It’s more stressful to continue being fat than to stop overeating.”

    I Eat Healthy, but I’m Overweight. What Mistakes Could I Be Making without Realizing It?
    40. Skipping meals. Many healthy eaters “diet by day and binge by night.”

    41. Don’t “graze” yourself fat. You can easily munch 600 calories of pretzels or cereal without realizing it.

    42. Eating pasta like crazy. A serving of pasta is 1 cup, but some people routinely eat 4 cups.43. Eating supersize bagels of 400 to 500 calories for snacks.

    44. Ignoring “Serving Size” on the Nutrition Facts panel.

    45. Snacking on bowls of nuts. Nuts are healthy but dense with calories. Put those bowls away, and use nuts as a garnish instead of a snack.

    46. Thinking all energy bars and fruit smoothies are low-cal.

    What Can I Eat for a Healthy Low-Cal Dinner if I Don’t Want to Cook?
    47. A smoothie made with fat-free milk, frozen fruit, and wheat germ.

    48. The smallest fast-food burger (with mustard and ketchup, not mayo) and a no-cal beverage. Then at home, have an apple or baby carrots.

    49. A peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat bread with a glass of 1 percent milk and an apple.

    50. Precooked chicken strips and microwaved frozen broccoli topped with Parmesan chee

    I think that no one should go on a diet, all you have to do is eat five a day , drink lots of water and get up your bum and do some exersize:D

    for me i have been doing the clean eating diet where you only eat clean unprocessed food(fruit, veggies and meat) if you can mix it up and not get bored then it is the perfect diet because that is how our bodies are suppost to eat. never ever drink calories ( pop and so on) thats one major mistake alot of people make and it is so eay to avoid.
    if you clean eat and dont cheat then i promise you you will lose weight! you should only be eating to live not living to eat..i hope this helps.

    Eat mini meals through out the day.Whole wheat bread rather than white.Eat chicken,turkey and pork.Keep the red meat under control.Eat fresh fruits and vegetables.If you eat salads,opt for low calorie dressings.Drink tons of water,if you drink soda,make sure it’s diet and regular contains a lot of sugar.I drink green tea every day,it’s full of antioxidants and a natural diuretic.I like to use equal or sweet and low in mine.Cooking your meat is just as important,opt for baking or broiling instead of frying.Try to eat fish as often as you can,anything you like including tuna.As far as exercise is concerned,do something that burns calories,I use to have a stationary bike and would ride it every night for at least an hour.I would put on some head phones and listen to my music and cycle away.I truly got addicted to doing it so much so that I broke the frame and had to have it welded back together.When you do an exercise like that the endorphins kick in from your brain.Other than that,just remember that the first 5 pounds that you lose are water.Hope this has been of some help to you.

    Want to try? I’m not saying it was easy.
