Do not worry so much about the number of calories you consume as about eating the proper foods. Rotate your foods and be sure to eat a variety of foods. Eat meals that consist of a balance of proteins, complex carbohydrates, and some fat. By eating balanced meals you get more steady blood sugar levels and the ability to burn stored body fat for long-term weight loss.

Eat more complex carbohydrates that also offer protein, such as tofu, lentils, plain baked potatoes( no toppings, except for vegetables), sesame seeds, beans, brown rice, whole grains, skinless turkey or chicken breast and whitefish(no shellfish). Poultry and fish should be broiled or baked, never fried.

Eat fresh fruits and an abundance of raw vegetables. Try for 1 meal per day that consists only of vegetables and fruits. Use low-calorie vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, cucumbers, green beans, lettuce, onions, radishes, spinach and turnips. Good fruits are apples, cantaloupe, grapefruit, strawberries, and watermelon. Use less frequently bananas, cherries, corn, figs, grapes, green peas, hominy,pears pineapple, sweet potatoes, white rice and yams. Eat foods raw, if possible. If heated, they should be baked, broiled, steamed or boiled. Avoid fried and greasy foods.

Drink 6-8 glasses of liquids daily. Herbal teas and steam-distilled water with trace minerals added are good. Herbal teas mixed with unsweetened fruit juice are good, use these between meals when a desire for sweets hits you. Drink sparkling water mixed with fruit juice in place of sodas.

Watch your fat intake, some is necessary, but make it the right kind. Avocados, olives, raw nuts and seeds, wheat germ are good. Do these in moderation (no more than twice a week. Eliminate saturated fats totally. Never consume animal fat, found in butter, cream, gravies, ice cream, mayo, meat, rich dressings, and whole milk. Don’t eat fried food.

Don’t take alcohol in any form, including beer and wine.

Use extra fiber daily. Guar gum and psyllium husks are good sources. Take fiber with large glass of liquid ½ hr. before meals.

Be active, take a walk every day before breakfast or dinner. Use stairs instead of the elevator. Walk or ride a bike as opposed to driving, whenever possible. Get regular aerobic exercise, such as walking, running, bicycling, or swimming and do exercises for strength, such as yoga or stretching exercises. Be sure to drink water during exercise to prevent dehydration and cramps. If you have been sedentary for some time, try exercising in water.

Change your eating habits- Always eat breakfast. Eat small meals every 3-4 hrs, don’t skip meals. Make your main meal lunch, not dinner. Some people don’t consume food after 3:00 p.m. Put less food on your plate, chew slowly, stop eating as soon as you are no longer hungry. If you get the urge to eat, put on a tight belt, this will make you uncomfortable and remind you that you want to lose weight.

Learn to ride out your food cravings. They peak and subside like ocean waves. Tell yourself that you can satisfy the craving if you really want to. Then wait 10 minutes. Try to do something to distract yourself. If you decide to eat whatever, then decide how much is reasonable and enjoy it, take one bite and savor the taste, eat slowly. Find out what causes your cravings. If you like to eat, while watching tv, try reading, drinking a big glass of water or taking a walk. Do not grocery shop on an empty stomach, you will be tempted to buy forbidden foods Avoid crash dieting. To maintain weight loss, calculate how many calories you need daily by multiplying your weight by 10, then add 30 % ( this # you can consume daily, without gaining back.


The basic math of weight loss is that each pound of body fat is worth 3,500 calories. To lose 1 pound a week(a good , safe reasonable goal) you must tip the calorie consumption in your favor by 500 calories each day. To maintain weight loss, you must adopt a healthier, more active lifestyle. This includes a natural, healthy diet and regular exercise. Quick weight loss tends to come back rapidly. A study shows that using artificial sweeteners tend to cause weight gain, not lost. Calories derived from fat are more easily converted into flab than calories from other sources. The need to eat something sweet after a meal is an acquired habit and can be broken. Eating a low-fat diet that is high in complex carbohydrates does not mean eating tasteless, bland foods. The goal is to reduce the total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol in the diet and to increase the amount of complex carbohydrates. Potatoes, pasta, breads, corn, rice and other complex-carbohydrates rich foods are not the cause of obesity, they are the cure.

Hydroxycitric acid(HCA) has proven very effective for weight management. It suppresses hunger and also helps to prevent the body from turning carbohydrate calories into fat. It is available in supplement form.

Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) helps to control the metabolism of fats. Taking at least 250IU of GLA a day helps to control the appetite.

Diet Esteem Plus from Esteem is a diet product that contains many of the nutrients recommended plus the herbal extract HCA.

Trace mineral boron may speed the burning of calories. Raisins and onions are good boron sources.
