I'm currently seeking meal plans, I'm looking to change my ways of eating, so that I can lose weight effectively. I feel that nothing works for me. maybe because I have yet to come across the right plans, any advice? any plans that any of you have tried that works? I will be exercising along with it, but I know for the most part, healthy eating is more important when it comes to weight loss. I'd like to know what foods help speed up metabolism, what foods are BAD, what to cut out, what I should eat, and if its a myth that NOT eating after 7 or 8 is best? I have a huge goal of 40 to 50lbs. But would like to start losing now, so that I can atleast see some progress by my birthday next month. I'm just very depressed when I step on the scale, don't know what to do. People around me arent exactly helpful, they all say "but you look fine" and that's not good, because I have gained alot of weight and aren't comfortable at all Any suggestions? I'd greatly appreciate all of your advice

i lost 10 kgs just by not eating at night time anything is fine in day time but not at night have a heavy breakfast like a queen lunch like a beggar and dinner like a sparrow

Best Answer

I don't eat after 6pm. I eat a huge breakfast. Spicy foods help speed up your metabolism. If you cut bread and sugar the weight will literally fall off. So if u want any junk food you have to get it out of your system in the morning. Maybe a big salad with meat for lunch and a fat free yogurt for dinner.

My wife only eats plain yogurt, salad without dressing, boiled chicken, and vegie stir fry. No alcohol. It works great but it tastes like ****. She does it for a few months each each year and it works well for her.

Best Answer

Oh Yes! And I was introduced to that"Greek Yogurt" that tastes just like iced cream! YUM!

Best Answer

a low fat salad

Weight Watchers works... its an eating plan that you can stick with forever. Limit carbs and fats, exercise 3-5 times a week, drink lots of water. I lost a lot of weight on WW and have kept it off for many years now. Good luck!

Best Answer

Yes, I don't know what it's called, but it really works! Breakfast: 1/2 cup of bran flakes or All Bran cereal with milk and some fruit, except bananas (too much natural sugar.) Lunch: with a slice of wheat bread make an open-faced tuna sandwich using 1/2 a small can, and very little low cal mayo, with a slice of Cheddar cheese on top. Melt in the microwave. Dinner: a wheat pita pocket filled with some Cheddar cheese, tomato slices, sprouts and mushrooms. Pour low cal dressing on it. It doesn't sound like enough reading it, but give it a try...it fills me up. Your only drinks are milk and water, and you can have fruit any time. You lose about a 1/2 pound a day, and don't feel hungry! I've lost 17 pounds so far! **And the ingredients are really cheap!**

Best Answer

awesome!!! how long did it take you to drop the 17lbs , and was this with or without exercise?

Best Answer

I started in the middle of Oct., and there are some times where you follow it, but don't lose weight...and there are times where you go off it, of course. And I didn't want to lose too fast, so I used November as a "maintain" month. I haven't been exercising.

Best Answer

Eat breakfast, lunch and dinner.<br />
<br />
B = ceral one day, oatmeal next day 1% milk both.<br />
L = anything in small portions, with lots of non-animal products<br />
D = small bowl of vegie soup, mini bagel, fruits<br />
<br />
Main thing, exercise at least 2 hours a day. Walk and light aerobics is enough, but YOU MUST BE CONSISTENT!!!<br />
<br />
I went from 236 pounds to 164 pounds in about 8 months and have been maintaining the 164+- for the last two years or so doing just that.<br />
<br />
Good luck.

I've heard of your diet, and I think I'm going to quit mine for a while, and go on yours. Another thing that I've found that helps me is letting myself get hungry for an hour before eating dinner.

Best Answer

Being hungry doesn't work for me. I tend to eat more than I should if I'm hungry. When desperate for a bite I snack on a few fat-free garlic flavored croutons. That usually satisfies my lust for "junk" food.

Best Answer

so basically "non animal products" means, this is a no-meat meal plan/life style?

Best Answer

"Anything in small portions" (as stated in my original answer). The word anything includes animal products.

There is NO EASY MARKET out there that will help you to lose weight in a matter of months. I don't know you or how much you are trying to lose, but DROP ALL OF THE PILLS! Exercise, vegetables and fruit are the ONLY things that will abet you in your weight loss. It's gonna be tough, but it's going to be wherewithal, stamina and HARD WORK!!! AND THE WILL! <br />
<br />
Do you have that? The WILL to stay strong and be at peace with yourself? The WILL to get up at early mornings and go and work out? Just start off slowly....Just a few reps at low reps at a slow training training program. Not heaving weight at heavy reps. This will keep you TONED! (I used to be a personal weight trainer). LOTS of water to flush the system out. As you gradually progress on a calendar, you can increase. My Goodness, I wish I was still training....<br />
<br />
Please lots of veggies.do not steam them too much, carbs (pasta, potatoes, etc) but not too much, if you have to snack, snack on raw popcorn, apples, watermelon, other fruits or veggies for fiber...oh I could give you a wealth of info.....

Best Answer

While I disrespectfully disagree with what some others have said, my belief is to NEVER give up the food you love. You have to balance..in moderation....For example..my favorite is Stouffers Mac and Cheese! I couldn't live without it! I eat half a box at night, with veggies, tons of milk and water, then go work out! How is that gonna hurt! I'm still loving life and the foods I enjoy so much! I have butter on my asparagus, too! And broccoli!

Thank you for your great advice! if you have any other advice, I'd love to hear!

"Nourishing Traditions" is a cookbook I keep at home and reference it for nearly every meal. It is not only a cookbook but explains exactly what foods to use and why. It is ba<x>sed on foods that are found in a traditional diet ie, natural foods like dairy, meat, vegetables, grains, etc, and cuts out all processed foods. It was written on the basis of the research of a pioneer nutritionist: Dr Weston A Price. As a nutritionist myself I cannot stress the importance of correct nutrition to a healthy lifestyle and of course weight management.
