Slow weight loss: of 1/2 to 1 pound a week is healthiest and requires that you cut back 250 to 500 calories a day from your baseline intake when your weight was stable. Be sure to get enough rest and to take in adequate fluids. Limit simple sugars like juice and pop and processed grains like white bread, white rice and pasta. Be patient. It will happen.
