See Dr. and eat less: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and leafy lettuce (little or no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie but surely avoid sugar or simple starch calories.

A 33-year-old member asked:

Could you tell me what are good exercises to get in shape and loose weight at home?

Daily activities: Make your daily activities more difficult - take the stairs, park further away, bike/ walk to work/ store, sit on a swiss ball/ at your desk and stand up every time you answer the phone, or lunge/ hop/ jump from place to place in your house. Things like these may seem small and silly, but the increased calorie burn can add up over time. Don't forget a healthy diet!

PreferThis:P-R-E-F-R: Information! Take time to read-up on nutrition and various weight loss concepts.Try to avoid hype-filled stories trying to get you on one program or another. Do some serious research on-line and try to decide for yourself.If overwhelmed by it all keep thinking: Protein,Roughage, Exercise,Fluids,Rest--each a category of its own.Find something you can at least start with and go from there. Good luck

Excellent goals: Create a program for exercise and a food plan. You can consult w/your doc so its safe and healthy for you. Even brisk walking 20-30 minutes daily can be helpful. Overall, more more protein and less carbs can help. Peace and good health.
