I have found if you eat fruits and vegetable that have ripened on the vine, your apatite is reduced and you will lose weight.
I agree. Eating fruits has really helped reduce my sweet tooth too. That is a good tip about sodium. I think keeping a food diary has helped me the most too. It really has helped keep me honest about what I eat and has made me make healthier food choices (because I don’t want to see junk in my food diary and feel bad about it:) Been using a program called OnTarget Nutrition and been working great so far. I think it’s neat because its a weight loss program but it focuses on my daily nutrition too. Interest to learn more about, and try, the 6 week plan to healthy eating.
Well done to you, i found it extremely hard cutting out even the smaller items on my list but eventually got there….i found drinking more water helped in alot of ways, i hate plain water but found i enjoyed carbonated water!

1 small change a week is all it takes. Baby steps before a run… It may take a little bit longer to reach your goals but your changes of dropping a very much reduced.
I very much appreciate the approach of this plan, because the goals are clearly stated in the beginning.
If you mentally prepare yourself, it is much easier to stick to your routine and you will finally achieve your dream-weight.
