I've lost 40 pounds since Christmas. Since I have two small children (one who is 9 months old) and not much time to prepare a special "diet" meal for myself, my diet pretty much consists of either a slimfast or atkins diet shake for breakfast, a turkey breast sandwhich with mustard on wheat bread with lots of veggies no cheese (usually six inch sub from Subway) and for dinner I have salmon seasoned with spicy herbs and lime with brocolli or asparagus and brown rice. The most important thing to remember though is to watch your sugar and white carbohydrate intake and to also watch your portion sizes. A serving of carbohydrates should be the size of your fist. A serving of protein should be the size of the palm of your hand or a deck of cards and a serving of vegetables should be the size of your hand cupped. And drink lots of water. No cokes.
As for exercise, I do yoga and pilates. It's relaxing and easy but still keeps me active. With a new baby, I appreciate the quiet time it gives me. GOOD LUCK!!

How am I doing?
This is a $60 billion a year industry right now and it is only going to get worse.
We constantly hear "our bodies are all different." Our bodies are not all different!
Every single one of us that wants to lose a pound of body fat needs to consume 3500 calories less than we burn. End of story. Over and out!
A healthy diet and exercise work every single time! Every time.
I have been through it all and know what's it about. The main thing is to stick in there. You can't be an addict to food and never exercise if you want to live a healthy life and keep the weight off. I've worked out, done every diet, and all types of classes.
Nothing works, besides dedication and intelligence towards the subject of losing weight.
First, depending on how much weight you need to lose, your diet is the first concern. You can't eat 10,000 calories a day and expect the weight to come off, even if you are exercising a lot. Which brings us to the next thing. Duh, Exercising...
This is a must especially if you need to a lot of weight. Get at least 30 mins of some good hardcore exercising. Do some cardio, in the long run, it's good for the heart.
However, I find the most hardest part of losing weight/keeping it off, in my diet. It's so hard to keep your fingers out of the cookie jar or those chocolate goodies. I've found a great addition to help any one out, it's a natural weight loss supplement called Proactol. Now don't get all crazy on me and say diet pills don't work. That is true, but not in this case. This one isn't meant to burn pounds while you sit on the couch. It's an appetite suppressant, along with being a fat binder. I saved money on the pills at theweightlossplace.com along with getting some good info. It basically makes those fingers not go towards the cookie jar. For me it's the best pill I've tried and I've tried cupboards full. Now this doesn't mean you have to follow my foot steps but I've successfully lost roughly 70 pounds and keeping it off til this day.
Well good luck and remember what I said, Dedicate.

The key to starting a successful diet plan is to make the changes slowly. You can't go from eating garbage everyday to eating healthy overnight. The changes required to do something like that are huge and should be spread out over a period of time. If you make the changes too quickly, your body won't have time to adjust and you'll probably quit before seeing any results.
At first, you shouldn't worry about your calorie count. When you start replacing unhealthy junk with healthy alternatives your calorie count will naturally be reduced because healthy choices are generally lower in calories than unhealthy ones. Start by reducing the amount of junk you eat (chips, cookies, pastries, doughnuts, soda, sugary drinks). Replace unhealthy snacks with nuts, fruits, salads and yogurt.
You can then start getting rid of products made from refined flour such as white bread/pasta. Replace these with foods made from 100% whole wheat flour (check the nutrition label). The difference in the two flours is that whole wheat contains more fiber (and vitamins & minerals) which slows down the digestion process. This will keep you full for a longer period of time which will help you eat less throughout the day. Other foods that are high in fiber are fruits, vegetables, oats, beans and legumes.
Eventually, you will need to start monitoring your calorie intake. Losing weight depends on you eating less than you burn. If you're not losing weight, the problem is that you're either eating too much, exercising too little or a combination of both.

From what I've learned from my own weight loss journey, is that it's all about adopting a new healthy lifestyles rather than a diet. Diet is a dirty word because they aren't meant to work. Diets will work only as long as you keep it up. Once you go back to what you were doing before the diet, the weight comes back. So the healthy lifestyle change is whats important. It's the small, more subtle, changes that you can keep up forever, that make the difference in losing weight and keeping it off.
Finding a community for support has been a big part for me. It helps you get additional motivation and helps you meet people with similiar struggles who can offer similiar advice. I've found two great places for this being Weight Watchers (though you have to pay for that), and Sparkpeople.com (which is free).
I also listen to Podcasts on fitness and healthy nutrition to help me keep motivated and pick up new tips.

I lost 50 pounds in 5 months. The doctor said that I did it at good rate. I keep it off for over 2 years, the due to some extenuating circumstances I gained 15 pounds back...but am on way to losing it.
I did this by eating smaller, snack size meals, every 2-3 hours. This keeps your metabolism going so you burn more calories, and keeps your blood sugar level so you won't feel as hungry.
I highly suggest foods high in protein and fiber. Low fat, but NOT non-fat. Drink plenty of water. Keep your meals small.....most of them 200 calories or less. There are a million 100 calorie snack products out there to help. Dinner can be a little more....I love Lean Cuisine dinners. Don't skip dessert! I personally love anything chocolate and ice cream is great. I like Skinny Cow ice creams or Bryers / Dryers double churn ice cream. Eat foods you like or you won't stick to it.
Go for walks every day or at least do some sort of exercise program. But walks are easy to fit into anyone's schedule and give you time to unwind and think.
Good luck....I hope you reach your goal

Try eating 5 - 6 small meals a day instead of 3 large meals.
That's every 2 hours or so. Go for whole grains and leave white rice, white bread and high fat foods on the grocery shelves. Eat veggies, eggs, chicken, pork, (very little beef)
and healthy snacks like low fat wheat thins, light string cheese, hershey 60 calories chocolate sticks, sugar-free fat-free pudding with fat free topping, or sugar-free jello.
Fresh fruit. (I buy it frozen) Try a half of sandwich (light mayo, lettuce, tomato, peanut butter on whole wheat) at noon and the other half at 2pm. Never eat off of anything larger than a salad plate. You'll never feel hungry, deprived,
or on a diet. Take baby for lots of walks every day. I lost
1 1/2 to 2 pounds a week (total of 30 pds.) and have kept it off eating this way. Good luck to you. It worked for me.
Oh, watch your beverages. Make sugar-free tea and drink a lot of cold water through the day. No carbs after 9pm.
A little cheese is okay though, and will give you a lot of energy the next morning.
This diet with it's frequent food intake and cold water really revs up your metabolism and burns those calories. Best of luck to you and baby.

The best diet you can go on, is not even a diet. It's learning to eat by your lifestyle. If you restrict yourself from certain foods, you will end up binging on them or yur body won't get the nutrients it needs. The best thing you can do is to only eat when you are hungry. Stoop eating when you are full. Have a variety of foods. Go by the food pyramid. that way you know how to feed yourself effectively.
And then there is exercise. If you eat healthy, (and you can eat healthy without restricting yourself from foods) then exercise will aid in how the food is used. This explains why it's good to have some fats and sugar can be used for energy (as long as it's portioned).
The food you take in is used to fuel you. So the diets (fads), don't over examine them. Just learn to eat when you need to and only what you need. Focus on how your body feels and what you need to take in to aid with your needs.
