1. Just say no to fruit juice. Juice is fruit with the fiber removed. Not to mention, most of them are packed with sugar. Opt for the real thing instead. 2. Stick to water. All of those sugary soft drinks are simply adding excess calories to your diet and to your waistline. Start drinking only water and a bit of tea and you could start seeing changes in your body very quickly. This is especially true if your a soft drink junkie. 3. Create a new good habit each day. Eating often becomes a habit rather than a way to nourish ourselves. To get out of bad eating habits, it’s easier to change one habit per day. I have recently started doing this and have found it to be extremely effective. On the first day I gave up honey on my oatmeal and on the second day I converted all of my snacks to fruits and vegetables. 4. Change your lifestyle. A diet is simply a way of eating. It’s a long-term commitment not a one-time event. Create permanent lifestyle changes. Good habits are the key to success when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight. 5. Get plenty of sleep. Your sleep time is an essential component to losing weight. Researchers have found evidence to show that better sleep habits are instrumental to the success of any weight loss plan. 6. Eat 5-6 small meals per day instead of 3 big meals. Keith Klein, World-renowned nutritionist and author of “Get Lean” is quoted as saying, “If you haven’t figured it out yet, let me spell it out for you: depending on your goal, it is either five or six meals a day or forget about reaching your potential!” Yes, it may seem strange to eat 5-6 meals a day when you’re trying to lose weight, but this is the secret to getting to the next level in your fitness goals. Eating 5-6 small meals per day is the key to a fast metabolism. Every time you eat a meal, your body’s metabolism starts up a new spin cycle caused by the thermic effect of food. In fact, a portion of the calories you consume are burned through the simple act of digestion. This thermic effect can range from 3% to 30%. Lean protein causes a thermic effect of up to 30%. This means you burn 30% of the calories you eat from chicken breast, fish, and egg whites. Vegetables have a thermic effect of around 20%. However, fats and refined carbohydrates have a very low thermic effect of only 3%. This is one of the reasons it’s so easy to gain weight when you are eating lots of carbohydrates and sugars. When you’re eating 5-6 smaller meals that are centered around high protein, fibrous vegetables, your body will burn through the calories. A higher metabolism creates a fat-burning machine. The longer you practice this meal plan, the more muscle you’ll develop. The more muscle you develop, the faster your metabolism will become. It’s a win-win situation. Unfortunately, it’s something that way too few people are taking advantage of. Most people try to starve themselves and in the process they kill their metabolism. In doing that, they also kill their fat-burning potential. Five or six small meals a day accelerates your body’s natural rate of calorie burning. Best of all, frequent meals also prevents binges and controls cravings. When you’re eating every three hours, your body stays satisfied and your energy levels stay high. 7. Don’t avoid all fat. Yes, I know it might sound like a strange suggestion when trying to lose weight, but it’s true. Our bodies need certain types of fats just to survive. They’re called essential fatty acids. You may have heard of them. They go by the name of Omegas 3, 6, and 9 and they are essential to a healthy diet. 8. Add some variety to your meals. The key to success is having options. Keep your mouth happy with a variety of different meal choices. 9. Get your Fiber. The inclusion of fiber into a well-balanced meal slows the digestion of the carbohydrates. This results in long-lasting energy instead of the short bursts of energy offered by simple carbohydrates. 10. Slow Down… If you are looking to lose a few pounds, then simply slow down. There are so many Americans who rush through their meals. When you rush through your meal, your body doesn’t have time to send your brain the signal that you’re full, which results in overeating. Take time to enjoy your food.

Diet and exercise. A good plan would be: Breakfast: low fat milk on cooked 9-grain cereal (from health food store), mixed with cooked oatmeal and wheat bran. Add some nuts and berries. Drink hot Ovaltine. Lunch: Egg, tuna or turkey sandwich on whole grain bread with bean or alfalfa sprouts and yogurt w/fruit. If you had meat loaf for dinner, bring a meat loaf sandwich (NO mayo). On cold days, a squatty thermos of hot chili, split peas with ham or beef stew. Snacks: Fresh (not canned) fruit: banana, orange, apple, kiwi, grapes, peach, nectarine, cherries, pineapple. No chips and nothing ever from a vending machine. Dinner: salad with white meat chicken and fresh (not canned) veggies: tomatoes, 2 kinds of lettuce, 2 kinds of shredded cabbage, shredded or sliced carrots, alfalfa or bean sprouts, zucchini, hard boiled eggs, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, tofu, cottage cheese...Instead of dressing, squeeze 1/4 tomato over it. Or homemade bean/vegetable soups; great way to recycle leftovers. Or omelet: In blender, whip together eggs, tofu, cottage cheese, onions, garlic powder. Cook with mushrooms, chopped tomatoes. Foods to avoid: junk food, pastries, desserts, sugar, salty foods, syrup (even canned fruit in syrup), peanut butter, fatty/greasy foods (pork, wieners, chops, bacon, salami, pizza), pasta, potatoes, white bread, rice, canned veggies, ice cream, fast food, soda, chips. And of course no tobacco or alcohol in any form. Both of those add wrinkles and destroy your brain. No oil except olive and mac nut. Coffee also rots your brain. To keep your skin clear, drink water. Veg. juice is good too. But not canned juice (too much sugar.) Join a gym; they have all the equipment and staff to show you how to use it to get the look you want to achieve. Much cheaper than buying your own equipment. Also hiking, biking, jogging, bowling, swimming, badminton, tennis... If you lack energy to exercise, take stress B vitamins. To lose weight, try an appetite suppressant.

Try getting a medicine ball and doing stomach exercises with that. It is more effective than just sit-ups or crunches. The best exercise is sitting, crossing your ankles and lifting your legs so your knees are bent and your calves are parallel to the floor. Then hold the ball in both hands, lean back a bit and twist your torso back and forth until you can touch the ball on the ground right next to your hip. Also, I know you didn't want a diet, but I did this one and it's super easy and really targets your stomach. There are foods that have good fat and for some reason help you lose fat in your stomach, such as avocados, nuts, olive oil. Just try adding them into your diet where you can in moderation. Good luck!

With regards to diet, try to cut down to about 1200 a day, or somewhere near. This will help with your cheek and neck bone, and all of the others For arms, try holding a sugar bag in each, as use them as weights. Do about 10 mins a day. Flat tummy, jackknife, yoga Thighs, 40 mins a day of walking, running, cycling, swimming etc. Butt, when your sat down, just tense your muscles, and then relax. Keep doing this for as long as possible. Hope that helps :)

Hey, we should become friends.. Haha, it's EXACTLY what I want to do. For dinner, cook grilled chicken, grilled fish, homemade stir fry, and a lot of veggies added in there. For breakfast, cook scrambled eggs, reduced sugar oatmeal, whole wheat toast, special k cereal, and even english muffins with a little honey on them. Arms-pushups, and dumbbells Tummy-crunches, and each week add two and you'll work your way up slowly Thighs-a lot of brisk walking and running(You can look up exercises to help) Butt-look above to the thighs Calfs-look to the thighs Cheek bone-you'll see once you start shedding pounds. :) You can do it, and once you lose the weight, you need to stay on track of everything to keep it off!

It will help but like all prepackaged meals they can be high in sodium. The key to eating healthy is to stick to the outside of the grocery store instead of the middle. This is where you will find the fresh foods. I would suggest you read the "Forever Young Diet and Lifestyle" it is written by Dr. James O'Keefe & Joan O'Keefe RD. This book is not actually a diet but educating you on your food choices and exercise. No fads here! Also, if you want to follow the South Beach Diet and find it difficult skip step 1 and go to 2 you will still see results and the book has recipe suggestions.
