    It's a free nutrition/fitness plan site.

    Do a search here, there's a SparkPeople group on Cafemom, as well as a CafeMom group on

  • Do the Atkins diet. Get the book, or go to a Group here, its called "Low Carb Diet". I lost 40 lbs in 6 months. No breads though, no rice, pastas, nothing with carbs. Lots of meat, fruits and veggies, and lots of water. I dropped it quickly and have kept it off for a year. You can message me for more help!

  • i shed pounds by just making sure i ate every 2 to 3 hours - eat a cup of vegies or fruit, 2 ounces of meat (this fat will help you from feeling hungry too soon), 1 cup of rice or noodles or 2 slices whole wheat bread with jelly or butter (this will give you carbs for energy and also help you stay full longer).
    even if you feel full at the 2 to 3 hour mark be sure to eat this will keep your metabolism burning the food you intake and working off the fat in your body (if you dont eat at the 2 to 3 hour mark your body will start storing the food it gets cause it feels its recieveing a shortage and you will not loose anyhting)

  • I'd say to avoid all diets that involve cutting any nutrients out (like Atkins). I'm a firm believer, you should listen to your body's cravings and satisfy. Eat everything in moderation. Stay active. It doesn't have to be the gym. You can do fun things, biking, tennis, active play with kids etc.
    Every time I need to lose a few pounds, I eat everything my heart desires, but I cut my portions in half. Good Luck!

  • mainly if you cut out your sweet drinks and drink mainly water and when you need something different drink diet, plus the diet you already came up with should help out a lot... good luck
