  • Cut out the sugar, diet drinks to, as they make you retain water weight, cut out fatty foods, and cut down your calories. Get out and walk everyday. There is NO quick fix to loosing weight. You have to have the will power and true desire to sacrafice to loose the weight. 20 pounds by X-mass ought to be easy. you have LOTS of time.

    I also use my body wraps and lost 10+ inches.

  • Diets and diet aids are temporary fixes. Unless you learn how to eat healthy for life, you will not be able to maintain a healthy weight and will stay on the gain/lose roller coaster - frustrating for you and hard on your body. Drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water every day. Eat 6-7 servings of whole grains (brown rice, whole grain bread, etc.) every day. Eat 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, in at least 3 different colors. Eat at least 2 servings of legumes every day. You will lose weight. You will have more energy. You will maintain a healthy weight. You will get sick less often. You will be setting a wonderful example for your children. You can get free meal plans and recipes from Dr. McDougall, or find his books at your local library:
    Eat an apple or a big pile of vegetables before meals
