I dont want to hear " eat 7 - 8 meals a day" or " eat a huge salad before each meal" and I dont want a copy and paste guide of the food pyrmid.
I want real advice that can actually help.
I dont eat to much because well I am just not hungry that often and I dont eat when I am not hungry. I drink water mainly. I walk ALOT. I just stopped my BC because being on that I ended up gaining way more weight. I just need so real life tips on how to try to lose weight.
Im 5 ft 9 and weight 265 :(
Id LOVE to get back down to 165 like I was in High school. I have had 2 kids so it is getting rough. I have a slow matablizim ( SP ) and it is really hard for me to lose weight.
Please if anyone can give real tips and advice to help drop the weight it would be great.
Thank you so much in advance

It sounds as if your metabolism is slow because you don't eat enough. I have a friend who sounds like you - she only eats one meal a day and is over 250 lbs. When the body does not get enough calories it holds onto calories and stores than as fat. Eating calories burns calories - this is one reason eating breakfast is so important. The body needs fuel to help it burn calories efficiently throughout the day.
The best advice I can give you is to keep a food diary and track your calories. Sparkpeople.com can help you with some of the answers you are seeking.
