  • Diets and diet aids (if they even work) 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 5-6 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: http://www.drmcdougall.com/free.html
    Eat an apple or a big pile of vegetables before meals

  • anonymous its easy to tell someone to try physical activity and I would much rather do that then pop pills but I have had 2 surgeries on my left foot and needing another one and after standing all day at work its not that easy to come home and exercise. I used to be slim and trim and walk all the time until my foot gave out. I do eat healthy but I just cant burn it off due to my foot. I hate taking pills but I gotta do something so I will not get to over weight. Thanks for your input though.

  • I had reconstructive foot surgery on both of my feet so I know from personal experience that diet and physical activity ARE indeed achievable when you can't be on your feet.

    I wasn't able to be upright for 3weeks. Then crutches for the next 6.

    yoga, pilates, strength training....swimming

    your diet has nothing to do with being able to walk.
