  • The healthiestdiet that anyone can benefit from is a diabetic diet. It's rich in vegetables, fruits, healthy carbs and lean meats, poultry and fish. The balance is all around what everyone should be eating

  • Weight watchers. You can eat any foods.

  • everything in moderation works well try weight watchers. Crash diets or diets that require you to stick to one or two food groups don't really work long term

  • Better than a diet...
    Eat at least 5 SMALL meals a day...
    Physically put your fork (or food) down between each bite (often counting bites helps)
    If possible excersize first thing in the morning (BEFORE EATING)
    Do not eat just before bed time (your body doesn't digest food in your sleep... )

  • One more thing! I find that avoiding "diets" is key. Do simple common sense things that really melt the fat away like:
    1) try not to eat after 7:30 at night
    2) always eat a nice size healthy breakfast (do not skip)
    3) consistently excersise 30 minutes every day (easy right?) Walk to the store, ride your bike more, workout in front of TV
    4) look at things that are full of sugar, salt & fat and say to yourself "this is what made me fat to begin with" I don't need it, walk away
    5) drink lots of water as it fiils up your stomach and gives you a "full" feeling
    6) line up people that inspire & motivate you as you will need accountability - this is hugh!!!
    7) educate yourself on the things that you eat & drink all the time, that may be working against you unknowingly

    God bless you - You can do it!!!
