  • Plenty of water, plenty of exercise, and very small meals 5 times a day (instead of 3 larger meals).

  • I agree with justnancyb. You could also try Green Tea. Studies have shown that Green Tea aids in losing weight by boosting your metabolism. You mentioned that you feel tired alot?..Make sure you're taking some sort of multivitamin as well.

  • Never skip breakfast and get up and move-try to stay active.
