  • Diets & 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 & will stay on the gain/lose roller coaster - frustrating for you, hard on your body. Drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water every day. Start moving; do some sort of exercise, even walking, for at least 20 min/day, at least three times a week. Eat 5-6 servings of whole grains (brown rice, whole grain bread, etc.) every day. Eat 7-8 servings of fruits/ vegetables every day, in at least 3 different colors. Eat at least 2 servings of legumes every day. You will lose weight, have more energy, & maintain a healthy weight. You will get sick less often & be setting a wonderful example for your children. You can get free meal plans & recipes from Dr. McDougall, or find his books at your local library:
