  • go off grains(btw corn is a grain too), stay away from potatoes, no HFCS, and limit or eliminate cane sugar(still sugar is better than artificial sugar). Eat plenty of veggies & fruits in place of the grains. The weight will melt off. Plus getting off sugar will greatly help your moods. A good fish oil supplement can do wonders for your mood too(can take 6wks to kick in).

  • Cut your intake in 1/2 and exercise at least 1/2 hour a day. If you do that you will not have to worry about "what" you eat.

  • Eat what you usually eat, but fast every other day (just juice or juice and fruit).
    It cuts your cal in half but doesn't put your body in conservation mode and it doesn't make you feel like you are denying yourself because its just 1 day.
    drops a pound or two a week and shrinks your stomach so you actually eat less on the regular days

  • if you need chips...I need chips try these making these Kale chips.  I love them but I never get to eat many because I can't keep my kids from eating them all, lol

  • OMG - Fast for a Day.... I'd die!
    You need to eat to loose weight. And snacking can be healthy, just have to make right choices.... grapes, carrots, raw veggies INSTEAD of your chips!

  • You wouldn't die, its really no big deal since you can eat fruit.
