Re: Diet and weight loss
This isn't really a diet as such but... From personal experience when I was a 'bigger' lady..
Eat exactly the same food but less of it, that way you dont feel like you are dieting.. and you still enjoy eating..
Have smaller meals but on a smaller plate so the plate still looks full (it fools your mind, honest)
Have a large glass of water before meals so some of your tummy is full before you start eating, you will eat less that way..
Eat slowly, as you will feel full quicker..
As soon as you start to feel full, stop eating.. dont try to clear your plate
If you feel peckish between meals try to have a low calorie snack, or better still if its not long until your meal time dont have anything and wait for the meal..
Try to avoid junk food if you can..
Alcohol is chock full of calories, so drink as little as possible..
I have the best diet in the world now.. well kind of.. stress kills my appitite and I've had a very stressful year workwise so lost weight (too much weight though) so now I am quite happily on an anti-diet - eating everything I fancy (chocolate, cakes, icecream, etc, etc..) when ever I fancy it to try and put weight on.. its not really working though as I have a very busy job and am running round like an idiot all day.. at least I'm not losing anymore weight though
I hope this helps..
