I’ve been in the health field for 30 years and I have yet to see anyone who loses weight by dieting that doesn’t put it all back on and then some.
Your goal must be measurable—if you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it. Using the examples above, you can weigh yourself
weekly to see if you’re approaching 130 pounds or you can try on clothes to see how you’re progressing toward that size 8.
Your goal should be something you must work for, but also something you can reasonably attain. For example, a goal of losing 20 pounds in one week is likely not attainable, but losing 1-3 pounds per week is.
Your goals must be based in reality—otherwise, you’ll give up. For instance, saying you’ll never eat chocolate again for the rest of your life isn’t realistic, but saying you’ll limit yourself to a small piece of chocolate once a week is.
Any diet that requires you to take pills, eat only their foods, drink concoctions, skip meals, eliminate whole food groups from your diet or a combination thereof is a FAD

In order to properly nourish your body, you must feed it real
Not processed, packaged, “stuff-in-a-box” but real honest to goodness FOOD. Things like fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, meats and poultry, fish, whole grains, dairy, eggs and healthy essential fats.

foods like these, your body can get nourished the way it needs to be—the way Nature
Kraft, Betty Crocker or General Mills) intended.
When you're properly nourished:
- You get full faster and eat less overall because nourishing foods fill you up better than junk.
- Real foods are inherently lower in calories than junk foods, so you’ll take in fewer calories.
- When you're properly nourished, you'll also STAY full and satisfied longer, so your chances of binging or late night snacking will be dramatically reduced.
Your digestion is important too.
If your foods are not being broken down like they should be in the digestive process, you're not getting the maximum nutrition from them.
Since your hunger signal is triggered by a need for nourishment, if you’re not properly assimilating nutrients from your foods that can cause feelings of hunger which leads to overeating (and weight gain).

Exercise is a dirty word to many people, but you've GOT to move your body if you ever want to see that scale number come down and stay down.
Now don't even start with your excuses.
I was recently running at our local lakeside park and observed a man who had braces on both legs, was using a walker, was laboring to breathe, yet was still plugging along walking and getting exercise as best he could.
So now what’s your
Stop being an excuse-maker. Get your doctor’s OK and get moving.
