Top 10 Diet Tips To Reduce Your Weight

  1. Eat either three regular size meals a day or four or five smaller meals. Do not skip meals or go more than six waking hours without eating.

  2. Eat liberally of combinations of fat and protein in the form of poultry, fish, shellfish, eggs, and red meat, as well as pure, natural fat in the form of butter, mayonnaise, olive oil, safflower, sunflower and other vegetable oils.

  3. Eat no more than 20 grams a day of carbohydrates, most of which must come in the form of salad greens and other vegetables. You can eat approximately three cups "loosely packed" of salad, or two cups of salad plus one cup of other vegetables.

  4. Eat absolutely no fruit, bead, pasta, grains, starchy vegetables or dairy products other than cheese, cream or butter. Do not eat nuts or seeds in the first two weeks. Foods that combine protein and carbohydrates such as chickpeas, kidney beans and other legumes are not permitted at this time.

  5. Adjust the quantity you eat to suit your appetite, especially as it decreases. When hungry, eat the amount that makes you feel satisfied but not stuffed. When not hungry, eat a small low carbohydrates snack to accompany your nutritional supplements.

  6. Don't assume any food is low carbohydrates instead read the labels. Check the carbohydrates count or use the carb counter.

  7. Eat out as often as you wish but be a guard for hidden carbohydrates in gravies, sauces and dressings. Gravy is often made with flour or cornstarch, and sugar is sometimes an ingredient in salad dressing.

  8. Avoid foods or drinks sweetened with aspartame. Instead, use sucralose or saccharin. Be sure to count each packet of any of these as 1 gram of carbohydrates.

  9. Avoid Coffee, Tea and Soft drinks that contain caffeine. Excessive caffeine has been shown to cause low blood sugar, which can crave sugar.

  10. Drink at least 230 ml glasses of water each day to hydrate your body, avoid constipation and flush out the by products of burning fat.
