Don't Wait to Lose Weight

Understanding Fats

It is important to understand the difference between saturated, polyunsaturated, monounsaturated, and trans fats when making diet and lifestyle changes to lose weight. Eating one of these types of fat rather than another can make a huge difference in the success of weight loss. This is because not all fats have the same effect on the body. Read more about the types of fat.

Keep A Food Diary

Writing down what you eat and when you eat is one of the best weight loss tools. Keeping a food diary will show your pattern of eating, your estimated calorie consumption, and ultimately the reason why you are having trouble losing weight. You just have to tell it like it is, between you and your diary. Read diary details here.

Portion Size Matters

As portion sizes have grown, so have Americans. Portion sizes used to be half of what they are today, which is a major reason that 2/3 of adult Americans are classified as overweight or obese. Even when eating healthy foods, portion size matters. Check out tips and tricks for measuring portion sizes in this article.

A Healthier Take On Dessert

If your sweet tooth is too much to bear after dinner, opt to make this brownie recipe for a healthier dessert. The recipe substitutes Splenda and whole wheat flour for sugar and white flour, both of which provide non-beneficial empty calories. View the recipe here.
