Eight - 8 oz Glasses Every Day!

Having a little common sense will help you lose weight!

You probably think I’m going to tell you to eat a ton of popcorn or rice cakes or drink algae or some other strange thing that you would never really want to do, but the fact is, none of those things will help you lose weight in the long term. If you want to eat filling foods to help you lose weight, the key is to eat a plentiful variety of pure, healthful foods.

If you want to suppress your appetite, lose extra weight, and have lots of energy and vibrant health, you should eat plenty of fresh fruits and veggies, beans, legumes and nuts, lean meats, fish and poultry, and whole grains. You should also drink lots of purified water - eight, 8oz glasses every day.

To feel full, drinking pure water is a great thing to do. Very often thirst is mistaken for hunger. When you feel hungry, drink a glass of pure water. You will be surprised at how satisfied it helps you feel. If you are still hungry, eat an apple, banana, orange, carrot, or any other fresh delicious fruit or veggie. Eat a lot of them!

The fiber in fresh fruit and veggies will help you feel full. As a bonus, drinking all that water and eating fresh fruit and veggies will give you beautiful skin and hair, lots of energy, and help alleviate any stiffness you have been feeling in your joints.

If you don’t want to feel hungry during the day, eat very often! Eat five or six light meals. Use a smallish plate and fill it half full of fresh fruits and veggies, a quarter full of lean protein (meats, fish, poultry or beans) and a quarter full of whole grains (brown rice, whole wheat bread, etc.) If you are very hungry, you can pile the fresh fruit and veggies up as high as you want!

The key to losing weight and feeling great is to feed your hungry body lots of good, pure food and water and move around a lot - walk, bike, swim, dance. Sometimes, you may want to have a piece of cake or a candy bar, and that’s OK; however, if you want to become strong, healthy and slim and stay that way, you must develop the habit of taking care of yourself and eating well every day!

You hit the nail on the head when you said, "The key to losing weight and feeling great is to feed your hungry body lots of good, pure food and water... You see eating is my problem, not too much, but too little. If I could conquer that I'd be home free with my weight. I never did like to eat a lot, but since menopause that has become a problem, ergo losing weight is a problem. Anyway your hub is very practical, with lots of good advice, some I can still use, nevertheless. Voted up, useful, interesting.

Yes, well, you know, Freta, I just think it's crazy the way people want to cut calories and eat all kinds of supplements and super-foods and other nonsense. Plain, good, whole food is what we need for health. I am in menopause, too, and this is how I eat. I am actually about the size I was in high school, but not as skinny as I was when I was working out hard and trying to be thin. I feel more like myself at this weight, and I am healthier, too.

With the eating spree last holiday season, this is a hub worth reading! Of course eating healthy is important and getting the right amount of calories is essential. So it pays to intelligently choose the food you will eat.

Thanks Moonlake! Yes, I think that's true. I try to just eat a sensible diet and cook from scratch as much as possible, and I stay healthy and in pretty good shape! ;D
