      Just eat less. Take away a small portion of your usual food and eat a little less, exercise a little more.
      Rinse, repeat. smile

      Eat more homecooked meals or brown bag lunches. Eat a variety, including more fruit and vegetables (preferably raw) in your everyday diet. Most importantly, pay attention to your serving sizes, and eat only when you are hungry.

      Fish, fish and more fish. High in protein low in carbohydrate. Have it simmered in water with onion. Have it grilled, baked, whatever but be sure that it's fresh.

    You can either choose for meal replacement diet or natural healthy food diet. Meal replacement diet should include meal replacement shakes and meal replacement bars, and the result is faster. Whereas for natural healthy food diet are consists of low calories, low sugar, low carbohydrates and low sodium food and mass consumption of vegetables and fruits. You may check my hub out or visit to my site for further info <snipped link - do not post links in the forums>

    Eat fresh food...fresh fruit and veg is cheaper than packaged.  Mix it with a little meat/chicken/fish (you can get canned tuna in springwater- unflavoured - quite inexpensively).  Exercise a little everyday - say 30 minute walk will get you started.  No junkfood!
    Finally, have breakfast every day.

    Fish is definately a good source of protien and a healthier choice than choosing beef or pork.  Grapefruit provides acids which help break down foods you eat.  One good source of antioxidents (which will rid your body of toxins and provide you with more energy) is pomegranates.  Bananas are also another good source of energy, although temporary, it doesnt have any kind of down affects.  Try to eat as many fresh vegetables, and fruits that you can.  Although some believe that juices are good and helpful, alot are loaded with sugar and have very little actual fruit juice in them so make sure to read the labels.  Grape juices I've found are usually the safest and also a source of antioxidents and good for the heart.

    Everything in moderation. Portions do seem to be the biggest issue for just about everyone...I had some big issues with it for a while until I spent a month measuring all of my food so I could get a firm idea of what "one portion" means.

    You don't have to crash diet, in fact it's not at all advisable for healthy weight loss, but cutting back a bit and trying to steer away from certain foods to some degree can help. A huge percentage of people have too much animal protein in their diets, so watching the consumption of meat (and try to get leaner meat for what you do eat...I generally eat poultry, fish, and then buffalo, elk, or venison when I want red meat) can really help...some people cut back dairy too, but I've never been able to make myself limit my cheese. Cooking at home can also ensure that you have the power to remove as much extra grease from the food as possible and use healthier oils in smaller amounts.

    Starches will get people pretty fast, my own weakness is potatoes, but again they just have to be cut back rather than cut out.

    I also agree with everyone here that raw fruits and veggies are GREAT big_smile. If you're a big meat eater, I've found that putting a portion of meat on top of a salad or mixing it up in stir fry or the like with tons of veggies helps get the greens in there. My other half likes to make me tuna sandwiches that are about 3/4 finely-minced veggies with a little bit of fish and dressing thrown in tongue.

    Finally, don't forget that healthy weight loss is a long process. These diets that promise instant weight loss and what-not are generally helping get rid of water weight, or starving the body and resulting in muscle loss. Muscle is heavier and you will see a much larger difference on the scale than if you are losing fat...in fact, in the last three months I haven't lost a single pound, but I have lost three inches off my waist. Got to love the measuring tape. It has taken me nearly two years to lose 55 pounds, but in that time I have gone from a 44 waist to a 32 and it keeps coming off without effort now because I'm used to (and enjoy) the lifestyle changes that caused the weight loss.

    yep. moderation in all things. they interviewed this 113-year-old guy yesterday and he attributed his longevity and slim body to moderation in all things - he said don't eat to fullness - push back the plate while you are still a little hungry. i'm a big believer in that!
