Updated on September 18, 2011

Diets for Women - Lose Weight Without Dieting!

Losing weight isn't about a complete overhaul. Instead it's about making small changes that add up in the long run. Simple changes to your diet are permanent, thus there's no need to continue the harmful cycle of crash diets. Plus with all the lifestyle changes available to you, you have the freedom to choose what is easiest for you.  

Fill Up on Food in the AM

We've all heard the saying “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” Well with weight loss it's true! Skipping breakfast will leave your blood sugar unstable and cause hunger craving. Instead focus on having a well balanced breakfast that will make it easier to make better food choices throughout the day.

Keep an Eye Out for Certain Ingredients

Not all 'health foods' are healthy. Make sure you look at the ingredients of your foods and get rid of those containing partially hydrogenated oils. Diets sodas should be first on your list of habits to kick. The ingredients in diet soda will actually cause you to keep fat stored up in your body. Studies show that those who drink diet soda on a regular basis are far more likely to be overweight then those who do not.

Get Your Fruits and Veggies (The Sneaky Way)

You can still make all your favorite recipes, but when possible throw in some fruits and vegetables. For example, if you enjoy a piece of cake, top it with some fresh strawberries.

The Magic of H20

Inadequate hydration is a main cause for hunger cravings. This is because most of the time we feel 'hungry', we are actually thirty. So stay well hydrated and watch your foods cravings disappear.

Eat Protein Ever Couple Hours

Protein takes a long time to digest, so it keeps you feeling full for a longer period of time. Getting small amounts of protein throughout the day will ensure you don't get too hungry and go on an eating binge.

Change Your Plates

Studies show that we eat whatever is on our plate. So by switching to a smaller plate, you can feel satisfied while secretly cutting your calories.  

Stir In Some Flavor

Study's show that adding spices like chili powder, curry, ginger, and cayenne pepper make your body fell more full. So spice up your favorite dishes.
