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.

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.

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.
