Dieting Technique

techniques for losing weight -- best dieting technique


Dear Diet Tip,

I'm tired of yo yo dieting and the frustration of going on another diet. I need to lose 50 pounds and this time, keep it off. I learned my lesson and will never take diet pills or patches because I know they don't work. What are the best techniques for losing weight naturally?

Dear Reader,

As you learned, dieting pills and patches are gimmicks and most people have learned like you that they don't work. The best techniques for dieting are:
  1. Eat often and regularly. Most people go 4 to 6 hours without eating. This will slow your metabolism. Instead, plan to eat every 2 or 3 hours but eat smaller meals. Avoid bread or starchy foods and stick to a basic meat (6 ounces) and one or two veggies.
  2. Another technique for losing weight is to plan each meal and be prepared. Write down each of your meals and take between meal snacks with you to work or play. Use Tupperware or plastic sandwich bags for storage.
  3. Most women should eat between 1200 and 1500 calories per day to lose 1 pound of fat per week and men should consume between 1700 to 2000 calories per day to lose the same.
  4. Incorporate a fast pace daily walk for 30 minutes. Make it fun. Take a walkman or ipod with you so you can listen to your favorite radio talk show, news or music.
