15 Best Diet Tips Ever

A really great article with tricks that work. My favorite is #6: Enjoy your treats away from home.

When you need a treat, Ellie Krieger, RD, host of Food Network’s Healthy Appetite, suggests taking a walk to your local ice cream parlor or planning a family outing.

"By making it into an adventure, you don’t have to worry about the temptation of having treats in the house, and it is a fun and pleasurable way to make it work when you are trying to lose weight," says Krieger.

And for those times you just can't get out? Krieger stocks her kitchen with fresh fruit, which she thinks can be every bit as delicious as any other dessert.

Now webmd is spamming here? Oh, sorry, maybe you're the writer, or the publicist for Ellie Krieger. Please spam somewhere esle. This article is terrible. Or better yet, peertrainer, please remove altogether.

OP here - Wow 12:08 poster - you seem to be very angry. I just thought they were helpful tips.

Also it was my first thread - if this is how people react to help, I don't think I'll be posting anymore.

good tips - I don't think this is spam - and I have posted spam alerts before.

So, thanks for the tips ... and the opportunity to tell you that there is more than one "spam alarmist" .. I thnk there are legions of us ..obviously, we do not always agree.

Spam alarmists with a sense of humor are the best kind ;)

This is like those tips that are like, "To lose weight, try eating less and exercising more." When I was planning my wedding all of those "budget tips" were the same, "To save money, try inviting less people or not ordering as many flowers." LOL.

I'm not trying to be negative and it's always good to post tips to help people but "Drink plenty of water" and "Think about whether or not you're hungry"? I just find those really funny. Like someone on a diet has never thought of drinking water before.

After dieting for a year or so, I started working with an RD - I had already changed some of my habits (like points 1, 8, 10, 14), some were never a problem (#4 and 9), and the best new thing she introduced me to was #2: Think about what you can add to your diet, not what you should take away. When you get all your fruit and veg, the rest does actually fall into place relatively easily -- and mentally, it's an unexpectedly liberating approach.

5:50, I used to think the "drink water" thing was an obnoxious no-brainer, but then I found myself in groups on this site with people who struggle to force down a single 16-oz bottle of water in the course of a day. I guess that's why it's #1 - it's the most basic and necessary. For many people it's the easiest positive change to make, and that sense of accomplishment can make the next step (e.g. eat breakfast, add a salad, take a walk, whatever) less intimidating.

I also read some pretty in-depth articles about the role of water in metabolizing fat and the demands it places on your liver...the last thing you want to do is make it harder for your body to rid itself of fat, right?

5:57...

You are so right about what you can ADD to your diet. I hit a plateau using diet and exercise, and always felt hungry. But I decided to take the approach of a balanced, not starved, diet...and now the weight seems to come off naturally :) Just today I thought "hmm..I haven't had red meat in two weeks..I may want to add some in the next day or two for my iron". I feel so much better since I've added spinach, beans, small amounts of red meat, and even fats and oils to my diet!!
