    The 10,000 steps plan is a good and sensible one. And the other link is a great motivator. I hope this helps.

    Many people go on diets some have success and some do not. I would suggest a very revolutionary thing to try. I have done this, it makes sense to me, I have lost over 30 lbs in about 6 months. I have maintained it for over a year now.

    First I went to a doctor for foods that my body my be allergic to. Common foods like certain meats, vet tables, fruits and sweets. I have myself analyzed and the results where very interesting. You see each person's body is different and processes food differently. Some bodies do not process vet tables like corn or squash, or meats like any fowl, pork, beef or chicken. All sorts of foods that are on a regular diet. Unless you do a food allergy test you will not know. The allergies may mastastize themselves in the body but thinking your system is in trouble and builds more fat cell to protect themselves. Well I a getting of track. So first get a food allergy check up.

    Then stop eating these foods. Eat the foods that are good for you and eat regular portions three times a day with three healthy snacks of some kind between the meals. This will keep your digestive system continue to work on burning calories all day long.

    Then start a walking or running program or exercise moderately program. Remember we are asking to lose weight not build muscles. You need to know the correct heart rate to have for your age to have your body go into the fat burning business overtime. How you find this heart rate is simple. The heart is max rate is 220 bps. Subtract your age for 220 bps, and take that figure and multiply that figure by 65% and 75%. That will give you the minimum (65%) and Maximum (75%) range you want to keep your hear rate at for a period of 45 min. Start out at least three times a day. In two weeks you will see a dramatic drop in your weight. By the way, only weigh yourself once a week. Also drink lots of water at least 3 quarts to one gal a day. You can also add unsweetened green tea to the drink list. As once you start to lose weight green tea will help maintain it also. I drink about a 3/4 of a gal a day of green tea and about 3/4 of a gal of water, some 100% Juice for a nice change.

    If you follow this way of eating for the rest of your life you can maintain your weight where you want it. By the way once in a while maybe once a month you can try those foods you love but your body hates if you like after the pounds come off.

    One more thing... try to eat as fresh of the products as you can, I am not completely sure but package foods or prepared food have a lot of preservatives in them and your body really doesn't like them at all. Good Luck

    you said out of the ordinary.......

    well, you know how we're always taught to eat "square meals"?

    I came up with this idea and lost 50 lbs in 4 months after my son was born.....

    What I did was eat only round things, whatever, whenever I wanted, never was hungry and felt better than ever. The thing is, you eat only things that occur naturally in a rounded shape. (this means no donuts, bagels, pepperoni slices, cookies, LOL you get the idea)

    oranges, eggs, peas, apples, grapes, lettuce, tomatoes, radishes, olives, peaches, cantaloupes, just go to the store and have fun looking for foods that are naturally round. When I got a craving for carbs, I ate oatmeal, the flakes are kinda round. But no bread, noodles, etc. No sugar, no soda, just water and black coffee or tea. You might even lose faster and more than I did. I even tried 'selling' this idea to a magazine, but I never heard back from them, guess it is too "out there" ?? Worked for me, though.

    Top weight loss tips

    Today there is too much information available on losing weight that has become more confusing and sometimes difficult to follow. It’s actually very easy to lose weight if you follow my weight loss tips.

    * Be in right frame of mind

    Before you can start any diet program you need to be in the right frame of mind. If you do not feel good about yourself you probably will not want to choose healthy foods. You cannot expect the act of going on a diet to make you feel better about yourself. The only way you can choose to eat a healthy diet to lose weight is if you have a positive self-image.

    * Eat whole food

    Top weight loss tips

    Eat whole foods that are as natural as possible. When you eat whole foods that are full of nutrients your body will know how much to eat and how much not to eat. You do not have to count calories because your body is a wonderful machine.

    * Eat fresh fruit

    Eat at least two servings of fresh fruit every day. Choose whatever type of fruit is in season.

    * Drink enough water

    Drink the best weight loss supplement known to man, water. Most people do not know the difference from being hungry for food or thirsty for water. A great deal of times people eat when they should drink. Most likely you will not feel as hungry if you are getting enough water. You will be satisfying the thirst, which is confused for hunger. Water also helps you digest food better. Drinking water before you eat will help fill you up.

    * Always chew your food

    Always chew your food well. Chewing your food well will ensure that you get the most nutrients out of your food. Getting the most nutrients will satisfy your body therefore you will eat less. Another benefit of chewing well is that it helps aid in digestion.

    * Take small meals

    Eat small, frequent meals in a day. Large meals tax your digestion system, making it work harder. Taking too much time in between meals makes you hungrier for the next meal.

    * Include protein at meal

    Include good sources of protein at meal, chicken, fish, legumes, peanut, cottage cheese, eggs or yogurt.

    * Shut off TV while eating

    Shut off the TV whenever you eat – that includes meals and snacks. Studies show that we automatically eat larger portions when we snack in front of the tube, and typically those foods are high in fat and sugar, which means excess calories!

    * Increase your physical activity

    Increase your physical activity. Most people are over weight because of a lack of physical activity. Start walking more, bicycling, walks your dog for longer periods of time, swim, dance and leave the car at home when you can. It’s important that you choose a physical activity that you enjoy because you’ll stick with it.

    Check with your doctor before starting any weight loss program.

    I tried Hoodia and......

    Hoodia has worked for me...and with no side effects.

    For all you doubters, here is the prior feedback for another Answers user who followed my advice:

    Asker's Rating: *****

    very good comment i lost 2 lbs in a week

    i think i can almost get in my leather dress, i can hit the town in no time


    #1. Be sure you are buying pure Hoodia...look for the import certificate on the website. No matter the price, if they do not display this, you really do NOT know what you are getting!

    #2. Be sure it is 100% Hoodia & not mixed w/other herbs, etc.!!

    #3. Keep in mind it stops your hunger pangs…you MUST remember to break your habit to always eat at certain times.

    #4. Drink a full 8oz. glass of water with it!

    You can read a good article about how it works at:

    Use a vegetable bean dip such as hummus instead of ranch dressing or maybe a fatty cream-based dip.

    Enroll in an active artwork class, such as sculpture or perhaps ceramics.

    Do your trips to market with a list and an occasion limit; that way, you're more unlikely that to stray into the refined foods section.
