    Hi, how about making some simple changes that will add up to weight loss over time? It's not a "formal" diet, so it won't leave you feeling deprived and wanting to cheat. This can be very effective:

    1) Weigh yourself once a week, at approx. the same time, wearing approx. the same thing.

    2) Try to make the healthiest choices possible when choosing food. For example, choose brown rice over white rice. Choose whole-grained bread over white bread, etc.

    3) Eat half of your normal portion at each meal.

    4) Never skip breakfast as it wakes up your metabolism and gets it working for the day.

    5) Only allow yourself one sweet on Saturday and one on Sunday (unless it's a special occasion like a birthday). Chew sugarless gum when you want because sometimes you just need a flavor in your mouth.

    6) Drink mostly water and plenty of it. Save sweet drinks for special occasions. Limit soda-even diet. Skim milk is excellent!

    7) Try to hit all the major food groups when choosing your food: lean protein, veggies, fruits, whole-grains, low-fat dairy.

    8) Be more active. Ride your bike, take a walk, put on some good tunes and dance, jump rope, etc. Try to do something that leaves you huffing and puffing for 30 minutes each day.

    You'll find some really good information on the website, including about five pages of weight loss tips, printable weight loss journal pages, printable exercise log sheets, motivational ideas, healthy recipes, etc.

    Good luck!

    Well the way I would loose fat is only eat 2 meals a day and food that is under 200 calories per serving. Also you need to excersise for like 30 minutes a day. Now that took me like two years to do, if your looking for like months to loose weight, it would be really tough!
