    Drug free?

    I think you mean you will not be taking diet pills.

    Great! Those things are really bad for you and don't work anyway.

    Best diet to follow is a natural way to lose weight and get healthy & fit.

    Make a list of your favorite (natural) foods from each of the 4 food groups.


    fruit & veg group: apples, bananas, green beans, tomatoes & whatever else you like

    dairy group: milk, cheese, yogurt

    meat group: chicken, beef

    grain & starch group: rice, potatoes, bran flakes

    all foods must be natural, no boxes, no cans, no packages of instant or anything with directions & man-made ingredients

    Now determine how much of each food equals a 100 calorie serving.


    1 apple, 1 med. potato, 1 ounce beef, 1/2 C. rice, 1C. skim milk ~ all equal about 100 calories.

    Now follow a plan of 1200 calories a day (ideal for weight loss) using the following formula:


    1 starch/grain

    1 dairy

    1 fruit


    2 veg or 1 veg and 1 fruit

    1 protein


    2 meat

    2 veg

    1/2 starch

    1 fruit

    1 dairy

    follow that, and you'll lose weight quickly, you will have healthy foods in the right combinations for good nutrition, and you'll lose really fast especially with 30 minutes or more a day of brisk exercise, like walking fast.

    After you get to the weight you want, maintain it by adding another serving of dairy or two, and some extra fruit and protein to your diet. Slowly add extra food, like 100 calories a day for a week, then 200, etc. until you are no longer losing but not gaining either.

    But keep that basic formula for eating the rest of your life and you'll never have to "diet" again.

    Losing weight and being healthful isn't approximately "being on a vitamin." You will have to be watching to make everlasting tradition alterations that you'll keep for an entire life. If you do not see your self consuming a exact method eternally, then you definately should not be consuming that method in any respect. That being mentioned, the healthiest option to consume (furnished you have no distinct nutritional demands) is to have a vitamin inclusive of complete grains, culmination, greens, and lean meats. It's now not a fad vitamin or a few distinct mystery--it is almost consuming the meals that do probably the most to your frame. You'll have all of the protein, carbs, and well fat your frame demands. The Mediterranean vitamin is most likely the nearest vitamin you're going to discover if you want to comprise the ones matters.
