    eat foods that are filling, tasty and nutrient dense.

    No wheat, rice, bran, potatoes, beans or nuts as they are high in phylates and block the absorption of calcium, magnesium and zinc.

    Phylates also inhibit digestive enzymes.

    No sugar, juices or soda. They spike your insulin and you end up even hungrier after eating them. These drastic insulin surges are very inflammatory.

    Eat lots of lean meat, fish and poultry. Some eggs, low fat yogurt and low fat cheese are okay

    Unlimited vegetables. Raw or steam and add a little olive oil and herbs

    Big colorful salads - dress with a little oil and balsamic vinegar or lemon.

    Don't forget high fiber fruit like raspberries and blackberries. Try a huge green salad with chicken strips dressed with a touch of oil and lemon. Throw in 1 cup of raspberries (a superstar) because they contain a whopping 8 grams of fiber!

    When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together.

    If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which

    will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow

    underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without

    exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For

    diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food

    after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on

    your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If

    you don't eat wheat then you don't eat all those sticky, fatty goey

    cakes, you don't eat junk food, and you don't eat biscuits. But your

    diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to

    calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising,

    start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the

    most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a

    lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack,

    disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target

    your problem areas for men and women. It's not necessarily to become a

    bodybuilder or even join a gym - a couple of dumbbells will help you

    to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).

    Perhaps you could try The Great Australian Diet discussed below.

    Created by Australian health guru Dr John Tickell, the Great Australian Diet is touted as a return to natural foods and natural eating patterns. Tickell, an obstetrician turned sports medicine specialist, claims that after travelling the world and studying foods, he has discovered several simple rules which can help anyone lose weight healthily.

    He describes the Great Australian Diet as "anti-Atkins, anti-CSIRO" and emphasises the importance of carbohydrates in the diet, saying that the "two most important foods we eat -fruits and vegetables- are carbohydrates". Dr John also criticises the low GI diet because, he says, it frightens people off eating carbs.

    The Great Australian Diet is actually rather complicated, and may not be as easy to follow as Dr Tickell seems to think. First of all, he replaces the glycemic index with the HI, or 'Human Interference' factor. This means that foods which have been highly processed, such as salami, white bread and white rice, are considered unhealthy, and are replaced by unprocessed alternatives- raw and lightly cooked vegetables, fish, especially deep water fish and sardines, and small amounts of lean meat. 2/3 of the diet should be composed of vegetables and fruits, and 1/3 'bonus' foods, which are essentially lean proteins, and after the initial two day cleansing period, which is very low calorie, 15 different types of plants should be eaten every day.

    Since no calorie guidelines are given, and only vague instructions to eat 4 or 5 nuts and so on, this may be the downfall of many dieters. After all, its pretty easy to forget how many nuts, seeds and grains you have eaten. It may also be hard for people on busy schedules to keep to such a demanding diet, since eating out is restricted really to grilled fish and an occasional steak and vegetables.

    But the Great Australian Diet is much more than just an eating plan. Dieters get points for watching the sunset, hugging their children and other 'coping' activities, and use gentle exercise techniques to strengthen trunk and arm muscles. Walking is also part of the diet, which claims over 91 days to re-educate the body into natural rhythms. One of the selling points for me at least, is the resting weeks- after each three weeks on the diet, there are two weeks when you are allowed to eat freely, and recuperate. However, although it seems pretty healthy, the Great Australian Diet is never going to be voted easiest diet of the year.

  • you can design your own diet. Base it on vegetables and fruits. Why? because they are rich in fiber and low in calories. They fill you faster and you don't eat much calories. You also need protein sources in your diet like eggs, beans and lean meat. Healthy carbs sources include beans, brown rice and most fruits and veggies. Healthy fat sources include avocados, peanuts and olives.

    Before you make up your diet, you need to know your TDEE. Just google "TDEE".

    If you wanna see some tangible weight loss results within a few months, it will be best to add some HIIT cardio workouts to your daily routine. You can youtube "HIIT cardio workouts" for more information.
