another thing to avoid is carbs, especially when they're not from whole grain wheat producs.

your body needs carbs, it helps the brain stay healthy. Just be smart about which carbs to eat.

I am trying to lose weight. I am prediabetic and really don't want to cross that line. It is tough because DH isn't very receptive changing his diet (he is overweight too) and insists on bringing junk into the house.

Ohhh I have a sweet tooth, also! I eat craisins and almonds for a snack. The crunch of the nuts and the sweet of the craisins is super! Also, I love the Abs Diet book - there are so many yummy smoothie recipes in there, its like drinking dessert that is good for you!

I would be one of them raising hands willing to loose my weight. Well, I am not that fat but I am over-weight according to my height. I succeeded in reducing my weight by 3 kgs but since I was on a holiday at home, gained another 5 kgs. I do regular activities of playing tennis and cricket but it hardly helps.

In June and July I gained a crazy amount of weight. I've dieted before, and generally eat healthy anyway, so I am sort of in a quandry as to what to do. First thing I checked my thryoid blood levels with my dr so that's OK.

Now I'm eating a lot of fruits and veggies, and some protein. Light on the good carbs, too. Being that I'm 45, closer to 46, I guess I have to face the fact that I'm aging....
