Stay Fueled

Try eating three or four small meals, plus snacks to keep your energy up. Your blood sugar levels will be more constant, so you'll be less likely to run out of steam or reach for a calorie-laden treat.


The Nutritionist

I need some suggestions on how to lose weight. I have tried MANY diets to no avail. I know that I didn''t put the weight on overnight, but would like to see something different on the scales when I weigh myself. I''ve tried Weight Watchers, all I lost was my weekly fee. After about 6 weeks I took off 1/2 pound. I''ve read that my problem might be from carbs, but I love veggies. I tried the Atkins Diet and it worked for a while but I found it quite restrictive. Can you suggest something that I can do to at least take a few pounds off? That might motivate me into doing something. Do you suggest diet dinners that are packaged? Help me if you can. Desperate.
