Tips when starting a diet

DOWNEY – Diets can hurt more than they help – the key is to keep it simple and make it a lifestyle in such a way that your stick to it for life.
Try some of these nutrition tips to help you with your weight loss goals:
*cut your portions in half; by doing so, you cut your calories down
*eat something every three hours; this prevents you from overeating
*eat most of your carbs earlier in the day; this will help you drop body fat
*if you have a sweet tooth, cut up fruit and put a little Splenda on it
Take it a day at a time; if you cheat, it’s not the end of the world. Just get back on it and watch the pounds drop off and stay off
