My doc also doesn't like dairy. She feels most people have problems with it and this is more suspect for her when they have difficulties losing weight. AND truth be told, when I gave up dairy, my weight loss improved a little. I'm using coconut milk instead (with my coffee, etc.) and it IS helping. My ONLY exception is feta cheese (not cow's milk!) which I have often and Greek Yogurt (which I have only once in a while). Honestly, this has helped me. Not a huge difference, but enough for me to notice.

I've always hated eating breakfast so early, and never feel hungry immediately after waking up. BUT, for the past couple months I have been forcing myself to eat an early breakfast, and I find I have much less appetite the rest of the day. So I agree with this 100%. Your mileage may vary, but it works for me.

It's sort of counter-intuitive. You'd think by delaying your calorie intake, that would allow you to eat less calories over a day, but I just found it so much more tempting to go overboard at night when I didn't eat breakfast.

Your plan is similar to a well known diet called "the grapefruit diet" where you eat portions of high-carb fruits and exercise often. Though diets like those will lose you the weight, they aren't necessarily that healthy. You'll lose the weight but most of the time you won't keep it off.

The key to a healthy balanced diet is not to ban or omit any foods or food groups but to balance what you eat by consuming a variety of foods from each food group in the right proportions for good health.

Quite possibly false. Your post is dated December 11, 2010. I've found an earlier upload of this dated December 5, 2010 (and references an earlier blog) which is word for word what has been copied here. That's called plagiarism if indeed the blog was not written by you.

Lightbulb get some SLEEP

the one tip that I haven't seen on the forums that makes a HUGE difference to me, is to get enough sleep.

I find that if I am sleep deprived that I have absolutely no will power to resist the foods I am trying to cut back on, nor can I keep my portions under control. I believe there are some studies that have shown similar results.

of course, if you're tired, you also don't feel that you have the energy to get any exercise. lack of exercise can negatively affect your quality of sleep. a vicious cycle if there ever was one.

personally, I've found that listening to a relaxation tape when I go to bed can help me fall asleep faster - it helps me stop thinking about all the things I need to to tomorrow! there are some good relaxation apps for the iPhone too.

I second that tip, Michelle. Sleep has been shown in studies to aid in sleep loss.

Vito, did you get enough sleep last night? Read what you just posted .

Seriously, I can second (or third) that. I have read that too little sleep increases the production of cortisol, the stress hormone, which is linked, I believe, to belly fat. I've also noticed from personal experience that when I'm sleeping well, I'm on my game with diet and exercise; unfortunately, I'm in a bad round of sleeping lately and trying to tweak it. I try for seven hours but realistically, it's usually more like six.
