Drastically reduce things such as bread, white pasta, noodles, sugar, cakes (although these last two are a bit obvious ) and potato in the form of crisps, chips, roasted or mash.

If you want to keep eating potatoes, pasta and bread, opt for wholemeal/granary types but keep it to a minimum and baked potatoes are best.

Be wary of fruit juice - it might be tasty and full of vitamins (depending on the juice) but is loaded with sugary calories.

Also, if you get a craving for chocolate, try a couple of squares of dark chocolate (letting them melt slowly in your mouth). It's richer so should satisfy you for less. I've also heard of people freezing chocolate as it takes them much longer to eat it which results in them eating less of it.

Alternatively try munching on some dates. Medjool dates are the nicest I've tried so far - they have the texture of the caramel from millionaire shortbread and are lovely and sweet with lots of fibre and vitamins. As with fruit juice though, don't overdo it with these.

Be aware of your eating habits and the balance between Carbs, Protein, and Fats. I also think proper sleeping habits will help as well! Oh dont forget exercise!

I noticed that drinking "sparkling water" with my meals helps fill me better than tap/bottled water. There are no additional calories and it actually helped my kick my diet coke addiction.

I'm with you... sparkling water just has that extra kick that makes it feel like something other that plain old H2O. I guess it is just the carbonation

While I agree for the most part, some of these suggestions do not apply depending on the diet you are following, i.e. fat-free/low-fat is not appropriate for Lo-carb diets. Generally speaking tho, very sound advise.

A couple of other tips I have learned over the years:

When you plate your food do not cover the border part of the plate, just the middle part. The plates we use today are about 25% bigger than they were in the past.

NEVER go back for seconds. If you have taken adequate portions the first time, put down the fork, drink a glass of water, get up and walk around, leave the table, walk the dog - in others words, do ANYTHING else. The feeling will pass. If you are still hungry after all that, have a piece of fruit, a lo-cal or low-carb dessert (whichever is appropriate for the diet you are following).

Hope these tips help - while I have only started 'dieting' a week ago, these two tips have helped me at least maintain the weight I was at without gaining for 10 years.

I know with the low carb diets this may not always work, but I find that if I eat my first helping during a meal and I am still hungry I go back for the low calorie, nutrient dense foods like vegetables. I also find that eating more meals during the day (only smaller) keeps me from craving the fatty, processed foods. The last one that really seems to work for me is to eat processed food including white and brown sugar, white flour, artificial sweeteners, flavors and colors etc. as little as possible. If it looks like it does in nature.... then it is what I will be more likely to eat. I have found ways of substituting more natural foods for processed ones. Butter over margarine(all fat in limited amounts, but we all do need to take in some fat in our diets) ,Wild rice or Quinoa instead of white rice etc. It is all about choices. Finding foods that are as natural as possible.

Default Fruit and chocolate.

If your family need a sweet after eating, cut an apple, banana, pear, melon , strawberries, in fact any fruit that you have into bit sized pieces.

Melt about 6 squares of chocolate with a drop of skimmed milk in the microwave or bain Marie.

Then everyone can sit and dip the pieces of fruit in the chocolate, of course do a quick dip in and out, that way the ratio will be more fruit less choc.

You will not feel deprived in anyway, and it is a healthy desert for the family even if they don't need to lose weight, and really yummy.....
