Holidays are the most challenging times when it comes to eating healthy.
It is hard to keep the weight off and your body healthy while still enjoying yourself this holiday season.
Being health-conscious doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t enjoy the holiday season, but
I’m afraid most of us give up our healthy eating habits to “indulge” during the holiday season.

Knowledge is the first step to a successful weight loss journey. The more you know, the more likely you are to do the right thing.
I agree, but want to add that knowledge by itself is not power. It is the application of knowledge that yields sustained success. Knowledge is very important, but action is the key.
Simply put, you must change your nutrition - permanently.

Hunger is the most significant problem with weight loss and a diet that results in hunger will never be successful. It is hard not to eat when we get hungry. It goes against human nature. When we get hungry, we tend to want to eat more. The feeling of an empty stomach is very difficult, if not impossible, to tolerate and at some point we give in. You diet is not going to work for you if you are hungry or tired all the time.
It is hard to force yourself to eat less. But it's possible to choose what we eat. Some foods keep us full and satisfied, while with others hunger returns soon after eating.

In May 2010 my weight was 261 pounds. Since then I learned a lot about physiology, nutrition, health and exercise science, and I believe I know more about losing weight than an average person. When it comes to shedding pounds, it is what and when we eat that counts most. If you change what you eat and how you eat, you will be able to lose weight. I did it and it worked very well for me. I lost 91 pounds without feeling hungry.

This storm forever changed our lives. Hurricane Sandy brought horrific reality to New York. I could see with my own eyes the nature’s devastating power. I thought that NYC was immune to dangers like this.

Gaining weight is hard to avoid when we eat in front of the TV. As long as food is readily available, most of us will continue to eat, well past the point of satiation.

Even if you don’t feel hungry in the morning, eat breakfast anyway. It may be a challenge, but this is something you can do. Breakfast will help you prevent hunger later on. It will reduce your appetite and cravings and help you stick with your eating plan all day long.
This is my average day, but I generally eat the same things from day to day:
1 slice of 99% fat free turkey breast,1 fresh tomato hot tea (no milk, no sugar).

Start making these changes now. Stop waiting for the right time to start losing weight; it never comes. There is no reason you can't begin your weight loss journey right here, right now. No more excuses! Don't wait for the "right time". Do it now. Take advantage of the motivation you're feeling now.
Start losing weight now - this very moment. There is never a “best moment” to start losing weight. The best time is NOW.

I drink a lot of tea and water. I also take Omega-3 to make sure I have enough of so badly needed healthy fats. I totally eliminated foods that have empty calories and those that are filled with unhealthy fats, sugar and artificial ingredients.

I ran in today’s Race for the Cure 5K in New York Central Park.
Over 20,000 participated in today’s event. Some ran, and some walked.
According to RunKeeper app, my time was 26:55 minutes and average pace was 8:27 min per mile.
Weather was nice, and it was a good run. Massive participation and support for the cause was impressive.
I ran the same race a year ago. I remember it very well because it was my first official 5K race. My time was 32:22 and average pace 10:13 then.

Try this no-fail way to stay accountable – buy and use a scale. Invest in a digital scale and weight yourself on a scale daily. Your digital scale will be a top tool in losing weight. I use a digital scale that gives me an accurate readout to the nearest .2 pounds every time I step on it.

Fat Brazilians? Research shows that the number of Brazilians suffering from obesity is growing.

I think it is important to have realistic expectations about what exercise can and cannot do for weight loss. Exercise alone as a weight loss method is particularly ineffective without paying attention to food intake. Individuals who think that they can lose weight simply by increasing their exercise program and not controlling their food intake are almost always embarking on a futile journey.
For people who are already overweight, even 60 minutes of physical activity each day may not be enough to halt weight gain.

Just because you are struggling does NOT mean you are failing. Every great success requires some kind of struggle to get there. Don't blame yourself if you aren't perfect. Accept that you made a poor choice, but don't let that poor choice influence the rest of your plan.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day: More than 10,000 successful dieters who have lost more than 30 pounds and kept it off for more than a year say that eating breakfast is a key part of their plan, according to the National Weight Control Registry.
The best breakfast is one that contains both protein and fiber to boost your energy levels and help you stay satiated throughout the day
Read interesting article on Yahoo.
I believe that the role of exercise in weight loss has been wildly overstated. Exercise isn't necessarily helping us lose weight and weight loss can be achieved without exercise. Understanding this fact will help many people who try to lose excess weight so they can concentrate their efforts on what really works (changing what and how we eat). I am a walking example.

While no single approach, formula, or plan for weight loss can work perfectly for every person. The eating method I describe below worked for me. I have lost weight almost effortlessly, and most importantly, have kept it off.
For two years I have been using this method and I lost weight, lowered my cholesterol, and lowered blood pressure. I lowered blood pressure so much that I was able to discontinue blood pressure medication entirely. I have new level of energy,
You may want to look at what worked for me and then adopt it to your unique circumstances, lifestyle, likes and dislikes.
I eat fresh non-starchy vegetables, fresh low-sugar fruits, lean protein (skinless grilled chicken breast or fish), whole grain bread, and healthy fats (daily Omega 3 supplement daily). I also take multivitamin supplement once a day. I drink hot tea (no milk, no sugar) three times a day and lots of water.
I generally eat the same things from day to day. Here is my “secret” that allowed me to lose weight without going hungry and with no exercise.
Blueberries, blackberries, or apple.
1* slice of dry, 100% whole-grain toasted bread with 2 slices of 99% fat free turkey breast.
1 fresh tomato
Hot tea (no milk, no sugar)
1 capsule of Omega 3
Grilled skinless chicken breast, lots of romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and green or red paper. All vegetables fresh and uncooked. Once a week spinach.
Hot tea (no milk, no sugar)
Twice a week I have fish instead of chicken breast.
Grilled skinless chicken breast, romaine lettuce, tomatoes. All vegetables fresh and uncooked.
Hot tea (no milk, no sugar)
Fresh apples (uncut)
