7 Foolproof Rules for Changing Your Diet
Personal trainer Jim Karas suggests that you build a support system by telling friends and family about your plan.
Stop Drinking Calories
New research shows that your body does not register liquid and solid calories the same way. If you drink orange juice, your body is still hungry. Eat an orange instead, and your body will register the calories in a way that makes you begin to feel full. So drink water rather than juice, soda, and milk-heavy cappuccinos, and be moderate with liquor. Try sparkling water with lime or lemon or, to ease the transition, dilute your juice with 50 percent water, either sparkling or still.
