Please reconsider the "fast fixes" because they are detrimental to your health and can lead to malnutrition! Exercise and moderate carb levels are best, stick with whole grains, fruits, and veggies! Check out the Glycemic Index at www.shaklee.net under Weight Management. All the info and menus are free!

Doing it for yourself is one thing, doing it for money is another. Health factors must come into mind. Exercise, low carb diet (unless you have low blood sugar, which should be checked before EVERY diet), counting calories is good, drink lots of water before meals. Ice cold is better, since it takes the body to burn calories to warm the water. Consult your doctor before this "task" your taking on. JMO

If you really want to lose weight then do so while incorporating good health. Eat lots of fresh fruits and veggies and stay away from processed,dead food. The weight will come off without effort and you will be feeding your body with nutrition. If you have a juicer, start juicing veggies. Delicious and nutritious and cleansing to your body. Best of luck to you!

My son was dieting with a group from work. I decided to go along with him and lose some weight myself. He lost 25 #'s, and I lost 26 #'s in just 3 weeks! I asked my doctor first about our diet, and he agreed that it was healthy. All we did was stop eating anything with starch or sugar. No breads, pasta, rice, corn, etc. It's been a year since the diet, and we've kept the weight off, even though we're back to eating everything we cut out! Try it.

Whatever you do make sure to drink plain water all day long. Try to drink at least 2 qt. or work you way up to it. Do not drink caffeine drinks. It will deplete your water supply your body needs especially the liver. The average body loses 8 to 12 cups of water a day. Water makes up 70% of our bodies and 75 percent of our brain, playing a vital role in the proper functioning of the body, and making it an essential part of a healthy diet. Drinking water also forces fat to be used as fuel, making it one of the main keys to success in shedding any extra pounds.

And, without adequate water, kidneys are unable to function properly - prompting the liver to pick up the slack. This causes additional problems for dieters because the liver cannot metabolize stored fat as energy, resulting in more fat being stored in the body. Furthermore, water effectively suppresses appetites, aids in proper digestion, and acts as one of the vehicles for circulating nutrients and oxygen through the body, as well as assisting the body in eliminating waste. Water lubricates joints, protects organs, helps maintain a normal body temperature, and is absolutely necessary for exercise, and even day-to-day performance. With this in mind, it's easy to understand why drinking enough water - a minimum of TEN 8-oz. glasses a day, ever day - is perhaps the single most important step in determining diet and fitness success. If the liver does not get enough good food and water, it becomes sick. PLEASE, FOR YOUR OWN HEALTH, KEEP DRINKING WATER FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

Don't do this for more than a couple of weeks. It's tough, but it will work.

Breakfast: 1 small bowl of cereal with low fat milk, no sugar

Lunch: 1 entire bag of frozen vegetables (boiled & drained) with a little parmesan cheese sprinkled on. One piece of fruit.

Dinner: same as lunch.

No sweets or snacks of any kind. Take vitamins while you do this.

Maintenance: Continue eating breakfast & lunch as above, never snack and eat a sensible small dinner every night with no second helpings. As much as you can, avoid red meat, cheese and sweets.

Good luck!
