Question: I'm trying to not only lose a couple of pounds, but also be more healthy. I know that I need to incorporate more fruits and veggies, but what specific foods should I eat? FYI, I don't like eggs. Recipes are welcome.

Here's my tip. When you're grocery shopping, look at the ingredient label. If it says "Partially Hydrogenated" anything, "High-Fructose Corn Syrup", or any type of artificial sugar, then put it back. Those are all really unnatural chemicals that add trans fats (the really bad ones) and are just plain gross. What's worse, your body doesn't recognize them the same way as sugar, and so your body still thinks it's hungry. No one could drink a 2 liter of coke if it was made with real sugar, but with High Fructose Corn Syrup people can chug them. So you'll end up staying hungrier and be a lot less healthy. That's why you want to avoid those ingredients. If you don't buy those 3 things, then you can pretty much get whatever else you want. You'll be eating a much, much healthier diet. Try it, you'll be surprised

Along with fruits and veggies, you should try to eat more whole grain foods. Whole Wheat bread (Roman Meal is a good brand) and cereals (like Cheerios) are some good examples. You should drink a lot of water. You should also eat something when you first wake up in the morning, for it starts your metabolism. Good luck!

I am 47. I was an OVER two pack a day smoking, couch potato for many years. On January 2nd I quit smoking for good. I used the patch. To keep myself from smoking and keep myself busy I cleaned my entire apartment spotless. Essentially, I "de-smoked" it, washing down every piece of furniture, washing everything made of fabric, the works. The change in smell made me less want to smoke. I then did that with my car. (You have no idea how awful you smell until you quit). From then on, if someone who smoked walked past me I could smell the awful stink on them. It made me more determined. I also wrote a note of how much I spent on cigarettes a year taped it to the fridge. It was enough to go on a couple great vacations. After that, I joined the gym. At first, I seldom went. Then I made a deal with myself that I would go and just walk on the treadmill for a half hour. It turned into an hour. Then it turned into that and weights and the elliptical machine. I started to see some changes so I kept going. I notice an ENORMOUS difference just walking up stairs (my breathing and muscles and energy). I am presently trying to drop 20 pounds. I was never really fat and people would not even call me overweight. I just want to achieve lean muscle and am doing it slowly. I would suggest you start by quitting smoking and joining a gym and forget trying to change your diet yet. That is too much at once. Eat all you want. Best thing to do is to have a buddy system though. See if someone will do it with you or get a trainer at the gym. If you start now you could be WAY healthier by summer. I would be glad to encourage you if you want to email me. If I can do it ANYONE can.
