Health Tip of the Day

6 Tips for Healthy Dieting

  • Don't eat too few calories. If you want to lose weight, start exercising.

  • Don't skip or skimp on meals. Your body won't burn the calories as efficiently. You'll also end up hungry before your next meal -- and end up overeating.

  • Don't focus only on what you've cut out of your diet. Add vegetables, grains and fruit to your meals, and you'll feel well fed.

  • Don't adopt an all or nothing mentality. Don't give up all your favorite foods; that virtually dooms your diet to failure.

  • Select a reasonable weight goal.

  • Be sure to drink enough water. Sometimes when you feel hungry, you are only thirsty.
