I started this diet Monday and have been getting bad head aches and feel sluggish. I’m not sure if it’s the diet or if I’m getting sick. I’ve done a high protein diet in the past and felt great. Is it common to get headaches on this diet? If so I will have to give it up
Remember that you’ll be burning calories while doing daily activities such as walking around, walking up stairs, and even breathing. It won’t be many calories, but you don’t have to expect to burn all your calories doing hard exercise.
“Nuts are a superior weight loss food in my book. They offer plenty of protein, healthy fat, and fiber that can really take the edge off hunger at any meal or snack. Nuts are also so versatile and convenient. They can be mixed into oatmeal or yogurt at breakfast, paired with fruit as a snack, or tossed into a hearty salad for a little satisfying crunch at lunch. — Michelle Loy, MPH, MS, CSSD, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and owner of Go Wellness in Orange County, California

Studies have shown that increasing your protein intake to 25-30% of calories can cut cravings by 60%, reduce desire for late-night by half, and cause weight loss of almost a pound per week… just by adding protein to the diet (19, 20).
Plus, whenever I need a snack, they’re already prepped. To make it a little easier to start, here are some tips for healthy eating on a budget. You can also take along my healing diet shopping list the next time you hit the supermarket.

In Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, the surgeon creates a small pouch at the top of the stomach. The pouch is the only part of the stomach that receives food. This greatly limits the amount that you can comfortably eat and drink at one time.
High intensity interval training, HIIT, is a type of interval training. It’s also called “sprint” training. On the treadmill, begin walking up an incline of 8 to 10 percent for one minute. Then, immediately after that first minute, begin to run up the incline for an interval of 20 to 30 seconds. This “work” interval should be so hard that you don’t want to do another second. Immediately after the 20 seconds, return to walking until your heart rate lowers to 135 to 145 bpm, then go back to “work.” Do this for 20 minutes three times per week with one or two days of regular steady cardio in between for best results. HIIT training is excellent for weight and fat loss.
“It’s far more difficult to eat a healthier diet and fit in exercise if you don’t plan ahead. Plan out your meals for the week ahead and go grocery shopping over the weekend to ensure you have the ingredients you need on hand. If you can, do some meal prep in your down time—cut fresh veggies, marinate your protein, cook up a batch of whole grains in advance. When you’re prepared you’re far less likely to order takeout. — Jessica Fishman Levinson, MS, RDN, CDN, culinary-nutrition consultant and founder of Nutritioulicious

I just have a quick question. It might seem silly. When you say 1/2 a yam, what’s the proper way to measure that out? Should I just eye ball that or is there a certain amount of ounzes or cups I can use to get the right portions? I really just want to have all my meals on point! Thanks!
Wrap up your morning meal with dessert—yes, really. In a Tel Aviv University Medical Center study, one group had a 304-calorie breakfast with 10 grams of carbs, while the other group ate a 600-calorie breakfast with 60 grams of carbs, which included a small sweet, such as chocolate, a doughnut, a cookie, or cake. Halfway through the 8-month study, both groups had lost an average of 33 pounds per person. At the end, however, the low-carb group regained 22 pounds, while the dessert group dropped an additional 15. Researchers say the dessert-eaters reported dealing with fewer cravings, and had a better chance of sticking to their calorie requirements for the rest of the day.
Hi I am Vijaya and I am a student. I need to cut down atleast 5-6 kgs of weight (which I gained suddenly 6 months ago). Obviously my diet plan was not appropriate till date. Is it possible to loose 6 kgs with this plan? Should I join a gym to speed up weight loss?
If knowing that your body is thanking you for making healthier choices isn’t enough (and that’s ok!), treat yourself — but don’t tie these “rewards” to food. For instance, if you worked out five days each week for the entire month, splurge on that new tennis racquet you’ve been wanting or indulge in a manicure or pedicure. You’ve earned it!
DINNER: Creamy chicken pasta (200g skinless chicken breast, 1/4 cup light evaporated milk, 50ml reduced-salt chicken stock, 4 asparagus spears 1/4 cup each of frozen peas and corn, and 1 cup cooked wholemeal pasta.
Forget about appetite suppressants and popping pills. Don’t even get us started about the cabbage soup diet. While these quick-fix solutions may cause quick weight loss at first, they are doomed to leave you feeling unhappy, unfulfilled and primed for the inevitable rebound. Far from providing a safe and sustainable solution to your weight loss dieting dilemmas, these bogus quick-fixes aggravate it with a vengeance.
Eat quality protein, like salmon, tuna, turkey, chicken and legumes every day (women who are pregnant, nursing, or considering getting pregnant should be careful about the amount of mercury in their diet and avoid eating excessive quantities of some fish).
It’s your Aunt Mildred’s birthday and, while you’re committed to healthy eating, the rest of your family hasn’t gotten there yet. Instead of chowing down on fried, unhealthy foods or being rude and turning down everything that’s offered, a great compromise is to bring a dish along to share (after clearing it with the host, of course).
