Hi Jane. Good question! The thing with any and every packaged foods is that they will never be as good for your body as natural real food is. In many cases, there are additional ingredients in Greek yogurt that make it so creamy – these ingredients are not all natural and all that good for you to begin with. If you love yogurt, I would suggest going for an organic natural kind (low-fat isn’t necessary – fat will not make YOU fat and usually when packaged foods contain less fat they contain more of other ingredients that aren’t healthy, ex. sweeteners). I would use fruit and nuts for the extra sweetness and crunch. In my opinion, Greek yogurt should not be eaten multiple times a day if your goal is to be healthy and loose weight, it’s just not a superfood like it claims to be! In my experience, the best way to lose fat and feel energized is to stick to REAL food and stay active (and have fun along the way)! Hope this helps a bit 😉

Putting aside all the complicated, scientific reasons to exercise, exercise offers benefits that dieting just can’t. Exercise allows you to boost your metabolism and turn your body into a fat blasting furnace. Exercise builds muscle in the places you want, improves body shape and gives you a firm, toned body. Dieting, on the other hand, doesn’t promise a firm body – you can lose weight dieting and still be jiggly! And of course, in conjunction with diet, exercise speeds up the whole weight loss process, and who doesn’t want that?
Provida Life Sciences is a weight loss company that was founded in 2000. The company offers a wide range of weight loss and nutrition products, as well as educational information and online support for clients.
There is a plan for beginners and for more advanced exercisers. If you haven’t exercised for a long time start with the beginner weight loss workout plan. If you have been exercising regularly for the last few months several times a week and been increasing your fitness levels, try the more advanced weight loss program.
However, keep an eye on things to determine if you need adjustments. If you’re losing weight too quickly, simply eat a bit more by increasing your calories/portion sizes. And if you’re gaining weight (or not losing at all), simply eat a bit less by decreasing your calories/portion sizes.

Thanks for replying so quick what I meant was I used to eat small meals but just 3 sometimes not too healthy but I didn’t eat as much as now and really didn’t feel hungry before but I’m just starting to eat really healthy to loose like 10 lbs. I can loose weight quick but gain it back because I indulge myself in sweets. My family is big and I’m always making cakes and all kinds of desserts for them and for myself that’s where I can control my self but I just started this diet and hopefully I can change my eating habits and later my family’s as well

Not for the 7-day shredding meal plan but I’ve recently shared a good one in this post: http://www.myfitstation.com/2013/03/29/21-ways-to-get-ready-for-the-april-mfs-battle-beast-mode-for-spring-30-day-challenge/
Get very good at calorie counting and serving sizes. It’ll be tough to calculate everything in the beginning, but after a while it’ll seem like second-nature. Be religious about estimating how many calories are in a certain food or meal. Be accurate! Lying to yourself isn’t worth it if the only one you’re hurting is you.
