In Fact #3, I told you to eat more to lose weight.  I also told you that what you eat is as important as how much you eat.  So, start with the basics:

  1. Eat 3 meals everyday.  You may not feel hungry at first.  That’s because your body is confused and doesn’t know what the heck is happening.  Do this for 2 weeks and normal hunger will return.
  2. Eat 1-2 snacks every day.  Each snack should have a small amount of carbohydrates + protein + fat. This will keep your tummy very happy and smiling until your next real meal.
  3. Reduce the size of your dinner plate and divide it into fourths.  On 1/4 put your protein.  On 1/4 put your starches/carbs/starchy veggies.  On the remaining 1/2 put your vegetables/salad (chock full of veggies).
