Cut back gradually. Start with one thing in your diet you can replace or get rid of. Then move on to something else. Don't drink except occasionally when you go out. Bring your lunch to work. Try not to snack, but if you do, limit the portion and times per day. If you have 30 mins a day you can work out at home. [ Reply | More ]

And lots more fiber and useful minerals. But even then you can lose weight eating only candy bars, as long as it's 3 candy bars a day. Try it, major reduction of calories. There are actually diets using shakes and nutrition bars, which are essentially like candy bars. It's not healthy, so I don't recommend it, but banana is most definitely not an unhealthy food.

the only time i lost weight effortlessly was by following the food addicts eating plan. you cut out all sugars, gluten and flour. each day you eat: four cups veggies, 2 cups each fruit, dairy and grains, 1 lb protein and 1 tablespoon oil. so breakfast might be two eggs, a cup of yogurt with a cup of fruit, and a bowl of oatmeal. lunch would be meat or beans, a cooked veggie and a bit of salad. you might have yogurt with a sliced banana for a snack, and then dinner would be meat, rice and veggies. I know a few people who have followed this eating plan and all have lost huge weight. Cravings go away too. [ Reply | More ]

Yes mostly hunger, and I also don't feel satisfied with say a big salad. I crave more satiating foods.

It feels very restrictive and unenjoyable to do it for months and months. [ Reply | More ]

I hear you and I couldn't do this either. I eat all of it, just less. It can take time to get there, you need to figure out what time of the day is especially hard for you to not feel satiated a certain way and when it's easier for your lifestyle to have healthy greens you need or junkier food that's available. Also gradually change way you cook or how much you eat if your cooking is high in calories, some foods can pack quite a bit, especially fatty foods. People here say that carbs and sugar is the enemy, but fats pack lots more calories and if you like to fill your stomach up with dense food you are overeating. Better to maybe have 1/3 of high calorie food and a serving of salad and veggie, you may not be able to do this right away, but gradually you can. You do need to train yourself to have less quantity of fattening foods eventually, no need to cut them out, just moderation and portion control. If you hate salads, how about smoothies sweetened with real fruit instead of sugar, what about grilled veggies or baked veggies or even stir fry? If you primarily eat what is considered unhealthy foods, it's just better for your health to start introducing something healthy. But in all truth you could lose weight even eating bad foods as long as you eat very little, it's an ugly truth, as it's not often the best for your health, so think about this as well.

I think the reason these people lost huge weight is that they found it hard to enjoy these foods and were not very enthusiastic about eating, so they ate less. That is a true secret of restriction diets. I've been on one due to health reasons, had to cut out all the foods I loved. I ended up not caring to eat at all, I basically just fed myself to function and it was not a pleasant thing. I was forced to do it, it's very hard to do this for non medical reasons, that's why so many people fail on restrictive diets. I later was allowed to introduce most foods back, but I got used to eating less overall, developed better portion control, so I managed to keep the weight off. Some also accomplish this inadvertently via medications that make you ill and affect your appetite. [ Reply | More ]

What time of the day is easier for you to tolerate hunger if you were to reduce calories or skip a meal? Obviously not night time from what I am reading, but what about breakfast? What I will do in your situation is eat what you cooked for dinner, just eat less of it, not 3 or 2 slices but just one, or eat kid's leftovers. Then if you have a time of the day to get a salad during lunch time, that's when you do it, plenty of salad bars around if you WOH. It's all about net cumulative effect, it's not about every single meal. If you need to reduce gradually, do that. If you eat a heavy dinner and a snack, skip breakfast maybe. Or vice versa if you eat lots for breakfast and lunch and then have a snack, skip dinner. Whatever is easier. Or replace meal with a snack. Flexibility works for diets. [ Reply | More ]

I totally get what you are saying, I think it's hard for me to create the headspace for this and be consistent for months and months. The kids' meals are too bland for me, and if I'm hungry, I'm going to eat 2 slices not 1, because I'm not full with 1. I don't eat much in the morning and lunch is usually a salad. I end up eating more at night and it equals around 1800 calories a day, which is hard to lose any weight on. I've tried frontloading the calories, but I end up still eating around the same to feel satiated. I think I just have a bigger appetite than most of you skinny moms :). [ Reply | More ]

Appetite can be changed. Most skinny moms who lost weight also had huge appetites. It sounds to me that it's psychological from what I read and has to do with night time. YOu said you frontloaded the calories with heavier breakfast and lunch but ended up still craving the same amount of food at night. This is not physical craving but psychological, you don't need this much food to feel satiated, you really should not be as hungry if you ate a heavy lunch especially later in the day, a lighter dinner or a snack should do. Are you sure it's because of feeling real hunger or because you are just stressed and running around with bedtime routine thinking you will lose it if you don't feel full? Because you really are just fine not eating, it's just panic response, it's your mind not your body. There will be no damage if you feel a little hunger and it might actually just go away 15 min later after that 1st slice of pizza if you take a break. [ Reply | More ]

I read this and I think maybe you can try intermittent fasting, but not an extreme version of it, milder version that would lead to reduction of calories during your chosen time of the day where it matters the least and you find it easiest to tolerate hunger. For some it's morning time, for others it's around bedtime. Middle of the day is when you are eating. I.F. is about cutting down on some snacks you otherwise would be having in your fasting window or eliminating one meal, but still functioning because you are eating during the time you need energy and you are also not eliminating foods you love. They key is that you simply cannot eat as much during your window as during entire day if you are a snacker who also eats meals. [ Reply | More ]

I’m you and my only advice is you have to just do it. I woh with dc too. Most important is diet. You have to have willpower and just do that. Working out helps a lot. After a work out, you won’t want to eat anything unhealthy. You have to trick your mind into believing that you love working out. I used to go 5 days a week during my lunch break. When I changed jobs, I had to reduce it to 3 days a week. BUT I never miss it. It’s my me alone time and I schedule it into my day. [ Reply | More ]

NP: How is that a troll post? Look at the photos for yourself. Does the truth hurt? [ Reply | More ]

NNP: I looked at the only photo of it I saw there, with two men painted jet black, and gold paint poured on top. The guy on the left (face toward the camera) looks like a black man. The guy on the right (back of his head) you can't really tell, but maybe he's possibly white. The article does not say anything about the painting, or if they're supposed to be slaves or not. They don't look to me like they're supposted to be slaves. Sounds like OP is trolling, and that "NP" is probably OP claiming to be a new poster, but isn't. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My 8 year old son's feet stink extremely badly. By the end of each day they smell so bad I can smell them even before he takes off his shoes. He seems to have extremely sweaty palms and feet. He is an athlete and plays several competitive sports. But, his feet stink even after a day of school. I asked the doctor and they didn't have much to suggest. I bought a spray for his shoes and it doesn't work well. I was wondering if anyone has gone through this with a son or a husband. It seems to have been a change in the last year where his feet are just excessively sweating during the day. How on earth is this happening with an 8 year old and yes, he bathes daily and washes his feet. 37 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

a derm and maybe a psychologist -- why are his hands sweaty? could it be anxiety? like social anxiety? causing him to sweat profusely. I would look at if it happens when he doesn't have school or any events. [ Reply | More ]

Sweat stinks only after it’s metabolized bacteria. It’s bacterial flora that creates this smell. Apply some sanitizer to his feet once a day and you will see difference in smell. [ Reply | More ]

“ Sweat itself is virtually odorless to humans. It is the rapid multiplication of bacteria in the presence of sweat and their breaking down of sweat into acids that eventually causes the unpleasant smell“. Instead of working on smell or sweat, work on bacteria. Safest way to get rid of smell. [ Reply | More ]
