When you eat a simple, healthy diet you'll never again be tempted to try the latest fad diet to drop a few pounds. Choose to eat lean proteins, seasonal vegetables and whole grains most of the time. This means making this pattern of eating your "norm". Work on avoiding the sugar, fried food and processed carbohydrates each and every day, and just wait and see how your energy levels will soar! You'll have an improved quality of life and will enjoy being at your ideal weight.
