Lose weight FAST - Find the best diet for YOU

Week 2 diet menu

diet menuHere's a suggestion for another week's worth of dieting.

There is nothing revolutionary about this diet, it just relies on reasonable portion sizes and sensible use of low-calorie alternatives wherever possible. Replace milk, butter, drinks, mayonnaise, sugar and cereals with low fat, low salt, low sugar options and you'll lose weight and get healthier.

Breakfast is important. Don't overdo the cereal and stay clear of high sugar breakfast cereals. Choose satisfying wholegrains that keep you feeling full for longer.

Lunch is best made at home and taken with you to work - it's cheaper, healthier and you've got a far better chance of staying slim if you keep out of the canteen / deli / restaurant / pub at lunchtime. Try to incorporate a walk in the fresh air.

Our view is that the best diet is one which is sustainable - aim for a sensible balance rather than going too low on calories. Keep plenty of low calorie snacks to hand, like fruit, low-fat yoghurt, crispy vegetables to chew.

Keep away from ready meals and processed foods if you can, they are generally much higher calorifically than natural and home-made meals, and can contain a lot of sugar and salt that you'll be healthier without.

Use low-calorie spreads and dressings rather than butter and you'll be surprised how many calories you'll save.
