Lots of good advice in this thread.
This is mostly common knowledge sort of stuff but it's key to keeping the weight off and feeling better:
- Keep a regular exercise routine going, even just walking. You don't have to run miles and miles every day. Just keep an active lifestyle going.
- Cut the sugar and foods high in fat (fast food) out of your meals.
- Don't overeat. Eat until you're satisfied, not until you feel full. If you keep stuffing yourself, your body will get used to that feeling and want more food.
- But have some healthy snacks in between meals.
- Don't eat near bedtime.
The one thing I'm guilty of is drinking diet soda. I'm working on cutting back on that.
