     DIET!  One of the most dreaded words in the English language...it means giving up all those delectable  desserts, it means working out, it means the end to happiness as we know it, well, maybe I over-exaggerate the traumatizing effects of dieting, but that's what it feels like when you're on a diet.  So, why is it that dieting is so hard?  Like any substance that enters the body your body becomes accustom to certain levels of sugars, proteins, calories, and so on...so when you go on the diet, your body isn't getting what its used to and it complains to you, by making you feel hungry, nauseous, sleepiness, and many other symptoms.  So in many ways food is an addiction, our body gets addicted to certain things, and when we take those certain things away our body sends you a messages.  That's usually why the first few days of a diet is always the most difficult, because that's when the cravings are the worst.

       How do we lose weight then?  After all, we still have to eat, its not like a smokers addiction to cigarettes or a alcoholics addiction to liquor.  We still have to eat, but we have to change what we eat, how our body works, and how we live our lives.  Long-term weight loss means a change in lifestyle, not a temporary fix.  This webpage is dedicated to getting you started on your road to a healthy lifestyle, not just a temporary fix, and it deals with getting over those first few painful days and weeks of a diet.

       Now, a little about me, I'm not a doctor, I'm not a nutritionist, I'm a person that has dealt with all the ins and outs of dieting.  These are tips, facts, and just general commentary on my own personal experience with dieting.  I would like to think that my own personal experiences with dieting will give you a better outlook on what works and what doesn't.  Each person is different and what works for some doesn't work for others, but these are scientific fact mixed with real world experience.  The exercise section will give tips on how to get started and the benefits of exercise, the diet tips section will be just that, some helpful tips to get you on the road to dieting.  The negative food section deals with foods that basically can be eaten in any quantity and the fat burning food section is a website I wrote about foods that speed up your metabolism.  I hope you find this website informative and helpful.  Please email me if you have questions or comments about the site...I try to answer all my email within a weeks time.

       One other thing, before starting any diet or exercise program you should check with your doctor first.
