Thanks for the info. I have a teenage daughter who has a weight problem (unfortunately it runs in the family). I'll have to try some of these.

Thanks for sharing...

Losing weight, yuk. Diets, Yuk. I think I have just thought of the whole solution to being overweight. Forget about dieting. Take the word diet out of our vocabulary. Forget about losing weight. Maybe we just need to change the entire concept, train of thought to Learn How To Eat Healthy. Until eating health occurs, nothing else is going to happen.

Good information on how to effectively manage your diet.

Weight gain and obesity among young generation is a matter of importance for us. We need to manage our food habits first to deal with future obesity related problems.
