Why Aren't You Losing Weight?
A breakfast that's high in protein and fiber - even a simple bowl of cereal with milk - staves off hunger and keeps calorie counts at bay all day long. Smart snacking does the same thing. People who eat small, protein-packed snacks regularly tend to eat less at meals, plus snacking keeps your metabolism going all day long. Study what you sip - many people tend to overlook their drinks and neglect to count those liquid calories. Whether it's coffee with all the fixings or alcohol, beverages can pack a high-calorie punch. When in doubt, record every drop and morsel that goes into your mouth in a food diary. That way, you can examine where your diet might be going awry.
