Hi Springfling! I can relate with weight gain, I'm trying to lose too. Years ago I was a
weight loss consultant, so I am trying to practice what I used to teach.
You have recieved some great advice. The only advice I can add is never skip breakfast.
Eating breakfast jumpstarts your body in the morning, it is the fuel you need for your morning
activies. Skipping breakfast can actually slow down your metabolism.
Make sure you eat enough protein, if you do not get enough, the body will start breaking down muscle and muscle burns fat. Excercise builds muscle and relieves stress. Find something
you really love doing. Some days I turn up the music and just dance!
Eating Carbohydrates are important too, try to eat the whole grain products and fruit.
Watch the fat, eating too much is hard to metabolize and hard on liver and kidneys.
Don't forget to drink lots of water
Good Luck To You!
