How to Drop One Pound A Week

Health professionals advise obese and overweight individuals to get started on dieting to shed excess pounds and decrease their risks of developing chronic diseases like heart attack and diabetes.

But the big problem is finding the will to stay away from the foods that we're so used to eating. What if there's a way to shed pounds slow and steady without fighting the urge to eat your favorite foods.

If you're a big potato chip junkie, learn to control your consumption by not holding on to the big bag while you munch. Get a small bowl and fill it with enough chips. The reason behind this is that as long as your hand can feel that there's something to grab and stuff to your mouth, it'll keep feeding your mouth with chips.

If you have a sweet tooth, why not choose something natural. Dried fruits can make for a great alternative for the sweet stuff. You can replace your sugary drinks with home-made fruit juices to keep things natural and chemical-free.

Keep in mind that you want to be able to stick to your diet. Cutting your guilty pleasures out completely only increases your chances of failing.
