Sometimes its hard for people to just "eat healthy" because they might think they are eating healthy, but there are better choices that can be made

Ive heard weight watchers does wonders, but being on the south beach diet, and seeing numerous, amazing success stories from it as well.. I would recommend it to anyone.. because it puts guidelines on eating healthy with out counting anything

I've only known a couple of people to use that one. One person had success and the other got really painful gas to the point of having to get off the diet. That being said, different foods react differently with different people. For some people, guidelines are necessary as it gives them less control over what they can eat (you have to stick to the plan). Bottom line comes down to the amount of calories you are taking in, and the source of those calories.

On the drinking water, drink when you are thirsty. Drink when you think you might be thirsty, but don't set a limit. Drinking too much for you is bad.

The old ten (or 8 or whatever) glasses a day is a misquote. The study they took that from found the body needs to consume that amount of water per day, but a significant part of your body's water actually comes from food. A later study has found that by the time the body has any real noticeable lack of water the person is already thirsty.

So setting a limit of so many ounces of water a day can be bad. But make sure you drink when you are thirsty. (does that make sense?)

My advice? Hit the gym. Do rowing sprints. Row 200 metres in less than 45 seconds (the time per 500m should not go above 1:50). Then rest for 45 seconds. Then row again. Aim to do 10 of these. You'll soon see a difference (and it is a fantastic low-impact cardio workout). you can program this into rowing machines real easy.

If you can't get to the gym then do some sit-ups, crunches, press-ups and try to walk faster than you do normally. And watch the food. Skinless chicken breast is good as it has next to no fat and a good amount of protein (turkey breast is better). Substitute snack food (chocolate and crisps) for fruit.
