Top 5 Mistakes Dieters Make...

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Executives Nampa, ID

It seems dieting is one of the most frequently mentioned ‘new year resolutions.’ Most people have great intentions but are not always resolute when it comes to their eating habits.Light Soup


I hope you find these helpful…


As heard On-Air: Dr.Oz's Top 5 Mistakes Dieters Make -


#1 - They crash diet. (Should become more of a lifestyle)
#2 - They skip breakfast. (The most important meal of the day)
#3 - They drink extra calories. (sodas and juices are loaded with calories)

#4 – They don’t snack enough. (Grazing throughout the day is best)

#5 – They don’t drink enough water. (The best thing you can ingest)

Don, A number of years ago we totally changed the way we eat.  It has now become a way of life.

Don, you hit the nail on my, wait, that wasn't quite right.  I know that my habits are keeping the weight on though, and these reminders are great.  Thanks.

Marchel, that is awesome! If one can create the habits and not be detoured by "the bad stuff," a way of life eating is best!

Ron, you and me both, brother! Oh, I need to drink water...

Vickie, sorry, I hate to be "that guy"...

Great, now I'm hungry and have to go the fridge to get something to snake on. If I gain weight over this I will be coming back to your office in Idaho. (LOL)

Don, I laughed at Dennis Miller's New Year's Resolution: "This year I'm making resolutions that I can actually follow. I'm gonna start smoking and get fat!" :D

I got started with weight loss using Nutri-System. It gave me the structure and pattern to make life-long changes in how I eat.

There's another thing that might be considered for this list---I believe folks who are fixated on food tend to be overweight.  Get busy thinking about other things...and the pounds will melt away!

I guess I am in the New Year dieting crowd. For the most part I am doing pretty good with this list, but thanks for the confirmation.

Todd, don't you just love the power of suggestion...?  (Cookies, cookies, cookies!)  OK, that's just plain mean. Sorry dude!  I just want you to come back and visit.

Leilani, The path of least Resistance at it's finest... :)

Vickie, that's awesome! Do you ever see Marie Osmond?

Kirsten, I believe you are right on! When I'm at home, not working, I tend to eat more & snack more. Idol hands are the devil's workshop, even with eating...

Cara, that is a great idea !I meant to join earlier. I just switched it over to that group & joined! Thanks!

Ellie, good luck with the resolution! Be strong!

Great tips, Don.  When I first moved to the Arizona desert, I wasn't much of a water drinker.  Here, it's a necessity.  Then, when I quite smoking it was my life line.  Now, it's just a way of life.

Juli, we all should probably be drinking more water...

It is all about a healthy lifestyle. You can eat almost anything you want in small portions and a good exercise routine.
