Here are Bob Harper's (former coach on the Biggest Loser) 20 Skinny Rules sans elaboration. They're pretty self-explanatory...maybe by posting it, I'll follow it!
1. Drink a large glass of water before every meal--no excuses!
2. Don't drink your calories
3. Eat protein at every meal (not necessarily meat)--or stay hungry and grouchy
4. Slash your intake of refined flours and grains
5. Eat 30-50 grams of fiber a day
6. Eat apples and berries every single day. Every. Single. Day!
7. No carbs after lunch (think paleo-style dinners)
8. Learn to read food labels so you know what you are eating
9. Stop guessing about portion size and get it right--for good
10. No more added sweeteners, including and especially artificial ones
11. Get rid of those white potatoes
12. Make one day a week meatless
13. Get rid of fast foods and fried foods
14. Eat a real breakfast
15. Make your won food and eat at least ten meals a week at home
16. Banish high-salt foods
17. Eat your vegetables--just do it!!
18. Go to bed hungry
19. Sleep right
20. Plan one splurge meal a week
*my emphasis added.
If anyone is interested, I do have some paleo menu/shopping e-planners that I can email to you to help with dinner plans.
