      In the past I have managed to stick to diets where I have lost weight but I struggle to keep the weight off. Does anyone have any advice about keeping weight off? I dont have a problem losing it in the first place :)

      The trick is to lose your weight over a prolonged period of time that way your body will get "used" to it. If you go on a crash diet you are more likely to put the weight back on very quickly.

      Great advice! To be honest I tend to hit it fairly hard at the start and then lose interest, at which point the weight returns. Maybe steady weight loss is the answer.

      Hi there, to maintain your weight you need to, you need to set a diet and workout plan. I am also trying to lose my weight. Any suggestions?

      There are many diets and exercise routines out there - it may take time to find the ones which best suit you. In the meantime you cant go far wrong by eating in moderation - i.e. not over eating - and increasing your exercise. In simple terms, less calories going in and more being used on exercise = weight loss and hopefully muscle tone.

      It is all down to controlling your metabolism. If you lose weight to quickly by starving yourself then your body will simply go into survival mood and store more of you food as fat and convert that back to energy as and when required. One useful article I came across:-

      I suppose the main problem is trying to make yourself “full” after every meal so that you are not looking for more food. Does anybody have any tips on the types of food which would do this? I would presume the likes of pasta would be ok?

      I think a lot about dieting and healthy eating starts in the head - if you can get your head around the changes it makes it a whole lot simpler. Once you get in a routine it is much easier.

      One problem that many people seem to have is over ambitious targets for weight loss in the short to medium term. It will take some time for your body’s metabolism to change to your new diet and as such you may not see massive weight loss in the short term. Much of the initial weight loss you will experience is said to be fluid which has been retained within the body. There are many ways and means of increasing your metabolism which basically increases the rate at which you burn-off energy.

      One simple technique I learned was to ensure you drink plenty of water with your meals as this can act as a hunger suppressant.
