2 . Avoid plans that suggest irregular or complicated eating schedules. You should eat about 5-6 small meals/snacks per day to keep your metabolism steady and reduce hunger. Depending on your needs they can be as simple as a piece of fruit with a handful of nuts.
3 . Be suspicious of any plan promoting drastic or immediate results. You didn't put the extra weight on in a few weeks, don't expect to lose it that quickly. Do not just use the scale for measurement. Keep track of inches, especially the waist, hips, thighs and arms, your energy levels, how you feel overall and changes in your blood lab work, such as glucose, cholesterol and triglycerides.
4 . Steer clear from programs that are selling vitamins, supplements or specialty products. Avoid taking any tablets, pills, capsules, shakes, etc. without first contacting your pharmacist or physician.
