Looking for dieting tips on the internet, you’ll find that there’s no shortage of advice on how to shed the pounds. But you probably will have heard most of it before, and how much of it can be trusted anyway?
If there’s one source you can trust for health advice, it’s a medical doctor. So, here’s a look at what a few of our favorite doctors (and yours!) had to say about dieting:
TV’s “The Doctors”
For a mid-afternoon snack, have a cup of cherry or baby heirloom tomatoes, drizzled with olive oil and a pinch of salt. It’s a low-calorie option that will keep you satisfied because of the water content of the tomatoes and the bit of fat from the olive oil.
Don’t shock your body by cutting a large number of calories from your diet all at once. Instead, train your body overtime to want less. Shave off 100 calories, and then take time to adjust and get over the initial feeling of hunger that will come with this change. Then, shave off another 100 calories.
Dr. Andrew Weil
Avoid late-night snacking by planning your dinner so that it’s eaten at a time that won’t leave you hungry before bed. But if you must snack at night, go for a piece of fruit or a handful of almonds.
