Our brain literally does not distinguish between the sensations of thirst and hunger. Both are derived from the same place - low energy levels . When we experience these low energy levels the sensations of thirst and hunger are generated at the same time, and we instinctively assume that regardless of the driver, both of these sensations are ‘the need to eat’. In other words we eat food even when the body needs water. By staying hydrated we separate these two messages and often eat a lot less - the right amount.
Eliminate Processed Foods
Sugar is your biggest enemy, high intake signals the body to produce insulin which lowers blood sugar so the body then stores fat.
Wheat has a higher glycemic level than sugar!!
Processed foods contain tons of chemicals, artificial sweetners, high fructose corn syrup, hydronated oils & processed soy products making it almost impossible for your body to burn off fat.
NO SUGAR FOR ALEC

Be more active... get outside into the fresh air as much as possible, practice gentle exercise and stretches daily. You don't have to hammer it out in the gym. Yoga, Tai Chi or Qigong are effective and detoxing.

Sit down when eating, and learn to really appreciate your food. Take your time to chew your food properly...it's not a race, enjoy and savour your food. Set the table, make a ritual of it. Eat like the Italalians....with appreciation and leisure. Think of how long it took to grow and make and prepare this food. Remeber those who have no food, be grateful for every mouthful you have. Eating like this will ensure you really taste, enjoy and appreciate everything you have on your plate.

Dr Weil - the worst diet
Nutrition and cleansing: The two functions of nutrition and cleansing work together. Each of them has two polarities. You can have food that is nutritious or not nutritious, and you can have food that easily digests and facilitates cleansing and detoxifying, or you can have food that is hard to digest and blocks cleansing and detoxifying. It is very useful to keep in mind these two simple questions when making food choices:
1) Does it provide good nutrition?
2) Does it facilitate cleansing?
Eat the good food first: It's easy to start the day with a rushed breakfast, have a midmorning junk snack, and a fast food lunch, thinking that we might have the better food later in the day, when there's more time. Sometimes later never comes. One way to counterbalance this tendency is to first have the better food, delaying the lesser food for later. Possibly later will never come, and you will find you never get around to eating the lesser food.
Imagine that you arose in the morning and had some sugary, salty breakfast cereal. Then, mid-morning, you had some tasty bread roll that is made with white flour and sugar. Then, you had a junk food lunch at one of those restaurants that doesn't have fresh vegetables, beans, or whole grain meals. Then, mid-afternoon, you had another one of those questionable snacks. It's very easy to think we will have our good food in the evening, for dinner, when there is more time to cook in the leisure of our own home. We may never get around to eating the good food, thinking if that we now eat this, after the other food during the day, we will be overeating. One solution is to train your mind to eat the good food first. Start the day with healthy food, and have healthy snacks early. You may then discover that there is not as much room for the lesser food.
