Regular quaker oatmeal( usually comes in a large tube or bag). Not the pre-packaged pre-flavoured sugary stuff.

Besides, you can always add fruit or a little maple syrup ect to add to the taste.

It makes a massive difference.

Start off slow and work your way up, its much easier on your body that way.

You prepare it by adding boiling water to a bowl of dry oatmeal, thats it. Its really really easy. And if you take a microwavable container you can just boil some water at work, and add it to the dry oatmeal.

Its really good for you, and with so many different fruit/topping choices, the taste always changes.

Eat less fatty, high sodium, high carb, foods at night especially after you have been awake for 14-16 hours. Your body starts to wind down at night unless you have some type of abnormally high metabolism, you should not eat after a certain time at night. If you do feel hungry at night, eating a salad or small portion of fruit will help you. Simply not eating late at night will take you a while to lose considerable and noticeable weight IMO. As it is always said, any diet should be coupled with appropriate amounts of exercise.

the best way to lose weight is to eat 5-6 small meals a day.Each meal should incude protein,vegetables and low GI carbs.Three of the meals could be protein shakes or low carb meal replacement shakes.Your body burns more calories digesting 6 meals than it does 3.Always eat just before you are really hungry,that way you dont make bad decisions.
You should also eat healthy fats eg oil,nuts,flaxeed oil.Not to be mistaken with saturated fats eg red meats,butter

Just as an update, I stopped eating about 3-4 hours before bedtime, cut out soda (unless it was diet) and I lost about 4 pounds in about 2 weeks. This is so interesting! I haven't really changed the type of food I've been eating either. Of course, I now live in the city and have to walk everywhere whereas before I HAD to drive.

Oh, yeah, and I try eating oatmeal for snacks instead of some other fatty chocolate bars.

Great to hear, that is a very substantial amount of weight lost

You should pat yourself on the back

And keep in mind diet soda is high in sodium, which will also add to water retention due to an increase in salt.

But if your only drinking like a can a day( and not eating really salty foods), you will be fine

I guess losing weight will be my reason/excuse to wake up earlier and eat something before school/work. This better work!

Thanks - it's been hard not eating up until I go to bed, but I'm getting used to it. I was thinking 4 pounds was quite a bit, but then again I know my weight fluctuates so easily with water retention, that time of month, etc etc.

As for soda, I probably only drink 1 can a day. I find that I miss the sugary taste that water can't replace which is the only reason I drink soda at all.

The oatmeal idea that was suggested really is filling. It's actually not as bad as I initially thought it would be.

Many many people think the same way

Its very versatile, just add berries or change up the type of syrup and you have a whole new taste

I lost about 40 pounds within 3-4 months after having my son. The rest of the 20lbs I lost I attribute to not eating late at nigh and cutting out junk. I've been sitting at around 115-120 for the past year, and I notice that my jeans are getting loser still.

Before him, I used to eat around 10-midnight and then would go to sleep 2 hours later. Now I usually eat dinner when he does b/w 6-7 and I'm in bed by midnight. I won't have anything else until the next morning when I have coffee...I usually wait until lunch though to eat any food. I also stopped drinking sodas, I rarely eat junk food like chips, candy, etc. and I don't work out at all unless you count caring for a 17 month old.
