    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Kiersten, it's gonna be tight, but it's do-able.
    First off, no soda at all, not even diet soda because it makes you crave sugars.
    Drink black coffee, unsweetened tea and water. Any of these can be sweetened with stevia, as it is natural, a very little honey or agave.
    Drink AT LEAST 64 oz of water a day. You can use slices of cucumber, lemon , lime or thin slices of oranges for "flavoring" if you set a pitcher of water in the fridge and let the fruits float in it.
    Choose lean fresh meats, like trimmed pork chops or very lean beef, and boneless skinless chicken breasts.
    Remember, a true serving of your meat is the size and weight of a deck of cards.
    Fill up on fresh veggies that have lots of fiber and nutrients. Lettuce is a true void when it comes to nutrition. Nothing there. Switch to baby spinach, kale, dandelion, mustard greens, etc for your "leafy greens".
    Have a small protein at breakfast like a whole egg with a whole grain piece of toast, or 1/2 c oatmeal.
    Protein fills you up longer and the carb will give you energy.
    Try a lowfat version of something like chunky chicken salad or egg salad either stuffed into 1/2 cantalope or with sliced tomato.
    Think nutrition for everything you put in your mouth. If it has empty calories that do absolutely nothing for you, don't eat it.
    Read labels. Watch for sodium, fats and sugar content along with calories.

    Eat FRESH , WHOLE FOODS whenever possible.

    you can do this
