Suggestions for losing weight?
Answer: There are two measurements you need to consider when going on a diet, your actual weight and your Body Mass Index [BMI]. Your weight should lie somewhere within the ranges, but that is not definitive of ideal health. Some factors such as body building, pregnancy, and lingering illness could put your weight out of that range. Your BMI is determined from your weight and height and gives you a better idea since this tells you the approximate amount of lean tissue versus fat tissue.
Your BMI is your weight divided by the square of your height. A healthy BMI range is between 19 and 22. People within this range live the longest. Death rates are higher for people with an index over 25.

Now you know how much you should weigh. Are you in that range? If so then there is no need for you to be on a diet. You should focus on proper nutrition now. Many who are within their weight range have habits that will eventually come to haunt them, especially when they are teens and young adults. If your eating habits consist of high carbohydrates (potato chips, snack foods, heavy breads, pancakes...), or high fats (deep fried french fries, fast food meals, ice cream) or lacking or fiber, vitamins and protiens, then it may not seem like a problem now, but give it a few years.
* Watch your fat intake.
* Go easy on salt.
* Change from table butter to cholesterol free butter.
* Baking, not frying.
* Use a non stick frying pan.
* Boil your vegetables instead of cooking them.
5 Tips for losing weight naturally
Leave Food On Your Plate
It sounds simple - because it is. Problem is, we’ve been taught since an early age that we have to finish everything on our plate “because people are starving in this world”. That’s true. But getting fatter as a result of finishing your plate won’t help them. Far better to donate to a foreign aid charity instead.
Get More Exercise
I know everyone labors this point. If you need more convincing, buy a pedometer or keep a journal of the exercise you do for a week. You’ll probably be stunned at how little exercise you do. You can change this by walking more, taking the stairs or maybe even making a brisk 10 minute daily walk part of your regular routine.
Don’t Buy Diet Foods
At least not unless you’ve read the label and checked that the fat hasn’t been swapped for sugar. Read up on all the different names that sugar can be called - fructose, glucose, sucrose, corn syrup, etc. Just because a product says it’s low fat doesn’t mean that it’s OK to eat it!
Cut Out Soda Drinks
If you regularly drink soda, cut down on it. Again, don’t make the mistake of swapping regular, sugar laden, soda for diet versions. The artificial sweeteners aren’t good for you either. Swap soda for water or green tea or a fruit tea if you still crave the sweetness.
Cut Down On Sugar
If you regularly heap sugar into your tea or coffee, gradually cut down. But don’t use an artificial sweetener instead. Just cut down gradually over a few weeks. You won’t notice the slow change but you won’t be consuming extra empty calories from the sugar.

Answer: What is the Alkaline Diet?
Other names: alkaline acid diet, acid alkaline diet
An alkaline diet is a diet that emphasizes, to a varying degree, fresh fruit, vegetables, roots and tubers, nuts, and legumes.
Our blood is slightly alkaline, with a normal pH level of between 7.35 and 7.45. The theory behind the alkaline diet is that our diet should reflect this pH level (as it did in the past) and be slightly alkaline. Proponents of alkaline diets believe that a diet high in acid-producing foods is disrupts this balance and promotes the loss of essential minerals such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, and sodium, as the body tries to restore equilibrium. This imbalance is thought to make people prone to illness.

Lack of Vitamin B2 foods( Riboflavin) ; B6 (Pyridoxine and Pyridoxamine);B9 ( Folic acid ) and B-12 or Cyanocobalamin) . can cause anemia.
Vitamin B is water-soluble, so it must be replenished every day through the diet or supplements. There are many foods rich in vitamin B. Some natural sources include bananas, potatoes, tempeh, lentils, other whole grains, chili peppers, green vegetables, eggs, dairy products, and meats including turkey, tuna, and liver
Wild salmon, avocado or maybe beans or sweet potatoes, all have B vitamins.
Brewer's yeast, used to make bread and beer, is an excellent source of Vitamin B. Any food or beverage made with brewer's yeast is rich in vitamin B. However, consuming beer in excess will have adverse health results, and alcohol interferes with the body's absorption of vitamin B-1, so be careful not to defeat your own purpose.
Which foods are rich in vitamin B?
whole grains, such as wheat and oats
fish and seafood
poultry and meats
dairy products, like milk and yogurt
leafy green vegetables
beans and peas
Blackstrap molasses is a very good source of iron.
