What are ways to make a diet successful?

To ensure success when you're on a diet:

1. Eat about every 3 hours, so you don't get hungry.

2. Eat till you're full—if this isn't enough, have more; just stop when you're satisfied, not stuffed.

3. Don't skip breakfast. Morning fiber (protein too) helps control afternoon cravings.

4. Don't think of your diet program as a "diet." It's more like training wheels that help you rediscover your appetite's natural balance. In just 2 weeks, you'll feel healthier and more energetic, and your waist will be 2 inches smaller.

5. For drinks, have coffee, tea, lots of water, skim milk, juice in the morning, maybe 1 or 2 diet sodas, and a glass of wine with dinner if you like.
