Men on Diets

Move over, ladies -- the men are dieting too.

Tips for men on diets -- How to avoid diet pitfalls continued...

Back at home, men are also world-class breakfast-skippers -- terrible habit, Klein says. "We go into a kind of starvation mode when we sleep, so if you wait until lunch to eat again, the body thinks, 'Hey, I'd better save this as reserves. Who knows when this guy's going to eat next?' So it gets stored as fat. Take five minutes to have a high-fiber cereal or even peanut butter on whole wheat toast. Small changes make big differences."

One last directive from Klein, who says Americans eat way more than we need: Cut those portions in half. It's the quickest change a man can make in his eating habits -- even if it is hard to swallow.
