Who can help me with weight loss and dieting without fad diets?

ANSWER

If you need more information on weight loss and dieting, talk to your health care provider or a registered dietitian. Ask your doctor about your "ideal" weight and the number of calories you must eat to lose pounds and maintain an ideal weight.

Also, ask friends, family, or co-workers to join you as you work to change your eating habits and pare down your weight. Sticking to a weight loss plan is much easier when you have someone to support you.
