Fads and Crash diets aren't healthy, as they are extreme in it's nutritional deprivations, also the pounds are not guaranteed to stay off.

If you start on one of these diets, you are setting yourself up for failure, you cannot eat that way for long. Soon enough you'll see yourself back to where you started, that's called the yo-yo effect.

You can lose 1-3 pounds weekly starting -- today.

Just by cutting out a lot of your empty calories such as, chips, french fries, and any other grease monster you can easily cut your caloric intake by 500 calories and lose 1-2 pounds a week.

Here are some tips to help you along your journey.

Drink a lot of water: water is great weight loss, it replaces high-calorie drinks such as soda, juice and alcohol. Also often we think we're hungry but in reality we're just thirsty. Water has no fat, no calories, no sugar and no carbs. Drink plenty to help with your weight loss regimen.

Walk for 45 minutes a day: the reason we're suggest walking 45 minutes is because the first 30 minutes prevents weight gain in most sedentary people, by extending an extra 15 minutes you can lose about 30 pounds yearly without changing the way you eat.

Bring the color blue into your life more often: the reason why there aren't many restaurants decorated in blue, is because the color blue functions as an appetite suppressant while red, yellow and orange encourage eating.

Eat cereal for breakfast five days a week: studies shows that people who eat cereal for breakfast every day are significantly less likely to gain weight and have diabetes.

Eat most of your meals at home: you're likely to eat more high-fat and high calorie foods when you eat out.

Take a walk before dinner: studies find that 20 minutes of walking reduces appetite and increases sensations of fullness.

Get most of your calories before noon: studies have proved that the more you eat in the morning, the less you eat in the evening. You'll have more opportunities to burn those early day calories than to burn off dinner calories.

Stock your refrigerator with low-fat yogurt: another study has shown that people who cut 500 calories daily and eat yogurt three times every day for 12 weeks has lost more weight and body fat than a group that had only cut the calories.

Lose weight and not your time: in a recent study, 46 percent of woman claimed to not have enough time as the main reason they're unable to eat better. Taking an hour or two on the weekend to plan your healthy weekly meals is a big start. A survey made by CDC has found that almost 45 percent of woman who lost a big amount of weight long term always planned their meals ahead.

Lose weight and not your muscle: since muscle takes much more calories to maintain and keeps the bodies metabolism at peak to burn those calories. A great option is to eat mostly proteins and strength train for 30-45 minutes three to four times a week. The protein will be fuel for those workouts and maintain lean muscle.
