If you aren't happy with what you see in the mirror but don't want to harm your health with some crazy fad diet, try these tips that might help you take off a few pounds in a healthy way:

- Why not consult a physician? A dietician can have a good background of your health and thus advise you of a fitted diet for your health condition.

- Water as have been said, remains to be a good cleansing element for the body. Water theraphy is a good treatment that's also good for your skin. Drink lots of water and get rid of those toxins!

- When you're hungry; there's a greater tendency to indulge on overeating on a latter time so please, don't skip meals.

- Exercise! Try to jog or brisk walk at least 30 minutes every single day. This is also good for your heart.

- Do no go into crash diet; slowly aim in losing 2 or less pounds a week. Sticking into a faster but harder diet can get you depressed and thus intend you to give up easily; the result? You will gain more weight.

- Learn while dieting! Read good books on how to count your calories; how to choose or make of delicious but nutritious foods that do not overdo your weight; etc.

- Learn the value of discipline. Obesity may also be aggravated by people who do not monitor their diet.

When all your efforts have been wasted and you finally decided to go with the flow; there are numerous fad diets available today. Fad diets are food selections which you will have to follow in a regular pattern. Select the best way to loose these calories! Here is a list of the latest fad-diet:

1. The Atkins diet suggests you to lessen your carb intake. So you'll say, this is quite easy; all you have to do is eat milk, cookies or ice cream with low carbohydrate! Well, think again, with atkin diet, there are surprisingly 2 dieters who already died due to health problems such as kidney stones, constipation, increase of blood acidity, etc.

2. The Blood type diet is quite interesting too! If you're Blood Type is O, you require meat in your diet; Blood type B needs dairy products whereas those under type A need vegetables. Most people do not know their blood types leading to poor diet; but on the other hand, a balance diet is vital for a healthy body. So consider this, will the blood type diet be effective if you'll loose some foods needed for nourishment?

3. You can also try the South Beach diet. This diet will not limit your intake of food; however, it will discourage you to eat those processed foods with saturated or high fat components. As a replacement, having large servings of vegetables and whole grains in your meals are highly recommended.

4. Soup Diet. As the name implies, your meals will be composed heavily of soups! It can be chicken and cabbage soups which can be accompanied by little servings of steamed vegetables, fruits or brown sugar.

5. The Chocolate Diet sounds tempting doesn't it?! Included in the menus are the well-loved chocolates, popcorn and pasta. Just make sure that pasta sauces have low fat ingredients and that fruits are included in the recipes. Excluded are sodas or alcoholic beverages, oily or fried foods, caffeine, foods with high calories and high sugar content etc.

6. You can also choose the Fruit juice Diet; the well-known is the Grapefruit Diet. You will have to follow the prescribed diet with fruit juices, some low-carb meals and a good amount of water for 18 weeks. A recent survey shows that many patients who undertook this diet lost more than 10 pounds in a 12-week average diet plan.

So now that you have a list of pretty good dietary programs, which is well-known nowadays, the moral will all lay in your hands. Good amount of discipline is necessary; and precautious moves should always be on a top priority.
