If you are eating a healthy diet weight loss should follow. A diet rich in vitamins and minerals and low in fat and carbohydrates is probably your best bet. Try it out. There are so many different diet plans or meal [plans out there you do not need to join a weight loss program. With all the recipes floating around the internet you can do this yourself very well.
Teach yourself how to cook and eat. It isn’t hard and you will be doing yourself a huge favor by doing so.

There are not too many things you can buy that come in a box that have less than 10 grams of carbohydrates.
Processed carbs are bad for you and they will make you gain weight like you never have before. They may also be what is causing you to be pre-diabetic, if you are. These bad carbs spike up your blood sugar and trigger your pancreas to release insulin to handle it. If your body isn’t planning on burning up the carbs when you give them to your body then they get stored as fat around your belly, butt, hips and thighs.
If you do not stop this in it’s tracks then someday soon you will realize that you have gained so much weight you will have to work hard to get it off. Gaining weight is a lot easier than losing weight. The more weight you gain the more at risk your health becomes.
High blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes can and usually does lead to stroke or heart attack. Some of us may have these risk factors because they run in our families. Add to this familial risk factor morbid obesity and you are basically a time bomb looking for a place to go off.

You can still have some of your favorites, just tone down the portions. A good rule of thumb is to take your usual portion size and then cut it in half. Half may still be too much and if the weight does not start to come off then cut that in half too. You will figure it out and find what works for you. Everybody is different and nothing will work the same for you as it does for someone else.
Start eating more salads and shopping for fresh items in the store. Making your meals from scratch will take no longer (usually) than making them from a box and you will be surprised how much better they taste and how much better they are for your healthy diet weight loss.
