The number one New Years resolution for us every year is to lose weight and exercise more. Sure a great way to start the New Year. The trouble is will you stick to it?  I started mine early about a week before Christmas. Basically I have given up sweets which is so hard for me. I am eating more vegetables, chicken, lean meat and keeping the carbs low.

It seems I am a yo yo dieter, up and down 25 pounds every other year.  Not the best for ya. I do have to have a few cheat days a month. The best way of course from what I hear is to just change your eating habits.

If it's your goal to lose weight this year, here are the top 5 best diets from advisory.com

I have a few friends that are really into healthy eating, and if you diet they say 80 percent of it is eating the right foods. The other 20 percent is exercise.
