"Most of the time when I see clients, they are not eating enough," says dietician Lynne Nugent, manager of FitSmart at Virtua. "Yes, you need to eat less, but when you skip meals, your body enters a starvation mode, and it doesn't want to burn calories."

"Generally speaking, women should aim for 1,200 to 1,400 calories a day, and men should try to consume 1,800 to 2,000 calories a day," says Nugent.
She also recommends trying to get in three meals and two snacks each day.
"By spreading those calories throughout the day, you never feel too hungry, and your body has enough fuel to burn calories all day," says Nugent. She recommends filling up on healthy snacks like fruits, vegetables, oatmeal or low-fat cheese.
"I also tell people to try to have a snack around 3 or 4 pm," she says.
...
"Sugar is not the cause of all evil," says Nugent. "It's in a lot of processed foods because it is cheap and blends well in the product, and typically, processed foods are not very nutritious."
Some research has linked eating or drinking large amounts of any type of added sugar to health problems such as obesity.
"In general, the less sugar in your diet, the better off you are," says Nugent.
...
"Greek yogurt is a better choice for a post-workout snack," says Nugent.
...
"In reality, artificial sweeteners can make you crave more sweets," says Nugent.
"Artificial sweeteners in diet sodas and teas can stimulate your appetite, thus leading you to eat more."
The easiest way to avoid the artificial sweetener dilemma - don't drink diet sodas.
"I tell people who are trying to lose weight to stick with water," says Nugent. "Drinking your calories is never a great idea."
And yes, that goes for wine.
"Alcohol is even more dangerous when you are trying to lose weight," says Nugent.

"Snacking can be a great way to help you get all the vitamins and nutrients your growing body needs," states Lynne Nugent, RD, manager of Virtua's outpatient nutrition services. "You may be noticing that your body is demanding more food all the time; it may seem like you can never get enough to eat. This is perfectly normal as you hit the growth spurt in your late adolescence and early teen years. Small, healthy snacks are terrific for satisfying that nagging hunger. But you need to pay attention to what you're eating. Gobbling down a large order of fries after class may give you a temporary boost, but a high-fat snack will only slow you down in the end. Nugent advises: "To keep energy levels at their peak, look for foods that contain complex carbohydrates such as bagels, graham crackers or unsweetened cereal, as well as foods that contain protein such as low-fat yogurt and skim milk. Also, snacking every three to four hours will help keep you going when full meals just aren't feasible. Toss some fruit or low-fat granola bars into your backpack so you won't feel tempted to buy fast food or unhealthy vending machine snacks when the munchies hit. Most important, there's no substitute for breakfast, or some form of nutrition, within two hours of awakening. "A whole-grain bagel with peanut butter on the way out the door or an apple in the hallway between classes is far better than eating nothing at all," says Nugent.

...
Nugent advises not to ignore these cravings: "The trick is to pick the right snacks to fill the hunger gap.
