Make small changes in your diet at a time. Don't be ashamed if you mess up. You are required to do 6 months because changing eating habits is HARD! Work with your nutritionist and let her know where are are struggling. It's nutrition and food habit counseling! Use it that way! I lost 30 pounds during my 6 month nutrition program. It really isn't a DIET. It's an eating habit and lifestyle change. Make small changes at a time and you will do great! I just got my surgery date for December 21st!

Make a little list and check off when you have mastered a goal. For instance - I gave up all soda and switched to ice tea the first month, then I stopped doing any fast food or if that is too hard - ditch the fries, then half the bun, etc.

Do 3 meals and two Snacks. Make the snacks a Protein and a fruit like berries and string cheese, an apple and 1oz of cheddar.

Eat at a table only, not in the car, not on the couch, not in front of a computer or tv. Notice your food, eat slower, stop after 10 minutes and see how full you feel, leave food on your plate.

I agree with everyone else, keep track of what you are eating, make small changes one at a time. Don't beat yourself up if you have slips because you will. Learn your triggers.
