Firstly, there's good credence in the practice of healthiness and a lot to be said for an on-going healthy lifestyle. It is vital and the key to a long lasting weight control and management program. However, you can loose a few pounds quickly, easily, and safely, here's how: One of the essential things is to slash the sodium consumption from your eating habits. According to a recent study by the Center for Disease Control, (CDC) your intake should be no more than 500 mg of added sodium per day. Don't go on an all out eating spree, especially during the weekends. Instead, the  best way to loose weight on the weekend is to consume more oats and whole grain, supplemented with yogurt and fresh vegetables.

Also, consume more potassium, which will give your body a chance rid itself of sodium. Eat such foods as sweet potatoes, apricots, figs, oranges, beets-all is high in the big "P" (potassium). In will also be good to add soluble fiber. Just know that soluble fiber is found in plants. The presence of soluble fiber in the system will allow for: 1) food to pass through undigested, 2) delay the empty feeling in the stomach, 3) giving a feeling of  fullness, and help control the munchies. Soluble fiber can be gained from eating the following:
>Oats, legumes,
>Barley, apples,
>Pears and flaxseed

It will be imperative to include whole wheat, and whole grain, such as brown rice, broccoli,carrots, dark leafy vegetables (collards. kale, spinach, etc) and red grapes. Drink hot water with lemon in the morning to get going and as a nightcap before going to bed. This will lower the PH in your belly and help natural probiotics, according to Beth Reardon, Director, Duke University, Intergrative Medicine. Reardon goes on to say,  "as a health bonus, all the excretion will help rid your body of toxins, excess estrogen for women and will lower your Cholestrol  levels as well"
