Diet really would help you, but it's been slow in giving out rewards.
I would be interested in a "diet" thread. We are going back on the South Beach Diet as soon as "the purge" is completed. (Meaning all of the "treats" are consumed and out of the house) I need to lose an additional 30 pounds. I've lost 30 already since last fall, but need to do more. I think that will help my pain / discomfort alot. Anyway, if someone wants to start a golf diet thread I'm in.
There is no secret ! It'll take time for the effort to show up in benefit and even longer to really feel the difference.
And don't touch the branded diet because most of them are too extreme.
There is no quick fix ( like in golf ), no boxed solution. But anyone with guidance of a licensed dietitian could get you started with a tailored diet plan suited to your personal condition and needs.
Stay away from processed food. We can't avoid it completely from everyday life but we can make decision to do our best. We eat at home a lot, dinner time is family time and wife would pack lunch for the kids all the way through High Schools ( not many other parent did this as I understand it ). Even when kids gone to higher education she still pack them food in containers for them to take it back to the dormitory for the week. Yes, we still eat out, but I can count on my two hands how many time in a year we'll visit our favorite restaurants .
Cooking and eating at home is the sure way of getting started, because you can also control the ingredients going into your dish.
Wife will make our favorite dish with modification of the ingredients and spice . Surprisingly with all the Good For You ingredients the taste and the texture came out as good or better than the original recipe with Less sodium, less fat, little or no red meat. Choose the certified organic products as much as feasible ( seasonal and financially ). Wife does not eat beef but she won't bar kids from having a hamburger once in awhile, cooked at home of course so she'll know what's gone into it (Grass fed, free range or certified organic ).
Home cooking and prepare it from scratch is the way we did it . Everyone could learn to cook and it does take time for preparation and cooking, but that's the effort we put into in order to have a quality life. Eventually one might even enjoy the culinary art, and having a great time spent with family. We've been shopping and cooking for the following week on every Saturday for years. Thanks to my wife whom was just okay around the kitchen when we got married but she learned quickly and willing to do things for the kids and I. We were very lucky to have her, of course, we all pitched in to help.
