Fitness expert Janice talks about E, F, G, H, I and J of the ABC’s of Slim. E is for Estimation -- developing an eye for appropriate serving sizes can make or break your diet. F is for Fructose -- a study published last year in the journal “Hepatology” found that feeding fructose-laced water to rats increased their risk of obesity. Ditch the artificially sweetened juices and sodas and get your fructose from fruit. G is for Grapefruit -- kick off every meal with a half a ruby red or 8 ounces of grapefruit juice and you could speed up your weight loss. H is for Hydration -- studies show that drinking water can slightly increase your caloric burn rate. I is for Insulin -- the amount of sugar-regulating hormone you secrete may dictate the diet you should follow. J is for Journaling -- if you write down everything you eat, research has shown you can cut your intake by 500 to 1,000 calories a day.
