The right combination of carbohydrates, protein and fat eaten at regular intervals will help keep your energy levels high to lose weight. This diet includes balanced meals designed to boost your energy throughout the day.

• Eating healthy snacks will help keep your blood-sugar levels even so that you don't have energy "highs" and "lows." This meal plan includes tasty food suggestions to eat every three to four hours to keep your energy level from falling.

• Not drinking enough liquids can cause you to feel fatigued due to dehydration. That's why this diet includes fruit juices and skim milk with every meal choice, rather than ultra-sugary sodas or sweetened beverages that can cause energy lows.
