Seemingly every day there is a brand new diet coming out. Some are good, but most of them are ridiculous gimmicks. Eat only meat, eat only vegetables, don’t eat anything, only drink liquids. What ever happened to a balanced, simple diet that helped you lose weight?

I propose that there are really two major components to losing weight: reducing calorie intake and increasing your metabolism through exercise. If you do those things you’ll lose weight. It’s just that simple.

In an effort to simplify things I’ve created my own super simple diet. It’s so simple that literally anyone can do it and it’s not even hard. It’s a small change, but this simple diet can have a very big impact.

The core concept of this diet is to eat four meals a day, but eat less each meal you eat. What this means is you begin each day with a bigger breakfast, but you end the day with a smaller dinner. That simple change will keep you full throughout the day while cutting overall calorie intake.

Here’s how it would work on a normal day. First you get up and eat breakfast of delicious scrambled eggs, two pieces of sausage, and a pancake or a piece of whole wheat toast with real fruit jam(no high fructose corn syrup).

Then at say eleven thirty or noon you can have a sandwich for lunch and perhaps a cup of soup or a piece of fruit. At lunch and throughout the day only have iced tea or water to drink. That will keep your liquid calorie intake down.

Later in the afternoon have a smaller snack at say three o’clock. A frozen dinner or a bowl of soup works well for this snack. Try to keep yourself under four hundred calories for your snack.

Then for dinner eat a small portion of meat and green vegetables. Do what you can to away from white breads and starches. Once you are done eating, only drink water for the rest of the evening. Don’t eat a snack because that won’t give your body enough time to metabolize your food before you go to sleep and it will turn to fat.

That’s all there really is to it. Make sure you are exercising regularly to maximize the benefits of the diet as you would any diet. The best part of this diet is that it requires the least amount of behavior modification of any diet I know of. It cuts your caloric intake without making you feel like you’re starving. On this diet you will end up eating one extra meal in the afternoon, but overall you eat less because you’re eating more often.

top 10 themeforest wordpress themes

Theme Forest is the largest marketplace of commercial WordPress themes with more than 3,000 WordPress themes available (3,089 themes as of June 2013) from hundreds of different authors. They have theme designs for almost every type of website you can image, from the usual blog, magazine, portfolio and business themes to the more niche application type themes such as church, restaurant, hotel and ecommerce themes.

In this post we list the 10 most popular themes on ThemeForest according to the number of theme sales. It’s interesting to note that all of these top selling themes are either business / corporate / CMS, or photography themes. There isn’t a single magazine or blogging style theme in the top ten, traditionally two very popular styles in the premium WordPress theme marketplace. While this probably reflects the large number of business and creative type themes compared to other theme styles in the ThemeForest marketplace, it’s also a testament to the versatility of the WordPress platform and the wide and varied uses beyond its blogging origin.

As you will see the ten themes below have been purchased by a lot of people! This should mean they are pretty good themes that have been tried, tested and updated to function well. However it probably also indicates some have been around a while, are a bit dated, and might not be the freshest or the best themes available anymore. I will let you decide.
