August 1, 2005-- Posted at 4:57 PM CDT

Hudson, Mass.,PRNewswire-- While the goal of eating right is more critical than ever, today's faster, on-the-go culture creates great challenges for dieters, says Sandeep Shah, CEO of Skyscape Inc., the leading provider of interactive mobile solutions for health conscious consumers and medical practitioners.

Almost two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese and of those Americans who diet, only one in four will stick to it for a full year. How does one stay on the smart track to healthy eating? Shah offers these tips:

* No Fooling, Get Real: Avoid fads. Find a diet that is understandable, workable, and rooted in the medical profession. See the federal government's new "2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans," at * Don't Leave Home Without It: Take your diet to work, shopping, and to restaurants on your PDA or smartphone. For instance, The South Beach Diet(TM) OnHand at, ensures approved recipes, meal plans, and eating-out guides are available anywhere. * Nurture the Spirit: Stay positive and enthused by surrounding yourself with success. Share healthy-eating habits with friends, learn from personal achievement stories in magazines and TV, and strengthen your resolve with others in support groups. * Use the Net: Log onto Internet sites for interactive planning and support tools. Example: Online at, dieters can track their weight, plan meals, keep a journal, generate supportive shopping lists, ask questions of experts, and reference food guides and recipes. * Read the Label: Look for nutritional information on food packaging, restaurant menus and fast food bags. Understand the key factors you need to stay on diet to avoid "information overload." * Sleep Better: Research shows that individuals who sleep less than eight hours a night have a lower level of a key hormone that regulates appetite. Insufficient sleep leads to weight gain and creates a vicious circle, says sleep expert Dr. Nikos Linardakis. * Make Getting Healthier a Passion, Not Another Chore: Undertaken as an overall personal improvement effort, the practice of adapting your eating habits and exercise regimen to look and feel better -- is a natural fit.
