It is not so much a question of what weight you want to be, based on other people you have seen, usually in magazines and on tv, but rather what weight you should be. The weight that is right for your body.

Dr John-Michel Cohen who is a nutritionist and author gives his tips for finding your ideal natural weight. 

1) Be realistic 

Although you may see pictures and dream of such a body, your expectations need to be realistic. If your aim is too slim, you will probably end up putting some of the weight you have lost back on, by being realistic you will feel more successful in your achievements and wont get so discouraged.

2) Don't be too tough on yourself
