Although when I was manic once I was so healthy I lost 7 pounds in a week.

Try not to skip breakfast - This is the most important meal of your day. It gets you motivated to do just about anything. Don't eat while you watch T.V. - If you start doing this you really aren't paying any attention to your food plus you tend to eat more while doing this. Make sure you incorporate a lot of fruits and veggies into your eating habits. Try to stay away for junk food.
