Watch Ratios: The key is to balance your carbs and protein. First stay away from sugar filled soft drinks, drop the candy and drop the starchy foods. For more success start each day with 30 grams protein and make sure each meal has no more than twice as many carbs as protein. Find a plan you can stick with. <a href="http://www.Researchbasedweightloss.Com/ ">research based wt loss ctr</a>.

Real food: "real" food is food that's unaltered from the way it was grown. Fresh vegetables, fruits, lean meat and fish. Notice i left out sauces, flours, refined anything, soda, sugar, and pretty much everything you find in a grocery store. Eating processed food is like like eating your food "pre-digested". Your gut is supposed to work at breaking food down so you use it slowly. Too fast equals too fat.

Don't 4get exercise!: The goal is to burn more calories than you consume. Watch your diet-eliminate junk food and don't over eat. Consider liquids as well-soda, alcohol, etc contains a lot of calories. Exercise multiple times a week. If you find an activity you really enjoy you'll be more likely to engage in that activity. Avoid fad diets that could prevent you from getting adequate nutrition. Make healthy choices!

See below: Lean proteins, good fats (nuts/seeds/salmon/ tuna/omega-3's/polyunsaturated), low glycemic carbs including fruits & veggies. Avoid sugary foods, fast foods, high fructose corn syrup & sugar substitutes (don't turn off the hungry signal so u keep eating). Control portions. 4-6 mini meals instead of 3 large ones keep blood sugar level more steady & stave off hunger.

The best foods: For weight loss are the ones you don't eat. There are no "magic" weight loss foods. You just need to eat fewer calories than you burn off through activity and exercise. It's 3500 calories to gain or lose a pound. Don't get your health and nutrition information from friends, tv or the internet.

Eat less ; exercise: The key to losing weight is not a temporary diet but permanent changes. Sugars ; simple carbs from grains esp. Cause weight gain. It's also wise to avoid fried foods. I like dr. Furhman's diet: http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht dr. Weil has useful info: http://huff.To/19ygs8y- see his "discuss that" link in his article. Exercise is also important! it's also best to choose organic foods:http://bit.Ly/19xax7e.
