See Dr., and then...: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories.

Agree with Drs. F&K: There is no alternative to reducing your intake and increasing physical activity. While drugs and bariatric surgery may be useful, these things do not get you to good health. Joining a support group like weight watchers may help. Visit this site for info on nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/.
