Fun activity: Diet and weight loss comes down to input calories vs output activities. No food will ever help as much as more fun aerobic activity, something you enjoy and makes you sweat. Then look for foods low on the glycemic index - vegetables in particular.

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.
