Calories and portion: The key to losing weight effectively is taking in fewer calories than you can burn. This results in weight loss. Women should restrict their calorie intake to 1200 a day. Men should restrict their calorie intake to 1500 a day. Portion control is essential. An easy way to understand portion control is to look on the back of any nutritional label. One serving size is always listed on the label.

Balanced diet: Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables and fruits, and whole grains; low in saturated fats and processed foods. Limit intake of alcohol. It would be good to supplement your diet with aerobic exercise for a healthful life style.

For a healthy diet,: Check out www.Drmcdougall.Com or www.Nutritionfacts.Org. Both doctors cite lots of research evidence for a low-fat, starch-based diet for good health, including weight loss.

MarketingVs.Science?: Sadly, most long promoted ideas about healthy food choices=driven by http://goo.gl/DKvdSI, https://goo.gl/oMgBct & marketing of less expensive &/or convenient stuff sold as food. Science=a method, not a result, always biased by goals of people involved & easy to perform badly. Study: http://NuSI.org, https://goo.gl/0oeAIk & http://goo.gl/P4ETNk. Donate to & implement these transformative efforts.
