Not as much: Regular soda drinks are high in sugar and calories.If drunk on a regular basis they will add numerous calories to your daily total.This will result in less weight loss or weight gain if consumed too excess.

I'm gaining a lot of weight and want to loose it what diet do u recommend?

Hard choices: First ?, why are you gaining weight? Is there a medical problem like an underactive thyroid? If so, talk to a doctor. Otherwise, the best diet is one you can stick with. I recommend a diet that emphasizes fruits, vegetables and non animal sources of protein. Meat, fish and chicken can be added in small portions to add variety. It is also important to exercise 30-60 mins several days a week.

Yes: But some people need more protein and good fats so modify the diet accordingly. Olive oil can be added after food is cooked, and coconut oil is good to cook with. Avoid soy oil as it promotes weight gain more.

Not good: No one can tell you for sure but doing that will 1) introduce extra animal fat into your diet, 2) raise your cholesterol (only found in animal products), 3) deprive your body of essential nutrients not found in meat, 4) put an extra protein load on your kidneys, 5) deprive your liver and brain of sugars which are needed for metabolism. All meat diet is not a good idea.

Whole foods: Simple sugars and processed carbs should be avoided or limited. This includes any flour product. The fine grind makes absorption quick, and spikes your blood sugar which increases Insulin and promotes weight gain. Good fats such as olive oil and coconut oil are fine in sensible amounts. Eat a rainbow of organic vegetables and 3-4 oz protein with each meal 5 hours apart.
