No magic food: There are no good/bad foods. Eat less, exercise more. Avoid snack and junk and fatty foods. It's not magic, just eating less than your burn off. It's 3500 calories to gain or lose a pound.

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>.

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.

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.
