Diet foods: Make half your meal vegetables and fruits. Go for variety. And keep in mind that potatoes and french fries dont count. Choose whole grains & limit refined grains. Pick the healthiest sources of protein. Drink lots of water. Stay active. Check out http://www.Sparkpeople.Com or http://www.Myfitnesspal.Com.

No: it isn't about a particular thing TO eat... it's about avoiding things that are making you fat. Diet diary or not eating for 1-2 meals will induce the triggers that run what you eat. They tend to be in categories internal (emotions) external (cues) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1775472781/1708440999?token=378a5145 gives many details on this.
