Less food and more: Exercise. It is not what foods but how much. It would help to curtail intake of saturated fats, sugars and processed foods. Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, whole grains and low fat milk products, but most of all reduce your intake and exercise more. See this site for more info. http://www.webmd.com/diet/default.htm.
