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.

Try not to get: Caught up in the idea of weight loss foods. There are no foods that will radically lead to weight loss(in fact people have lost significant weight eating junk food, just very controlled/limited amounts.) Focus more on trying to make eating changes for the long run that will help with weight control/health: this means portion control and colorful veggies, fruits, lean proteins, healthy fats.
