Healthy Balanced: Diet that is low in carbs like breads and pastas and cereals and get your carbs from fruits and veggies, eat lots of fruit and chicken. Watch portions. Get and app like fit day.Com that is free and it will tell you how many calories you need and match your exercise so you burn more than you eat.
