In brief: Eat healthy,eat less

To lose a pound a week, eat 500 calories less a day than you regularly eat.
This can be accomplished by increasing your consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables to 5-7 servings a day. Have at least two servings of fruits and vegetables at each meals, and vegetables generally have less calories than fruit. Try to avoid fried and fatty foods. Consult a nutritionist for more information

In brief: Reduce weight

This is a repeat of what I have said before.
My philosophy is that the best way to lose weight is not by dieting, but by changing your lifestyle to a healthier one. You don't need a drastic diet. Make small changes. Eat the right portions, eat 3-5 small meals a day, cut back on carbs and sugars, increase lean protein/veggie/fruit/water intake, and start doing some cardiovascular exercise.

In brief: See Dr. and eat less

Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories.
Examples include carrots, celery, and leafy lettuce (little or no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories.
