Stop sugary drinks ; Helpful weight loss diets include natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and leafy green lettuce (without salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits contain natural sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, regardless of where it comes from.
Choose real foods. Eat plenty of vegetables, some fruits, and lean sources of protein and healthy fats. Avoid anything that didnt exist 100 years ago. Reduce processed and packaged foods. Drink water and avoid sweetened beverages. Don't eat second helpings. Get daily physical activity to build lean muscle and burn calories. Enlist the help of others. It's easier to do if family or friends are doing it with yo.
Stop. All forms of sugar and sweeteners---period!
