What do you suggest I should eat that can be considered “healthy” and that will help me lose some weight?

Part of my 2009 New Years Resolution is to eat right this year. What foods do you suggest I should eat? Please be specific…don’t just say fruits and veggies like the whole world already knows! Also will eating these foods help me lose some weight too? Thanks!

    Well, the reason people don’t tell you particular fruits or veggies is because THEY ALL HELP YOU TO LOSE WEIGHT! Follow these tips to lose weight and keep it off for good:

    Eat food as close to it’s natural state as possible. (Ex. veggies, fruits, beans, seeds, eggs, lean meat/not beef jerky or sandwich meats.) You don’t want all those additives, preservatives, fats, food dyes, etc. They mess with your metabolism and toxify your body.

    Rule of thumb: If it comes in a wrapper, (meaning it’s processed,) don’t eat it!

    I would also limit cheese and meat since those are fattening and you can get your calcium and protein from other sources, like leafy greens, and quinoa.

    Just eat a little less than what you normally do, the goal is to not feel stuffed, just full. Eat many small meals throughout the day to keep the metabolism high and burning. You won’t have to count calories, and you will lose weight. Do not starve yourself!! Starvation mode makes you lose muscle and makes you gain fat. When you eat again, your body will hoard fat and your lost muscle will be replaced by fat. Muscle is metabolically active and burns calories even while you are resting, so losing muscle from starving is detrimental. Also you become a skinny fat person, that looks disgusting because there is no muscle tone.

    If you get cravings, think of what it is you’re craving: texture, taste?

    For example, you crave sweets. Eat fruit. Or drink vanilla almond milk. Or eat butternut squash or sweet potatoes.

    Or if you crave something salty, have nuts, or have tomatoes or cucumbers with salt.

    Crunchy, have nuts or seeds

    These are just some examples. If you crave chocolate, eat the 85% dark chocolate. You will get tons of antioxidants, and more chocolate to satisfy your craving with less junk.

    Do not drink pop, even diet pop. Diet foods are evil and all the artificial sweeteners WILL make you gain weight. Studies have proven this.

    Also, spot reducing does not work. You cannot spot reduce. Your body type might either be a pear, apple, hourglass, or rectangle. Losing weight will only make you a smaller version of that body type. “Spot reducing” exercises like squats will only build up the muscle and make it bigger, I suggest you balance out the problem by building up the muscles in the areas that you lack, making you more of an hourglass.

    Also exercise, constantly challenge your body and you will lose weight! Don’t buy into the acai berry, special K, or colon cleanse scams. They’re scams scams scams!!

    ok i will give you a remedy. In the morning when you wake up, go to the kitchen fill a glass with water add two tablespoon of honey mix it and drink it. Believe me or not this really works for losing weight and you have to do this without eating any other food. With this i would suggest you to exercise daily for an hour or less. There you go!. i hope my magic will work for you. Good Luck!

    Honestly…….I’ve tried a lot. For some reason when my body eats a whole wheat, ham/turkey/chicken, lettuce and tomato……or just any sandwich I start losing weight. I track my calories daily and eat Lean Cuisine at about every meal, it’s the same calories. But when I reverted to how I lost weight the first time (sandwiches), I lost weight faster. If your a man, I would suggest sandwiches and protein shakes. If your a woman, try sandwiches. TRACK those calories though and don’t go past what you usually take in.
