What should I eat in order to lose weight?

I need to lose like 10 pounds. And, I want to do it by summer break, if at all possible. See, I have been delaying, and delaying losing weight as much as possible, and now I just need to suck it up and lose it. My question is that, what foods should I eat in order to lose weight.
And also, how much exercise should I do in order to lose weight as well. I have heard it’s 90% diet, 10% exercise.

    forget everything you’ve ever read, im gana give you some information here that most people never learn in a lifetime, understand i am not just listing food here, this is a finely tuned diet plan and it will rip the fat off, but you gatta exercise with it to get some super fast results, you can pretty much bank on losing about 20lbs in the first 4 weeks if you follow this to a TEE! if your interested email me there are a few other important factors i am leaving out (and no i am not gana sell them to you, just more lengthy and most people arent’ ready to commit to a proper diet)

    you want to get serious about losing weight? boom here it is, but mentally prepare yourself the first week is hard but it gets easier i promise

    8am – 6 egg whites, 2 yokes and 1 fruit

    10:30am – 2 scoops of protein in 16 oz of water and 1 fat

    1pm – 4-6 oz. of red meat 2 cups of green vegetable)

    3:30pm – 2 scoops of protein in 16 oz of water and 1 fat

    6pm – 4-6oz. of red meat OR turkey breast, chicken, or fish and 2 cups of green vegetable

    8:30pm – Some kind of lean protein again (Chicken, turkey breast, tuna, egg whites, or another protein shake. No red meat.) Also another serving of good fats. If you want to add a 7th meal in 2.5 hours you can have another protein shake.

    and when i say fat, i mean add a good fat, like “flax oil”, almonds, almond butter, or fish oil. does not mean ice cream, i PROMISE you that this works, ive spent years of trial and error if you want more detail just ask, please notice that i am not trying to sell you anything or defering you to some bullshit website to buy pills or products like half of the answers out there, spammers.

    do cardio on MWF in the morning on an empty stomach (a secret of the pros, take 200-400mg of caffeine tablets 30min before workout you will have an insane cardio session, i use “vivran” but may not be availble to you where you are), for 50-60mintues, your choice just keep the heart rate up. you will freak the hell out at how much you tighten up in 4 weeks

    if you are a male, then add 2oz of meat to your meals so 6-8oz

    Weight loss is an overall process and there are no magic answers. Pay no attention to weight loss supplements and pills and all the latest fads. You need to think about many factors but most of them are related to issues we’ve known about for a very long time. There are many sensible things you can do that will make a tremendous difference over the long term if you need to lose weight. It can be done in a healthy way. This is what has worked for me.

    Keeping a food journal really does help. It will give you a much better sense of how much you are eating, and when, and why.

    Make a few additional small changes – walk everywhere, always use stairs instead of elevators, walk on escalators, get up and move around at least once an hour if your work or your life in general is sedentary, walk every day, use a pedometer. Walking 10,000 steps a day is a really good idea. Build up to a long brisk walk everyday, or most days. Be more active and watch less TV and spend less time on the computer. Buy one piece of exercise equipment to have at home and be strict with yourself about using it. Sometimes you can find mini-steppers or exercise bikes at second hand stores and thrift stores for just a few dollars.

    Start a weight lifting routine. Join a gym. Possibly you can find one that has someone who specializes in weight lifting programs for beginners. Weight lifting will increase your metabolism as well as improve posture and appearance overall. Even if you can’t get to the gym you can work out at home using things around the house. Invest in a good weight training book. The Dummies series actually has a good one.

    In terms of diet, cut out or reduce things like junk food, pop, fat, fast food. Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, fish. Particularly if you choose a vegetarian lifestyle include natural peanut butter, hummus, dried fruit and nuts. Pay close attention to getting the nutrients your body needs to be healthy.

    Make your portion sizes smaller. Use a smaller plate – in our society we have become accustomed to thinking that we need a large plate of food at every meal, and we don’t. About quarter of your plate of food should be protein and at least half of it should be veggies.

    Learn to count calories. At your current weight and activity level, you may possibly need about 2000 calories or more to maintain your current weight. So you will lose weight at a reasonable and healthy rate if you cut back to about 1600 or 1700 calories a day.

    Eat small amounts frequently, rather than three large meals. Never skip breakfast. Include some protein in your breakfast. It will help get you through the day.

    Drink plenty of water, at least 8 big glasses of water a day, and more if it is very hot, if you sweat a lot, or if you are exercising intensely, and eliminate fruit juices. Fruit juices have too many calories, so get your vitamins from fresh fruit, not the juice. You will begin to see changes in your body.

    Vary your routines. Don’t eat the same number of calories every day (vary your calories from 1400 a day to 1900 or 2000 some days), eat a variety of foods, and do different kinds and amounts of exercise. You will lose weight much more efficiently if you mix things up from time to time so that your body doesn’t adjust to any one routine.

    An area that many people overlook is getting enough sleep. You are much more likely to overeat or to binge eat if you are tired and not well rested, so get enough sleep.

    Check out websites about nutrition, exercise, weight training, etc. Here are a few helpful links.

    In order to lose weight in a healthy way for the long term you need to eat a sensible and balanced diet with all the major food groups like carbs, fat, and protein, so all must be included in your diet. It is the quality of these nutrients which will determine your success… or failure.

    Healthy Protein

    You need to eat protein from lean sources. In that way you will get your protein sources without also eating unnecessary fats. Good sources of protein include:

    Egg whites
    Chicken breast
    Nuts and almonds

    Healthy Carbs

    Carbs are considered the enemy by many people who wish to lose weight but this is not the case. The truth is that some carbs are good and some are bad. You need to eat high quality complex carbs to feel full and shed fat. Carbs are necessary so don’t cut them down too drastically for too long.

    Here are some sources of good, healthy carbs:

    Wild rice
    Sweet potatos
    Fruit and vegetables
    Nuts of all sorts
    Whole flour bread
    Whole pasta

    Healthy Fat

    Fat is considered the arch-enemy of course and it’s counter-intuitive to believe that you need to eat fat in order to lose fat. But the fact remains: our body needs fat to function well and operate as it should. It’s just a fact of life. Don’t make the mistake of eliminating fats from your diet. It will backfire. Here are some healthy source of fat you should eat to lose weight:

    Olive oil
    coconut oil
    Fish oil
    Nuts and almonds
    flax seeds
