Fatty foods contribute to weight gain. Proteins, and vitamins, are best for losing weight.

FOODS TO EAT AND FOODS TO AVOID FOR WEIGHT LOSS


Refined processed carbohydrates are a major cause of weight gain, obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and many other diet related diseases. For weight loss, eliminate or strictly limit them (apart from an occasional treat). If you are unsure what these foods are, you will find a page link leading to a free list at the bottom of this answer.

Replace refined processed carbohydrates with specific fat burning proteins and take advantage of the thermic effect of these nutritious foods. If you are unsure what these foods are, at the bottom of this answer you will find a page link leading to a free list and more detailed information about the fat burning thermic effect of these foods. Drink plenty of water to enable you body to process these foods. The benefits of water are tremendous. Cut out sodas they are loaded with sugars. Cut out even diet soda, they can cause water retention. Look out for 'hidden sugar.' For example, many protein bars are loaded with sugar.

Avoid fruit juice; juice is loaded with both calories and carbohydrates. Eat a low carbohydrate, quality protein, breakfast; this will stop you overeating later in the day.

Keep a food dairy to track what you are eating. Eat turkey, fish, lean ground beef, lean steak, grilled chicken, vegetables and salad. Avoid the "no fat or low fat" dressings. They are loaded with sugar. Any weight loss diet is not an overnight diet but if you are consistent, you will establish good habits.

As stated earlier, to lose body fat and keep it off, eliminate processed refined carbohydrates. They are not only the major cause of many diet related diseases and condition, they also slow down your metabolism. When digested all carbohydrates turn into sugar, and sugar becomes fat. Therefore, think of eating carbohydrates as eating sugar and think of eating refined processed carbohydrates as eating concentrated sugar.

To increase your metabolism, allow yourself 20 to 60 grams of carbohydrates daily. Get those carbohydrates from natural sources such as non-starchy leafy green vegetables and only a moderate amount of low carbohydrate fruits such as berries. Remember that most fruit is high in fructose/sugar/carbohydrate.

There is no minimum daily requirement for carbohydrates, but they do have beneficial phytochemicals and fiber so eating some is fine as long as they are unprocessed.

FOODS TO EAT AND FOODS TO AVOID FOR WEIGHT LOSS, EXERCISE

You can do more to boost your metabolism. For example, weight/strength training exercises will increase muscle. Muscle is your METABOLIC FURNACE that will burn extra energy (calories) 24 hours a day. Similarly, mild cardio exercise or intense cardio will burn extra calories during and immediately after exercise. If you are too heavy to exercise, begin with the change in eating habits as set out earlier in this answer. When you have lost enough weight to exercise comfortably, then add exercise to your program.

FOODS TO EAT AND FOODS TO AVOID FOR WEIGHT LOSS, SUMMARY

As stated earlier, replace refined processed carbohydrates with fat burning proteins and take full advantage of the thermic effect of these foods. As stated earlier, there is more detailed information about the thermic effect of these foods via the page link at the bottom of this answer. Eat a small meal about every three waking hours (5 or 6 meals per day). You will not be eating more food; you will simply be spreading it throughout the day. Each of those five or six feedings should contain at least 15 grams of a fat burning food for a female or at least 20 grams per feeding for a male. This change will speed up your metabolism and help to curb any food cravings.

(If you already have any known condition or disease first seek the approval of your own physician before changing you eating or exercise habits.)

Generally the best foods to avoid are foods that are very dense in calories (fast food, candy, etc.), foods that have the bad kind of carbohydrates that your body absorbs very quickly (candy, bread, etc.), and processed foods. All of these are very bad with their nutritional values and should be avoided during dieting. These should be replaced with healthier options that have a low weight to calorie ratio, slowly absorbing carbohydrates and are unprocessed.

The problem with prepared weight loss foods is that they are very low fat or contain no fat. Sadly, fat is what makes food taste good. While the weight loss foods are initially interesting and the subsequent weight loss a good reinforcer, clients get bored eventually with the prepared weight loss foods and resort to supplementing their diets with preferred foods. Weight loss foods are also pricier than other foods and very often have high sodium content. Prepared weight loss foods are also a pain for someone who enjoys entertaining, dining out and traveling.
