Even though it sounds too good to be true , delicious foods can help you lose weight. Weight loss is dependent on simple math and a commitment to lose weight. Eating fewer calories and adding more physical activity on a daily basis are the keys to success. In addition, watch your portion sizes and eat a diet high in whole grains, fruit, veggies, non-fat or low-fat (1%) dairy products and lean meat, fish, poultry and eggs.
Make sure you drink enough water and watch your intake of foods and beverages high in sugar and fat, along with limiting soda, iced teas, sports drinks, etc. Eating enough high fiber foods will fill you up and curb your craving for more food. Keep a food diary of everything you eat or drink and then review it weekly. Staying aware of how much and how often you eat is critical in keeping your calories under control.
Below is a short list of foods to include when you go to the supermarket.
