  • Stay away from prepackaged foods, cook from scratch, meats and vegetables and brown rice...use olive oil as your main oil and grapeseed oil is good too. Stay away from all other vegetable oils and lard and margerine....use real butter in small amounts, stay away from anything with corn syrup in it...homemade soups and stews are good...ezekial bread is good....for snacks fruits are good, bananas are filling....use natural peanut butter ....there are a lot of good recipes out there, just google .....good luck!

  • High fiber, low fat foods. Fresh fruits and veggies, oatmeal, Cheerios. ANY cereal that has high fiber. Exercise is a big help too.

  • keep fresh veggie and fruits available and stay away from preproccessed foods. I agree with others about seeing a dietitian to help with recipes, too. Good Luck
