  • Portion control (eating less of whatever it is you want) is more important than exactly what you eat. Vegetables, especially raw or steamed veggies--you can eat lots and lots of those, because they have high water content and relatively few calories for their bulk. Fresh fruit is good in moderation but calories stack up from the sweeter fruits esp and you can't eat tons of them. Whole grain bread, cereal, and oatmeal are good for you and filling. Your body needs protein every day--eggs provide good cheap protein but the yolks are high in cholestrol, a fat. Multivitamins are important to your health. Avild concentrated sweets and fatty foods. Butter, mayonnaise and cheese are big weight-increasers for many people. Always drink at least 8 glasses of WATER--yes, I mean plain water, daily.

  • Jenny Craig and Weight Watchers? I know if you eat pickles the vinegar would go through your system pretty quick and help you lose weight. I think any food could probably help you lose weight if you have portion control or a blender. Hmmm google might have better answers.

    eating lots of fresh veggies will do the trick for the inside as well as the outside! carrots are excellent for the eyes!!!

  • Foods that have low calorie density. ie) apples instead of chips. Protein helps you stay fuller longer, and so does fiber. It's weird, but adding the food that is good for you in your diet, will mean fewer calories (generally leads to weight loss) and staying fuller longer.

    Good luck!
