Men and women are different ( DUH). Therefore what many men do for eating will not work for women. They have more muscle mass which means that they burn more calories. Women tend to be fluffy unless they work at strength training.

If you want to eat healthy then here are some things that will help.

1. Eat only when hungry. There is no "magic in eating breakfast to jumpstart your metabolism". Fiction.

2. Eat lots of healthy fats. You need fats to be healthy. Yes you do. Healthy fats come from eggs, avocado, olive oil, organic butter, coconut oil, nuts and nut oils. So you want to incorporate healthy fats into each meal.

3. Eat lots and lots and lots and lots of vegetables. ( corn is NOT a vegetable). Try to eat vegetables with each meal.

4. Eliminate or at least significantly decrease all starchy carbs- rice, potatoes, bread, pasta, cereal, cakes, cookies,grits. 

5. No snacking. No eating after dinner. Drink only water. NO SODA; and no artificial sweeteners. NO diet foods of any kind.

6. If you absolutely must have some of the forbidden carbohydrates- for example a baked potatoe, then you must include a healthy fat and protein.

7. Make a meal out of salads.

Hope this helps. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
