Love food but want to lose weight?

If you love food but want to lose weight, then:

Eat more...
  • Fresh and steamed vegetables but go easy on sauces and salad dressings.
  • Whole grains like cooked cereals, brown rice, whole-grain breads, pasta.
  • Tubers and other vegetables-potatoes, yams, squash, and all kinds of beans, lentils, and peas.
  • Fresh, whole fruits.
Eat less...
  • Refined, processed, and concentrated foods. They are high in calories and price and low in nutrients and fiber.
  • Nuts, meats, and rich dairy products. While these foods are nutritious they have little fiber and are very high in fat and calories. Meats and cheeses, for instance, are 60-80 percent fat.
What else you can do?
  • Drink plenty of water everyday. Try herb teas, mineral water or just plain water.
  • If you feel bored, frustrated, or lonely, go for a walk, drink a glass of water, read a book, call a supportive friend. Or, you can feast on natural foods like semi-frozen grapes, juicy melons, or crunchy carrot sticks.
