By following the guilines I have listed below. Just don't over do it. I eat fast food occasionaly and still lost weight.
I have lost fat and have gained better health by following this and the other program I mention in My Profile.
You will get everything you need by eating the following, listed in order of importance:
Raw leafy green veggies (romaine, red and green leaf lettuces, kale spinach, etc)
Solid green veggies - raw, steamed or frozen (asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, peas, peppers, etc)
Non-green, non-starchy (beets, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, etc)
Beans/legumes - cooked, canned or sprouted ( chickpeas, pinto beans, black beans, etc)
Fresh fruits (apples, bananas, oranges, watermelon, etc)
Starchy veggies (white potatoes, sweet potatoes, squash, corn, carrots, etc)
Whole grains (barley, millet, oats, brown rice, quinoa, etc)
Raw nuts and seeds (almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, etc)
Do not skip breakfast. Oatmeal with fresh fruit. No sugar or milk. Rice or almond milk is better. Smoothies can be good too, depending on what you put in it.
You don't have to eat eggs, fish or meat for protein. You can still eat them, but a huge salad with some chicken would be better.
Don't count calories or carbs. Diets and pills don't work. Supplements take over and weaken your system.
Drink filtered water. City water may have added chemicals. Can you really trust bottled water?
Pop is one of the worst things you can put in your body. Stay away from sugar, junk food and fast food.
Great exercises: walking, biking, swimming.
