You need to eat lean meats (chicken, fish, turkey, lean beef) , low gi fruits (apples, bananas, pineapple, oranges), green veggies (broccoli, celery, green lettuce, spinach), only whole wheat breads (look on the package and see if the first ingredient is whole wheat flour, if it is it should be good unless it has high fructose corn syrup like Mrs Bairds does). Jillian Michaels from biggest loser has a great quote, "before you eat your food ask yourself, does it have a momma or did it come from the ground? If not don't eat it." Eat 5 - 6 small meals a day, this will increase your metabolism and help you to not feel so hungry in between meals. It’s all about portion and calorie control regardless of what food you are eating, but remember cleaning up your diet and eating X amount of calories of lean good healthy foods instead of X amount of calories of candy bars (I know you are probably not eating 4 candy bars a day but its just an example) will help you lose it faster. The leaner you are eating the faster you will lose it, and you will get a toned healthy look instead of a skinny jiggly look. You also need to drink at least 8 glasses (8oz) of water a day. Sometimes hunger is mistaken for thirst so if you are hungry drink 8 oz of water and wait 30 minutes, if you are still hungry then eat a light healthy snack. Water also helps you feel fuller longer and helps flush out toxins that may prevent fat loss. Also allow your self a cheat day (but don’t go over board and eat everything in sight or like 5 cakes in that day). Allowing yourself a cheat day once a week will help cut out cravings… Think of it like a reward if you did well with your diet and exercise that week have a piece of pie… If not just stick with you healthy food. You can find recipes for decent tasting healthy foods on sights like bodyforlife.com and bodybuilding.com and also on recipe sights like allrecipes.com, foodfit.com, cookinglight.com and foodnetwork.com

Losing weight is all about calories. The human body is only capable of losing 2lbs a week of body-fat. When trying to lose weight you must try to eat between 300-600 calories below your maintenance levels. For example... Im a big guy and my Maintenance calorie levels are 2600 now in order for me to lose weight i have to eat 2100 calories. Now that i know how many calories i need to eat to lose weight slowly and safely i have to choose a diet with types of food that will all add up to 2100 calories...
But first you will need to calculate your Maintenance calories which is the amount of calories you need to maintain your body weight. You can easily do that in the following link http://yoursuperbody.com/A-Nutrition-diet-superfoodsfitness-muscle.html and scroll down to the Calorie Counter and then click "Settings" then fill in your Weight and Age etc. Once you have completed that subtract somewhere between 300-500 calories from your Maintenance Calories and then begin using the Calorie Counter to work out what food and how much of it you can eat.

ALL FOODS!! Just in moderation. You of course can't have a pack of M&M's everyday, but you also want to be satisfied. If you limit yourself on what you eat, then you will become bored and hate your diet. You have to eat what you want but in moderation, and know if you slip up you slip up. Tomorrow is a new day. Go for fruits in the morning, along with some protein and a simple carb. Try an apple, eggs, and whole wheat toast. For lunch do some lean meat on a sandwhich or load up a salad with vegies. And dinner, go with chicken or fish. And a potato or another veggie you like. Its really all about making smart portion sizes! And exercise. Don't forget, you cannot just eat right, you have to exercise too!!

Fruits and veggies and whole grains. You don't need special recipies or diets. Anything with a lot of water and fiber content will fill you up and keep you full. Making sure you get protein will also keep you fuller longer. Basically fill your plate with 50% veggies, 25% whole grains (nuts and beans), and 25% protein (meat). You also can't lose weight without exercise so get movin'.

White meats, fruit, veggies. Stay away from breads and pasta's. Also stay away from the junk food (obviously). if you are going to consume carbs, thats ok just make sure you are exercising. You need carbs for energy. Hope this helps

fruits and veggies (especially celery)
try going vegetarian
dont eat out
lay off the carbs
try special K protein bars and water mix
(bars=180 calories, 23g protein---water=30 calories, 5g protein)

I say thats a good breakfast and the bar is a good snack, but not for lunch or dinner. That's not good at all. You are going to be missing come vital vitamins and protein for other foods.
I know its hard, and its great that you've found something that is healthy and tastes good to you, but too much of a good things isn't too good. SO here's what you should do.
Stick with the cereal for breakfast, maybe add a fruit that you like to it, and its good!
Lunch, maybe a sautéed piece of chicken or fish (high in proteins) + vegetables that you like. (I usually put some steamed green beans with it.)
Dinner can be some whole wheat spaghetti with your favorite type of sauce + (again) your favorite vegetables (I mix in spinach and onions with my sauce, you don't even taste it)
Another favorite of mine are salads. I usually sauté a piece of chicken, cut it up. Then I make a salad with lemon, olive oil, and salt (THATS IT!!). Put it together, and there something healthy and filling.
The trick is just finding the healthy foods that you like, but it takes time. I just find some healthy recipes and try them out. Its a lot of trial and error honestly. GOOD LUCK! :D
OH DON'T FORGET TO EXERCISE! C:
