Eat the right foods. When we eat a lot of carbs our bodies can't use all that sugar and it stores it as fat. Eat 3 meals a day with 45 to 60 carbs and a sufficient amount of protein. Increase activity and lose. I did this and lost 45 pounds in 4 months. Keep busy. add 2 snacks each day plus meals.

You need to eat to lose weight. I have found out through the years that you cannot lose weight if you starve. Your body hangs on to the fat and you do not lose any after you have lost a little fluid. Eat at least 3 meals every day and a snack, but keep it healthy and low on fats & sugars.
Exercising & eating from all of the food groups has been my secret to success. I've also added fiber to my tracker to help me make sure I get in my healthy grains, fruits and veggies. I also have 3 servings of dairy. I'm a firm believer that you have to eat to lose. It works... I've lost 35lbs.
Make sure you are getting enough calories to support your workouts and weight loss. Making the mistake of not getting enough everyday can cause a long plateau and frustration. It goes against common sense to eat to lose but when you realize that it works, it's so simple!!!
