I went from eating a lot of deep fried food to a healthy diet and no deep fried foods. My main success is counting calories. I limited myself to a 1200 calorie intake a day for 30 days. I made sure I took vitamins and supplements. I felt a lot better in 10 days after I started.
I lost 16 lbs in 30 days. I eat oatmeal, honeynut cheerios, post almond, eggbeaters, eggs, turkey bacon, 20 calorie ham slices, 35 calorie bread, bananas, peaches for breakgfast. A lot of salads for lunch. Nothing but healthy dinner meals with fish, chicken, or very lean redmeats and lots of veggie
