Some good ideas. Perhaps we should start with portion size. I read once that someone bought retro cupboards, but not new ones recycled ones for their kitchen and they could close them when they put in their modern dinner plates because they have increased with our obesity.
Make salads 2 at a time! one for today and one for tomorrow!
Reduce your carbs and sugars more than your fats. I read an article that said the milk industry is going to phase out skim and 1% milk

Sensible ideas to put into practice! I do most of them, slipped while on an extended visit with family. I need to get back on track!
Take a look at the DASH diet. The diet is highly recommended and does not require special foods. I tried other diets and found
the DASH worked for
me. The primary reason I started it (beyond the need to lose weight) was that I was pre-diabetic (burning feet). After a few weeks my feet stopped burning and in total I lost 60 pounds. Something to consider: https://medlineplus.gov/dashdiet.html
Great works are performed not by strength,
but by perseverance.
