    High fiber vegetables such as celery.  Chewing celery actually utilizes more calories than are contained in the food.  Celery is a great snack, additive to a salad or side dish.

    I can tell you what my wife and I are doing. We have made a choice to go sugarless. We eat no more than 10 to 15 teaspoons of sugar daily. Carbs contain sugar; therefore, to calculate the sugar content of a product:
    1st find the number of carbs.
    2nd find the amount of fiber.
    3rd subtract the fiber content from the number of carbs.
    4th divide the remainder of the carbs by 5.
    This will tell you how many teaspoons of sugar there are in that product. I'm writing an ebook now on the subject, and it should be ready within a couple of weeks or more.

    I mainly lose weight by eating what I want and counting calories.  When I reach 1500 calories or so, I stop eating until the next day.  When I'm really craving a midnight snack, I eat something low-calorie, like fresh peas.

    I eat whatever food I feel like, I don't/probably couldn't restrict my diet, because I love food so much - even junk food - But I have no problem with my weight because I put excersise into my every day life.  It doesn't take much either, just a short brisk walk around the block after coming in from work when time is limited, or even just for 20 minutes in my lunch-break. Or a bike-ride down the street.  So long as you do some regular form of excersise at least a few times a week then you should be able to eat all of your regular foods and loose weight.

    I recently lost a lot of weight within a short period of time. And as they say, losing weight is 80% diet 20% exercise.  I used to exercise like crazy, but since I was eating so many calories my weight wouldn't change. So if you really want to lose weight, you're going to have to make some changes to your diet before anything else.

    1. This is going to sound extreme, but to tell you the truth you're going to have to take extreme action to lose 35 pounds. Cut Out Carbs like white breads and sugars COMPLETELY from your diet. Now, I'm not going to lie, you'll probably feel like crap for 4-5 days... after that though you'll start shedding the pounds fast.

    2. Eat more protein. I recommend purchasing a casein-whey protein powder blend. If you go to a local health food store you can find some cheap ones... but with protein powders you get what you pay for. I recommend buying an expensive one in bulk. Drink one protein shake every time you get a craving for junk food.

    3. Start taking Fish Oil on a regular basis. You'll be surprised at how this helps uplift your mood, which in turn will most likely prevent you from binge eating.

    4. Mix one spoon of natural peanut butter in with your protein shake before you go to bed. This will help keep you feeling full the whole night. Make sure it's not regular peanut butter, but 100% natural. You can find it at your local grocery store.

    5. Start taking an Acai Berry and Colon Cleanser Supplement daily. A lot of people say this sort of thing doesn't work, but seriously, it  worked for me. It helped me feel better, and stay full off less food. Here's the website for the one I used HealthNews12 DOT net

    And remember to walk at least 30 minutes daily followed by a good exercise regimen. By the way, these tips work for both guys and girls.

    Good Luck

    I think eating a lot of vegetables is the key because they fill you up. Not potatoes, but things like tomatoes, carrots, salad stuff (no oily dressing!!! - try seasoned rice vinegar, makes a great dressing) mushrooms, peppers etc. There are lots of great low calorie veggies. And keep strict portion control over any meat you have. A few ounces only. Snack on a few nuts like almonds because they make you feel satisfied after only a couple. Avoid sugar and starch. No pasta. Drink lots of water. It is ALL about diet if you want to lose weight. Exercising is far too slow.  . No junk food, please.

    Have a balance of carbs, protien, and fat with every meal.  Should be at 30g of fiber per day.  Have fruit/veggies with ever meal.  Stick to a calorie count between 1200-1400 per day, depending on exercise.  Eat 5-6 times per day every 3 hours.

    I like to tell people "you can eat whatever you want... now here's the list of things you DON'T want"

    the golden rule is "nothing white at night". Stay off high carb foods like potato, pasta, rice, bread and so on after lunch.

    Carbs are not all bad though and if you don't have some earlier in the day you might struggle to stay awake and focussed. A good high-fibre cereal at breakfast is a good place to start.

    I made a hub you might like to have a look at:  http://hubpages.com/hub/Most-effective-weight-loss-diet

    You can eat whatever you want - just burn more calories than you consume. Daily calorie deficit of 500 cals equals 1 pound of fat lost in a week.

    Be as accurate as possible, measuring when you need to or looking up nutritional information for restaurants, if you eat out.

    Consequently, you should not pass up meals, specially breakfast every day, since it provides the vitality to do the job during the working day. Even so, be sure to select reduced fat meals to reduce your own consumption of calories from fat.

    Health is wealth

    I encourage people to make their own microgreens plants in their home or apartment. ( Look on YouTube to learn how to do it) I lost 40 pounds juicing and with a blender because I can't stand chewing on greens all day.

    Most of what I eat are tasty microgreens smoothie everyday and lost most of my lust for junk food. I got rid of 6 kinds of pills I had to take for my heart. They made me bleed and sick all the time. Today, I'm in the healthiest shape, that I've been in for decades. I no longer take no drugs except a happy herb called indica cannabis to sleep by.
