Can I Eat Anything I Want & Still Lose Weight?

eat what you like and still lose weight?

If I'm eating the right amount of calories to lose weight can I still eat anything I want and still lose weight?

In theory yes because…

Losing weight is basically all about eating less and/or exercising more so if you are eating less by eating the right amount of calories to lose weight then you can seriously lose weight eating anything you want whether you eat weight loss foods like fruits & vegetables or bad foods for weight loss like cake and ice cream and…

You see stories of this all the time when you hear about people who've lost weight on the cookie diet, the fast food diet and most recently the Twinkie diet and let me ask you this…

Have you ever been stranded on an island?

Probably not but if you were somehow forced to eat only 1200 calories worth of fast food, snacks & candy you would probably develop some serious health problems but you would certainly lose weight fast on only 1200 calories a day but…

In practice…

More often than not it is actually going to be harder for you to stick to a diet where you are allowed to eat anything you want - for example…

You are 1 of those unique people like Mark Haub (the professor of human nutrition at Kansas State University) who lost 27 pounds in 2 months on his very own Twinkie diet…

Mark Haub was strict enough on himself to eat only 1800 calories worth of mostly Twinkies & other foods but seriously ask yourself this…

"Can I seriously stick to a diet like the cookie or Twinkie diet and not be tempted to eat more than what I need to lose weight?"

Well imagine being on a potato chip diet where you're only allowed to eat 5-to-20 chips per meal or ½ bag of chips per day for a total of 1200-to-1800 calories…

That's why Whenever you are on a weight loss diet (especially one where you eat less than 1500-to-1800 calories) you want to eat a higher ratio of weight loss foods over anything you want to eat so…

It doesn't matter whether you go on the Twinkie diet, cookie diet or 1 of my diet plans because you need to pick a diet plan you can stick to for a very long time to keep the weight off permanently.

So what's the final answer?

Can you really eat anything you want to lose weight as long as you're eating the right amount of calories?

The answer is yes - of course you can but the answer quickly becomes no if what you're eating (like the bad foods here) is causing you to get hungrier forcing you to eat more making you gain weight.

You people are dumb and way off on this, even this article is way off on how to lose weight. Actually the true and best way to lose weight is, if you keep your metabolism balanced and keeping it that way by eating the right amount of foof like slow carbohydrates, fast carbohydrates, and protein. You can still eat pizza as long as you have lettuce and tomatoes by the side or 2 pancakes with 2 sausages with berries and strawberries to keep your metabolism balanced and be in fat burning mode. Remember if your metabolism is too high or to low You Are Storing Fat so eat right. I learned from FoodLovers type in Youtube and get yourselves informed instead of listening to this load of bull sheet article.

yes, just like you said "eating the right amount" and we both agree on that part but it does not matter WHAT you eat but how much so whatever diet you are on whether it be FoodLovers, atkins, ice cream or etc. you will still gain, lose or maintain depending on how much you eat

August 02, 2014


Wow some people are so dumb!. Just go bye a calorie counting book or just down load a calorie counting app.

I can't seem to lose weight. My husband and I eat the same amount of calories. He walks one mile after each meal. I can't walk because of my knees. I had my thyroid removed years ago and take a replacement. We are 75 and 76 years old. We eat
about 1200 to 1400 calories per day. Why can't I lose. Does the thyroid effect me that much? I am
at 183 and would like to be 150 like my husband.
