But Can I Eat Anything I Want & Still Lose Weight?

foods to avoid lose weight

Yes, as long as you eat the right amount of calories to lose weight so for example…

If you need to eat less than 2000 calories per day to lose weight then its only 'BAD' for weight loss if you eat over 2000 calories and usually when a majority of your diet is from the list of foods not to eat you're more likely to end up eating MORE than you need to lose weight

Please note: Although you can lose weight eating the unhealthy foods listed on this page… You are more likely to develop unwarranted health issues like diabetes, yellow teeth, bad skin, looking older & etc.

Take Nopalina ladies. They sell them in Cardenas, Walmart and El Super. That will make you lose your stomach. It makes you go to the bathroom because your removing everything from your stomach. It's not fat. It's junk that stays in your stomach walls. I use it.

Hi. I am a 42yr old female. I have been blessed with good genes I guess because up to this point (even after 3 kids) I have remained slim & fit.
It seems like overnight I have gained 10lbs & in all the wrong places.
I am addicted to CocaCola...which I am working on. But I need to lose this weight as well as tone my flabby arms & belly.
What do U suggest??

Hi, I'm 42, 5'7.5" and have hit the highest weight I've ever been in my life at 245 pounds. I also have PCOS (diagnosed when I was in high school).My husband and I are trying to have a second child but I don't want to put either a baby or myself in physical harm by not being in better shape to carry to term without incident.
I have tried everything from counting points to calories and have had some successes, but none that 'stuck.'
Now I have a toddler and am a stay at home momma with limited 'me' time, but I don't want to give up!!
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time!

I am 40 with late stage neuro lyme disease, leaky gut, and slow digestion with liver issues. I am 5'0 and weigh 210 and would love to be back to 150 again. I had lost 60 pounds on hcg diet before I got sick, but now am told that I cannot drop that low in calories again due to my condition. What suggestions do you have to loose the weight?
