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.

Hi Adrian, I’m 25 and 5’4”. I’m also about 195lbs. I want to lose about 50lbs as quick as possible. My main reason for wanting to lose weight is so I can love myself again and be healthier. I have a pretty busy schedule, and have limited home space to workout in. I have a bit of a belly. Reading up on all your diets and useful info, I’m still not quite sure where to start. Please help me love myself again.

Hello,

I was wondering why you claim that people can lose weight eating anything they want, then at the end of the article you list 42 (whatever the amount) things they can't eat. This article makes NO sense. For instance, you say Don't Drink Your Calories, then a paragraph away there are drink recipes??? I am not trying to be mean, but maybe you should just have a good read-through and make some changes. Thanks, Kristine

LOL - you must have skimmed the article SUPER FAST bc I mention it EARLY in the article.

You want to avoid this foods b/c they increase your appetite making you want to eat more OR too many calories which MAY cause you to gain weight.

eating anything is fine as long as you watch calorie intake

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??

calit

that is called skinny fat. you should avoid processed food, sugar limit salt - use himalayan salt or sea salt instead - avoid saturated fats and use natural source of fat like avocado, coconut oil, nuts

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!
