If you want to lose weight, you’re on the right track by searching out these foods, but if you want to really lose weight then take this advice: sign up for for free (we are in no way affiliated). That website will ask you about yourself and mathematically return a figure of how many calories you should consume per day to lose 0.5, 1 or 2 lb per week. These numbers help to demystify weight loss and if you type all of your foods into that website each day, you are highly likely to lose weight at the rate you decided upon.
