Hi if removeing weight and keeping it off is your goal then you have to make a life style change there is no going back to old ways . so make a plan you can live with for life that includes good for you foods ... the usual lean meat fruits vegies fat free dairy
whole grains nuts in moderation .. include an occasional favorite it helps with the feeling of being deprived .. make an effort to eat proper portions ... It is helpful to weigh and measure all the meats a fruits nuts etc ,,
