I desperatly need to lose weight but I don't know what to eat. I'm really picky and very limited on what I eat and of course some not good. I need a list of some foods.

We would like to help, but you have to give us more information.
Do you have access to a farmers market, Do you live in a cold part of the country or warm.
Maybe you can tell us what you currently eat.
Apart from the cereal.

Check Judy's food log on fitday.com. She is in maintenance and eats more calories and fruit than I do while I'm trying to remove the weight, but it is a great place to start.

Welcome aboard. I would suggest eating whole foods. Try to stay away from process foods. Cut out sugars, white pasta, and unhealthy fats.

take your fish then add as a side the rice and mix in your veggies. I am not a big veggie eater but will eat them when mixed with rice. I also like tacos and manwich because I can sneak in all kinds if veggies there too.

beautifulbuffalo replied to mefirstforever's response:
Of course I cook but I cook everything plain. No spices at all. Don't like them. My kids are married and grown and learned how to cook from mom to which everything was whole made. Now just hubby and me.

Choose a Healthy Weight

http://www.extension.iastate.edu/Publications/NCR455.pdf



Eat for your body not your taste buds keep your heart, lungs, brain etc. in good health. Or as they say, "Eat to Live and not Live to Eat".



Buy the Protein Counter Book, it tells you Calories, Carbs, Fats and Proteins in over 15,000 foods and some fast foods and chain restaurants

The Protein Counter, 2nd edition

By Annette B. Natow, Ph.D., R.D. and Jo-Ann Heslin, M.A., R.D.



Count every calorie that goes into your mouth. Make yourself a "Food Journal" and log it down daily.



Break down carbohydrate calories, fat calories and protein calories. Eat the correct amount of each every day. You can find out how on page 10 of The Protein Counter book.



Face the facts about Portion Control, real portion sizes are small and we've all been duped by the food industry to eat way too much.

Treat meat as a condiment.

Think salad is the main meal.



PORTION SIZES:



1 starch = 80 calories

1 fruit = 60 calories

1 milk = 90 calories

1 vegetable = 25 calories

1 Fat = 40 calories





Also know:



Fat: 1 gram = 9 calories



Protein: 1 gram = 4 calories



Carbohydrates: 1 gram = 4 calories



Alcohol: 1 gram = 7 calories





Health Calculators they tell you how many carbohydrates, fats and protein to eat.

http://www.healthcalculators.org/index.html



Calorie Calculator to estimate the number of daily calories your body needs.

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/calorie-calculator/NU00598





Check in daily if you can.
