Many of my patients ask about the best of foods for weight loss. The major emphasis is amount of fat burned through exercise and the amount of food eaten. I recommend six small meals per day which keeps the metabolism burning without the starvation mode. Also, healthy people who do exercise need to be drinking one gallon of water per day and the reason for this is it helps to flush the by-products of metabolism out through the kidneys.
Chicken white meat, turkey 93% ground, fish all white fish except for shell fish, may use salmon once a week. All meats are broiled or baked. Best is a George Forman Grill easy to get at Walmart.
White rice only-it burns quick
Mixed vegetables, green vegetables except for arthichokes, small amount of green onion, and a handful of Cherub tomatoes.
Egg whites may use one yoke per day
Oatmeal Quaker Oats (plain)
Blueberries, Strawberries, Raspberries (frozen), Apples (green), Pineapple, Grapefruit. All fruit must be fresh not canned except berries can be frozen.
Balsamic vingarette dressing (organic), Mrs. Dash (all kinds), Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Paparika. Peppers (green, red, yellow), Herseys dark cocoa powder ( this can be used to put in oatmeal). I can't Believe it is Butter (Spray only).
Water, crystal lite, Mio flavoring for water, green unsweetend tea, coffee, Nestles Coffee Mate Liquid (no sugar) add to oatmeal or coffee sparingly.
No rice after 4PM daily.
If you don't see it don't eat it or drink it.
Amounts eaten in 6 small meals a day is individualized per physical activity of the person and weight needing to be lost. Diabetics can safely eat this diet as it is low carb.

Consistency is key to weight loss. Exercise in AM after protein drink taken then eat your breakfast. The first two weeks of any diet is rough and know that you will be hungry but after the two weeks you will start to adapt.
