Another strategy that can help you lose weight, is to figure out what your problem foods are. If I can get most patients to stop eating 2-3 foods, I can get them to lose weight. The secret is that the 2-3 foods are different for everyone. Nuts are high on the list. As is cheese. As is pizza. As is ice cream. As are chips. As is bread. If you stop eating all 6 of these foods, you’ll probably lose weight. The good news is you probably don’t have to stop eating all 6. You can probably stop 2-3 and lose weight. Pick em and stop em.
