The only problem I come across with is...Um...beer. It's usually 300 calories a pint...and I love it!
Tip 1: Find out how many calories you need (BMR Basal Metabolic Rate)
(Body Weight (lb) x 15) + (moderate activity (mins/day) x 3.5) = BMR in kcal
Since you wish to lose weight, deduct you BMR by 500 kcal
For instance, you weigh 140 lb and you perform 20 mins of moderate activity every day. BMR of this example = (140 x 15) + (20 x 3.5) = 2100 + 70 = 2170 kcal. BMR minus 500kcal; it would be 2170 - 500 = 1670 kcal. Therefore 1670 kcal is the target in this example to losing 1 lb per week.
Tip 2: Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day
Fruits and vegetables are packed with beneficial fibers, vitamins and antioxidants. They fill up your stomach fast so you feel full earlier. They are also low in calories and helps to keep your calorie count low.
