I am frequently asked about my weight loss by family and friends and the first question is, how did you do it?”  When I answer, “diet and exercise” I can see the disappointment on their faces. Everyone wants a magic pill. I don’t have a magic pill but I do have The Ultimate List of Foods for Weight Loss, backed by science and research. This is what I have been eating for over 7 months and helped me lose 80 pounds and counting. The food on this list will also help you with permanent weight loss.

Diet Coach

In September 2019, I decided to become my own diet coach. I was no longer going to support the multi-billion dollar diet industry. No more fad diets for me! I got tired of excluding one food or another or eating one type of food for days or weeks. 

I was also looking for a lifestyle change, not a diet for a particular period of time. I know that losing weight is hard, but keeping it off is even harder. I am very aware of the fact that once you stop your diet, you go right back to some and then all of your old eating habits. I wanted a plan with foods that I can eat at least 80 – 90% of the time (of course, you have to live in the real world!)

So I did a lot of research and read studies that were done by real experts. And I came up with my The Ultimate List of Foods for Weight Loss.

The best news is that the ultimate list of foods for weight loss does not include anything that you can’t get at your local grocery store. And there is a lot of variety so you won’t get bored. On past diets, I quickly got fed up with grilled chicken and salad. I experienced what I called diet fatigue and therefore the diet became harder and harder. And I eventually stopped the diet. This list is different, because there are over 80 items.

Food for the Whole Family

If you have a family, it will be easier for them to get on board because you will be cooking real food, just healthier. I do most of the cooking in my family and both my husband and son now think I’m a great cook! The biggest bonus is that they have also lost weight as well!

You may have heard that we make approximately 200 food decisions every day! Can you imagine 200 times a day deciding what to eat? Obviously, since we are not even aware of it, the vast majority of these decisions are made with subconsciously or little or no thought. So what if you had the ultimate list of foods for weight loss that will become the basis for healthy meals for you and your family.

Foods on the Ultimate List

There are 17 types of foods to eat or avoid. That’s it. Just 17. If you read my previous post, Top 5 Foods for Permanent Weight Loss, as expected, the list includes protein, fiber, vegetables, fruit, and nuts and seeds. But there are some surprises. 

Here is one surprise on The Ultimate List of Foods for Weight Loss. Avoid foods that cause inflammation. Research has shown that chronic inflammation in our body can make it more difficult to lose weight!  Inflammation can be caused by too much sugar and processed foods. Anti-inflammatory foods include salmon, avocado, and broccoli. See it’s all good stuff!

The Ultimate List of Foods for Weight Loss is too much for a post, but just request it below and you will get the free PDF! You will also get a bonus grocery shopping list that you can use every time you go to the supermarket!

Great post! I have food staples at home that I can’t do without. Lots of healthy vegetables and lean proteins. It really makes all the difference. I’ve managed to lose 30lbs since changing my diet and upping my exercise regime. I certainly wouldn’t have achieved that by eating processed foods.

Millie July 3, 2020 - 12:21 pm

Hi Lousie, Congratulations on losing 30 pounds! That’s amazing! Yes, I really think that processed foods are probably the worst thing that we can eat!

Eating the right foods is so important for weight loss. There are definitely foods that help and foods that hinder.

Millie July 3, 2020 - 12:19 pm

Hi Patricia, Yes, the right foods will go a long way in helping you lose or maintain a healthy weight.
