For several reasons including health related issues I have decided to lose some weight. I have lost 30 pounds since May. What is really working for me is a phone app called MyFitnessPal (MFP) I set a goal and then track my food each day. It is really helping me retrain my eating habits. Some observations Fruits and vegetables are low calorie Lean meats are low in calories. Avoid bread, tortillas, donuts and bagels Pizza is the devil. If you want to lose weight MyFitnessPal (MFP) could work for you.
