Does it work to concentrate on one particular area of the body (say, legs or abs?).
Do you lose more weight if you become a vegetarian?
If one ate nothing except yogurt for lunch and breakfast would they lose weight?
a full body workout will do wonders.

Some of the vegetarians that I know are the worst eaters... cheese fries, potato chips, garbage food... but it's not meat so they call themselves vegetarians.

IMO you want balanced meals that include a good protein, carb and a good fat. One of my favorite breakfasts is oatmeal, a protein shake and some almonds. Which is:
Protein shake = 180 grams (3/4 serving) of ff milk, 100 grams of ff cottage cheese
Oatmeal = 1 serving of Quaker quick oats, made with water
Almonds = 1/2 serving

this equates to:
475 cals (probably more than what most people here take in for breakfast)
95.g fat (18%)
45.8g carbs (39%)
51.1g protein (43%)

This will usually hold me over for a few hours and give me some energy.
