Good comments above! For me, the only way I have been able to lose weight is when I am accountable to someone (or something) else...it was weight watchers before and this now...I have comitted to writing in everything I eat and weighing myself every Friday NO MATTER WHAT! This has been effective in dealing with my two personal biggest issues: mindless snacking and eating huge portions. I like to eat a lot of food so I have to choose my foods carefully. I have a salad every day...that gets me a ton of veggies and vitamins, esp. the ones that another poster referenced- dark green. I have a healthy cereal breakfast each morning. I allow myself some indulgences but keep my caloric intake between 1700 and 2000 calories a day most days (holidays and weekends are tough). Fruits are a better sugar than processed but too much is not great. My step bros uncle is a huge, well known food guru and his great quote is: Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.
