Definitely true! You can eat the right amount of calories, but if those calories are all coming courtesy of junk foods you won’t see much in the way of results.

Limiting white sugars and starches will help. Try to eat lean protein at each meal (fish, chicken, turkey, certain cuts of beef). Make sure that you don’t cut out fat entirely – you’ll want to eat healthy fats such as olive oil and avocados. Getting enough fiber is also really important. Eggs are a great food to eat when you are dieting/trying to eat healthy. They’re cheap, filling, and one of the most nutrient-rich foods around (the bulk of the egg’s nutrients, as well as it’s fat, are found in the yolk, while just the white alone, is a great source of protein).

Good luck!

    First of all you need to find out how many calories you need. (Do you workout, are you active, do you have a slow metabolism, etc)
    Then in order to really eat “healthy” you need to have a well rounded meal plan, that includes; Protein, Fat, Vitamins, Carbohydrates, Minerals, and Water.

    A healthy diet should look something like this…
    45% to 65% carbohydrates.
    10% to 35% protein.
    20% to 35% fat, with no more than 10% saturated fat and very little (or no) trans fat.(Watch out for trans fats and saturated fats as they are unhealthiest fats to eat though)
    Water-at least 64ounces a day!

    In the end its about portion control and mind of matter.
    Good luck to you on your weight loss journey!
