I believe that avoiding refined foods would be the first step for you to lose weight. They will taste excellent, but highly processed foods have got very little nutritional value, making you feed on more only to have enough electricity to get with the day. In case you are constantly consuming these foods, moving over to whole grains and other complex carbohydrates will help you have more vigor while having less. Interesting blog post.
