What you need to do is, and I say this to everyone trying to lose weight, have 5-6 small salads (leafy greens, throw in some carrots and broccoli, no dressing other than olive oil, vinegar, lemon if you so desire) a day. After the salad you can have your meal or snack as you usually would. The salad goes a long way towards filling your hunger and giving you the vital nutrients your body needs to burn fat. It's so simple, people. Don't make a science out of it.
Really, you're a smart one.
