The "Eat Your Favorite Foods" Way

When dining out, don't order the "healthy" choice if it's not what you want. Otherwise, you may end up eating more than if you'd just had some of what you craved.

Why try it: Healthy food has calories, but we tend not to count them, experts say. For instance, when people were asked to guess the calories in meals from Subway (often considered to be a healthy takeout option) and McDonald's, they underestimated the number of calories in the food from Subway, according to research from Cornell University. "Bottom line: You can eat what you want, even a cheeseburger, if you keep portions small," says FITNESS advisory board member Dave Grotto, RD, author of 101 Foods That Could Save Your Life.

Action Plan

Restaurant meals are higher in calories than home-cooked ones. Dine out once a week (including takeout) instead of three times.

DROP 10: In about a year -- without ever feeling deprived.

The caloric intake is too low and is only meant for people just beginning diet and exercise. This is not for everybody and is counterproductive in the long run.

The calorie intake is too low to maintain for a long period of time. It is scary to lose that much weight so soon unless it is all water.
