Calorie counting, this is my personal preference when losing weight. Not based on scientific studies but based on my body.
Everyone's body is different and responds to eating habits differently, for myself this particular plan works wonders.
Calorie counting is the basic weight loss diet, it involves counting the amount of calories you eat/drink with the goal being to have a deficit of 3000 calories (this is equivalent to a pound lost). A normal caloric deficit diet is -500 calories per day. 6 days of a 500 calorie deficit is equivalent to a pound lost or a total of 5 Lbs in a 30 day period.
The key is to eat healthy foods 4-6 times a day (including snacks) that equal to you burning more calories than you consume.
In order to hit this deficit it is best to eat healthy foods that give you all the nutritional values that you need while staying low on calories.
For example if you burn 3000 cal in a day, to reach your 500 cal deficit you must eat no more than 2500 cal.
