I could really use some advice as to what foods are good to boost metabolism and lose weight. Is anyone on any diets that are easy to follow, that you would like to share. I don't even know where to begin. Can someone please give me an example of what your daily food intake is (the types of food and how many calories per day)? Also i was wondering about protein shakes are they good for someone trying to tone up and Lose weight? Or should they be avoided.
And make sure u do it for like 3-4 weeks u will see some results
Have you tried out using myfitnesspal?
There aren't really any foods that raise the metabolism by any degree that makes it worth it to really pursue those foods. Your best bet is to reduce overall caloric intake just a little each meal. Drink more water. Avoid beverages with calories, avoid simple sugars like sweets and desserts. Eat more vegetables. Eat more fiber like whole grains, oatmeal..
Try controlled eating strategies, such as filling at least half your plate with vegetables.. Then after eating one serving wait 30 minutes and if you're still hungry go ahead and allow yourself to eat more.
I love chicken and rice so thats a really good option:)
And the hardest thing for me is soda and tea i have to have a little caffeine everyday. I love sweet drinks, i think that's what is holding me back because i can do the healthy eating and i eat very small meals and snack throught the day on fruits and whole wheat crackers, or protien shakes, etc and if i have chocolate its dark, but im having a hard time completely cutting out the sweet drinks. Are there any alternatives, i just have the hardest time drinking water :( im not a big fan )
What about juice would that be ok or is there to much sugar?? I just can not get my self to drink more than a few glasses of water a day especially while eating i have to have something other than water.. I've even tried flavored waters but im not a big fan of those either.

I drank about 8 to 10 cans of Pepsi a day. I hated water. I realized that it wasn't cold enough. Got a brita pitcher and an insulated water bottle and Poof! No more soda. I still need the caffeine so I take a pill. Get what I need without the calories and sugar
If you have a Jamba Juice near you, i recommend a Ginger and Greens. Tumeric and Ginger tea have many beneficial effects, if you add Cayene Pepper. A very spicy drink, but it will help boost metabolism, improves circulation, which then will improve skin ,digestion, and help with weight loss. The combo is also a detox, which will lessen joint pain and of course help lose weight.
Finally add a probiotic to take everyday. Gotta keep that digestive tract healthy.
