Everytime I tell myself I will lose weight, I start exercising and eating healthy for a couple of days then stop. Now I have been exercising for a whole two weeks! but I still have problems with food since I don't know what to eat. Can you help me to set a healthy diet? :)

Try to eat healthy and limit your naughty foods. Look at eating junk food as a small reward. Just don't pig out on it. Make sure you're getting all your protein and stuff. You should be okay its all about moderation.

Okay, so eating healthy is actually really fun and easy! I can't tell you what food is healthy because there's just too much! But throw away all chips, cookies, sweets, etc. and buy a lot of healthy foods that you discover on your own(I recommend a bunch of fruits and veggies... ESP if for weight loss). If you have overeating problems then try to stay away from food unless if you are truly hungry! And if you do encounter unhealthy food just say, "I'm not eating that". It helps!

Stick to Meats, fruits and veggies when possible. Go get your healthy fats to. Try omega 3 suppliments so you dont have to worry to much about  that ;)

If you follow those simple rules eating healthy is really easy :)

Instagram and pinterest are good places for inspiration

Look for tags on Instagram  like:
Cleaneating
Healthyeating
Fitspo

Stock your fridge with fruits ad veggies! Actually meats and dairy can be very fattening.  Eat lean mean or chicken and only nonfat dairy. Every morning try a protien shake.  The biggest loser kind only has 50 calories!!! They will fill you up.  Also if your having a craving, pick up a water bottle not a candy bar! hope this helps!

Hi,

I was wondering about diet and nutrition too so I searched around a bit and bumped into http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/ I found the Healthy Eating Plate pic very helpful. If you have more time the site provides lots more information and even some recipes.

Hope that helps :)

Whether you are trying to loose fat or build muscle, earing clean will help.  Try and eliminate as many boxed and orocessed foods as possible.  If the ingredient has more than six to ten ingredients on it, look for something else.  It will take time and you will try alot of things and orobably throw away half of what you try, but stick with it.  Also it helps if you use an application like MyFitnessPal to help you track calories/exercise and Fooducate to help you maneuver through rhe grocery store.  Like I said, it is time consuming, but you are training yourself for a lifetime of healthy eating.  Aim for lots of fruits and vegetables, lean protein (chicken, fish, turkey) and at least 10 glasses of water per day.

I started using MyFitnessPal a few weeks ago and it has worked great so far, and it's free 
It counts calories for you and gives you a recommendation on how many to eat per day.
