What diet should I follow to lose 30 pounds?

Marisa Moore

For lifelong health, skip the diets. They come and go. Focus instead on eating plenty of fruits, veggies, whole grains and healthy protein sources (beans, nuts, yogurt, eggs, fish and lean meat).

The best diet is one that includes whole grains, lean protein (especially beans, lentils, legumes), colorful fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy or dairy alternatives and healthy fats. Balance, variety and moderation are the keys to healthy eating. Consider using the USDA choosemyplate.gov website to identify appropriate portions. Visit eatright.org for additional healthy eating tips as well as a referral to a registered dietitian in your area who can help you on an individualized basis.

I like the GoBeFull diet which stresses Greens, Olive oil or healthy fats, Beans, Exercise, Fruit, Unrefined grains, Lean protein. This plant-based diet with some animal protein, four to six servings of unrefined carbs, three servings of fruit and some healthy fat every day should serve you well.
