A New Survey Has Turned How You Diet to Lose Weight On its Head

It can be points or actually calories you're counting but a new JAMA scientific study finds that counting won't actually help you lose the weight.

It found that people who cut back on added sugar, refined grains and highly processed foods while concentrating on eating plenty of vegetables and whole foods — without worrying about counting calories or limiting portion sizes — lost significant amounts of weight over the course of a year.

Sounds easy?  I actually think this is the way to do it, think about it, they say diets don't work because people quit but this is a lifestyle that seems to be much easier.  

Sure it means changing up your habits but what's better, eating fewer of those foods or having to account for everything you eat. 

Soft drinks, fruit juice, muffins, white rice and white bread are technically low in fat, for example, but the low-fat group was told to avoid those things and eat foods like brown rice, barley, steel-cut oats, lentils, lean meats, low-fat dairy products, quinoa, fresh fruit and legumes. The low-carb group was trained to choose nutritious foods like olive oil, salmon, avocados, hard cheeses, vegetables, nut butters, nuts and seeds, and grass-fed and pasture-raised animal foods.
