Is it possible to eat all the foods you love and still lose the weight? Well, it isn't possible to abandon for dieters all portion control and eat all the foods you love and still lose the weight, but it is possible to eat the foods you love in filling portions on a sensible diet while reducing calories and sodium.
What calories do to your diet depends on how "naturally" you reduce them. If you eat the same number of calories every day, your body will slow down its metabolism to burn fewer of them--making weight loss harder.
If you vary your calorie consumption, say 1200 calories one day, 1200 calories the next day, 2000 calories the third day but then getting right back on your reduced-calorie diet, your body will keep its metabolism running at a higher rate. The trick is making sure you get back your reduced calorie regimen on the fourth day to lose pounds. Eating a meal of sensible proportions at your favorite restaurant about twice a week can actually help your diet.
