Nonfood Factors

Exercise as you normally would. Experts recommend at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity most days of the week. If sustained weight loss is your goal, you may need to continue to do 60 to 90 minutes of moderate- to vigorous-intensity activity three to five days of the week.

Is This Diet Vegetarian-Friendly?

Yes. Many vegetarian foods are lower in fat than their meat counterparts. A plant-based diet rich in whole grains and fresh fruits and vegetables will naturally be lower in fat than a meat-based diet.

Eating Out

The way a food is prepared will make a bigger difference than the food itself, so avoid fried foods in favor of fresh, grilled, or baked choices. Choose a vegetable-based sauce like marinara instead of a cream sauce. Opt for a salad as an appetizer (ask for the dressing on the side or avoid it altogether) and fruit at dessert.
