When you first sign up for your weight loss program you will sit down with a nutritionist or weight loss doctor and review the types of foods that you typically eat, and the types of foods that you know you should be eating. Working with a weight loss expert in this way can clear up a lot of the misconceptions about what you should be eating every day to help you reach your weight loss goal.
