What Foods Do You Give Up to Lose Weight?

What Do You Give Up First When You're Trying to Lose Weight?

Exercise tones those muscles and melts away fat, but when you want to look just a little less puffy for an important event, start the New Year with a new you, or just be able to slip on those skinny jeans a little easier, it starts with making some healthier choices in the kitchen. In fact, simple swaps like these can save hundreds of calories a day — leading to just enough weight loss to leave you feeling more confident in your clothes. Other times, it takes a more dedicated effort, like swapping refined carbs for more protein or laying off the sugary drinks. So we want to know: when you're trying to lose a few pounds, what type of foods do you tell yourself to give up first?
