I'm not a nutritionist or a fitness expert by any means, but you don't have to be one to know that diet is about 75-80% of the workout regiment. The other 25% or so is just not cheating yourself and sticking to the workout plan they lay out. You can't do this by doing the brown paper bag diet or having the munchies at night before you go to sleep. That's the biggest problem I have. I smoke weed a lot at night before bed and I get VERY hungry and sometimes have just gone on hunger raids in my kitchen. Need to stop doing that or else I'm gonna be a fat bastard.
Try to stay away from dairy - only use skim milk if you have to, white breads or anything that isn't 100& whole wheat and really only supposed to have that in small portions. Peanut butter is good but has to be all natural..not Jiffy or the sweet stuff loaded w/ sugar etc. Fruits/veggies nuts/berries and eggs/fish/chicken are your friend.
