When I was speaking with my new client on Skype about how we will proceed to make her lean, mean and healthy, she said, "That is the most positive approach to nutrition I have ever heard."
There are some major misconceptions about fat loss out there. The biggest one is that dieting has to suck.
Completely giving up the foods you love is not necessary to get in great shape.
Sure, you will need to form some new dietary habits, and re calibrate your diet, but thinking you will need to give up your favorite foods forever is enough to make the process of getting in shape something you won't be willing to stick to for very long.
When you decide to change your diet in order to lose weight and look better, the first place you need to look is your total calorie intake. The second place you need to look is your macronutrient breakdown (protein, carbohydrates, and fat)
What foods make up your calorie and macronutrient goals comes next. This means that you can easily work in some of the foods you love (yes, even Oreo's) so long as you are eating nutritious food at least 90% of the time, and it fits in your caloric and macro goals.
Quick Side Note: Everyone has trigger foods. These are the foods you ma start to eat with moderation in mind, but before you know it you've demolished the whole thing.
Be aware of your trigger foods. While you're getting your diet in order and building new habits, trigger foods will be good to avoid.
