According to Kara Gallagher, Assistant Professor of Exercise Physiology at the University of Louisville, salad is the best food to eat when on a diet. Yogurt, fish and lean meat are also good for weight loss as they stay in your stomach for a longer time. She says fats should be kept between 20 and 25 grams per day, which is equal to a handful of almonds, a 4-ounce piece of salmon and a couple of slices of avocado. A 40-minute exercise routine every other day also helps lower weight fast.
