1 or a white-egg omelette stuffed with cottage cheese and alfalfa sprouts.
2 ** Calories are very important, especially if you're looking at serious weight loss and not just 'toning up' or building muscle. **
3 - Avoid juices in general, they're packed with sugar and hidden calories. Alcohol calories are brutal as well.
Don't try to lose weight with any short cuts. It's best to just take it in stride as a lifestyle change - the pounds will come off on their own, without even trying.
1- Egg whites wont be necessary unless youre trying to cut out cholesterol. Eat the whole egg and you'll be fine, even healthier at that.
According to the American Egg Board, an egg has 13 essential nutrients including protein, choline, folate, iron and zinc. The Harvard School of Public Health states that eggs also contain nutrients like vitamin B12, vitamin D and riboflavin that lower the risk for heart disease. It further states that an egg a day does not significantly impact cholesterol levels in healthy people and should be considered part of a healthy diet.
Egg yolks contain a high amount of dietary cholesterol, according to MayoClinic.com. It also states that the egg yolk contains about 213 mg of the 300 mg recommended daily amount of dietary cholesterol. If you have high cholesterol and choose to eat egg yolks, you should limit your cholesterol consumption throughout the remainder of the day.

2- Calories in food fuel the energy required for survival, physical activity, and the growth and replacement of cells. Surviving requires eating a minimum amount of calories per day so you have the energy to maintain a normal body temperature and keep your cells, heart, kidneys, lungs and other internal organs functioning. Men need about 1,300 calories daily to survive, according to "Essentials for Health and Wellness." Stored fat fuels your body's functions if you eat fewer than 1,300 calories until a lack of stored fat causes death by starvation.

I wrestled for years on about 800 a day to cut weight, but I was also 16 and only had highschool to worry about. A grown man should not starve to lose weight, nor should a woman. You can choose to do so but youre looking at lowering your metabolism significantly anyway so you might as well encourage a healthy body or you can gain all that cheated weight right back. 1600 a day will cut what you need and wont screw you over as long as youre not doing a ton of endurance or weight training.
3- This notion I dont like but cant argue with. Juice has a lot of calories even when pure, buuut you do need sugar and if youre going for a cookie the juice could curb that to a healthy snack. Fresh juice would be much better with no additives if done at home, no refined sugars no hfcs.
either way here is something for perusing
I believe this article is assuming someone is drinking shit juice from the store.
