Exercise tones those muscles and melts away fat, but when you want to look just a little less puffy for an important event (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?
