After launching this new generation of blogs earlier this week, I have received 100% positive responses from my readers. So, here is my second "BSB" -- featuring one of America's favorite topics:
BSB #2 -- The Basics of Weight Loss
In a nutshell, that video by Jeff Nelson of VegSource, suggested how we can lower our caloric intake without feeling hungry. Just load up on more whole, plant-based foods that have a low caloric density per pound. For example, most veggies, fruits, beans and legumes average between

Want to lose weight? Take a look at your "routine" meals & snacks, the ones you eat several times a week. Then, tweak them by replacing some of the calorically dense foods with more whole plants that have fewer calories per pound.
