But sometimes you just need a fresh take on the whole thing, especially when it comes to what you're eating.   If your goal is to drop pounds over the course of one month, try to incorporate small nutritional changes to your diet that will allow you to work your way up to an overall shift in your lifestyle and give you the tools you need to achieve long-lasting results. Substitute a healthier version of the foods you crave without feeling like you're missing out. Want to know how you can save 1,500 calories this month and lose 4 pounds?
