The Freedom Diet guarantees weight control success. To lose weight, I'd advice a max 500 kcal daily deficit (or 10-20% reduction in calories). You can find out how many calories you need in a day here. Every single working diet out there is based on a caloric deficit. Might as well eat the foods you truly enjoy as you won't achieve long term success following someone else's monotonous, strict food plan.
