Understanding Food

You need to have a diet plan for reaching any physique goal. For that, you need to understand macronutrients and micronutrients. 
Macro-nutrient: Proteins, Carbohydrates, and Fats are called macronutrients because we eat them in large quantities. Carbohydrates are the main nutrients that provide us with glucose and proteins are the ones that replenish our muscles. Fats help us absorb other nutrients like vitamins etc. 
Our body breaks down every macronutrient differently at different times in the day. So, if your focus is on weight loss, you have to make your diet in such a way that it supports your goal instead of making it hard to achieve.
Carbohydrates: There are mainly two types of carbohydrates- simple carbohydrates and complex carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates are those which get easily digested and converts to glucose. Complex carbohydrates are those which take more time to digest. 
Now, your approach should be towards complex carbohydrates because the one which does not convert to glucose fast gives you energy throughout the day, hence the energy is converted to fats. 
Choose a diet that has the majority of its carbohydrates as complex carbs and very less of simple carbs.

Protein: Proteins are essential nutrients that are one of the building blocks of the body’s tissues and can also serve as a fuel source when required. An increase in protein is necessary for muscle growth.
Fat: These are esters of fatty acids, or a mixture of such compounds, most commonly those that occur in living beings or in food and are necessary for building muscle.
Micro-nutrient: Vitamins and minerals are the two basic micronutrients our body needs. Vitamins are organic nutrients that can be broken down by heat acid or air, but minerals are inorganic and so cannot be broken down. 
Vitamin-B, Vitamin-D, Iron, Vitamin-C, and Magnesium are some of the vitamins that increase our metabolism and hence promote weight loss.
Having such vitamin-rich foods in the diet helps us tremendously. So consider the foods that are tasty as well as healthy.
