The reality of weight loss really is just eat less, but the reality of it being simple doesn't mean that it is easy for people to execute. One has to eat less, but they also have to eat the correct type of foods. You can't just eat 1 bag of potato chips because it is less than the 2 you typically eat every day. One must balance the types of foods that are eaten, and improve the overall nutritional value of the foods that are eaten. I would also argue that exercise is an important part of health and weight loss. For tens of thousands of years the human body has required upwards of 3,000 calories per day in order to function. In less than 150 years that has changed drastically. We still eat like our body needs it, but the reality is that most people barely consume 1,500 calories a day through their regular activities.
