Why Exercise is not the answer for weight loss

And cutting calories won't work in the long run. Usually when people cut calories they eat less of the crappy foods that helped them gain weight. Not starving yourself is good advice, but when you cut calories, that's basically what you're doing on a smaller scale... hence, the reason diets don't work over time.

People need to focus on eating healthy foods rather than losing weight. When you eat healthy, weight loss is a "side effect."

We need to eat plenty of good foods, rather than fewer bad foods.

Just something to think about.

I love this advice. I actually focus on making sure I'm getting the recommended amounts of vits, etc. and not overdoing the recommended amounts of sodium, carbs, etc. The old advice for dieters to shop from the perimeter of the store is some damn good advice too
