Forget Fad Diets. Get The Facts On Weight Loss

“Weight loss happens in two stages that require two different approaches. First, there's the losing stage. What’s the second stage? Maintenance. And that's when exercise becomes much more important. By burning a few hundred extra calories a day, you can eat a little bit more, which makes the diet tolerable and easier to maintain. Exercise helps you find a healthy balance between the calories you consume and the calories you burn. Successful dieters typically exercise a lot — 60 to 90 minutes a day. That's not just a short walk. They really prioritize daily, vigorous physical activity.”
