What is the Most Effective and Sustainable Way to Lose Weight?

Exercise alone is an ineffective way to lose weight. Careful diet and nutrition alone is an effective way to lose weight. Diet and exercise combined is the most effective way to lose weight.

If you are exercising on a daily basis but not taking steps to eat foods that can help you lose weight, you will be healthier but you won’t necessarily shed the pounds. It’s very difficult to out-exercise a poor diet. On the other hand, if you are adopting a diet that you find works for your body and don’t have time to hit the gym as often as you’d like, over time, you will lose weight. The most effective and sustainable weight loss method is a pattern of exercising and dieting simultaneously.
