Calorie balance matters most in losing weight USA TODAY’s article “Low-carb plan tops in study” reported that dieters who followed a low-carbohydrate diet lost and kept off about 12 pounds over two years, losing more than others on a Mediterranean or restricted-fat diet (Life, July 17).
Stampfer said, “It takes a long time to lose weight, so you have to choose a diet that you can stick with for the long haul.”
Surely, it would have benefited more dieters to expand on this salient advice as opposed to providing details on a study that unwittingly promotes the “good food vs. bad food” wars, which lead to constant confusion, frustration and weight loss failure for most Americans.
As a lifestyle and weight management consultant, I believe that significant and lasting weight loss is achievable when you reject imbalanced dieting behavior and instead choose a personalized and comprehensive weight management solution that complements your lifestyle.
The most dependable and controllable law of weight management is that calorie balance will ultimately determine whether we lose, gain or maintain pounds.
Regardless of the calories’ source — carb, fat, or protein — it is the effective balancing of calories that matters most.
Sustainable balancing of calories for lasting weight loss requires a solution that is effective, flexible and enjoyable.
