    When it comes to weight loss, what do you think actually works for most people?

    I tend to read into health-related topics like this on a regular basis. What I find strange is how many different views there are on the topic of weight loss. Some people say you can eat whatever you want and lose weight by just exercising. Others say you have to eat less to lose weight, no exercise is needed. Then you have people who say you need to eat less and healthy with exercise to lose weight.

    Based on my experience, cutting calories is not enough to see good amounts of weight loss. I think you need to cut back enough to not be overeating while being more active at the same time and this approach will work for most people. You should worry more about how many calories you are eating vs the actual food. I used to eat fast food all the time and this was when I weighed less. The reason behind this was because when I would eat fast food, it would be the only meal I would eat for the day. I would have a snack either sometimes before the meal or way later in the day. My calorie intake would be in a healthy range so I wouldn't gain anything from eating a crappy diet.

    TLDR: Do you think it is all about what you eat, how much you eat, or how much you move when it comes to weight loss for the average adult?

    I think trial and error is what it mostly comes down to. I doubt many people who have a need to diet find success right away. I also think that people who use the regurgitated "diets don't work" line are wrong.

    It's a subjective thing, really. Some are very open to trying (and enjoying) a lot of food, so a lot of more conventional diets would work quite well. For pickier eaters like me, finding a diet you're comfortable with is important. If you dread eating a lot of the food in a more restrictive diet eventually it'll fail.

    There's no shortage of choice for diets so I think there's probably something for everyone. People are too quick to judge diets. While I agree that many diets do come across as a fad, too many people write off diets that are pretty legitimate. I remember how I saw people saying that keto doesn't work because "Dr. Atkins started keto and he died because of it". He slipped on ice and banged his head. Some people get so fierce about diets and will latch onto any dubitably-sourced information they can find to somehow prove that another diet doesn't work. I don't get it.

    It really all comes down to eating less and moving more. More in-depth strategies still boil down to that. I'm still doing what i've been doing for months now, I eat a "real" lunch but for Breakfast & Dinner I just have protein bars/shakes & I try my best to go out for a walk every evening. The added walk time and reduction in energy from eating far less are my excuses for not posting here as often as I'd like to

    If you're male, then taking Forskolin will help a lot. It's a great mental supplement as well.

    Chromium and Cinnamin are also both really affordable supplements that might actually help without killing you. It mostly comes down to insulin resistance and working out with the right heart rate.

    So, make sure you have a low sugar diet. Take those supplements to help even more. And try to make sure you stay in "the fat burning zone" when it comes to your heart rate. That has to be calculated individually.

    What works the most is just motivation. I've gotten a lot stronger over the years despite having stayed at the same weight. At my current point, it's just a matter of getting enough motivation to add in some real cardio without screwing up my already damaged tendons. When it comes to eating and diets, I'm sure those work but most people just aren't willing to completely change how and what they eat. Especially given every sort of food is out there for you for more or less the same pricing. It's been slow for me, but I've been steadily changing my diet, changing what I do and don't eat. It's a lot of small steps but that's a realistic way to change things up for the better. Going "I'm gonna go for a run" when you've never even jogged before is gonna just burn you out and actively hurt you, making sure you have even less motivation to try again.

    I've tried to start limiting my meat intake to twice a week which has helped slim me down a lot for sure, but you're right in that most people won't change their diet. The biggest factors in what people eat are normally cost and convenience. That and just repetition of choosing what you know and are comfortable with.

    The primary reason I started reducing my meat intake was hanging out with vegans at campout festivals. Their food was always better for some reason, so I figured if they make better food maybe I could eat better and healthier. haha I can't give up meat fully but you can definitely eat well and more healthily with a bit of thought.

    The first secret I was given was a bit of salt, almond butter, and honey in your oatmeal in the morning. With a bit of milk it's just like honey nut cherious but as a hot meal and more substance.
