  • For maintenance, keeping a good balance of healthy foods AND exercise has to be a part. There is no way I would have the energy I have without my body getting sufficient exercise at least 5-6 days a week. I really need this. It is a mood booster for sure! It is attainable. Park further from my destination, take stairs to different floors for bathroom breaks, get up move around, etc. It really works! - 9/12/2014 9:23:05 AM
  • 60-90 minutes is grossly unrealistic for the average adult. I work 10 to 12 hour days and commute over 2hrs per day. If I am going to have enough time to sleep and do all of my daily domestic duties, doing that much exercise is crazy. Exercise for weight loss isn't all that effective anyway. Exercising for health maintenance is a better approach. 30 minutes is doable. Telling people they need to work out 90 minutes per day is bound to turn some off of exercising. 80% of weight management happens in the kitchen. - 8/6/2014 5:59:58 PM
  • Very informative, thank you. 60-90 minutes exercise a day in small increments will be my focus. - 7/15/2014 8:54:15 AM
  • Very informative. Don't know if I agree 100% with all the information. - 4/16/2014 10:56:33 AM

  • Low fat or sugar foods can help you to lose weight, if you track calories. It's how I lost 120 ponds and have kept it off.

    Low fat and carb foods without tracking doesn't work because nothing works without tracking.

    If you're overweight you are bad at ambiently keeping track of your calorie inputs BY DEFINITION.

  • Got all but exercise. I exercise usually 90 to 120 minutes a day. But most articles tell you it's OK for just 30 minutes a day. So learned that the more the better.
    I'm doing pretty good, still in my goal range, over two and half years.

  • John Skim is right on. The old calorie in, calorie out slogan is plain wrong. http://news.healt

    ie-counts-are
    -wrong-6-diet-myths-busted/ As a Harvard and University of Florida study showed, calories coming from sugar sources, trigger a cycle of hunger because the body sends them to the liver for fat storage, rather than to fuel the muscles. Foods high in fiber, anti-oxidants and low-fat protein - lead to increased mood, awareness and activity. Whereas, foods dense in sugar make you feel down, hunger and lethargic. So if you are eating in your calorie range, but want to rush to the refrig for more food - don't grab the low-fat pudding, rather some lean fish or berries will be a better! - 1/30/2014 9:12:39 PM
  • I do not agree with the first one!

    Carbs first! - 1/20/2014 2:05:19 AM
  • I have heard the 60-90mins a day for weight loss, but that just seems unattainable. Days I get in 40-50 minutes at the gym I feel like that is Superwoman status for me. This just remind me a I still have a long way to go. I hope their comes a day when I can not imagine that I did not always stay so active, I want it to be that much a part of me! - 1/19/2014 11:14:58 AM
