Michael Roizen, MD, Internal Medicine, answeredThe most effective way to lose weight is to keep portion sizes reasonable, eat well (avoid the 5 food felons), drink water, stay active by walking and adding cardio and resistance training to your workouts, find a buddy to support and encourage you, and keep stress in check. If you set reasonable goals for yourself in each of these areas, you will be well on your way to the mall for new pants.Helpful? 3 people found this helpful.
The most effective way to lose weight is to ensure that you consume fewer calories from food than the amount of calories your body burns through powering itself and performing physical activity. This can be accomplished by decreasing how much you eat, increasing how much physical activity you do, or a combination of the two. Creating an energy deficit (eating less calories and moving more) requires your body to use stored fat as a fuel source, which if kept up over time, will lead to changes in your body weight.

The most effective way to lose weight is to eat healthy, know your portion sizes, log all your meals and snacks, track your weight and measurements and exercise daily.
Your exercise should consist of at least 30 minutes of cardio five to six days a week and 20 to 30 minutes of strength training 3 days a week.
Joan Roth , NASM Elite Trainer, Fitness, answeredThere really is no magic formula for losing weight. It comes down to consistently burning more calories than you consume. A change in mindset also can lead to effective and lasting weight loss. With a new perspective comes behavioral changes like taking daily walks, skipping that midday snack or increasing workout frequency and intensity. It also helps to have the support of loved ones who want you to succeed so try to build a positive team around you.
Awareness is another component to consider. Tracking your eating with daily food logs can help you avoid self-sabotage and lead to healthier choices. Planning your meals also makes it easier to reach your goals without crazy fad diets.
Ultimately, moderation and consistency are key. Count your calories, exercise regularly and you'll lose weight the right way for a lifetime.
The most effective way to lose weight is to eat right and to exercise. If you are able to complete these two vital components then you will easily be able to lose weight.
To be a little more specific. When starting a weight loss program, you need to focus on your nutritional habits. To start, take all grains and discard them, pretend you are allergic. Grains will not aid in weight loss. Although, they provide great nutrients, they will not help you to lose weight. Next start eating lean proteins and vegetables. Eating fruits and nuts will also be helpful but be sure to eat 4 ounces or less of nuts on a daily basis.
As for exercise. Be sure to complete both aerobic and anaerobic exercise. You need to not only build your cardiovascular endurance but you need to increase lean muscle mass as well.Being able to complete all of the above will help lead to weight loss.Helpful? 3 people found this helpful.
