What is most important to weight loss?


38 posts in this topic

I heard this once and I think it's true. "You lose weight in the kitchen and keep it off in the gym." You need both to lose weight and to keep it off, but it still makes sense to me. If you want to change your body, not just lose weight, I would work with both a personal trainer and a nutritionist, if your budget allows.

DIET is the key. I also eat low carbs/high Protein and imagine I will for life. I enjoy exercise now, but it doesn't move the scale.

Increase fats ..... mediocre Protein and low carb ( next to no sugar)
Little cardio and more weights
Heaps of green leafy veg

But I am a meat lover and don't like all veg stuff. What should I do then??

Maybe we're not supposed to love food. I sort of decided of food doesn't have to be good I like being fit and active a whole lot more

Kelly take a look at the Ketogenic style of eating, you will find a lot of people are able to get fit and look good doing it. You can get your Healthy Fats from Avocado, Olive Oil, Almonds, Salmon and many other foods. You can find many wonderful recipes that increase the quality of food at the same time you are decreasing the Quantity of food.

Hello Peeps,
I am having second thoughts about getting the Gastric Sleeve.
I am wanting to do it myself the "natural" way.
I really do not want major surgery, but I HAVE to lose weight.
So, here is my question, what is more important to losing weight..... Diet or exercise?
What will make the biggest impact?
I know I need to do both, but I am wondering what is more effective.
Restrictive diet with little exercise? Or lots of exercise without very restrictive diet?
What should I be counting? Calories or carbs?


I was told to really watch the carbs. Cut out sugary soda and juices, eat fruits instead bc the Fiber helps them to stabilize blood sugars and fill you up. I know I'm ready for surgery after 15 years of back and forth with my weight, I'm ready to try this tool. Also walking and weight training help, I read that weights will actually continue to burn calories for hours after the work out.
