Consume an amount of calories appropriate for your level of activity
The largest cause of being overweight in this country is from eating a diet too high in calories coupled with a lifestyle that does not include enough exercise. The most successful strategy for staying at ideal body weight involves two things:
- Remove the junk fats and carbs from the diet, instead eating a large variety of healthful, nutrient rich foods. Get adequate and appropriate exercise.
- Seems really simple, but most Americans don’t do this.
