No matter what the media sells in magazines, television, radio or online, there is no magic bullet, special formula or a secret to weight-loss. None whatsoever. Period. It’s all about simple math. Weight-loss occurs when calorie expenditure is greater than intake. No matter how many crunches one does or how many laps they run, it will always boil down whether calorie intake was lower than expenditure. However, not all calories are created equal. It takes longer to burn off fat than it does carbohydrates. The right balance of nutrition and fitness must come into play in order to achieve desired fitness goals.
In addition, you must evaluate and experiment with how your body responds to different types of calories. Some people do well with carbs, some do not. Some can handle excess fat consumption while others cannot. It boils down to each individual person and the types of foods are best processed by your system in order to help you achieve your goals. One of the reasons why diets fail is because they try to help EVERYONE lose weight. Guess what? EVERYONE is DIFFERENT. What may work for one person, will not for another.
