Yes: To lose weight one must consume less calories than they burn. Exercise burns more calories but even at rest we burn calories.Sugars/simple carbs from grains esp.Cause weight gain. It's wise to avoid fried foods. I like dr. Furhman's diet: http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht dr. Weil has useful info: http://huff.To/19ygs8y- see his "discuss that" link in his article.Choose organic foods:http://bit.Ly/19xax7e.

It is true: Most of what contributes to a healthy weight is proper nutrition. Exercise is important for health but not really for weight management. There are many great websites, podcasts, and books on the topic of paleo lifestyle. You can learn all about how to eat well by looking into those.
