Doctor recommended & simple diet for weight loss?

All you need: To do is get good quality healthy food and eat less of it than you burn off with exercise. You have to burn off 3500 calories that you don't eat to lose a pound. You don't need anything exotic or expensive or with a name on it. Find something you can follow for the rest of your life. Weight watchers and similar programs can help w/support. Good luck.

None: Protein powder does not have a significant role in weight loss. Reducing carbohydrate intake does.

Doctor recommended and most effective weight loss program that really work?

Dr. Todd Sontag
Family Medicine 16 years experience
Weight loss: All the diet plans work for a short term. The key to long term effectiveness is if the plan teaches you how to eat. Any diet that prohibits you from eating certain foods (like carbs) will not allow you to be compliant long term. The best one consistently rated the best by doctors is weight watchers.

What is the number one weight loss tip you know?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in
Dr. William Haynes
Endocrinology 37 years experience
Count calories: There is no easy answer to weight loss, but in my experience and the research literature, counting calories works best. The aim would be to keep daily calorie intake under 1600 for a man and 1200 for a woman. And not just counting, but writing down daily calorie intake and reviewing these records with your doctor/trainer/nutritionist every month.
