Doctor insights on:
Eat less + exercise: The most reliable way to lose weight is by eating fewer calories than your body burns up during a day.

Start walking 10 minutes a day. Increase till you're walking 30 minutes. When you're there, push for 2 miles/day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Im a bit chunky, extreme difficulty w weight loss. Heard of natural supplement Garcinia cambogia, it claims to greatly increase weight loss. Thoughts?
Not impressed: As a doctor who specializes in herbal medicine I'm very open to the use of herbs but am not impressed with Garcinia Cambodia; there have been several research studies on it and most show it is has minimal if any benefits.
