I have try â lot of dieet but I don't loose weight. I'm now 130 kg but for 10 years 100 kg. I eat healty, no fast food no soda. I don't know what to do?

Losing weight: Gimmic diets don't work! The only way to lose weight, is slowly, to burn more calories than you take in over time. That means you need smaller portions and more exercise. It needs to be a long-term commitment. You should shoot for no more than 0.5-1 kilograms of weight loss per week. A visit to a dietitian may assist you in figuring your calorie counts. Stick with it. Good luck. ...Read more

Yes: Your question uses the term "out-weigh" and that is one of several reasons it is true. The caloric load of most fast food - especially the 'happiness' choices - is extreme! It is a very unhealthy way to eat. Also, while I fully believe eating should be pleasurable, it's different than providing happiness.
